If you're pregnant or postpartum or hoping to have a baby in 2020, I am SO glad you're here listening to this episode! My guest today is the queen of newborn sleep, Cara Dumaplin of Taking Cara Babies, but in this episode we talk about SO much more than sleep. We explore the relationship between sleep, mental health, the common experience of scary/anxious thoughts in postpartum, schedules, and honoring the needs of the WHOLE family (including yourself) when you're postpartum. You can follow Cara on instagram at @takingcarababies or at To find the article written by Dr. Cassidy for Cara's blog about scary thoughts mentioned in the episode, click here.
