Becoming and being a parent is tough, perhaps the most challenging thing we will ever do as a woman. Don't get me wrong I love being a mum but the psychological shift is huge, your life and priorities are literally turned upside down overnight. Our emotional wellbeing is more fragile and important than ever but is often right down the priority list. This week Sophie Burch aka The Mamma Coach @themamacoach is here to share with us why and how we should and must change this. Sophie is on a mission to put mental and emotional wellbeing more on the map in pregnancy, birth and parenting. She has 16 years as a mother to 4 boys (including twins), as a perinatal therapist and coach, and a birth trauma and PND survivor. Her experience has shaped who she is and awakened her to a life of compassion and deep empathy for everyone from pre-conception through parenting to menopause. Her approach is simple: to allow people to feel held and heard, safe and worthy of love and self acceptance.. Sophie believes that our strength comes from self compassion, kindness and knowledge, which is her ethos. Her focus for 2022 is “connection” and she intends to connect with and hold space for as many people as possible. 2020 saw her launch her Book, Beyond Birth: A Mindful Guide for Early Parenting, which is an integration of all she knows will help people have a more balanced, positive experience as they transition from pregnancy to parenting. The guide is available as a published book on Amazon, an ebook & audiobook so it really is a must read that is accessible to all and is linked below: https://tinyurl.com/2p862ehw A big thank you to the sponsor of this episode- Cheeky Rascals.

A quarta tentativa de Ciro Gomes chegar à Presidência da República motivou o PDT, seu partido, a lançar candidaturas ao executivo nos mais diversos estados do País, em uma estratégia tradicional e conhecida por todos no universo político: a de formar palanques para eventos de campanha, bem como compor o famoso “santinho”. Por ora, a sigla já tem acertada 11 postulações aos governos dos 26 estados e do Distrito Federal, fora alianças capazes de oferecer ao presidenciável sustentação mínima ao longo dos 45 dias de campanha. O pré-candidato do PDT ao governo de São Paulo Elvis Cezar é o convidado do quadro Conversa Trabalhista, em um bate papo sobre sua filiação ao partido; a relação com o trabalhismo; e como pretende adotar o PND no estado mais rico do Brasil.

In this next episode I share my chat with Michelle who talks me through her one pregnancy and the birth of her son. Michelle suffered from anxiety very early on in her pregnancy that crippled her everyday, impacting her sleep and general ability to function. She was completely consumed with worry, fear and guilt to mention just a few emotions. She talks me through the birth of her son which wasn't what she hoped for leaving her in a very vulnerable place. Michelles son was admitted to hospital at 12 days, another hugely traumatic experience. She then talks me through her experience with PND which is such an honest account of how tough life can be for those who suffer on a daily basis. This episode might not be suitable for everyone but I know it will also help many who are in the depths of anxiety, recovering from birth trauma and or are living with PND.http://aimsireland.ie/birth-trauma/ https://www.restorativebirthservices.iehttps://www.resilientemotions.ie/perinatal--emotional-wellbeing/birth-traumaBIRTH STORIES LIVE - Ticketshttps://www.kiwico.com/panda - Code IREBIRTH to avail of 30% off your first order Support the podcastBuy Me a CoffeePatreon See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Amielia is a 21 year old Djab Wurrung woman and this week we would like to share her birth stories in celebration of NAIDOC week.Amielia only found out about the details of her indigenous ancestry when she was 12 and who her family were related to. She grew up learning about her cultural practices and a part of the disappointment in her first birth was the disconnect between these practices and the public hospital system. Later she would learn there was a program dedicated to indigenous women that she would seek to be a part of in her next pregnancy.When she first fell pregnant it was unexpected but despite this her partner vowed to support her no matter which path she took. She speaks about the lack of knowledge she had going into the pregnancy and how it felt going through her first pregnancy amid Covid lockdowns in Victoria.At 41 and 5 days, doctors suggested an induction which she agreed to. She had tested positive for Group B Strep. After what was deemed ‘failure to progress' at 2cm dilation Amielia felt powerless and agreed to an emergency caesarean after her baby's heart rate started to show signs of distress.After this experience Amielia did not want to be induced again. She hired a student doula and ended up experiencing the vaginal birth she always wanted at almost 43 weeks. Due to her baby passing meconium in her womb she agreed to have her baby tested for infection and tells us how her baby ended up staying in hospital for 5 days and what that experience was like for her.Thank you Amielia for sharing your VBAC journey with us.

Today we meet Tina a registered nurse and mum of two who lives with her husband in Melbourne. She shares her two very different birth and postpartum experiences with us. After Tina's son was born via an emergency caesarean he experienced what is called TTN (Transient Tachypnea of the Newborn). Babies with TTN have extra fluid in their lungs or the fluid leaves too slowly from their lungs. It is more likely to occur in c-section babies. She shares what it was like for her having a baby in special care and then the NICU ward. Having an unexpected surgical birth played a heavy role in her overall mental wellbeing in those early days.In her VBAC pregnancy Tina opted to have a student midwife follow her on her journey, and we are very thankful that Tina invited her student midwife, Rebecca, to join us in today's interview. You'll get to hear her perspective on VBAC and following women on their journey to birth during the show.~ PATREON ~Please consider joining our Patreon if you would like to show your support for the podcast from just AUD $2.00 a month:https://www.patreon.com/vbacbirthstories~ AFFILIATES ~Access discounts with our amazing affiliates:Birth Time film:USE DISCOUNT CODE: CICADA20https://www.birthtime.world/a/2147503775/Eb2KfvxtPartum Panties:USE DISCOUNT CODE: Vbacbirthstorieshttps://www.partumpanties.com.auThe Birth Store:USE DISCOUNT CODE: VBAChttps://thebirthstore.com.au~ Notes ~Student Midwife: Rebecca.
