Very excited to bring on my friend, fellow pole athlete and stripper, Jenna Elissa. Jenna and I have known each other for sometime and she was supposed to come on before the pandemic hit but she’s finally here joining me on the show for a completely different topic: pregnancy. Jenna (at the time of recording) was 38 weeks pregnant, awaiting her first child. As a SWer, it can be both an exciting time in peoples’ lives. Exciting to bring life to a little human but terrifying, because planning for income loss, FOMO, and the segregation can be completely isolating and a burden.
Jenna opens up to us about managing her own expectations when it comes to her pregnancy journey, what methods she’s had to partake in order to not feel anxious or have FOMO, and what she’s looking forward to post-pregnancy. It’s an intimate, raw and honest conversation that anyone who plans to have a child and go through pregnancy might need to hear.
