How does a seasoned meditation teacher process the uncertainty of birth, breastfeeding, and new motherhood?

After experiencing a radically different birth and postpartum than planned, Margaret Nichols, the founder of Urban Oneness, decided to share her motherhood story with Time Magazine in an effort to dispel the myth of “perfect motherhood.”

On today’s episode, Margaret is taking us deeper into her journey through pregnancy, birth and motherhood, sharing how she got interested in the practice and teaching of meditation and how her meditation mindset both prepared her and threw her for a loop during birth and postpartum.
