Steph interviews Austin McGuffie (a.k.a Metabolism Mentor), about self-directed nutrition for kids. Austin is passionate about distilling confusing nutrition topics into easy-to-understand pieces of content that the general public and kids can understand. He believes that providing education leads to autonomy around food and helps kids make better choices. In the episode, they discuss how to approach nutrition education with kids in a way that balances freedom and oversight. They share their own struggles with feeding their littles, and how they navigate situations like birthday parties and meals/snacks at school. You’ll learn strategies for cultivating self-directed eaters no matter where you’re starting.

Topics Discussed: 

  • What “self-directed” nutrition means
  • How to guide kids towards healthier options
  • How to talk to kids about food and nutrition without shame

Dr. Julie Greenberg is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor (ND) and Registered Herbalist RH(AHG) who specializes in integrative dermatology.

Dr. Elana interviews birth educator, Care Messer. Care was Dr. Elana’s personal hypnobirthing instructor and she couldn’t help but share her on the podcast as she is full of knowledge, and passion, with a great sense of humor for all things birth related. 

On today’s episode, they discuss how to prepare for a natural birth. You may be surprised with how many tips and details there are that can make a true difference in how you approach labor. Whether you are prepping for labor in the hospital, birth center, or home birth, this episode is for you!

Topics Discussed: 

  • The most important things parents should do when preparing for a natural birth
  • When parents should start preparing
  • Top 3 things parents need to do in preparing for birth
  • Why a birth plan/birth preferences is important to consider before the baby comes
  • Why postpartum prep is essential as part of preparing for birth
  • Most important postpartum tips for a smooth transition into parenthood

Show Notes: 

After six miscarriages, Care fostered a five-year-old little girl, named Angie, whom she was finally able to adopt at eight years old. In 2008, Care discovered Hypnobirthing for the birth of her second daughter and it changed her life’s path. Her second daughter was born with severe special needs but it was her birth preparation that prepared her for such an unexpected postpartum time. Care began teaching Hypnobirthing in 2009 and founded the Birth Education Center in 2011. She is a Hypnotherapist, birth educator and a birth and postpartum doula. She specializes in fear release work, authentic communication and consciously connecting parents with their babies before they are born. It is her belief that babies can experience a “birth day” that is magical, loving, and gentle. When families take the time to resolve fears and advocate with their voice, birth can become a beautiful, positive experience.
