Body Image and Identity Transformation After Baby

Join us in this personal and informative episode, where we speak with our very own Charlotte Senseney-Stearnkind, Ayurvedic Touch for Postpartum instructor, and guests, Deborah Rose Schoutema and Nicole Trunfio. Deborah is the founder of Ayurveda Mamma and Nicole is the founder of Bump Suit Co, and they are both professional models and working mothers.  

In this episode we go into depth about the postpartum body and how pressure from society impacts our relationship with our bodies postpartum. Through storytelling of Nicole, Deborah, and Charlotte's personal experiences through the postpartum time, we uncover the importance of recognizing the sacred transformation of the body in modern day society. We dive into a unique point of view of the postpartum journey through the modeling industry and Nicoles story of how she took her difficult postpartum experience to empower herself and other women, to create a footprint on the industry. 

“I got into postpartum to really hear the after affects of how the birth was. How you feeling now about the birth and the image and who you are now and who you are continuously becoming and re-becoming”- Charlotte Senseney-Sternkind
