I am thrilled to introduce you to another amazing guest who will undoubtedly inspire us all. Wendy Jackson is a true force to be reckoned with - a midwife with more than 30 years of experience, a yoga teacher, a space holder, and a Mama Rising Coach. She has dedicated her life to helping women bring new life into the world, and her passion for her work shines through in everything she does.
Today, Wendy will be sharing some glimpses into her upcoming book, as well as her reflections on her decades-long journey as a midwife. Wendy is an expert in her field, having delivered countless babies and supporting mothers through some of the most challenging moments of their lives. However, her journey has not been without its struggles.
Wendy has had personal experience with the heartbreak of stillbirth, coming very close to it herself but for a miracle. Tragically, she has also supported other mamas through the unbearable process more than once throughout her career. While these experiences are undeniably devastating, Wendy has spent years in introspection and healing, allowing her to tap into a deep well of love and understanding. As a result, she has emerged even stronger and more compassionate than before, ready to continue supporting and empowering others.
Wendy's story is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and the power of compassion and connection to help us heal.
Today, Wendy is here to share her story with all of us, and to offer a glimpse into the world of midwifery and the joys and challenges of bringing new life into the world. I know you will all be as moved and inspired by her words as I am, and I can't wait to see the impact we can make when we come together in openness and compassion.
