Hi! Welcome to the Beyond the Birth Podcast.

Your goals for your body are yours alone. We (Jenny and Liz) do not want to tell you what to do with your body or what your goals should be; that’s for you to discover and work through as your life changes. But we do want you to know that we celebrate the way your body looks right now,the amazing things it has done, and will do. We want you to be healthy, strong, informed, and proud.
