Each week the founder of #Empowerista, Alex Wehrley, interviews empowered, purposeful and successful women breaking barriers in a variety of fields.

Empowering moms postpartum and beyond

This week Alex Wehrley sits down with the founder of Mama Strut by PELV-ICE to discuss how they're filling a gap in postpartum care for moms. After Jill Bigelow (a mother herself) discovered a frozen glove was the common solution for pain after childbirth, the idea for Mama Strut was born. Along with providing this wearable soft brace for moms, PELV-ICE works to change the conversation around childbirth, in a society that thinks bouncing back means instant weight loss and looking good. Plus, we discuss the United States' high maternal mortality rate and how to balance running a business and motherhood.
