This is the episode we’ve all been waiting for - Bode’s birth story! (Anyone else super excited to hear this story??)

She is so gentle and helpful with all the things. This episode goes SUPER behind the scenes of the birth story and gives you an update on how they are all doing!

  • All of the BTS of the Bode’s Birth story 
  • Why Audrey prefers a natural labor + delivery
