What works for one person may not work for you and what works for you may not work for someone else. The goal is for you to feel as confident and prepared for this time of pregnancy and that you've had conversations withs with your provider leading up to your birth to fully understand how they support letting labor begin on its own and this includes going beyond your due date and learning about medical and non-medical reasons a provider may recommend an induction.  In this episode, we will discuss:What is the “estimated due date” and how to know what is normal, safe, and healthy for the length of pregnancy. Rates of inductions and birth surrounding major holidaysAvoiding the unnecessary inductionInformed and shared decision makingWhy it's important to let labor begin on its ownNavigating the final weeks of pregnancyEpisodes mentioned in this podcast:Ep 26: Due Dates and HolidaysEp 40: Lamaze 6 Healthy Birth PracticesEp 54: Navigating Final Weeks of PregnancyEp 61: Finding Your Breath: 5 Breathing Exercises for Pregnancy and PostpartumEp 65: Gentle InductionEp 71: All About Prenatal Massage Therapy with Tara ThompsonEp 77: Informed and Shared Decision MakingOther Resources:Spinning Babies - Daily ActivitiesThe Guide by Ann Marie GilliganIf you like what you are hearing and you don't want to miss our newest episodes, be sure and tap subscribe.

In the doula community, there is often a line of demarcation between "new" doulas and "seasoned doulas." Yet no clear line exists that determines when one is no longer considered new. So the question is, when does one become an experienced doula, and how is that experience defined? Could it be that a well-rounded doula can enter this work right from the start? The simple fact is that someone just beginning their doula journey can support a client just as effectively as a doula with years of experience. Doulas often focus on the number of births to define new vs. experienced. Yet, for expectant families, connection with the doula often tips the scales in favor of one doula vs another. In this episode, we challenge the notion of new vs. seasoned doulas. Join us as we discuss why the concept of a "well-rounded doula" is far more important than the number of years of experience or clients served.

One of the most common questions amongst labor doulas surrounds due dates. Should I take two clients due on the same date? What is the optimal spacing between clients? Is it better to take clients due further apart or closer together? The truth is, there's no straightforward answer to these common questions. Experience tells us that EDD is just a number on a calendar and that clients may deliver weeks before or after their given date.  One thing is for certain, working with a backup doula is essential.  Join us as we discuss the many factors to consider surrounding the due date dilemma.

Pregnancy and childbirth are profound events in the life of a couple. The physical, psychological and hormonal changes that occur to women during pregnancy and in the postpartum period can impact both partners and affect emotional and sexual intimacy.  Couples must learn to adjust to a changed family system and a new identity as parents. Observant Jewish couples are additionally affected by laws that restrict touch during childbirth and in the postpartum period. In this episode, Rabbi Scott Kahn and Talli Rosenbaum discuss how pregnancy and childbirth as well as restrictions on physical touch, can affect relational intimacy and sexuality.

Gill in her own words:   “My name is Gill Castle, and in October 2011 I gave birth to my son, Sam, at 34 weeks gestation, a traumatic birth which resulted in a permanent stoma (colostomy). Over the following years I have set out to prove to myself, and others, what is achievable with a stoma, as initially I was presented with a lot of “no, you can't do that with one of those”. I also wanted to overcome the trauma of the birth, which resulted in the loss of my job as a police officer, and which forced me to create a new identity for myself.    On my website I signpost people to all the amazing organisations out there who can help, like the Birth Trauma Association, the Masic Foundation, Purple Wings, Samaritans, Colostomy UK to name but a few.    Am I superwoman? Absolutely 110% not. Lots of women suffer like me and come out the other side ok. But when you are experiencing such a load of shite there is often no one who has made it out onto the other side who is shouting about the good life that is possible.    I want to be that person. I want to show that girl who was living through hell that it can turn out ok in the end.  How will I do it? Simply by my actions. I will gladly, happily, discuss people's trauma with them, and discuss my own, in PM, I understand that talking and discussing helps. But I want to just SHOW you by everything I do, every smile I have, that you can be happy, you can do things. The same for people with stomas.   But, this is also true for ANYONE. I want to sweep people along with my enthusiasm for life and encourage you all to just get OUT THERE and TRY something. Anything! We all have our own desires and goals. So many people say to me that they would “love” to do something “but I'm too scared” .    WAIT UP! Have you actually tried it? How do you know then?    I understand trauma, I understand pain, I understand fear. But right now I understand HOPE and JOY.    That's it really, just me, doing my thing, being happy, being active and encouraging people to do to the same.”    During this episode there is a lot of poo chat and very open and honest conversations about child birth injury and recovering from trauma.  If you are not sure if you should listen to this episode- for what ever reason - I would encourage you to ask a friend to listen to it first to make sure it is suitable for where you are in your journey.

Millennials & die-hard Queens natives Suzanne & Edgar share the many smart things they did to prepare for the journey into parenthood and in hopes of having a healthy pregnancy & unmedicated birth: pre-conception couples therapy, going back on mental health meds in the journey to conceive, physical prep with exercise including yoga, nutritional support, chiropractic, acupuncture, meditation & mindfulness practices, hiring a doula, carefully choosing care provider, taking birth class, attending lactation support meetings during pregnancy, books, and more. Their birth story starts with being told they need an immediate induction due to low fluid. They decide to buy a bit of time by going to Suzanne's “lucky diner” for a good meal beforehand, and her labor starts spontaneously. Suzanne experiences a faster-than-average 1st stage of labor but longer-than-average pushing stage. When the doctor says a cesarean might be needed after 3 hours of pushing, Suzanne is determined to give birth vaginally. Going into parenthood, she experiences some breastfeeding challenges that hit her mental health and shares about the hard decisions she had to make along the way. This story powerfully demonstrates how strong self-advocacy is often a gamechanger in many hospitals to have a physiologic birth and avoid unnecessary interventions. It also highlights how important supporting our mental health is in the journey into parenthood - directly from a parent who works in the mental health field.

Becoming a doula means that you are starting a business. Many doulas overlook this first step. Or this information is not a big part of their doula training.  Understanding the ins and outs of starting a business is important. Creating a legal business structure, setting up business accounts for banking, taking payments, and offering services are critical first steps. These steps not only protect your business but can protect your personal assets as well.  Running a business means that you need to manage many aspects of your doula business daily. Working with clients is a part of what you will do as you work in your business. But it won't be the largest part of what you do, at least in the beginning. Doulas who want to make a living at this work will need to tend to their business just as diligently as they tend to their clients. Join us as we discuss the basics of running a doula business.

Many new mothers do not plan to give birth via cesarean birth, yet around 1-in-3 women in the United States give birth this way. When medically necessary, c-sections can save lives. However, when conducted as an elective procedure or when performed unnecessarily, the risks outweigh the benefits. In this episode, Doula Rachael and Dr. Shannon discusses evidence-based practices that can help increase the rate of vaginal births and decrease the rate of unnecessary cesarean birth.

Connections between birthing and menopause Stop people-pleasing and discover authentic self-care Welcome to Episode 4 of Season 6, our Rise of the Feminine season. This collection of podcasts talks about how the feminine rises within us during pregnancy, birth and beyond. I'm so grateful you are listening to these conversations about living in a way that fully honours our feminine journey and strength. I absolutely loved talking to this remarkable woman, Alison Brahe Daddo. Her honesty and generosity are so refreshing. Alison is a screenwriter, podcaster, teacher and former model who appeared regularly on the cover of Cosmopolitan, Dolly and Cleo magazines in the ‘90s. She grew up alongside a generation of Australians. Now, she's all grown up and has gone through menopause, an experience she shares in her new fantastic book Queen Menopause Finding your majesty in the mayhem. Menopause changed Ali's perspective on life, relationships and body image. It made her realise the implications of being silent, speaking up, consent, boundaries, and the importance of feeling, of being and of anger. She reveals how all the shifting within gave birth to a new sense of self and her life. In this episode, we chat about the following: Menstruation, pregnancy, birth, sex and menopause. How the lessons, opportunities and gifts can be so similar. Wherever you are along the journey of womanhood, it is time to practice deep self-awareness and authentic self-care. Pull together a team of practitioners that can help you the way you want. Invest in your health of body, mind and soul. Remember, we can't stay busy forever! As we continue with our Rise of the Feminine season, stay tuned at the end when Alison shares her vision of what the world would look like with restored feminine power and wisdom. I highly recommend Alison's book so that you can become the Queen of your life, whatever stage you are in. I hope you enjoy it.
