EP 25: Centehua Sage on Body Image, Plastic Surgery, Self- Love and Intergenerational Mother Healing

Centehua shares her personal journey with her body image– of becoming a mother at 19, taking on her mother and grandmothers’ assessment of her body, and deciding to get a mommy makeover. She takes us through her journey of deciding to remove the implants at 40 as a ritual of self-love and self-reclamation.
