800| One Mom's Journey to Choosing Solo Parenting – Julia Karol

Julia is building a family – her way. Along the way, she is asking anyone and everyone about how they came to make the decisions they did regarding family life. She’s opening up an honest, funny, raw, and earnest conversation looking at what creating a family really means and how it might show up differently than expected. Join Julia as she explores the concept of today’s modern family on her podcast, Stork’d. Julia talks to everyday friends, family, neighbors, and experts sharing their own journey to define and create a family. When she is not hosting Stork’d®, Julia runs a private investment firm which acquires, operates, and improves businesses at a crossroads.  She loves supporting businesses to grow and evolve. If you ask Julia her role, she will say she is a mom, creative leader, warm friend, animal lover, and champion of alternative families. Connect with her via Instagram: @storkd_podcast or her Website: storkdpodcast.com.


Today’s episode is sponsored by Needed. Needed is the leading women’s health supplement brand recommended by nutritionally-trained practitioners. While most perinatal supplements include the bare minimum of the nutrients needed during pregnancy, Needed’s products are based on the latest clinical research and in-practice experience of nearly 4000 practitioners. Needed has all your needs covered, from your prenatal vitamin to pregnancy-specific Pre/ and Probiotics, to egg quality support, sleep, stress, immune and hydration support, as well as your protein needs for blood sugar balance and postpartum healing. Needed’s Complete Plan delivers unparalleled nourishment for every phase — whether you’re trying to conceive, pregnant, or postpartum! Instead of having to pair 6 different products together to meet your needs, I love that Needed has simplified things by bundling together four core products you need, in an easy and flexible monthly plan. Save 20% off your first order of Needed’s Complete Plan or any of their other perinatal nutrition products at thisisneeded.com with code BIRTHHOUR.
