Meet Our Podcast Host
Laura Bauder is a podcast strategist and the founder of PodcastHers Media. She encourages women to share their messages, as she had a powerful experience with podcasting following the birth of her rainbow baby in early 2019. A moment she had long awaited felt heavy, dark, and overwhelming.
For months, she grappled with the intense emotions and anxiety associated with postpartum depression before seeking help. One of the most healing aspects of this process was connecting with other women through the making of her podcast, Postpartum Perspectives.
Laura has a background in psychology and she truly believes that the best thing we as women can do for ourselves and our loved ones is to prioritize our own health and happiness.
Sharing our stories and supporting one another is transformational, and creating these communities is necessary for our continued wellness.
Laura lives in the Washington D.C. metro area with her husband and son, and she is honored to host and manage the Miscarriage Hope Desk podcast.
