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).

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.
