Postpartum is a time of finding yourself in a new way. In a new role.

As a mother of three (my youngest arriving in early 2019) I have found there is still so much to learn about postpartum, even the third time around. 

Believe it or not, there are things I didn’t experience in my previous postpartum journeys that I am now learning with my third baby.

I love bringing you the postpartum interview series. My hope is to equip you and free you from any concerns or worries so you can belong in the moment with your baby

My name is Sophie Walker and I live in Melbourne with my husband Jonathan. We have three very active little boys who are 5 and 3 years old and 6 months. I have a Masters in Public Health and strong interest in Women’s Health.

I’ve been interested in babies and birth since I was very small and was thrilled to be able to further immerse myself in all things birth when I became pregnant with my eldest son, Niko. Despite planning for a drug free, birth centre birth I ended up having a 36 hour labour with a hospital transfer, induction, epidural, episiotomy, forceps and then a postpartum haemorrhage. So second time around I tried to skill myself up with as much information as possible to prepare myself for a second attempt at an unmedicated birth centre birth. With a two year old toddler and a part time job I found myself listening to podcasts and trying to find and listen to all things birth related.

After achieving a beautiful birth with my second son I have now decided to create Australian Birth Stories to help collate as many birth stories as possible. This podcast will serve as a library of women’s birth stories from right across Australia.

With love,
