Welcome to The Academic Life! In this episode you'll hear about: Bethany Johnson's simultaneous journey through graduate school and motherhood, her struggles with infertility, the history of birth-care access, why Black women have worse maternal health outcomes, the consequences for pregnant people in a pregnancy-surveillance culture, and a discussion of the book You're Doing it Wrong: Mothering, Media, and Medical Expertise. Today's book is: You're Doing it Wrong: Mothering, Media, and Medical Expertise by Bethany L. Johnson and Margaret M. Quinlan, which explores how new mothers face a barrage of confounding decisions. Whatever they “choose,” experts ranging from health practitioners to social media influencers tell them they're making mistakes. Johnson and Quinlan draw from their own experiences, the history of mothering advice from the newspapers, magazines, doctors' records and personal papers of the nineteenth-century to today's websites and Instagram feeds. Johnson and Quinlan find surprising parallels between today's mothering experts and their Victorian counterparts, and explore how social media pressures pregnant people, even as it offers social support. Our guest is: Bethany L. Johnson, a doctoral student in the history of science, technology and the environment at the University of South Carolina and an associate member to the graduate faculty and research affiliate faculty in the Department of Communication Studies at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Her research examines medical technologies and public health policies as tools of institutional power from the 19th-century to the present, with a focus on epidemics and reproductive health. She has published in journals such as Health Communication, Women & Language, Departures in Critical Qualitative Research, Journal of Holistic Nursing, and Women's Reproductive Health. She is the co-author of You're Doing it Wrong! Mothering, Media and Medical Expertise. Our host is: Dr. Christina Gessler, co-producer of the Academic Life. Listeners to this episode might also be interested in: --Dr. Quinlan and Bethany Johnson's Medical “Humanities Mamas” articles for Psychology Today  --Dr Quinlan and Bethany Johnson's website, including their greeting cards for people experiencing infertility  --This website by a pregnant graduate student --The Unequal Impact of Parenthood in Academia --Fixing Parental Leave: The Six Month Solution, by Gayle Kaufman --“Families Devalued: Black Academic Women and the Neoliberal Era's Family Tariff,” in Lean Semesters, by Sekile M.

On this episode I had the honor to speak with director, writer, and amazing mother Tahyna MacManus about the grief of having a miscarriage. After experiencing several miscarriages, Tahyna began documenting her own journey of grieving the loss of losing her baby. Her own journey soon turned into a documentary titled Misunderstandings of Miscarriages (MuM) which documented the women (and couples) grieving their loss and discussing the many myths surrounding having a miscarriage. Her transparency & journey of having multiple miscarriages and grieving is one that is inspiring and will definitely help anyone who has experienced such a loss. In this episode we discuss: + The grief that comes with having a miscarriage  + The "12 week" rule when it comes to having a miscarriage + Ways to support someone grieving a miscarriage  + Ways to communicate with a partner grieving the miscarriage + Ways to honor your lost baby   Tahyna's Information: Website: https://www.mumdocumentary.com/ Instagram: @tahynamacmanus   Connect with Loryn Denise: * Website: www.thistooshallsuckpodcast.com * Email: Hello@Thistooshallsuckpodcast.com * Instagram: @ThisTooShallSuckPodcast * Facebook: @ThisTooShallSuckPodcast *Get Your Free Purposeful Podcast Playbook* Purposefulpodcastplaybook.com

Part of the journey to falling apart through infertility for me began with a baby shower…. And it was when we'd only just started trying to conceive.I'll never forget arriving at a baby shower (and sorry if you've heard this story before) and seeing that I was one of only three women who either weren't pregnant or had kids already.One was Veronica, an acquaintance who declared that her life was too full for kids - between their travels and their foodie life and her role as a teacher, she just didn't have the capacity for kids. Then there was my other dear friend who I knew wanted kids but just hadn't met the right person yet. And me… who was trying to conceive but nobody knew about it. And at that time we just didn't know that the journey would be so much longer. But that was the start of feeling like an outsider and the start of feeling like I was no longer having much to contribute or receive from the conversation.Just over a year later, I walked into the supermarket and felt completely ambushed when I saw her…. And then saw her turn around only to discover she was about 8 months pregnant.I felt like the last person standing and that out of everyone at that baby shower, I was the last man standing.I attended many more baby showers and first birthday parties (including organising at least one baby shower) while I was working through infertility, and together with my life coach hat - here are 9 things you can do to support yourself at baby showers through infertility.(And I want to let you know that my advice might be a little different from others in this space!).You'll also learn things that can help you before the baby shower and during the baby shower and I'll also discuss some things you might want to permit yourself for.

Our Daily Bread Podcast | Our Daily Bread

When Hugh and DeeDee released their only child to heaven, they struggled with what to call themselves in the aftermath. There is no specific word in the English language to describe a parent who has lost a child. A wife without her husband is a widow. A husband without his wife is a widower. A child bereft of parents is an orphan. A parent whose child has died before they have is an undefined hollow of hurt. Miscarriage. Sudden infant death. Suicide. Illness. Accident. Death steals a child from this world and then robs the surviving parents of an expressed identity. Yet God Himself knows such devastating grief as His only Son, Jesus, called to Him while dying on the cross, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit” (Luke 23:46). God was Father before Jesus’ earthly birth and remained Father when Jesus released His final breath. God continued as Father when the still body of His Son was laid in a tomb. God lives on today as Father of a risen Son who brings every parent the hope that a child can live again. What do you call a heavenly Father who sacrifices His Son for the universe? For you and for me? Father. Still, Father. When there are no words in the glossary of grief to describe the pain of loss, God is our Father and calls us His children (1 John 3:1).

Listen in as I spend time with Carolyn Keller as she shares with me about her daughter Bethany who had trisomy 13. This episode is full of so much wisdom -- Caroyn shares about her pregnancy journey with Bethany as well as her life in the NICU. She talks about what it was like to receive a life-limiting diagnosis and how she navigated that news with her husband and her 3 living children. And then we talk about what it was like to say goodbye and navigate life after loss. Again, we talk about marriage and parenting and what her faith looked like during that time. Carolyn gives so much wisdom in this episode as well as a ton of practical advice including her favorite resources and books for navigating a life-limiting diagnosis and life after loss and how to walk living children through both of those. Carolyn said something towards the end of our time together, something that only another grieving mom would be able to hear and understand, she said: “I look forward to the sadness because through the sadness, I can have joy remembering my daughter.” Such a beautiful and honest and accurate sentiment. Make sure to listen all the way to the end when Carolyn shares a few more words that I promise will offer you freedom and hope today in your grief journey.  I am so thankful to Carolyn and her willingness to share her story and wisdom with us -- I pray it is a blessing to you.    FREE RESOURCE FOR LIFE AFTER BABY LOSS Over the past 5 years we have helped thousands of women navigate life after the loss of a baby and we pulled our best and most helpful resources all into one easy to access resource.
