Finding Empowerment and Meaning through your pregnancy or postpartum experience.

On this episode we are talking with Lisa Cross, LMFT about finding empowerment and meaning in your pregnancy, birth or postpartum story. This is an essential piece of making your way through the struggle that can come with pregnancy and postpartum. As you find your way through, your meaning may be very personal, your empowerment may only be known to you, or it could be a huge life changing experience. In any case, finding meaning or empowerment in our experiece can be incredibly healing.

Lisa is a licensed marriage and family therapist who is in private practice in Plymouth Minnesota and also serves as the Co-Director of a non-profit organization called Pregnancy & Postpartum Support MN.  She has a certificate of training in Perinatal Mental Health through Postpartum Support International.  12 years ago this, Lisa welcomed her first child into the world.  Along with her daughter came an illness called Postpartum OCD.  Unprepared for this disorder, she embarked on a battle to understand and overcome her illness.  It was this experience that lead her to focus her career in Perinatal Mental Health.
