Fourth Trimester Podcast Episode 15: Lessons of Labor

Imagine that you’ve just had your baby, and you can’t sleep because you’re so excited. What do you do? Do you grab a pencil and paper and write down every last detail about the labor and birth experience?

That’s what Julia Aziz did. Three times, in fact: once for each baby.

Writing down your feelings, thoughts relatively quickly after giving birth helps capture a raw version of your experience. The small details are easily forgotten over the course of the weeks, months and years ahead with your baby.

Years later, Julia compiled her writing alongside learnings she gathered from 20+ years working with parents as a social worker and teacher. The result was a book of four-page chapters that each include a birth story, a lesson, and guidance on applying the lesson in daily life. These are her Lessons of Labor.

Listen to Julia tell some of her wonderful stories on Episode 15 of the Fourth Trimester.
