Welcome to Season 2 of the Born Again Birth Podcast! We’re starting off with an episode incredibly precious to me, because I invited one of my very best friends in the world to be a guest! Brittany Arthur is a faithful follower of Jesus, a wife, a mother to four, and an accomplished professional who seeks to make much of Christ no matter the circumstance. In today’s show, she discusses the bittersweet calling of foster care, the pain of infertility and miscarriage – including how her family has incorporated the memory of their daughter Katherine into their life. She discusses her three very different hospital birth stories, including managing a Gestational Diabetes diagnosis, and how her approach to birth has changed over the years. We also discuss how her husband’s recent cancer diagnosis has given their family a new perspective on burnout and receiving help – words that all parents need to hear!
One way Brittany’s family honors the life of her daughter is by donating to a charity in her name each year at Christmas. Though the Arthurs make it a point to include Katherine in their daily life, special occasions such as including her on Christmas and birthday cards are a particular way they honor their daughter.
