This week my second son, Chance, turns 3 and in celebration of that I decided to record this episode for you on the decision and journey to have him.

This is a very vulnerable episode that wasn’t easy for me to record but I believe it’s an important topic to discuss. Themes I cover are why the decision to have a second baby was so hard for me, what I considered before making that decision with my husband, and what the birth experience ended up being like.
