After the premature birth of her son, Amber struggled to come to terms with the aftermath of her time in the NICU. She turned to books to help and stumbled across Labor Day: True Birth Stories by Today's Best Women Writers. Within the pages, Amber found solace –– a community of women who shared their childbirth experiences with candor and heart. Sarah A. Strickley stood out.

On this episode of The Tote + Pears podcast, Amber speaks with Sarah about the moving story that inspired the piece.
