November is National Adoption Month and so we continue the second part of our Supporting Adoption series. In this episode, we take a look at how to support adoptive parents who will welcome a new baby to their family in the days or weeks after birth. As doulas, it is important to understand that there may be different psychology at play for adoptive parents. Come join us as we take a look at the ins and outs of supporting adoptive parents!
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.

If you are one of those people who run to the clinic to see a doctor for any little ailment, or just to get endless check ups to make sure you are all right; well, you are doing it all wrong my friend! No offense, but medical interventions are usually the cause of more harm than good.Iatrogenesis is the term that defines this: it means death by doctor. This means that the treatment or examination you undergo causes harm. Hippocrates, the founder of Western medicine from 2500 years ago in Greece, had as his fundamental tenet to early healers to first, do no harm! In modern times, this prime directive has been discarded…Death by doctor is now the third leading cause of death! Now, does this make you want to visit your doctor more often? I certainly hope not: I would advise you to live as people used to live until around the 1970's in the US at least. Back in the 50's and 60's, when I grew up, we only went to the doctor if we were gravely injured or on our deathbed from a real sickness. Doctors could do things like set broken bones, or remove a ruptured appendix, or take a bullet out of your body. They were like human bodywork mechanics, similar to their car repair similar types of workers. Nothing fancy, they just tried to get the job done.Now though? Doctors and hospitals, which throughout time were places to avoid as much as possible, are now depicted as places to go to become and remain healthy. We are all urged endlessly to go in, get examined (even if we feel great), and to search for ways to be ‘improved' by medical interventions: drugs and surgeries; endless drugs and surgeries!It is never mentioned that drugs, and surgeries- all have side effects. Endless side effects, that are often far worse than the imagined ‘conditions' we are told we have! It has reached the point where, if you go in to get ‘checked out', based upon only your age, say: they will prescribe all kinds of drugs to you! (With all kinds of side effects that treat your supposed ‘conditions' that the doctor has found within you.You have to ask yourself this- do humans need drugs and surgeries to survive? If this were true, we would have died out long ago- our grandparents never had this stuff done to them, and they lived long and happy lives, generally. Childbirth was very dangerous in the old days, for both mother and child, and that has been largely solved. Mainly by early discoveries of sanitation like washing hands between autopsies and deliveries, things like that…But overall, our health since the 1970's or so has steadily worsened. The medical recommendations of low fat, high carb and sugar along with limited red meat has resulted in epidemics of heart disease and cancer, along with a skyrocketing of diabetes!This is largely because we now have a health care system that is government regulated, and financed as well via employer insurance along with Medicare and Medicaid. Because we the public perceive that now we no longer have to pay for it- why, we will go to the doctor all the time! It's free, after all. So, the health care costs go up and up and up, far beyond what a normal person could really pay- but we don't care. It's “free”! We agree to any shot or procedure, and surgery or bodily mutilation and especially to free drugs. Drugs that mess with our minds and bodies beyond what anyone could have ever imagined just a few decades ago…All of this has even become political- the Leftist Democrat party of Big Government running everything has destroyed our collective health in a huge way, and now recommend massive injecti
Like most topics we discuss, there is a lot of nuance surrounding how to support adoption. There are many choices that are available to the birthing parent. Will the adoptive parents be present for the birth? During the immediate postpartum period will they want to hold and/or feed the baby? Do they desire no contact with the baby? Come join us as we take a deep dive into the ins and outs of supporting birth parents through pregnancy, labor and birth."
Spiritual health is as important as your nutrition (ok we know it's far MORE important!!). With this episode we look at how to bring your baby into this world in God's presence. What is supernatural birth? How can it be accomplished? Guest host, Kierra Blaser, will walk you through what it looks like to birth without fear and in the Lord's light.

Stephanie is the author of 37 Seconds: Dying Revealed Heaven's Help. In 2013, when Stephanie was pregnant with her second child, she began receiving mysterious but strong premonitions that she would die during delivery. Stephanie did everything that she could to inform physicians and her family about what she knew was coming; no one believed her. When Stephanie gave birth to her son, she flatlined and died on the operating table for 37 seconds.

My guest for episode 13 is Ziggy Makant, and we are talking all things pregnancies, babies and motherhood! Ziggy is a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor with a background in psychology and life coaching. Ziggy is a mother to two boys, and prior to her first pregnancy, her fitness focus was mainly on strength & conditioning, body composition, and body transformations. After the birth of her first son in 2016, Ziggy's passion turned towards true Women's Wellness and Pre- and Post-Natal Fitness. She went on to become a Certified Pre and Post Natal Coach in 2018. Ziggy's work helps to prepare women for labour, childbirth and the postpartum period. A comparison she uses is: you wouldn't just rock up to a marathon or even a 100m sprint without any prior training, and labour and childbirth are also physical, emotional and mental events. In this episode, Ziggy shares her personal pregnancy journeys and focuses quite a bit on the early postpartum period which Ziggy states is much more demanding than childbirth. We also talk about the myth of ‘bouncing back' after you give birth, when is the right time to get active again, how do you know what's right for you. Ziggy explains how bodies are much more than what they ever were because they have brought a new life into the world! Thank you, Ziggy for sharing so candidly!

Anyone who's been through In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) will tell you about the huge costs, extensive medical intervention, and if they are lucky enough to be successful, how happy they are, but what if you go through all that and still come out the other side without a baby? Talking about the toll on your mental health as a result of IVF is much more difficult for many people than discussing the physical or financial impacts, so what do those women who have tried desperately to conceive wish they'd known beforehand? The Quicky speaks to a woman who went through years of IVF and a medical specialist to find out what prospective parents should know before they embark on this journey, and how to care for their mental wellbeing before, during and after, no matter what the outcome.

Today's episode has our first content warning, since I am going to talk about potentially upsetting subjects. Namely, miscarriage, abortion and infanticide. If this sounds too disturbing you can skip this episode; if not I encourage you to listen since these are essential topics to understanding pre-modern society and are often sorely under-studied.

A question we see often in doula forums is about sliding scales. How do you determine the low & high end of the scale? How do you make sure that those who can afford to pay, are honest about their ability to pay? Many doulas underestimate the amount of time involved in setting up a sliding scale. Then there is the maintenance & moving prospective clients through the application & verification process. There is much more than this to consider. Come join us as we discuss the ins & outs of sliding scales.
In Asking for a Pregnant Friend: 101 Answers to Questions Women Are Too Embarrassed to Ask about Pregnancy, Childbirth, and Motherhood, beloved childbirth educator, doula, and author Bailey Gaddis offers real, safe, savvy, and nonjudgmental answers to the most personal questions about pregnancy, childbirth, and early motherhood. And, for added support, Bailey enlisted a team of experts for up-to-the-moment scientific and professional information for many of the questions. What is that smell? Is the fetus okay when I have sex? What should I do if I'm sad about my baby's gender? Why do I feel aroused when breastfeeding? Is it normal to be jealous of my baby? Unfortunately, women who summon the courage to ask these questions online are frequently met with unwelcome judgments or inaccurate information. "There are thousands of us slipping away from prying eyes to scan chat rooms and forums, flip through books, and make our fingers numb with Google searches as we look for answers to the same things you came to this book wondering about," writes Bailey. "I don't want you to feel like tracking down answers is a full-time job. I want you to have all the answers in one place, from a friendly, accurate source. I also want those answers to come from a friend who would never judge or make you feel like a weirdo for asking that 'TMI' question. So…can we be friends?"

Today's special episode examines the often undiscussed topic of birth trauma. Our guest Teela Tomassetti, a therapist for over 15 years specializing in trauma, had decided to pursue a PhD in birth trauma in dedication to a close friend's traumatic birth experience. She did not know at the time that she would be facing a birth trauma of her own. Teela generously shares her personal story with us, discusses with Dr. Sarah how birth trauma can be defined, and how you might reach out for help if you feel you may have experienced it.

Further intel on a mistruth being spread by social media - that COVID-19 vaccines can cause both male and female infertility. With males, the COVID disease can cause infertility, the COVID vaccines do not. The false claim about female infertility was that the vaccine would make the woman's own immune system attack her natural proteins. No studies have proved this claim.

As birth workers, one of the most common concerns families face is the health and well-being of their babies. Understanding SIDS is a topic of great importance to doulas & parents alike. SIDS is the sudden death of an infant under one year of age. The death is unexpected and has no known cause. Come join us as we discuss the difference between SIDS and SUIDS and learn how to discuss how to reduce risk with families via the Safe to Sleep practices.
This is a bonus episode of What Was That Like. If this were a regular episode, you'd be hearing someone telling a story of how they survived a mass shooting, or when they got attacked by a grizzly bear, or that time they won $100,000 on Wheel of Fortune. We have guests on with all kinds of crazy stories, and they tell exactly what happened, first hand. But this episode is different. A while back, I asked my listeners to send in their stories about a specific topic: childbirth. What happened, what went right, and in some cases, what went wrong. This is real life, and not every story has a happy ending. I really enjoyed hearing these stories, and to those who sent one in, thank you. And if you have a story about something unusual that's happened to you, not necessarily related to childbirth, but anything unusual or interesting, hang around and at the end I'll tell you how we might be able to use that here on the podcast in a future episode. This episode is sponsored by A Life's Story podcast – life stories of incredible people. Listen to it on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts. Here is Sylvia's story about her experience with Postpartum Psychosis: My story starts after the birth of our first child. I developed a rare condition called Postpartum Psychosis which distorted my mind. This illness affects one to two women out of every 1000 births. After a very long day and night I gave birth to a healthy very big baby. Soon (maybe 5 days later), the only thing on my mind was finding the Wizard of Oz. I convinced myself that I was Dorothy. My new-born son was Toto. Every day, my mission was to cast all the colourful characters that lived in Kansas and Oz. The cast changed daily, determined by my visitor's personality and the colours they were wearing. My overdriven mind was constantly re-arranging characters and scenes which led to many sleepless nights. I'd finally cast most of my main players like the Scarecrow, the Brave Lion, the Tin Man. I was going to rest now. But I still had to go to Oz. I also needed to find the red sparkly slippers to get Toto and me home. Finally, I arrived home with my new-born son. While my husband and seven-day old baby slept, I tried to rest and switch my brain off but every sound from a microwave oven, cell phone, creaky floors, barking dogs were all cues that would lead me closer to the Wizard of Oz and my red slippers. My husband realised something wasn't quite right with me. The Community Nurse did a home visit to check on our new baby. The nurse confirmed that something wasn't right with me. I was too elevated. It was suggested I should see my doctor to arrange a visit to a psychiatrist. Soon after, I found myself sitting in this psychiatrist bleak, ugly stale office. To diagnose me, he quizzed on mathematics. The psychiatrist prescribed medication for 5 days to help my mind switch off and whatever I was experiencing would disappear. These drugs REALLY knocked me out. I was now officially a mum zombie. After 5 days, I truly thought I was cured!! To celebrate, my husband was going to drive me to see my friend, but in reality we were driving to the public hospital. I ran away when we arrived. My husband chased me down and dragged me into the emergency department which made the Triage Nurse get the security guards. I remember my husband screaming at the Triage Nurse: “She's not a drug addict, she's just had a baby - someone help her!” I tried to convince nurses and doctors, I was having a great time searching for the Wizard of Oz and I didn't need to be locked up. In reality, I needed to be heavily medicated again and it was then admitted to the psych ward of this hospital, without Toto. I don't remember how many nights I stayed at this hospital, but I knew that I missed my son and husband. I just wanted to go home. I wanted to start our lives together. I convinced myself, I could make my way home, if I do things properly in the right order, like floss my teeth, exercise daily, make the bed, talk, and save people and eat well. This hospital didn't offer healthy choices and it had a semi outdoor exercise, caged area, you could barely see the outside world – it was so prison like. I was trapped and felt like I never going to go home. My brilliant, big sister found a baby and mother hospital which was located about 1.5 hours away from where we lived. It housed 8 mums and their babies. It was the only one in our state. I was admitted and this is where I was first diagnosed Post Natal Psychosis. I'd convinced myself that it would be okay because I was closer to Oz and I could take Toto with me. I wanted to party when I first arrived at this new hospital. New mums were not as euphoric, and I couldn't relate to them at all. I met mothers who were struggling after childbirth. One was on suicide watch, one played a jingle over and over in her head, one had to have ECT and one who couldn't bring herself to hold her baby. I befriended them all because I could to fix them all. I spoke my mind, became irreverent and spent money without a care. I bought them all a pizza, each! To fix them! Doctors experimented with various medications to dampen my elevated state. Some drugs did nothing, some drugs made me feel so sick and some were so strong that I couldn't sit up or speak. Doctors settled on a medication that heavily sedated me. I slept a lot while the nurses looked after my baby. I found a wonderful Psychiatrist. She wore my colours and enjoyed listening to my plan to visit the Wizard of Oz. I decided she could be cast as Good Witch Glenda. She seemed to appreciate this. She was quirky. I spent a lot of time talking about losing my dad, not grieving properly, not saying a proper good-bye. She really understood me. I was in good hands. I was beginning to accept holistic therapy. I practised mindfulness, which I loathed then (I love now) as well as healthy eating, cognitive therapy, resting, art therapy, proper medication and being kind to each other and ourselves. This is was the way forward for me. My new mission now was to run for Government to change women's health. I wrote hundreds of letters to government and prepared many speeches for I when I going to be elected. I was going to win for sure! My son and I stayed on at the hospital for over four months. I had put my amazing husband, our families, and our friends through a type of hell that I was totally oblivious to. We were given a 50% chance of Postpartum Psychosis reoccurring with another pregnancy. We took the gamble and decided to try again for a baby. My beautiful baby was born six weeks early, after a long, horrific pregnancy. My baby was very tiny and had to learn how to thrive, breathe and eat at the same time and was placed in ICU. I felt helpless and useless, so I was going to predict all the winning lottery tickets, while the nurses helped my baby thrive. I played lotto over and over; not because I wanted to be rich, but because I wanted all my friends and family to be debt free. Five days later, I was getting sick again. My husband knew. I was in denial as I thought I just needed sunshine and a healthy baby to take home. We fought about it a lot. I lost the fight. When my baby was well and thriving, our bags were packed as the private hospital and my psychiatrist were ready. My hospital bed was pre booked. Credit cards were put away. I was back at the mum and baby hospital with my beautiful daughter. My wonderful family looked after my son. My job was to rest. I was angry a lot. How could I have gotten sick again when everything was in place? I wanted to be home with my beautiful husband and my pigeon pair children. It took a long time to accept my diagnosis. I slowly recovered again. We survived again. Thanks to my wonderful supportive husband and amazing family including my friends that are just like family. My big sister was incredible, and my little sister who kept me going when I was “locked up”, by phoning every day, telling me how much she missed and loved me. My beautiful, healthy daughter and I were in hospital for over 3 months. It took almost 2 years, from the birth of my daughter, to become medication free and I've made a full recovery. I enjoy healthy eating, plenty of exercise and being kind to myself. At times I get emotional when I think about what we went through. Sometimes we can laugh, about trying to save people with pizza, wanting to run for government, lotto winning tickets, outlandish and useless on-line shopping purchases, and how many red slippers I own. I have enormous appreciation for proper post-natal care and The Wizard of Oz. That's our story. Yours Truly, Dorothy/Sylvia from Oz/Australia.
Stephen A. Smith had some harsh words for Kyrie Irving and Pete Rose had even harsher words for a member of the Yankees. Plus, Knobservations, Did It Happen In Florida & someone on the show thinks they'd be "excellent" in child birth.
This week I had the pleasure of having incredible home birth midwife, Angie, LM, CPM, join me on the podcast. Angie, from the Long Beach, CA area, gives us some insight into what the process of taking care of a mother during pregnancy and birth is like as a home birth midwife. We also went a little deeper into birthing during a pandemic as well as the importance of informed consent. Informed consent is so important to her and I know when you take a listen you will understand why and feel empowered to stand up for yourself.It's true that when you birth at home you will be birthing unmedicated but it doesn't mean your midwife won't come prepared with life-saving medications, tools, knowledge, and skills to keep you and your baby safe. With so many misconceptions when it comes to home births, including the legitimacy and safety of the practice, Angie gives us the facts that can help tackle those misconceptions and may even have you looking up a local home birth midwife near you for care.

We have several pretty good COVID-19 vaccines. They have enormously reduced the risks against getting sick, or dying from COVID. So why are people saying “no” to COVID vaccines? It seems the main reason for avoiding the very protective vaccines is wave after wave of misinformation and dis-information in social media. Let's make some aspects easier to understand.

Childbirth seems to be getting more and more medicalized, with C-sections and other interventions out the wazoo. But childbirth isn't a disease!
