On today’s episode I’m chatting with Supna Shah, the founder of We Go Kids and the mom of triplets. While Supna’s postpartum experience was challenging, she has turned all life has given her into wisdom that she happily shares with other parents needing encouragement. You definitely do not need to be a mother of multiples to appreciate all that Supna has to share. 

So grab a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and join us as we chat about breastfeeding three babies, the transformational power of going on a walk, and the one thing her doula told her that changed her whole perspective on successful mothering.
