Becoming a mother last year has given me an entirely different perspective on the entire process and I found a GEM of a woman I wanted to bring on here and share her expertise and insight with you. Karrie Locher is an incredible woman but just a badass content creator as well (you'll hear me hype her up multiple times about her IG feed) and we're here today to answer all of your submitted questions.

Meet Karrie Locher:
“I am Karrie-- a Postpartum + Nursery RN for the past 8 years! I work with mamas and babies right after delivery. I am also a mama to 3 young babes all 4 and under. I saw a lack of education about the postpartum period and actually getting home with your baby. I saw this void and wanted to work to fill it-- because mamas DESERVE that!”
You can her ob at @karrie_locher on IG, where she has TONS of free info in her highlights, stories + posts!
She has also curated more in depth courses for education + preparing for bringing home baby + breastfeeding here:
