Kel, otherwise known as Mrs. Smart Money, is a mindful money mentor and author of the sellout book ‘Mindful Money, More Money, More Freedom, More Happiness' from Orpen Press. She helps people who are fed up with being on the back foot with money and life. She has developed a system to get your income working for you so that you can take the stress out of money and buy back your freedom and choice, one slice at a time. Kel gives some great examples and tips of how she has been able to save her family hundreds of euros every month on groceries. Our conversation touches on clothing and how you can get rid of things you never wear, organizing things and spending less on current styles. There is a great importance of making sure you put at least a little bit of money aside, even if money is tight, for you and your spouse to spend separately, and then money meant for your family to go and do something fun.About Kel and her business 1:04Activities and keeping track of finances 8:37Saving on groceries 17:20Giving up clothes 24:51Balance 31:23Spending habits and mindset shift 36:46“I think it's really really important, even if money is a bit tight, to find a small amount in the budget every month that each individual parent gets that is their money to spend as they please for something that's just for them. Not for coffee out with friends, but something purely for them that they love to do, and that I think is really, really important.” 32:26https://mrssmartmoney.com/@mrssmartmoneyhqhttps://www.facebook.com/theirishmummy/https://www.instagram.com/the_irish_mummy/https://www.theirishmummy.com
Dr. Dan interviews author (and mother) Alena Dillon about My Body Is A Big Fat Temple, her memoir about the grit and glory surrounding pregnancy and motherhood not often discussed.

Alena discusses marriage, morning sickness, motherhood, mom guilt, body changes, breastfeeding, baby blues, the heartache of not loving her son as she thinks she should, pandemic parenting, being present, postpartum depression, selfcare, singing, and her new running regime with Dr. Dan.

Today, to acknowledge Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month (and the 7 year anniversary of my own pregnancy loss of Clark) I go deeper into some of the moments that stick out to me most when I think about my own pregnancy loss. I get emotional in this one team, so bear with me, but I dive into some of the stigma (only tell people you're pregnant after the 1st trimester!) that causes women to feel alone & isolated during a time when they need community the most. Bring some tissues for this one! xoxo, Jessi This is My Truth is a newly launched podcast, and I'd love to know what you think!

The CDC is amping up its plea for pregnant people to get vaccinated.Vaccination rates for pregnant people are far lower than those of the general public – fewer than one-third were vaccinated before or during their pregnancy despite pregnancy being on the CDC's list of conditions that increase the risk of contracting a severe case of COVID-19.Clinical vaccine trials have historically excluded pregnant people and COVID-19 vaccines were no different. But studies conducted after the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines were authorized showed that they have no adverse effects on those who were pregnant. We'll talk about the factors contributing to those low vaccination rates among pregnant and breastfeeding people, including vaccine fertility misinformation.Want to support 1A?

In this episode I share about the final days of my pregnancy, which were spent in the hospital. I did not have any health concerns my entire pregnancy so to have concerns arise as babygirl and I reached the final stretch was overwhelming. I am grateful that all the doctors worst case scenario concerns did not occur. A special thank you to all my friends and family who have offered support along the way. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/heartonthemic/message

Today, Cynthia and Trisha talk about the words, behaviors, and "recommendations" that concern us most around third trimester pregnancy topics such as: elective inductions, big babies, due dates, failure to progress, and vaginal exams. How your provider thinks about, discusses and manages these topics tells you a lot about whether or not your birth goals will be supported. We are here to give you our best knowledge and advice on when and how to know if your provider is right for you!

October has been designated as Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. One in four families will lose a baby during pregnancy, delivery, or infancy. Bryan and Brandy Davis became one of those families in January of 2018. Their sweet Hattie Grace was diagnosed with Trisomy 18 while in the womb, and the Davises had ten precious hours with her before she went to be with Jesus. Though it was brief, Hattie's life had meaning and purpose and continues to have an impact today. In the first half of our conversation, Bryan and Brandy share Hattie's story, talk about grieving as a couple, and discuss how God has worked in their lives since that time. Be sure and come back next week to hear some practical advice from the Davises about life after the loss of a baby.

One day I stopped in my tracks and had this moment of clarity as I realised that I had this frantic energy in - this anxiety-riddled energy flowing through my mindset - when I hit the pause button as I was listening to podcasts at 1.5 speed.It was like I'd been rushing and pushing everywhere and creating this sense of dis-ease within my body and mindset.And this podcast speed was a sort of metaphor for my wider life.S L O W D O W NWas the message that had been coming through loud and clear.Personal development is never once and done. It's an ongoing process of consistently bringing ourselves back on track and practicing daily rituals to help ourselves thrive and every now and again, since that moment, I have needed to bring myself back out of the frantic energy and back into a calmer, and slower frame of being.In this podcast, I talk about my recent experience and some of the mindset shifts I've had, but also the most important step in welcoming calmer energy - which is first having the awareness of when you're letting your mind race and consciously choosing another path.Can't wait to hear what you think x
In this episode we're talking about the funny things, like sentences and phrases, our kids will say because we say them. Adam always says the phrase “Give me a second” or the word “Literally” and our kids will repeat them often. What we say and even how we act or treat our children has a direct impact on who they become and how they will behave. Over the years we've discovered that as we say and do annoying things, our kids will repeat them, revealing to us our own habits that maybe need to be changed. Our son said a funny prayer that came from some funny experiences in him missing school and running errands with Rosie.

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.

They want to remind all listeners that this is an opinion based episode and to always do what works for you and your baby.

Caitlin and Sophia discuss a variety of sleep products like sound machines, clocks, fans, swaddles, location for sleep, lighting and other items.

Be sure to test out the products if at all possible, even if you decide to purchase 2nd hand.

Have you ever prayed for a miracle? Maybe for healing for a friend, a loved one, or even yourself? Maybe that miracle did not happen- I know a lot of times we can be frustrated. This is why I love the words that Elizabeth Leon shared this week on the podcast. She said, “The miracle you get is not always the miracle you prayed for.” I think there is so much wisdom in her words, especially after you hear her story. We are going to be talking about her book, Let Yourself Be Loved: Big Lessons from a Little Life. Oct. 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, so I asked Elizabeth to share her story of John Paul Raphael's life and how God took her greatest heartbreak and catapulted her to her greatest growth. There is so much truth that Elizabeth shares and I am so thankful she is not wasting her pain, but instead using it to help another hurting heart. I promise you do not want to miss one word of what she shares this week on the podcast.

A vaccine contains a weakened or killed form of a disease-causing micro-organism that causes your body to produce antibodies. This provides immunity without actually inducing the disease. Vaccines are a very controversial topic. This episode introduces what vaccines are and gets into specifics on the Tdap vaccine during pregnancy. In addition to different types of vaccines, they contain many ingredients. These ingredients serve a particular function like increasing your immune response or as a byproduct of the processing. Tdap provides immunity for tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough) and is recommended during pregnancy. Get the evidence-based risks and benefits of getting the Tdap vaccine during pregnancy so you can make an informed decision on whether it is right for you.

In honor of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, we partnered with Stacey Cardon of Soul Garden Coaching to develop this meditation, to cultivate compassion and understanding and tenderness toward your body after the death of your baby. After the stillbirth of my son, I felt like my body failed me and him, and it has taken me a lot of prayer, mediation, and pondering to be *okay* with my body. I hope that this short body scan meditation helps bring a measure of peace to your heart.

We live in a pretty amazing time. Private citizens are going to outer space, cars are able to drive themselves to places without a human, all kinds of crazy things that our grandparents would never have imagined. I love hearing about the advances in science and technology. And what we're talking about today might seem like it's always been around, but it's actually fairly new. We're talking about the idea of surrogacy. Being a surrogate mother means you carry someone else's baby for them. And the first surrogate pregnancy just happened in 1985. Scientists and doctors just figured this out recently, during my lifetime! We're talking today with Emily. She lives in Canada, and she was a surrogate. I could tell when we first spoke that she was kind of an upbeat, positive person. I wanted to know how surrogacy works, why she wanted to do it, if she got paid for it, all those things. She answered my initial questions, then we got into her story. So today, we're going to chat with Emily as she takes us on this journey of when she decided to be a surrogate mother for a young couple there in Canada. She had never done this before, but she had some basic expectations of how it was supposed to work. But what actually happened was not what she expected at all.

2021 is shaping up to be one of the most devastating years for abortion access in decades. State legislatures have enacted a blitz of new anti-abortion legislation. As of September 1st, when Texas's six-week abortion ban went into effect, abortion has become functionally illegal in the state. The law, which deputizes citizens to sue anyone involved in abortion care, has emboldened other states to introduce copy cat bills, threatening to make it near-impossible to access an abortion in parts of the country. The Supreme Court is gearing up to hear challenges to some of these state laws including a case from Mississippi that directly challenges the 1973 precedent set in Roe v. Wade. Given the court's conservative super majority, many legal experts are warning that access to abortion may hang on Congressional action. The Women's Health Protection Act, a bill that could legally enshrine the right to abortion care, passed the House on September 24th but faces a battle in the Senate. To discuss the state of abortion rights and to preview what's to come this fall, we're joined by 3 experts leading the legal dialogue: Melissa Murray, constitutional and family law professor at NYU Law and co-host of Strict Scrutiny, Imani Gandy, senior editor at the Rewire News Group and co-host of the podcast Boom! Lawyered, and our very own Alexa Kolbi-Molinas, senior staff attorney at the ACLU's Reproductive Freedom Project.

Podcaster, health coach, and Jordan's pregnancy twin, Chelsey Jade Curtis, comes on the show for a girly get-together to chat about plant-based pregnancy, professional growth in the not-always-so-friendly public sphere, and recovery from disordered eating. There are so many juicy nuggets for everyone to feel inspired by, from Chelsea's journey to becoming a podcaster, dealing with public criticism, and how she integrated her shadow, to her painful struggle with disordered eating, path to healing, and how IIN health coach training galvanized her passion for nutrition, science, and psychology. Of course, there are LOTS of pregnancy parallels to dive into. Chelsey opens up about letting go of perfectionism to trust her body – even when it's calling for IHOP pancakes and her intentions were to only eat clean. She and Jordan also bond over their plant-based pregnancy experiences, and dealing with “mommy police” opinions on diet, restrictions, and animal protein myths. Plus: imagining how this Christmas will look very different for both of them with a boy baby Sag or Capricorn in the mix (due dates are a week apart from each other)!
