Episode 13: Samantha’s Story

 

This week, I interviewed Samantha Konikoff.  Samantha lives in Bellingham, Washington with her husband Isaac, their seven year old son, Evan, three year old Emma and dog Bella. She is a Warrior Mom Ambassador and has led two Climb Out of The Darkness hikes.

Samantha and her gorgeous family – that red hair!!!

Samantha has written for the Postpartum Progress blog – this post is a letter for struggling moms; and this post talks about breastfeeding issues.  Samantha wants to share her story so that other women know they are not alone.

In the photo below, Samantha is holding her son Evan after taking him home from the hospital.  Her mom took the picture because she thought it was a sweet moment.  Samantha, though, was miserable and if you look closely, you can see a tear on her cheek.
