In this episode, Kimberly and Kathleen discuss connections between birth, trauma, and breastfeeding. As a researcher and writer on these subjects, Kathleen describes much of her research that centers around birth-related trauma, how trauma affects breastfeeding, as well as secondary trauma experienced by providers and birth workers. They discuss the importance of oxytocin as an antidote to stress, particularly during the early postpartum period. In addition, they discuss how many mothers, care providers, and birth workers experience secondary trauma within labor and delivery units and the importance of more substantial support and postpartum care for mothers.

Dr. EA Quinn and I had a wide ranging discussion on breastmilk from an evolutionary perspective for podcast episode #11. Dr. Quinn is a biological anthropologist with a specialty in human biology. Her research is broadly focused on understanding the ways in which human milk is an essential part of human biological variation and how such variation has been selected for by different ecological pressures. Her primary research project at present is Infancy @Altitude, a longitudinal birth cohort study of ethnic Tibetan mothers and infants living in the Nubri Valley, Nepal. She is investigating the ways in which ecological pressures – in this case the ecological pressures of hypoxia, chronic cold stress, shorter growing seasons, UV radiation, and infectious diseases – create selective pressures on human milk and how this translates into adaptive patterns of child growth. One of the major findings of this research was elevated milk fat in the high altitude sample compared to other previously studied human populations and lower levels of metabolic hormones than predicted based on maternal body composition. Breastmilk is a magical human derived food and medicine all wrapped up into one. The magnificence of human milk is on full display during this hour long podcast. I hope that you enjoy my conversation with Dr. EA Quinn, Dr. M

Esme vividly describes her first birth experience as a descent into the underworld. Ultimately, that birth process was interrupted by an overly cautious midwife, which had long term physical and emotional ramifications for both her and her son. After a lot of healing work, her second child was born, in an experience she describes as blissful. Esme's entire story is nothing short of pure magic! I loved every second of our conversation.

Colorado and Washington became the first states to fully legalize the recreational use of marijuana back in 2012. Since then, many states have followed. Although marijuana is usually a natural and non-harmful drug, researchers do not know the effect THC can have on a fetus during the prenatal period or on infants during breastfeeding. As a start, researchers set out to understand how much THC is excreted in breast milk and for how long. Today, I am happy to be speaking with my colleagues, Dr. Maya Bunik & Dr. Erica Wymore. Dr. Bunik is the Medical Director for our Child Health Clinic and is a Professor for General Pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. Dr. Wymore is a Neonatologist here at Children's. She is also an Assistant Professor for Pediatrics Neonatology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.

When you mention adoption, for most individuals it brings to mind a solution. A solution for infants and children who are in need of homes and loving families. Yet what rarely comes to mind is the psychological and physical impact of adoption on adoptees. Adoption, specifically the separation of an infant or child from their biological mother creates what is called the primal wound. Come join us as we take a deep dive into the trauma of adoption on adoptees as our guest Isaac, and Angela share their stories.

When we look at research, especially in the realm of development, we tend to focus on things like resilience, struggles families face, and so on. This is particularly true when we look at the research on parenting in families of colour - the focus starts with what's wrong and how we can fix it. It was under this guise that I approached Dr. Erika Bocknek as she had done research on resilience in Black Fathers that was - I thought - interesting. What we talked about ended up being quite different with a much larger focus on the inherent racism that exists in the research questions and assumptions themselves, especially when we look at Black Fathers. I hope that you will all find this as eye-opening and important a conversation as I did because we need to recognize these problems before we can start to fix them.

In today's episode we have Lindsay Castiglione sharing her incredible perspective & knowledge with us about breastfeeding multiples. Although there has been great growth toward society supporting & normalizing breastfeeding, there is still a huge need for resources in the multiples community.There are a few areas of early lactation that are vital to success with multiples, but these areas are not often covered in-depth during traditional prenatal breastfeeding classes. We discuss how so many multiples born preterm or premature, so we need a solid focus on bringing in a milk supply even if our babies are not strong, effective nursers. Often this means completely bringing in a supply with a hospital grade pump, or if babies are older, letting them practice but immediately following with a short pumping session to stimulate supply.We talk about preterm babies (with 50% of twins born between 35-37w, triplets and even earlier) and the common issues like low blood sugar, jaundice, and constant fatigue common with this early birth. When not talked about enough prenatally, and when experienced immediately postpartum, these situations can feel like an enormous crisis. Instead, we can understand the causes, and be armed with a plan of how to manage without compromising supply in those early days. Lindsay also shares her fascinating story as a mom of 2 sets of twins. Through a lot of trials and tribulations she was able to breastfeed both sets! Lindsay now runs the Full Hearts Collaborative, teaching classes to parents expecting multiples, combined with her private practice specializing in NICU, Exclusive Pumping, and Multiples lactation care.LINKS:Mothering Multiples bookFacebook group for the Mothering Multiples book: https://www.facebook.com/groups/motheringmultiplestooFull Hearts Collaborative website: https://www.fullheartscollaborative.comFull Hearts Collaborative on InstagramFull Hearts Collaborative on Facebook
We sat down with RN & IBCLC Therese Dansby to merge perhaps one of the most important combinations for motherhood: metabolic health + breastfeeding. In a culture where there seems to be two sides yelling "breast is best!" or "fed is best!," we're here to say that perhaps "nourished & supported breastfeeding is best." The hard truth is that breastmilk nutrition does not stay fixed. The nutrition of your breastmilk is absolutely determined by your own nourishment as a mom. So that does that mean we're saying to outsource to formula to ensure that baby is getting what baby needs? Absolutely not! We're saying that moms. need. NOURISHMENT. And moms need support to make that happen- whether that's through help, lifestyle shifts, financial readjustments, or simply the environment in which the mom feels like the power is back into her hands. Join us as we sit down & discuss the following: Therese's metabolic health journey Mercer's theory of maternal attainment Why it's important to put power back into the mom's hands How breastmilk composition changes over time Is "fed" really best? What is "costs" a mom metabolically to breastfeed Why it's important to support your metabolism prior to pregnancy + postpartum A whole-body approach to baby's "food intolerances" Postpartum mood disorders: a "chemical imbalance" or a lack of nourishment/support? Society's obsession with infant sleep Postpartum diet culture Calorie needs for breastfeeding moms Postpartum hormonal changes Return of cycle while breastfeeding Forms of natural birth control while breastfeeding Examining the advice of supplementing babies with vitamin D & iron Addressing oral ties systemically *Not medical advice.

Breastfeeding women have been having a difficult time knowing whether to get the Covid vaccine, given that the vaccine is new and neither the CDC nor vaccine manufacturers have studied whether vaccine ingredients make their way into breast milk. Meanwhile, pregnant and breastfeeding women have been told to get the vaccine despite this lack of research. It has been the historical norm for vaccines not to be tested on pregnant or nursing mothers, making informed consent difficult, if not impossible. We provide no recommendation for or against the Covid vaccine for breastfeeding women, as we believe the decision is only yours to make. Whenever there is unknown/potential risk on either side of a decision, freedom must accompany choice.We do, however, want to empower you to conduct your own research. We begin by demonstrating how easily misleading and biased information makes its way to major news outlets, and how it's carefully designed to look like statistically-valid research when it is actually rhetoric. If you've listened to our podcast before, you know "medical rhetoric" in pregnancy and childbirth is a recurring theme in obstetrics and maternity care, and one of our missions is to help our listeners develop an ear for recognizing rhetoric. In the first half of this episode, we cite specific headlines (e.g. New York Times Parenting; Apple News, Reuters) and point out that the underlying "research" does not adequately support the headline, nor are the sources necessarily independent/objective. In our own quest to find vaccine information for breastfeeding mothers, we invited Dr. Kaytlin Krutch from Texas Tech University's Infant Risk Center, which, for years, has studied the effects of drugs and medications on breast milk. In September 2021, the Infant Risk research team published the first known study of the Covid vaccine and its possible impact on breastfed newborns. They did this research because curious/concerned breastfeeding moms flooded their call centers all year with questions about the vaccine. Dr. Krutch shares the results of the Infant Risk team's study while also pointing out the gaps in their own research and what work still needs to be done. Our hope is that, whatever parents choose, they will learn from this episode (a) how to recognize research versus rhetoric in all areas of healthcare; (b) how to interpret whether research is valid and significant, and (c) what is meant by certain scientific terms such as "confidence interval"; "control group"; etc. This is an important topic affecting millions of breastfeeding women today who simply seek evidence of risk and safety. We hope it empowers you in your healthcare decisions both now and in the future. Please share this episode with others who might benefit from the discussion.

In this episode we have got Dr Sara Wickham back! Sara's newest book titled In Your Own Time: How western medicine controls the start of labour and why this needs to stop, is a masterclass in what the evidence really says about induction of labour and a fascinating insight into how birth has come to be controlled by Western medicine. Staggeringly, over a third of all pregnant women have their labour medically induced, and this is accompanied by a tsunami of avoidable medical interventions. Worldwide, this trend is growing at an alarming rate. This is despite both a lack of evidence demonstrating its benefits and a wealth of evidence indicating the significant short- and long-term negative impacts of induction on the health and wellbeing of mothers and their babies.Sara discusses with us how her timely book, in light of the newly released NICE Inducing labour guidelines, demystifies the evidence and highlights the significant discrepancies between guidelines and what we really know about the benefits of supporting women to birth spontaneously.Sara is a midwife, speaker, bestselling author and researcher who works independently. Sara's career has been varied and includes more than twenty years of experience as a midwife, lecturer and researcher. She is the author/editor of seventeen books and is the Director of the Birth Information Project. She divides her working time between speaking, writing, facilitating online courses, creating resources and undertaking a wide variety of consultancy projects and advisory activities.LINKS:Dr Sara Wickham website: www.sarawickham.comThe book's webpage www.sarawickham.com/time Instagram @drsarawickham Facebook fb/saramidwifeThe Cauldrons' donation page - https://www.patreon.com/themidwivescauldronDr Rachel Reed website: https://www.rachelreed.website/Instagram @midwifethinkingSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/themidwivescauldron)

Susan is the 31 year old mother. Her son John is 2 1/2 and they continue to enjoy a breastfeeding relationship. This does not seem unusual for Susan as she knows she was breastfed until she was 3 years old. Susan planned a home birth with her husband Robert, midwife and midwives assistant and doula at the birth. Her son weighed 9 lbs. 4 oz. Breastfeeding for her was something that was not an option and was just something she knew she would do. Susan shares how she navigated the very early days of newborn breastfeeding. She was initially concerned when her baby did not seem to be hungry the first 4 hours. She did realize though that he needed to rest, he pooped and then all of a sudden he was interested in eating and they never looked back. It took her a few weeks until she felt like she found her groove with breastfeeding. It took her a little time to find what positions were most comfortable with John and what felt right for her. While Susan was never approached by a store owner who asked her to not breastfeed in their store, she shares with us her prepared speech if that should ever happen! She also feels that it is very important to find a pediatrician that fully supports breastfeeding.

I am joined by one of my very best gal pals, Ashli Brehm. Ashli has brought joy, laughter, and hope to many by writing and speaking about her experience of undergoing cancer treatment as the mother of 3 young boys.

As a mom, do you feel comfortable when you breastfeed in public places, especially in the workplace? Have you received a negative comment or side glance or been asked to stop? Amy VanHaren is on the Moms With a Purpose podcast this week. She's the CEO and founder of pumpspotting, a digital platform and employer benefit software helping parents feed both family and career. Amy faced deep isolation while working and breastfeeding and the experience led her on a quest to solve the pain points of feeding—at work and everywhere else in the world—and to unite nursing, pumping women. She has 24 years experience in marketing and digital community building at companies like Patagonia and Amy's Kitchen and Vistaprint. Since launching Pumpspotting Amy has supported over 40,000 postpartum parents to date, pitched on a moving escalator on Apple's reality TV show, spent five months traveling cross-country to meet thousands of mothers in her Breast Express RV, and been named one of Forbes Next 1000 entrepreneurs. Though it feels scary, exhausting and uncomfortable, with the help of Amy's Pumpspotting, a lot of moms were able to feel the support they needed. Amy also discusses how having an open conversation with your employer can help you in getting the right mindset to advocate your family needs upon returning to work. Let's dive in! We also chatted about: 01:23 How Amy started Pumpspotting 09:59 How moms or dads advocate their family needs after returning to work 14:32 What would be her tip/s to a mom in a male-dominated workplace 16:51 How Amy helps company or employers to support breastfeeding moms 20:40 How Breastfeeding education helps and supports business 22:07 What drives her forward 24:15 What was her experiences traveling cross-country with their Express RV 28:28 How does she balance her time between family and business 32:58 Her thoughts to give to moms 33:56 What's her favorite part of being a Mom 34:18 What's her non-negotiable practice every day 35:52 Who are her favorite podcasters and authors At the end of the day, Amy always makes sure to balance her time between her family and work.

You need to tell yourself you can do this whatever it looks like, you need to know you're not alone.” “There is so much willingness among us parents who have been through to pay it forward. I wanna open doors, I wanna ” “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” - Fred Rogers “Healthy moms and babies mean healthy business so win-win for everyone.” “The power of that nurturing and how could we replicate that again and again on the app within the workplace support and carry that with us when we think about the work we do and how every parent can live lighter after a touch point with us.” “You are amazing, no matter where you are in the journey, what you are doing is remarkable.

We're the moms that support instead of judge and know there are many ways to do something right. I'd love to connect on Instagram @heyshaylaBreastfeeding is supposed to be this natural experience that we somehow are supposed to magically know how to do. AND even if we have a relatively easy experience there are SO many hurdles that we can face and have to overcome. Natalie Johnson (@standing_so_tall) an IBCLC shares with us typical problems like cracked nipples, engorgement, mastitis, tongue tie, blebs, biting (and more) and how to overcome them!Natalie has been passionate about breastfeeding since college, has breastfed her 4 babies, and supports moms with her community carriage house in person and virtual meetings!

In today's episode, I chat to Sammi and her partner, Lachlan, about their first pregnancy and birth. They immersed themselves in preparation and even though they planned for an intervention-free birth, they attended both hospital and hypnobirthing classes as well as a breastfeeding course so they were across all possible birth and postpartum experiences. Sammi laboured for a long time at home and Lachlan talks about the support he offered, his nerves when labour intensified and the practical things he did once they got to the hospital. Get your partner to tune into this episode as it's really lovely and informative to hear about labour from both perspectives.

When you're trans and pregnant, some of the vocabulary of pregnancy, birth and parenting might not fit you. In face, some of it might not even work for people of ANY gender. Trans parents Freddy McConnell and CJ talk about gender-additive language, inclusive for women and other genders, and about how in English law, the word 'mother' becomes semantically very complicated indeed.
