Building Your Post-Birth Village

In this episode of the Birthful Podcast, we are going to be talking about getting the help you need for after the baby is born. You know the saying about how “it takes a village….” It’s because life with a newborn is much harder than you think! How much support will you need, and how can you go about getting it? To find out, I’ll be talking with Kristy Zadrozny.

About Kristy Zadrozny

Before being a doula, Kristy spent years specializing in Prenatal and Postnatal massage. But then, her clients started asking her to attend their births, and that radically changed the direction of her life’s path. Within a week of her doula training she attended her first birth and has been supporting women and families ever since. She is also a Certified Lactation Counselor and educator.

Kristy is an advocate for a woman’s right to have a healthy, positive birth experience in the environment of her choice. And her method in supporting women includes mindfulness, evidence based education, and an open heart.

In 2010, Kristy founded the Village Wellness Project, as a community of wellness practitioners with varying specialties, whom were operating and marketing under the same brand. After much success as a community, The Village Wellness Project has turned its focus toward education and support for families during pregnancy, birth and postpartum. In 2013, Kristy extended her support services further by launching Expecting(nyc): a pregnancy support center in Manhattan.

Most recently and most excitinglyshe is co-producing the documentary Expecting Support, with the hope of awakening people everywhere to the importance of birth and postpartum support.

You can get a hold of Kristy by e-mail, or join the conversation in the Expecting Support Film Facebook page. If tweeting is your thing, follow her at @WeExpectSupport.
