The stunning Kali Sadler with her daughters Sage (3) and Olive (9 months). Kali had been on birth control for 7 years prior to conceiving Sage. She was ready to become a parent but her partner at the time was not. Still, she says they had a conversation and she put preventing pregnancy in his hands rather than burdening herself with unnecessary hormones. Within a month she was pregnant. Her pregnancy went very well and she enjoyed being pregnant. She had considered a homebirth but ultimately chose to deliver in a birth center. She and her partner studied hypnobirth which she says helped a lot through her pregnancy. Her labor was only 5 hours from start to finish and began with her water breaking at home. Once contractions came they were right on top of one another and she jokes that the only thing that got her to get dressed and get to the birth center was not wanting her midwives to see her messy house. Sage was caught by her father in the water without complication. Kali says that her body is really great at getting pregnant and delivering babies and because of that she never expected to have difficulty breastfeeding. Her milk came in right away and Sage nursed without issue by at 6 weeks her period came back and she began to struggle with supply. Kali says she didn't have a lot of resources at the time and soon began supplementing with formula and then eventually weaned entirely. She struggled greatly with not being to breastfeed as she'd hoped. Olive's pregnancy was unexpected but equally enjoyable and Kali planned a homebirth this time around. She had another 5 hour labor but says that this time it was mostly pain free and Olive was also born in the water into her dads hands. Kali prepared differently with breastfeeding this time and sought the help of an IBCLC. She has still had some issues with supply but is happy to still be nursing Olive at 9 months. Kali says that after gaining 70 lbs with her first pregnancy she was prepared for weight to stick around but not prepared for the loose skin and different breasts. Her body changes took a long time to get used to but she has worked very hard to fake it until she made it and is now in a place where she truly loves her body. She says she feels more beautiful, more sexy, more strong than she ever has and the confidence she exudes has attracted others as well. Kali and her husband are polyamorous and her acceptance of herself physically and has led her to not only be a better role model for her daughters but a better partner and a better woman all around. Kali hopes that her self acceptance can allow her to be an example for other women as well.
