TRIGGER WARNING: The subjects of menstrual cycles, infertility, pregnancy, childbirth and hysterectomy are discussed in this episode.
Jenna drops in for a bonus episode to share the story of her recent surgery. After a long battle with infertility, resulting in the birth of her son via emergency c-section, Jenna found pain to be riding side-car to her life. Thinking this was her "cross to bear" she sought out to manage pain through Pilates, bodywork and meditative practices. It was a serendipitous series of events that led her into a surgeon's office to find out that there was, in fact, something wrong that was causing this pain. The end result was a laparoscopic hysterectomy. In this episode, Jenna shares the lead up to diagnosis, the decision for surgery and the way she navigated her experience from a place of empowerment and choice.
