In this episode we interview Ellie Young. Ellie is an Australian edge-dwelling registered midwife, qualitative researcher and writer. She has worked with women and families for over 15 years within the permaculture and traditional nutrition space whilst supporting women choosing to give birth outside the system. After midwifery training, Ellie went back to attending homebirth within her community, whilst undertaking a research study on women's experience of the transition phase of physiological labour during freebirth. This inquiry led her down the rabbit warren of all things nervous system, somatics and the Polyvagal Theory, whilst exploring women's unique perceptions of peak intensity within physiological labour processes. She's now a self-confessed geek for the rewilding of childbirth through understanding the social nervous system at play during birth and positioning it within a biopsychosocial model. Her work in the world is now firmly centred on supporting women and midwives on their paths to reconnection with self, the body, intuition, female physiology, birth and this precious earth. We discuss all this and more in this episode of cauldron.LINKS: Ellie Young: @newmoonmidwifeBlog Post: No Woman's LandDr Rachel Reed websiteSupport the show

Michelle knew all of her life that she experiences medical anxiety and convulsive syncope. So, when she started thinking about her deep desire to grow a family, she started educating herself and preparing strategically. Knowing herself and her anxiety challenges, she started planning for an unmedicated birth. Along the way, her strategies included eventually changing OBs who would be more supportive of her preferences and needs, hiring a doula, doing lots of research and taking birth class. This is a story of how this preparation contributed to her well-supported, uncomplicated, unmedicated hospital birth.

A joint investigation by The College of Policing and Fire & Rescue Service and the Independent Office for Police Conduct has found that there are ‘systemic deficiencies' in the way some police forces deal with allegations of domestic abuse against their own officers. We discuss with Deputy Chief Constable Maggie Blythe, National Police Lead for Violence Against Women and Girls; David Tucker, Head of Crime and Criminal Justice, College of Policing and Nogah Ofer from the CWJ. It's a big year for women's football and the Women's Euros begin on Wednesday but women have long been playing the beautiful game. An exhibition at Brighton Museum called Goal Power! Women's Football 1894-2022 features the stories of veteran players and Charlotte Petts asked them for their memories. A new study has shown that children who are born at or just before the weekend to disadvantaged mothers are less likely to be breastfed, due to poorer breastfeeding support services in hospitals at weekends.

Broccoli Reduces Your Risk of Four Major Diseases University of Illinois, June 23, 2022   It's one of the most advantageous veggies you can eat, and love it or hate it, broccoli offers an array of health benefits. University of Illinois researchers have identified candidate genes controlling the accumulation of phenolic compounds in broccoli. Consumption of phenolic compounds, including certain flavonoids, is associated with a lower risk of coronary heart disease, type II diabetes, asthma, and cancer.   Sulforaphane in broccoli can also help to prevent or slow the progress of one of the most common forms of arthritis. Scientists have also discovered that broccoli protects the skin against the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays.  Many studies have shown that a diet rich in vegetables -- particularly brassica vegetables such as broccoli -- is linked to decreased risk of heart disease and stroke. The researchers crossed two broccoli lines and tested their progeny in terms of total phenolic content and their ability to neutralize oxygen radicals in cellular assays. They then used a genetic technique called quantitative trait locus analysis to search for the genes involved in generating phenolics in the most promising progeny.   By identifying the genes involved in accumulating these compounds, the researchers are one step closer to breeding broccoli and related Brassica vegetables like kale and cabbage with mega-doses of phenolic compounds.   The good news is that phenolic compounds are flavorless and stable, meaning the vegetables can be cooked without losing health-promoting qualities.   Once these vegetables are consumed, the phenolic compounds are absorbed and targeted to certain areas of the body or concentrated in the liver. Flavonoids spread through the bloodstream, reducing inflammation through their antioxidant activity.   "These are things we can't make ourselves, so we have to get them from our diets," Juvik says. "The compounds don't stick around forever, so we need to eat broccoli or some other Brassica vegetable every three or four days to lower the risk of cancers and other degenerative diseases."       Can Chronic Cellphone Use Hinder your Infant's Development? Environmental Health Trust, June 23, 2022   The two most important communicative mechanisms a newborn innately has to navigate his world are eye gaze and crying. From birth, newborns are constantly developing speech, language and communication skills with every response they command from their caregiver. As early as 5 days old, an infant can tailor his cries to reflect hunger, wetness, or discomfort as well as differentiate between mother and caregiver. Additionally, very early on newborns and infants develop prelinguistic skills: eye gaze (signaling a cue for communication) and joint attention – the ability of an infant to rest his or her gaze on a object at the same time the caregiver is looking at the same object. It is speculated that eye gaze between baby and mother is one of the most important prelinguistic skills to occur before verbal communication develops.   However, excessive cell phone usage can work to hinder the communicative rhythm and bonding experience that new mothers and infants work to establish, especially within the first six months. Communicative cues can be easily missed and trying to decode differences in newborn cries (hunger vs wet diaper) can become very difficult. As it is so important for new mothers to pay attention to different cries, constant distraction from a cell phone can alter the way the other perceives the cry, thus making it more difficult to decode.    Infants are so intuitive early on, that even the slightest delay in response to a coo or a cry can alter the way they perceive their world. Additionally, if a mother is perusing high-emotion content that is so pertinent in Facebook and social media, the overflow of emotion may inadequately color her response to the infant.   Breastfeeding can also be affected by a constant need to search the web or pursue Facebook, taking away from a significant bonding period for mother and baby, according to Erin Odom.    Physically, the mother may be present but mentally they are “somewhere else”. Many mothers use the cellphone to pass the time during the long nursing/feeding sessions of early infancy. However, infants are highly communicative during feeding, and texting and social media, when so engrossing, can distract a mother from the needs of the infant.   Chronic cell phone usage such as texting and social media usage could absolutely hinder infant development as a result of missed cues on the part of the mother.    The early months of a newborn who continuously has to wait for mother while looking at the cellphone before responding, to cry initiation for communication or other cues, the brain's connections will actually reorganize around this delay, later dampening the development of instinctual communication between mother and infant.         Yoga And Meditation Could Potentially Reverse The Genetic Effects Of Stress Coventry University (UK), Antwerp University (Belgium), Radboud University (Netherlands), June 21, 2022 A review of multiple studies focusing on the effects of mindfulness practices like yoga and meditation has found that these efforts may have the potential to reverse genetic expressions of stress. As the analysis, published in the journal Frontiers in Immunology, explains: While some MBIs, such as yoga, Tai Chi, and Qigong, have a strong physical component, others like meditation and mindfulness, breath regulation techniques, and the relaxation response (RR) are mainly sedentary. Despite the variability in these techniques, they all seem to produce various psychological benefits on healthy and clinical populations, such as the reduction of perceived stress , the alleviation of depression, decreases in anxiety, or to help in coping with a chronic medical disease. However, it is less clear what are the mechanisms underpinning the self-reported benefits of MBIs. Noting that there is some speculation that “MBIs increase gray matter in the brain regions related to emotion regulation, learning, memory, self-referential processes, and perspective taking,” they acknowledged the evidence is not conclusive and set out to delve deeper into the genetic expressions of stress and how MBIs may affect them. The review analyzed 18 studies “that used gene expression analysis in research on meditation and related MBIs [mind-body interventions].” Ultimately, they found that “meditation and related MBIs [were associated with] downregulation of NF-κB-targeted genes, which can be understood as the reversal of the molecular signature of the effects of chronic stress.”h useful information unless the relationship between gene expression and psychological variables is directly explored.”   Curcumin-piperine combo may support heart health for diabetics: Study  Baqiyatallah University of Medical Science (Iran), June 25, 2022 A combination supplement containing curcuminoids plus piperine from black pepper may support heart health for diabetics by improving the levels and functionality of cholesterol, says a new study. The combination reduced total cholesterol and non-HDL cholesterol levels, and improved levels of Lp(a) [Lipoprotein(a)], a structural component of LDL. “Although elevated Lp(a) has been considered as an important risk factor for premature atherosclerotic CVD for quite a long time independently of LDL-C and non-HDL-C levels, until very recently, the possibilities of influencing Lp(a) were extremely limited,” wrote scientists from Iran, Croatia and the USA in Complementary Therapies in Medicine . “Hence, this finding that curcuminoids as naturally occurring dietary supplements can decrease elevated Lp(a) in patients with [type 2 diabetes] is very important since such supplements are becoming more and more popular and attractive to the patients.” On the other hand, the curcumin-piperine combination significantly increased HDL levels by 1.56 mg/dL, compared to only 0.2 mg/dL in the placebo group.   Parkinson's is partly an autoimmune disease, study finds Columbia University, June 21, 2022 Researchers have found direct evidence that autoimmunity—in which the immune system attacks the body's own tissues—plays a role in Parkinson's disease, the neurodegenerative movement disorder. The findings raise the possibility that the death of neurons in Parkinson's could be prevented by therapies that dampen the immune response. The study, led by scientists at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) and the La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology, was published in Nature. "The idea that a malfunctioning immune system contributes to Parkinson's dates back almost 100 years," said study co-leader David Sulzer, PhD, professor of neurobiology (in psychiatry, neurology and pharmacology) at CUMC. "But until now, no one has been able to connect the dots. Our findings show that two fragments of alpha-synuclein, a protein that accumulates in the brain cells of people with Parkinson's, can activate the T cells involved in autoimmune attacks. "These findings, however, could provide a much-needed diagnostic test for Parkinson's disease, and could help us to identify individuals at risk or in the early stages of the disease." Scientists once thought that neurons were protected from autoimmune attacks. However, in a 2014 study, Dr. Sulzer's lab demonstrated that dopamine neurons (those affected by Parkinson's disease) are vulnerable because they have proteins on the cell surface that help the immune system recognize foreign substances. As a result, they concluded, T cells had the potential to mistake neurons damaged by Parkinson's disease for foreign invaders. The new study found that T cells can be tricked into thinking dopamine neurons are foreign by the buildup of damaged alpha-synuclein proteins, a key feature of Parkinson's disease. "In most cases of Parkinson's, dopamine neurons become filled with structures called Lewy bodies, which are primarily composed of a misfolded form of alpha-synuclein," said Dr. Sulzer.   Vegetarian diets produce fewer greenhouse gases and increase longevity, say new studies  Loma Linda Health University, June 25, 2022 Consuming a plant-based diet results in a more sustainable environment and reduces greenhouse gas emissions, while improving longevity, according to new research from Loma Linda University Health. Based on findings that identified food systems as a significant contributor to global warming, the study focuses on the dietary patterns of vegetarians, semi-vegetarians and non-vegetarians to quantify and compare greenhouse gas emissions, as well as assess total mortality. The mortality rate for non-vegetarians was almost 20 percent higher than that for vegetarians and semi-vegetarians. On top of lower mortality rates, switching from non-vegetarian diets to vegetarian diets or even semi-vegetarian diets also helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The vegetarian diets resulted in almost a third less emissions compared to the non-vegetarian diets. Modifying the consumption of animal-based foods can therefore be a feasible and effective tool for climate change mitigation and public health improvements, the study concluded. "The takeaway message is that relatively small reductions in the consumption of animal products result in non-trivial environmental benefits and health benefits," said Sam Soret, Ph.D., MPH, associate dean at Loma Linda University School of Public Health and co-author of the studies. "The study analyzed more than 73,000 participants. The level of detail we have on food consumption and health outcomes at the individual level makes these findings unprecedented,” Soret said.

When it comes to parenting, there are thousands of books with myriad bits of advice for soon-to-be-parents and those who are already parents and facing some kind of struggle. Sometimes it can feel overwhelming when we think of all the bits of advice out there. One would think we don't need more, right? But what if you are a parent who just can't see yourself in any of these books or pieces of advice? What if you just aren't represented? This has been the reality for many LGBTQ+ parents and hopeful parents when they browse the books that are incredibly heteronormative. And as we all know, when you aren't represented, it's hard to know where to turn or to feel like you're even supposed to be a parent. Joining me this week is Dr. BJ Epstein Woodstein to discuss her new book "We're Here: A Practical Guide to Becoming a LGBTQ+ Parent" where she not only offers advice for those who have not be previously represented, but also advice for the rest of us on how we can support everyone in their parenting journey.

Hello! This month's Q &A begins with a story from one of our Instagram followers on the pressure to have a vaginal exam to document cervical status so that her doctor can schedule an induction that she didn't need or want.

What can be done about plugged ducts and "Is my haaka helpful or hurtful?" Do I have to be on my back for a cervical exam?  What are the risks of external cephalic version for breech babies? Is it normal to have no libido at four months postpartum?  Should I use castor oil to induce labor? What is actually necessary for baby care; do we really need all the things? Why is cord prolapse dangerous? And finally, why is postpartum sex so painful?And if you want a lot more Q&A content, please subscribe to Down To Birth + on Apple subscriptions to get our extended version of this episode.

Dr. Jennie Bever is a lactation consultant, also known as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), that supports mothers who currently are or plan to nurse their babies. She works with moms and their sweet little munchkins to help them on their breastfeeding journey, which is something very primal and important, but also something that is not necessarily intuitive or easy!Jennie's first child was born while she was still in graduate school, and the challenges she experienced during her 4th trimester inspired her to become an IBCLC and start a clinical lactation practice, the Arizona Breastfeeding Center. In addition to her private practice, Jennie co-founded 4th Trimester Arizona, a nonprofit with a mission to change the culture of parenting so no one has to do it alone and the vision that all families are embraced by their communities in their transition to parenthood. Jennie's job involves inquiry and investigation, interacting with awesome moms and adorable babies, providing suggestions and resources, and more. This career choice is great for people who are interested in clinical or healthcare-related fields, as well as people who love children, but don't necessarily want to work in childcare or education.  ResourcesArizona Breastfeeding Center4th Trimester ArizonaContact Info:Jennie Beverhttp://www.azbreastfeedingcenter.com/Jennie's LinkedIn ProfileJulie Berman - Hostwww.womenwithcooljobs.com@womencooljobs (Instagram)

In this episode Dr. Carole Keim MD covers baby illnesses and red flags. A red flag is a sign something could be wrong with your baby. Dr. Keim explains abnormal temperatures, choking, diarrhea, head injuries, seizures, and more to guide you in identifying red flags and what they might mean.Not all red flags are emergencies that require immediate attention. Some are, but some are identified as urgent, which means your baby should be seen by your doctor within the next week or two. Dr. Keim shares this list of major red flags to watch for in the hopes it helps you, and ideally saves you and your baby a trip to the ER.This episode will cover: What is a red flag?Urgent v. EmergentAbnormal Temperature - emergencyApnea/Cyanosis - emergencyAspiration/Choking - emergencyBlood in the Diaper - urgentBulging Fontanel - emergencyCough - emergencyCOVID/flu/RSV exposure - urgentDiarrhea/Vomiting - urgentHead injury - emergent if signs of concussion/fx, otherwise urgentJaundice - urgentSeizure - emergencyUmbilical Cord Infection - urgentUmbilical Granuloma - urgentWhat is a red flag? - 00:24A red flag is a sign that something MIGHT be wrong and you should run it by a doctor.  Urgent vs. Emergent - 00:37Urgent = should be seen by their doctor at the next available appointment, ideally within a week or two.Emergent = they need to be seen that day (sometimes immediately) - go to the ER or call emergency services.  If you are traveling, look up the phone number for emergency services before you go.  It's 911 in the US but different in other countries.It is ALWAYS ok to call your doctor or emergency services if you are concerned!Abnormal Temperature - emergency - 1:15You should have a rectal or temporal artery (TA) thermometer at home.  Go buy one if you don't have one yet.  The rectal temperature is the most accurate in babies, since their skin doesn't hold heat very well.  If your baby is acting strange, or feels especially warm or cool to the touch, you can check a rectal temperature.  Underarm temps and infrared forehead temps are inaccurate after the first few days/weeks of life - they can read either too high or too low by as much as 2 degrees.  They are ok as a screening, but they are measuring surface temperature and not core temperature, so if you are concerned and want an accurate read you need to do a core temperature - either rectal or TA.A core temperature higher than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius) is considered a fever.  A rectal temperature less than 96 degrees Fahrenheit (35.5 degrees Celsius) is considered to be hypothermia.   Babies who are less than 6 months old have immature immune systems, and an abnormal temperature (either high or low) can be a sign that they have an infection.   Apnea/Cyanosis - emergency - 3:29 If your baby appears to stop breathing for several seconds (apnea), or starts turning blue (cyanosis), it's time to call a doctor.  Cyanosis is most apparent on and around the lips, fingertips, and toes.  Aspiration/Choking - emergency - 4:10Signs of aspiration/choking include gagging, coughing, arching the back, vomiting, and turning blue.  Call your doctor if your baby is experiencing these symptoms, or 911 if it's severe.Blood in the Diaper - urgent - 4:46If you see blood in your baby's diaper, and you think it is coming from the urine or stool (and not from pseudomenses), call the doctor.  This is urgent but not emergent.Bulging Fontanel - emergency - 5:30If the anterior fontanel (soft spot) seems to be higher than the rest of the skull, this is a sign that the pressure around your baby's brain is too high.  The fontanel will often raise during crying, straining to poo, and other normal maneuvers.  That is nothing to worry about.  But when the fontanel is bulging when your baby is calm, you need to see a doctor.Cough - emergency - 6:33Hiccups are normal, sneezing is normal, but cough is not.  Clearing their throat after eating doesn't count as a cough.  Any baby less than 6mo with cough needs to go to the ER - they are at risk of apnea and may need to be admitted depending on how they are doing.OTC cough medicines are NOT to be used in children less than 6 years of age - they can cause them to stop breathing, and the safe ones (like antihistamines) just don't work.COVID/flu/RSV exposure - urgent - 8:47Call your doctor or check the CDC website for current guidelines. Everyone in the house should wash hands often.  Anyone with cough or runny nose should wear a mask and try to stay away from baby.  If you're breastfeeding and you have COVID/flu/RSV, keep breastfeeding!  You're giving passive immunity to your baby that way.  Just wear a mask so you don't cough onto the baby.   Breastfeeding babies: mom can take Vitamin C, Vitamin D, echinacea, and zinc to pass through breastmilk to baby.If baby develops cough or fever, go to the ER if under 6 mos, or call your doctor if over 6 mos.  Diarrhea/Vomiting - urgent - 12:09Babies can get dehydrated very quickly from diarrhea and/or vomiting.  Call your doctor if baby has vomiting or diarrhea 2-4x in the same day; go to the ER if it is more than 4x in a row or if baby is showing any signs of dehydration: dry lips/tongue, sunken fontanelle, irritable, lethargic.It's ok to rehydrate babies over 6 mos by giving water or an electrolyte solution (pedialyte, ORS) to replace losses, but only in small volumes - check with your doctor about how much is ok to give.  Remember they are on a primarily liquid diet, and giving electrolyte solution can cause them to be protein/fat/calorie depleted.  Head injury - emergent if signs of concussion/fx, otherwise urgent - 14:22Any time your baby falls off a surface (couch, changing table, bed, etc.) you need to call a doctor to make sure your baby did not sustain a concussion.Signs of concussion include:Losing consciousness / faintingVomitingChange in personality - persistent crying, acting strange, trouble sleeping/eating, etc.Pupils unequal sizeSeizure Weakness of the entire body or parts of the bodyIf you feel skull crepitus (a crunchy sensation under the skin) or if baby's fontanel is raised, that is an emergency.  Crepitus = skull fracture, bulging fontanel = bleeding around the brain. Jaundice - urgent - 18:07If your baby's skin and eyes appear yellow, you should call a doctor.  Most babies will have jaundice at some point, and your doctor can do a test to determine the level of bilirubin in the blood to see whether the jaundice needs treatment or not.  If the level of bilirubin is too high and is not treated, it can cause brain damage.Seizure - emergency - 20:02Infantile seizures may be the whole body (generalized shaking and tremors), or may only involve part of the body.  Some signs of seizures are:The whole body or part of the body makes repetitive jerking movementsSucking when there is nothing in the mouthFast blinkingEyes deviated to the sideIf you think your baby might be having a seizure, remove anything that might be in baby's mouth, make sure your baby is not left unattended on a surface, and call an ambulance.If you are able to take a video of the seizure, it can be very helpful for the doctors to see that!Umbilical Cord Infection - urgent - 22:35If the skin around the umbilical cord is red, swollen, warm to touch, and tender, these are signs of infection.  Umbilical Granuloma - urgent - 23:42When the umbilical cord falls off, it's normal to have a little bit of bleeding and what looks like yellowish goo.  After the cord has fallen off, clean the area gently with a wet washcloth or a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol.  The bleeding should stop immediately, and much of the yellow goo will come off.  If the umbilicus is still bleeding, or there is too much yellowness, there may be an umbilical granuloma in there.  This can be treated easily at the doctor's office with a chemical called silver nitrate.  The chemical cauterizes the granuloma, and the process is completely painless for your baby.All of this information is also in The Baby Manual book, which is available for purchase. Remember it is always okay to call your doctor or emergency services if you have concerns about your baby's health.  Resources discussed in this episode:The Baby Manual - Available on Amazon--Dr. Carole Keim MD: linktree | tiktok | instagram

When Brooklynites Megan & Ted decide to try to get pregnant around the beginning of the pandemic, they're surprised to conceive immediately. After seeing an OB and desiring less rushed time and more holistic care, they eventually land on giving birth at Brooklyn Birthing Center with midwives and a doula. Megan's taken aback and challenged when she experiences 3 days of prodromal early labor with very little sleep. Eventually, labor kicks into gear once her water breaks. After pushing for 3+ hours and being told she may need to transfer to the hospital, their doula smartly encourages Megan to try an asymmetrical position that helps the baby get past the pelvic brim and finally be born. Megan & Ted also share about how well-supported they were not only in labor but after birth, too, and how important that was when Megan experienced some baby blues, surfacing in temporary anxiety and uncharacteristic irritability.

Welcome back after our break and I hope you enjoyed the last few weeks and maybe even used that time to check out some of our older episodes that always stay relevant for families! This week, we're back and talking about the transition to parenthood. In the transition to parenthood, many of us realize that who we are is going to fundamentally change. We don't know how, we don't know how we're going to cope with it, but we expect a change. What we don't often think about is the effect on our relationship if we happen to be entering parenthood as a team. How we relate to our partner can shift fundamentally and often the first few years post-parenthood is a tumultuous time for couples and results in a higher than usual rate of separation. Why does this happen? What can couples do to help prevent this and stay together? Joining me this week is Nora Wright, couples therapist and founder of The Family Hive where she teaches Gottman's Bringing Baby Home program to help parents adapt to the transition to parenthood without wanting to kill each other. If you feel that your relationship has suffered or you're anticipating a new arrival and worried about how that will change the dynamic of your relationship, don't fret - things can always change.

No matter what your diet's like today, we all likely started life eating the same thing: breast milk, formula milk, or a bit of both. But both of these products aren't always easy to come by. Breastfeeding can be difficult or impossible for some parents, and formula milk isn't always safe, affordable, or even available — as we're seeing in the US, where formula milk is currently 70 percent out-of-stock. This episode, we tell the story of how we got here, and we explore what we should we do to make feeding babies easier in the future. Along the way, we find out what makes human milk—or "white blood," as it perhaps should be known—so unique, as well as why Parisian attitudes to feeding infants in the 1800s made it known as a city with no children. We've also got the story of when formula was first invented, the dirty tricks used to market it, and the competing pressures and changing advice that have swung the pendulum from "breast is best" to formula and back again.

Dayalan: I'm Dayalan Clark. I'm a breast surgeon from the UK. I came out to Kijabe mainly to help because Beryl [Akinyi] has been on maternity leave. Beryl is the surgeon who does most of the breast work here, and Peter Bird, who we have known for many, many years, asked if we could if I could come and help. Peter grew up in India as a missionary child with his father being a surgeon and a missionary hospital, at a mission hospital in India in a place called Mysore. And it so happened that my wife's father was also a surgeon in the same hospital, and they grew up together across a wall as neighbors growing up in India. And that was my connection with Peter Bird. I think my wife and Peter lost connection, though our respective parents kept in touch. And then when we were visiting Nairobi for a safari in 2006, we heard that Peter was here. So we were going for a safari with my wife's parents. It was their 50th wedding anniversary and they loved wildlife. So that was our treat for them for their 50th wedding anniversary. And they said, “Oh, Peter is in Kijabe, let's try and meet up with Peter.” So we came and visited Kijabe had lunch with Peter.  In 2006 I took an early retirement from my work in the NHS in the UK with the express purpose to go and help mission hospitals in need. And then in 2019 I came out to Nairobi with a group of breast surgeons from the UK to train to do a training course and a teaching course in Nairobi, and who was on the local faculty to spread the word. So we met up again and I was telling Peter how I had taken an early retirement with the express view of going in and helping mission hospitals in need. And then he turned around said, Oh, would you be able to help in Kijabe if we needed us at all? I'd love to come to catch up if he needed me. And then of course, Peter was leaving last year and Beryl was going on maternity leave. So he contacted me and said, Can you come and help us while on maternity leave? And so I'm here. That's how I'm here.  David: That's amazing. Did you and your wife meet? How did you meet? Dayalan: I went to medical school in India, which is a Christian medical school called CMC Christian Medical College Vellore. And we were classmates in Vellore and we met there and got married after we finished our house jobs and then did some mission service, which is part of our obligation in India, then did our respective postgraduate training and in Vellore again, myself in general surgery and my wife in pediatrics. And then it worked again in mission hospitals in India and then went out to the UK in 1991, never intending to settle in the UK. But God, God's wills are strange and we never thought that's going to be the plan. But that's what happened. And I was very conscious that because we've trained in Vellore, I've always grown with the feeling that I consider myself very fortunate, coming from a very average background in India. My father was a minister in the church and retired as the Bishop of Madras. So very ordinary background, but consider ourselves very fortunate to have been able to have gone to the UK and to made a career there, to become consultants there and always felt as soon as my children were on their own feet, I'm going to stop working, retire and try to give back to people who been less fortunate than myself. Wow. David: Wow. That brings up so many interesting questions. I'm not super familiar with India, but one of my dreams is - this is why I was so excited to meet you is I heard from from Dr. Nthumba when we were starting Friends of Kijabe - he said, "you need to learn about Vellore, you need to learn about this place." And so, I'd love to hear about that. But then also I'm curious just what. . .you said your father is a minister and then became a bishop. Most people in America associate India with Hinduism, Jainism, Sikhism.  Is Christianity regional? Dayalan: Christianity is much more common in South India than in North India.  Where I come from, which is South India, but the population of India is huge. As you know, 1.3 billion people and 2% are Christians. So, 80% Hindus, about 10% are Muslims. And then, like you said, the other communities like Sikhs, Jains and such like from the rest of it with Christianity being 2%. So even Clark, which is my surname, is a very Indian name, but the background to that is one of my forefathers must have been converted. And when you convert it from Hinduism to Christianity, the way you denounced your previous religion was either you took on a biblical name or you took on a very western sounding name, often a missionary who converted you. I presume one of my forefathers was probably converted by someone called Clark or decided to take on a Western sounding name. And that's how Clark has come down the generations. David: Wow. So, there's a tradition that the Apostle Thomas went to India, right? Dayalan: It's historic. Legend is that he came down to this west coast of India, which is Kerala, and then traveled down and then actually came through Tamil Nadu where I'm from, near Chennai. It's called Saint Thomas Mount. And they say that that's where he probably last either left India or died there. We don't know. But I don't think there's enough factual evidence but that's what they think happened. Yeah. David: Interesting. It's not until really spending time in this part of the world that realize Christianity developed very differently than I perceived. Southeast Asia, Africa, a lot of the early church fathers were in those places. It was not a European thing until much later on, which I think is fascinating. Dayalan: Yes.  Considering Christianity arose, Christ lived in Jerusalem in the Middle East, I think proximity-wise you can see why it happened that way. Egypt is not far from where it was and you have flight to Egypt when Christ was born. But it doesn't surprise me. Definitely there was quite a lot of Christianity around this region and moving both east to us [in India]. David: Wow. I think my understanding of our previous conversation - tell me if this is accurate - that Vellore is probably a picture of what Kijabe could be like in, I don't know, what you would say, maybe 20 or 30 years? Dayalan: Quite possibly so. I mean, the first thing that struck me when I came to Kijabe, I saw the community spirit, the closeness, and how well people got on together. And the first thing that struck me, especially with a lot of missionaries here, the first thing that struck me was this is below in the fifties or sixties because Vellore was very similar. There's a Christ-centered Mission Hospital, which was largely supported by Americans and some British missionaries, both in terms of the day-to-day running of the hospital and in personnel, which I see exactly what is happening here. And Vellore has then gone on to become one of the leading institutions in India, both in teaching and in terms of health delivery. And my only prayer is that hopefully 30, 40 years Kijabe is going to get there. One of the things that Vellore has, which probably is an advantage for them, having developed so quickly and so well, is a medical school, which I think we don't have yet in Kijabe. But I think if we have Christ at the center, everything else will follow. And I can see great things happening in Kijabe, just in the services that I've seen, in breast cancer care itself, I can see there's huge scope because we've just had a mammogram machine installed. Oh, yes, which is fantastic. And then I've helped in helping the radiographers from here, going to Aga Khan and MP Shah to get some training and of course, we're going to have a breast radiologist coming from America, starting in August. So, with this mammogram machine, we have a state-of-the-art absolutely fantastic machine, and then if we have a breast radiologist to actually drive that forward. I can see Kijabe being a fantastic breast unit going forward.  David: That's amazing. So you went from Vellore, you went from a very faith-based medical system to the NHS, which I assume was not the same. No, no. What was that like? Dayalan: The NHS as a health provider is absolutely fantastic.  You have, which I think most developed countries should aspire for, a health delivery system that is free at the point of delivery irrespective of your social status, your economic status, or who you are. Absolutely fantastic health delivery system. But one of the issues with that is that it's very secular, even though the British consider themselves a Christian country. I think that's far from what's practically happening there. So, it wasn't an issue for me. I am still involved in my church. I sing in the church choir. I'm actively involved in church activities. They've been very supportive of me coming here and by their prayers. So that balanced it out. And yes, it was different. But I think the professional satisfaction that I got from treating my patients, knowing that irrespective of whatever treatment they needed, they got it, irrespective of their economic status. And I think that is something most countries should aspire for. Any developed country that doesn't do that I think is really failing their people. And so I think Britain and the NHS is a fantastic health delivery system. It's huge and any huge system like that will have flaws, will have deficiencies. But as a principle where they can deliver good quality care which is completely free at the point of delivery, I think the NHS is fantastic. David: What does India's delivery system look like? Because you're doing a lot of fundraising for the people who are not able to pay, correct? Dayalan: Yes. So now in the UK, we have a group very much like Friends of Kijabe called the Friends of Vellore UK. And because Vellore has been training medical students for about 80 years, they have people in various countries. We have friends of Vellore in the US and the UK and Australia and in different parts. And the original role of these organizations, are charities that were set up by mission. Those who went from the UK to the Vellore worked there, came back, and raised funds from their local churches. Equipment that was not being used by discarded by the NHS was being shipped back to Vellore. So, Vellore depended a lot on these Friends of Vellore in the different countries. But the law has now got grown so big and it's completely self-sufficient for their day-to-day running for their equipment. So they don't need the Friends of the Vellore UK anymore for that. So, we've turned our focus towards paying poor patients' bills. And one of the things that often used to worry me is that, yes, the law is a fantastic institution. They give brilliant care, tertiary care for people. But what about the poor man living on the street outside or just two miles away from the law? Where does he go? I mean, he doesn't have a chance of paying those bills. Vellore has now moved on in that 15% of their income, which is a large amount, is completely for charity. Dayalan: And they're moving towards no patient will ever be turned away from the law because of lack of funds. So that's where we come in and we have said no more capital investment from us. We are going to concentrate on paying for poor patients' bills and they have a very good system which was set up in the seventies called person to person. So, a person in the UK donates money for a person in the Vellore. So that money is then raised and sent to Vellore. Vellore administers that. Every penny that that person in the UK donates goes directly to paying that poor patient's bill. And the person who in Vellore UK who donates that money gets a report of the patient that they treated and whose bill they helped to pay. That was set up in the seventies and is a very popular way of helping poor patients because the donors love it. They know exactly what's happened, the social standard, how much the bill cost, and what either the patient or their parents earn. So that was that's a very popular program and Friends of Vellore the UK that is our main contribution. David: I just had to pause. In 1970. So that meant you had to send a letter for every single patient that was helped. Dayalan: That's right. It was snail mail in those days. I remember as interns and as house officers actually filling in the form for a PCP form. Whenever the consultant knew that this patient is is not going to affect, they'll turn round to the junior, which was us. Can you please fill in a PDP form? We would then go into the patient's history, the economic background, where they live, what they earn, how many meals they have, how big their house is, and then all that details are then put together. Then the money is sent from PCP and then a sort of report is compiled by the administrator and by Vellore, and then sent by mail to the people in the UK. David: I'm just absolutely floored because I associate this with organizations like Compassion International. This is normal now. This was not normal in 1970 by any stretch of the imagination. For somebody working in the charity space, it's just mind-bogglingly cutting edge. That's so cool. Dayalan: I think Vellore has been just miles ahead of everybody else in India and even abroad. One of the other things, just to give you an example was the medical admissions when we got into medical college. So, you did an entrance exam where you qualified and then you were called for an interview and the interview took three days and the interview was hardly anything on the subject material. But it's basically to understand what is the aptitude of this individual person. Does the CMC think that this person is someone who has the aptitude to go back and serve? That was the main crux of the interview. We had personal interviews, we had group tasks, we had individual tasks, we had psychometric tasks. This is going back 50 years when it wasn't even envisaged. In the UK we now started bringing this in for our medical admission. And I was saying, “Guys, we've been doing this for 50 years at Vellore.” I think Vellore was really miles ahead of everybody else in lots of their programs and lots of their thinking and a lot of their projects. David: Yeah, that's just amazing. Wow. Is there anything you see at KJB that reminds you of what that's like? Like what are common threads? Dayalan: Well, I think the common thread is the Christ-centered attitude of what you're doing for your patients. Nobody is interested in personal gain or personal glory.  All you are interested in is that God's name be praised and that patient getting well. And I think that's probably the first thing that struck me when I came here. That's it, I think the most important thing in health delivery system within a Christian ethos. So that was the first thing that struck me. The second thing that struck me is the training system is so similar. Vellore was started by an American missionary, Ida Scudder. The training system where residents do what they were doing here, like the PAACS (Pan African Academy of Christian Surgeons) training system, the residents take personal responsibility for the patient they're looking after. They present in rounds. They know everything about that patient. And the training system was very similar. And I think what I appreciate with PAACS, even more than what we had in Vellore is ours was mainly service-oriented. Here you've introduced some teaching into it. Also, you have, at least in surgery, regular teaching sessions which we didn't have in the Vellore. The onus was on the individual to go read up. And whereas here [in Kijabe] you have a structured training program with structured teaching from starting from the basic sciences, going right up to the operating skills, which is fantastic. David: How do how does the skill level of our [Kijabe] trainees match up to other places you've been? Dayalan: I think the training here, the skill level is fantastic, and I think it's what I like about the system is it's actually geared towards the African setting in that they have a general training which we don't have in the UK. We've moved away completely, but the UK can afford to do it because it's a developed country and they have the NHS which will look after everyone, whatever they need is, whereas here it's not the case. And so, I think the training is very broad here, very good here. And having seen the final-year residents, I know they're going to be doing the exams shortly and they will go out and I'm confident they would be able to manage most surgical conditions. And when I say surgical, not in the narrow sense of the UK, but in the broad sense of what Africa needs. So I think the skill levels are absolutely fantastic for this residency.  David: For some of the non-medical people listening. What are the biggest surgical needs for Africa? Dayalan: I think the surgical need for Africa is to be a generalist where you can actually have a basic understanding of surgical diseases, know what the pathology is, and be able to quite rightly identify the problem and treat it adequately. One of the things I've noticed here is I've seen lots of patients being referred from elsewhere who actually have no knowledge of how that disease should have been treated but are willing to have a go because of either bravado or there's a financial incentive because if they did something surgical, they're going to get paid for it. And I think that's where PAACS really stands out in that they've grown them quite well and by the end of their training they know exactly what to do. David: Do we know why breast cancer is so common? I know we're a referral center, so I have a skewed sense because that's so much of what we see in Kijabe. Why is it so prevalent? Why is it affecting young people? Do we have answers to those questions? Dayalan: Interestingly, the statistics we have shown that breast cancer is a disease of the developing country. When I was in India, working in rural India and Assam in the last few years, I didn't see very much breast cancer, rural India, villages, not so much. You go to the urban cities in India, it's more common. And similarly, Kijabe seems to get a track because of the reputation we have of having treated breast cancer for a long time. With Peters reputation, we are a referral center for lots of people around the area and so I think Kijabe and Kenya are also going in the direction of the other developing countries where breast cancer is getting more common. And I have a simplistic view to this and I've discussed this with you before in that the things that increase your risk for breast cancer, even though each of them is small, are much more common in the developed countries. Things like the oral contraceptive pill, and hormone replacement treatment, all of these are extraneous estrogens which your body is not used to and taking them increases your risk. Things related to childbirth. Not having children increases your risk.  Having children and the number of children you have is protective. If you have more children, you are more protected against breast cancer. The same way breastfeeding. In the West, there was a huge fad against breastfeeding and using artificial milk.  Breastfeeding is protective in developing countries like India and Kenya. It's a necessity. If you don't breastfeed, it's economically not possible to actually buy powdered milk. And so, it's because of necessity, you have to do it. Everyone breastfed. Each of these is a small risk, but if you add them cumulatively, they become a higher risk. And I think as more countries, the developing countries are getting more developed and getting more Westernized, all of them are following the same trend that we have in the West, and this is increasing the risk. And so, breast cancer is getting more common in developing countries, unlike it was 20 or 30 years ago. David: Wow. This just sounds both sad and scary. Dayalan: It is. Because statistics in the cities in India show that they're almost catching up with the West in terms of prevalence of breast cancer. And it's probably this whole modernization shaping the West and doing all the things that they think the West is doing, which is good. David: I was having a conversation with Rich Davis today about research. The thing that comes to mind is autism. How rare it is for for it to be seen here? Yet in Nairobi, it's much more common each year that goes by. I don't know if your wife has had this experience in anywhere else you travel. Each year that goes by, Arianna sees a few more children [with autism]. And it's I wonder if there are similar factors. I wonder what the correlations are and where it comes from? Dayalan: I think definitely you can. My wife's in the same field, she's a pediatrician also. And there's no doubt that that incidence is increasing. But also, I think we're more aware of conditions that we didn't know 20 years ago. So 20 years ago, autism was just about coming, making it very similar to screening for breast cancer, pre-invasive breast cancer like DCIS, we didn't know these conditions before, but slowly we're getting more. Research helps with that. We've got good screening programs both in the US and in the UK, fantastic breast screening programs, and so we're learning much more as we go along with each intervention that comes about like screening. So I think we're going to see more of it. And the more you see of it, the more you get to know of it and the more you get to know of it, the better it gets for patients and health benefits. David: What would have happened in Kijabe, if you did have breast cancer 20 years ago? There were probably very few chemotherapy options? I guess you could have done a mastectomy, but there was no reconstruction. I mean, was it a death sentence? Dayalan: Almost.  One of the problems we have in Kijabe and in Kenya and the whole I think is patients present much later, as a result of which the prognosis is not going to be as good as countries like yours and mine, where we have good screening programs, we pick it up early. If you take breast cancer in the UK now, two-thirds of the patients are going to be alive and well in 20 years' time. In Kijabe it's going to be a complete opposite statistic, roughly just off the top of my head, where two-thirds would be dead after 20 years. But that's because they present so late. So, yes. We've got much better in the treatment everywhere. And the problem we have is a lot of the new treatments in breast cancer, i.e., chemotherapy.  Monoclonal antibodies unfortunately are very expensive. So while in the UK where you have the NHS, where [cost] doesn't matter, in Kijabe and in Kenya, it's much more difficult to access all of these. But saying that, in the three months that I've been here, patients are being given the same chemotherapy regime that we use in the UK. Thanks to NHIF, thanks to patients' awareness, they're able to access monoclonal antibodies, not to the extent we would in the UK, but definitely, it's available and now we give our patients that treatment, and of course reconstructive surgery has moved on miles. Dayalan: In terms of the treatment options we have, it's increased phenomenally. When I started in the UK 30 years ago, we had one chemotherapy regime for breast cancer. Now we have 20, maybe 30 regimes that we can use - different chemotherapeutic agents and if one fails, you go on to the next and so on and so forth, which we didn't have 20 years ago. I think treatment for breast cancer is really looking up. And with the new mammogram machine, I think one of the big things that we should be looking at is setting up a screening program for the local people because the mammogram machine is not going to be busy with the amount of breast cancer work that we do. So really what we need to be doing is developing a screening program, going out into the community and telling them, come, let's have a look, get some mammograms. Let's pick this up early. If you have a cancer, we'll sort it out for you.

Rajat Mittal is the founder of 'Boyish' - a monthly newsletter expanding the discourse on masculinity in India.  Boyish aims to break Gender Stereotypes by talking about the impact of patriarchy on all genders of the society.  Rajat's take on Boyish is fresh and intuitive.  He is also a former co-founder of Menstrupedia.As a  Father's day special, an yearly segment of Fatherhood stories on the Podcast, I was particularly driven to get him on board and learn from him precisely in what ways Parenting and Fatherhood laid the foundation of a more intuitive take on life which inturn could have led to 'Boyish'.Parenting opens up the same gates of society with a fresh perspective and we learn in the podcast:1) About Parenting and Fatherhood as a stereotyped role.2) Rajat's personal experiences of parenting and the impact it has on his life.3) How he looks at Parenting as more of an equal or a balanced affair.Learn about Rajat: Rajat on LinkedinI am hosting various Breastfeeding preparation, new born care, New mother Care sessions for Pregnant and new Parents.
