In this episode, I interview my friend Karrie, a postpartum and nursery RN, all about what she does to take care of patients during postpartum, recovery, breastfeeding, bleeding, and more!

Here are the questions we go over!

– What sort of work do you currently do – what kind of care do you provide? How long have you been a postpartum RN/how much do you work on the floor?
– What are some of the most common complaints you see moms/parents face in those first few days?
– Do you assist moms with breastfeeding, what is your philosophy on breastfeeding?
– Let’s talk about infant care – what are some of the common things new parents struggle with regarding infant care?- Let’s do a deep dive into wet/dirty diapers – what to look for, what’s abnormal, how much/how little should baby be putting out?
– For mom’s recovery, let’s talk about bleeding – vaginal delivery vs. c/section
– What are some of the most common things you wished everyone knew as far as postpartum recovery?
– Are there any MUST HAVE items that mom should have on hand in hospital or upon return to home to assist with recovery?
Karrie’s Bio:
I’m Karrie— a Postpartum + Nursery RN and mama to 3 young kids all 4 and under! I have been a Postpartum/Nursery RN in the hospital setting for 8 years and love the education portion of my job. After becoming a mother, myself, I really recognized how *little* the postpartum period is discussed— not just in the hospital, but at home: hormones, milk supply, no sleep, mental health, pain, and more. I created my Instagram page (@karrie_locher) & website (karingforpostpartum.com) to help educate, inform, encourage, and support other mamas. We can celebrate the bliss & support each other through the struggles motherhood brings. The biggest asset to the postpartum experience is being informed— I’ve got you.

Meet your host

Hi there. I'm Liesel!

As a labor and delivery nurse, I've spent countless hours with women who felt anxious — even fearful — about giving birth. I want you to know it doesn't have to be that way for you!

When you know what to expect and have the tools to navigate the experience, you'll feel confident and in control.

I believe you deserve a better birth — no matter how you deliver.
