Join Stephanie and Aglaée as they talk about their daily routines and how they both make sure to include time for self-care on a regular basis. Many moms feel guilty and selfish for taking time for themselves and create boundaries, but it is a true necessity for all moms. Including you! :)

You'll also hear many different examples and see that there is no one right way to incorporate more self-care into your days. Hopefully this episode will give you the inspiration and motivation to make sure you give yourself the time and space to take a break from your many roles (mom, wife, professional...) for a few hours a week so you can breathe and just be yourself.

Join us as we discuss how to improve your health with fermented foods, which include sauerkraut, kombucha, kefir, kimchi and yogurt.

In this episode, Aglaée interviews Sarah Ramsden and talk about what fermented foods are, how they can benefit your whole family and how to overcome your fear of making your own fermented foods. We also cover the safety of fermented foods for pregnant women, little ones and the whole family.

Which fermented foods have you tasted? And have you ever tried fermenting foods at home? Let us know in the comments below or reach us on our facebook page.

 

Sarah Ramsden's bio:

Sarah Ramsden is a Personal Coach and Nutritionist who believes that taking control of your health, is like a gateway drug for taking control of the rest of your life.

She is obsessed with fermented foods, and is the creator of “Fearless Fermentation”, where she provides online fermentation classes for beginners that dispel myths, and break through the worry of things going moldy. Her goal is to get fermented foods back on the dinner table as an everyday condiment.

In her work as a personal coach, she works with women who’ve won the battle with major health issues, but are left feeling like an imposter in their own life: out of place, everywhere they used to feel at home. Coached by a brain tumour survivor who’s been EXACTLY where they are, Sarah helps her clients stop wondering if they’re making the most of their second chance, and turn it into the most exciting and meaningful time of their life.

Join us as we talk about how to have a natural birth in the hospital!

In this episode, Stephanie interviews Cori Gentry, a certified childbirth educator, to discuss how to have a more “natural birth” in the hospital.

Women have a wide range of options when it comes to where they want to give birth and who they want on their birth team. Ultimately, the best choice is whatever mom and her family feel comfortable with.

We’ve talked about home births on past episodes, so today we want to open up the conversation and discuss hospital births. If a woman wants to have a natural birth, but feels more comfortable in the hospital, there are a few important things she needs to keep in mind.

This episode will help you feel more educated and empowered in the hospital whether or not a natural birth is your end goal.

Cori Gentry’s bio:

Cori Gentry is the owner of Birth Chemistry Birth Classes and is a certified Birth Boot Camp natural childbirth educator and an Evidence Based Birth instructor. She offers 10 week natural childbirth classes, 6 week home birth preparation classes, and Evidence Based Birth workshops.

Through the stories of her mother and family members Cori grew up believing that natural birth was normal. After studying Early Childhood Education at California State Monterey Bay, she became a childcare provider in 2005 and was surprised by how common cesareans and epidurals were among her clients. No one seemed to believe natural birth was achievable, and her hopes for a natural birth were often met with “You’ll be begging for drugs!”

Cori married the pop punk rocker of her dreams in 2007, and on Valentine’s Day 2009 Eric and Cori were thrilled to find that we were pregnant. They immediately sought a comprehensive natural childbirth class and when they discovered there were none in the area, she knew she would someday offer one.

Cori and Eric now have four sons, Milo is 6, Ashley is 4, Indiana is 2, and Everett turns one today (Dec 22). Her births have been very different. She has birthed at 38 weeks and after 42 weeks, at three different local hospitals and at home, with doctors and midwives, medicated and natural.

Advocating for options and safety in childbirth is something Cori lives daily. She is the President of the Birth Network of Monterey County, Co-Leader of the International Cesarean Awareness Networks (ICAN) of Monterey County, and on the Board of Directors for Improving Birth. Cori’s website is birthchemistry.com.

Join us in this episode as we learn more about EC (Elimination Communication) or infant potty training. Did you know that children are now in diapers until the age of 36-38 months today while they used to be potty trained before the age of 18 months back in 1957? Elimination communication is a gentle way to help your baby and toddler not only learn about how to get rid of diapers more quickly but most importantly to empower him or her to better communicate about the basic need to eliminate. Listen to our interview with Andrea Olson, a mom of 3 and an expert on the topic, to see how you can incorporate EC in your life.

Andrea Olson's bio: Andrea Olson, M.A., is a pioneer in helping parents reduce diaper dependence with any age child or baby, from birth through toddlerhood. She has her Master’s Degree in Psychology and presently lives in Asheville, NC, with her husband and children. She is author of three books: Go Diaper Free, a simple handbook for elimination communication for 0-18 month babies, The Tiny Potty Training Book, a simple guide to non-coercive potty training for toddlers 18 months and up, and the new Tiny Potty board book for children 6 months and up. She also created and sells a line of small children's underwear to support EC and early toilet training, called Tiny Undies.

Core and pelvic floor health is something that is often not considered during their pregnancy; however, during the postpartum period mom’s may notice that they still look pregnant, experience a little leaking when laughing or working out, or have pain in their back or lower body. It’s really important to address these issues to feel your very best! Wendy breaks down this complex topic and provides practical tips and inspiration. This is a must listen for pregnant women and women in the postpartum. Even if you don’t think you’re dealing with core or pelvic floor issues, you’ll want to tune into to understand how you can reduce or prevent problems in the future. We know you’ll love Wendy’s positive and empowering message!

 

Wendy’s Bio: 

Wendy is an expert in postpartum and postpregnancy exercise, and after working with thousands of women who suffer from Mummy Tummy (aka pregnancy belly and weak pelvic floor), she realized how misinformed most of them were, specifically when it came to exactly how their abdominal muscles change as a result of pregnancy. Which is why helping women to not only look and feel fabulous, but also to be strong, pain-free, supple and fully functional, continues to be her inspiration and motivation. Medically endorsed MuTu System is a 12-week program with a whole-body approach to alignment that can help help all moms, new and old, rebuild a foundation for a strong core with natural activation, a healthy pelvic floor, and will get them on the road to achieving their pre-baby body.

Wendy Powell talks about diastasis recti, core, and pelvic floor health.

Rochelle's mama manifesto:

I'm not sure why people insist on telling me that I'm denying my son experiences, or that he'll sneak candy & junk food behind my back as soon as he's old enough to do so (saying it in a tone to hurt me?). By educating & implementing healthy eating practices with my son I am not depriving him. In fact, I'm giving him a gift. Not only will he be set up with the building blocks for a lifetime of health, but he will be able to make informed & educated choices about the food he eats & the way that he cares for his body for the rest of his life. He will have many, many wonderful experiences. He will taste many incredible foods. He will be given autonomy to choose what he wants to eat & do, & I will have the knowledge that he is not doing so blindly.
