In this episode, Stephanie interviews Ali Miller, RD from AliMillerRD.com to discuss considerations for cesarean births including: the mental and emotional side of changing your birth plan, concerns for mom and baby, and tips for a speedy recovery! Ali shares her story of home birth turned hospital cesarean and how she took action to ensure optimal health for herself and her baby, Stella. It's a truly inspiring story!

Because our conversation was jam-packed with resources to support those planning or recovering from a cesarean birth, we decided to split the episode into two parts. That way, you'll be able to take in all of this great information without feeling overwhelmed (in a good way!).

Topics discussed in Part 1:

  • Ali's story
  • Her original birth plan and how that changed
  • How she managed the change in birth plan (emotionally, mentally, physically)
  • The differences between a gentle (or natural or family-centered) cesearean and a traditional cesarean

Topics discussed in Part 2:

  • Concerns of cesarean sections
  • How to address these concerns with a food-as-medicine, functional medicine approach
  • Considerations for mom and baby
  • Vaginal inoculation and supplements
  • Low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diets during pregnancy and nursing
  • How Ali feeds her toddler
  • Ali's practice, cookbook, and services

Ali's bio:

Ali Miller is an integrative functional medicine practitioner with a background in naturopathic medicine. She is a Registered and Licensed Dietitian, Certified Diabetes Educator, certified weight management specialist, recognized leader, speaker, educator, and advocate in her field. Ali has a passion to create public awareness regarding the significant role diet plays in our overall health and believes everything we put in our body can contribute towards optimal health or dysfunction and disease.
 
Her Food-As-Medicine philosophy is supported by up-to-date scientific research for a functional approach to healing the body. Ali’s message has influenced millions through media with weekly television segments, corporate outreach and within the medical community, and named one of Houston's 50 most influential women of 2015. Ali’s expertise can be accessed through her website: www.alimillerRD.com offering a blog, podcasts, online learning, and access to her practice in Montrose, Naturally Nourished.

In this episode, Stephanie interviewed Serenity and Joe from Serenity Kids, an innovative new baby food company. Serenity Kids offers convenient, shelf-stable baby food pouches that contain healthy animal fats and protein and are low in sugar. Join us as we discuss the fundamentals of baby nutrition, my son's experience using their products, and so much more!

Note: At the time of this recording, Leo was just being introduced to solids and was struggling a bit with a strong gag reflex. He's doing much better now (at 9 months) and can handle a larger variety of food and textures.

Topics discussed:

  • Their story
  • The current state of the baby food market
  • The downfalls of sugar and the importance of fat
  • The contents and quality of their product
  • How their recipes were created
  • Baby nutrition beyond food
  • Their future product and program ideas
  • And even, paleo child-raising, how to raise kids according to their natural instincts

Their story:

Hi. I'm Serenity. My partner Joe and I started Serenity Kids because we wanted only the best for our future baby. We couldn't find a baby food high in healthy fat and protein, and we saw how difficult it was for our friends who cook all of their baby's food. We were shocked by the amount of sugar in most baby foods, because sugar (even from fruit) creates inflammation which leads to health problems and can make a baby fussy from the blood sugar crash.

So we partnered with small, American family farmers to create a delicious baby food that contains meat from animals raised humanely, on pasture, without hormones, antibiotics, or GMO feed. Pastured meats benefit the animal, the family farmers, and the planet. The best part is that they're better for your baby because they have a much higher Omega-3s and CLAs than grain-fed meats. We blend these meats with high-quality organic vegetables to create balanced, nourishing meals. Serenity, for the whole family.

We also talk about organ donation, Ali's surrogate pregnancy, the biggest lesson she wants to teach her kids, how her mindset kept her going and how she gives us permission to complain and not compare our struggles. <3

Enjoy the listen! :)

Ali Barton's bio:

   Ali Barton is a licensed psychotherapist and wellness coach with a private practice outside of Boston, Ma. Currently, her most important job is a stay at home mom to her son Ethan, who was born months before Ali had her heart transplant in the summer of 2014. Ali has always been interested in health and real food, especially after getting sick with multiple autoimmune diseases related to undiagnosed celiac disease in 2011 – Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and ulcerative colitis. When Ali got pregnant  with her doctor's approval in 2014, her autoimmune disease spiraled out of control, and her heart went into failure due to a rare condition called endomyocardial fibrosis. Doctors recommended Ali to end her pregnancy at 21 weeks, and she refused to do so. Her son Ethan was born prematurely at 31, and is thriving today! She had her heart transplant  when Ethan was six months old.

     After her experience, Ali wrote a book called "Against Doctor's Orders", where she tells her story, and also talks about trusting your gut and advocating for yourself in a medical setting. The book will be published in 2017. She blogs at www.aliweinbergbarton.com. When Ali is seeing clients, she specializes in working with women with mood disorders such as anxiety and depression, and with those who have chronic health conditions that impact their mood and functioning.

Jessica Coll's bio:

Jessica Coll is obsessed with food. That is probably why she spent more than a thousand hours studying breasts. In addition to being a registered dietitian, she became a lactation consultant because breastmilk is a human being’s very first experience with food. Listen to this: everyone’s first real relationship is with food, from the womb to the spoon. For lots of us in North America, that relationship is troubled from day one. This is a story most people are trying to rewrite for the rest of their lives.

As a parent, you are in the most powerful position to help your baby transform this relationship into a love story. One that nourishes the body and the spirit.  When Jessica was six months old, her staple food was canned soup. She wants to make sure no human being has to suffer through this.

This is part of the reason why she created the BLW Online Course where she guides parents in this new adventure.  Get 50% off the lifetime access of Jessica’s Baby Led Weaning online course by entering the code REALFOODMAMAS at blw.jessicacoll.com).
