Happy Monday, readers,
I have a beaut of an episode for you today. Last week Kim and I sat down to reflect on her skiing, climbing, running pregnancy. In our concise conversation Kim drops all kinds of inspiring wisdom and highly-relatable stories about finding her love of climbing during her third trimester, learning to listen to her body, and how she applied her experience mountaineering to the event of birth.
This empowering conversation charged my batteries and I hope you gain a charge from our conversation too.
PS: This is a picture of Kim snowshoeing on Mount Rainier when she was 41 weeks pregnant!
