Sarah Wright Olsen at home with her children

Perelel Lives: Hospital vs. Home Birth, Working with Doulas, and Postpartum Healing Tips with Sarah Wright Olsen

Welcome to Perelel Lives, a podcast where we learn about the tireless yet vibrantly challenging role the women we admire most live in parallel to their careers and personal pursuits: becoming and being a mom.

We live in a society that glamorizes and celebrates women‘s careers, the companies they’ve built, and the movements they’ve created. But, what we’ve failed to highlight is a facet of their lives that is far more personal—a side that presents perhaps the hardest, but most rewarding job of all—a job with no PTO, no holiday breaks, no sick days, and no salary. Oh, and it also lasts a lifetime: motherhood. Here, we have real conversations about motherhood. (Not another parenting podcast.)

Which brings us to today's conversation...

Today, we're chatting with Sarah Wright Olsen, co-Founder of Your Zen Mama, host of the Mother Daze podcast, and founder of the clean skincare line for baby, Bāeo. She shares how she built her care team of doulas, midwives, and an OB/GYN, how she dealt with grief while pregnant, why she opted for hospital births after birthing her first child at home, her invaluable postpartum advice, and how she navigated two major shifts in her self-identity throughout her motherhood journey.

We hope you enjoy the conversation.
