As an adoptee, Rachel Safer tells us how that influenced her feelings around pregnancy. Her story sharing style is hilarious as she bemoaned all of the discomforts of her pregnancy. Rachel tells us about her hospitalization when she got Covid in her 9th month, how sharing her pregnancy with the public brought on lots of unsolicited feedback and teaches us a lesson about self advocacy to get the medical care you deserve.

Rachel Safer is the writer and creator behind @modestisthenewblack and rachelsarasafer.com. She is also podcast host to “A Safer Space” which can be found on Patreon. Rachel is an ASL student with hopes to become an ASL interpreter while she juggles all the dreams with the responsibilities of being a full time mom to her little guy AY.
