Today’s interview is a special one for me. Samantha Kimura, or Sam as I call her, and I were childhood friends. We would dress up in my Mom’s shawls and have tea parties, make forts in her basement and visit many a playground in our neighbourhood.
Since those days we’ve lived very different lives, but they began to align as, in our thirties, we both suffered with postpartum depression; me with my first child, Sam with her second.
But this podcast is not entirely about postpartum. Sam and I talk about her experience as a nurse, what brought her to choose nursing as a career, and what she’s learned about life from her patients.
As one of the rare people that wed their high school sweetheart, I ask Sam how their relationship has evolved since their early twenties.
We talk about her new role as a Mama Coach, her mission to make mom’s lives easier, and what it’s like being an entrepreneur.
Most importantly, we talk about how important it is to ask for help, to be authentic and to share your truth.
I’m so honoured to have Sam join me this week.
