Andrea Ahonen is on this episode sharing her motherhood journey with us. 
She starts with sharing her birth stories of her two daughters who were both "big babies." She had completely different experiences after doing research and finding a provider to support her choices. Andrea was later diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2017 and went on to have two more babies. This last year she learned of a surprise 5th pregnancy.  She opens up about the loss of this pregnancy on this episode.  Andrea's story so beautifully portrays the ups and downs that come with motherhood.  She is an inspiration and a perfect guest for this Mother's Day episode.
