Twiniversity founder Natalie Diaz was invited to share her twins birth story on the popular podcast The Birth Hour, hosted by the lovely Bryn Huntpalmer. Nat talks about everything from trying to get pregnant, to her infertility treatments and IVF, finding out “it’s twins!”, and the wild story of her preeclamptic pregnancy and early delivery of Johnny and Anna — the twins who started this little world we call Twiniversity — and her struggle through a NICU stay and postpartum depression.
You can download The Birth Hour on iTunes, Stitcher, and pretty much any podcast app out there. Also, check out the show notes page, which also includes the recording if you want to listen to it on a web browser.
