Andrea Ahonen is on this episode sharing her
motherhood journey with us.
She starts with sharing her birth stories of her
two daughters who were both "big babies." She had completely
different experiences after doing research and finding a provider
to support her choices. Andrea was later diagnosed with Multiple
Sclerosis in 2017 and went on to have two more babies. This last
year she learned of a surprise 5th pregnancy. She opens up
about the loss of this pregnancy on this episode. Andrea's
story so beautifully portrays the ups and downs that come with
motherhood. She is an inspiration and a perfect guest for
this Mother's Day episode.
