Dr. Donese Worden is a Naturopathic doctor and a global health educator. She helps senior women regain sexual vigor and reminds you that menopause is nothing to dread. In fact, she explains that women should be happy, healthy and sexually active until the end of their life. Culturally, we have lost respect for women who are past their fertile years, but sex is so much more than procreation. It provides intimacy and vitality, which is so important for senior women. Dr. Worden shares simple ways you can mitigate the symptoms of menopause so you can enjoy your 3rd chapter to its fullest!   Takeaways: [3:23] In ancient traditions menopause was celebrated; it marked women as wisdom keepers. [3:50] A woman's brain makes decisions considering every outcome and consequence  [4:30] Hormones are powerful messengers that ensure we are physically, emotionally and mentally well [4:40] Environmental factors and stress can block our hormones from performing optimally  [5:40] In modern times, we have lost respect for elderly women,  we view menopause as ovarian failure  [6:40] Men and Women's brains have evolved to serve different functions within the tribe [7:40] Healthy living will mitigate menopausal symptoms [8:20] Hormonal changes have a correlation to brain chemistry  [9:20] Diet, lifestyle and stress management have a huge impact on your hormonal balance [10:18] Vaginal dryness is rarely discussed during a check up [11:16] If you become sexually inactive in your senior years it can begin to close [12:10] Hormones dropping is often the cause of vaginal dryness in senior women [13:00] Intimacy is an important to keeping a high quality of life [14:15] Mindset and attention is a very important aspect of hormonal health [15:10] Seniors often are more sexually active than younger people because they are stress free [17:30] If you want to be more resilient you must find balance between joy, health and stress [18:00] Women are more susceptible than men to heart disease as they age [19:05] The Transylvania effect is proof that we are actually affected by the full moon (the cosmos) [20:20] Menopause is relatively new phenemenon. [21:10] By culturally delaying childbirth we are potentially ,overtime, delaying menopause in women [21:50] Using music to shift an emotion is a great way to increase your superpowers Twitter: “We think of menopause as “men-oh-pause” and ovarian failure and that's looking at it as something to dread, instead of something to be celebrated.” [5:50]    “If you're not keeping your body healthy, you're not exercising, not eating well and keeping your stress where it should be, you will notice symptoms.” [7:40]   “Sexual pleasure is there for a reason, it's not just for procreation!”  [12:00]   “Women should be happy and healthy and having sex all the way to the end of their life.”  [13:24]   “I have people 70 years old to 100 who are having more sex than the 30 and 40 year olds!” [15:10]   “During the full moon we have a harder time getting to sleep, we sleep a shorter amount of time and we don't get as much deep sleep.” [19:45]   “We are connected to the moon, to the sun, to the planets and we've got to give the credence that we are energetic beings and we're connected in many ways and all of those things affect our hormones.” [19:55]   Podcast Disclaimer:  https://resources.thespadr.com/the-womans-doctor/#disclaimer

GP and menopause specialist, Dr Sarah Glynne, joins Dr Louise Newson on the podcast this week to discuss menopause care after breast cancer.  The experts share more about the breast cancer steering group established as part of the Newson Health Menopause Society that is working towards producing a consensus statement to support clinicians and improve the quality of life for menopausal women who have had breast cancer. Dr Sarah Glynne discusses the importance of individualising the risk-benefit ratio for every woman when making decisions around treating the cancer and weighing this up with treating menopausal symptoms. Sarah emphasises the importance of talking through the implications of each of these considerations using a shared decision making process. Sarah's three tips for women after breast cancer: Understand the risks and benefits of the drugs used to treat your breast cancer and what this means for you personally. Ask your oncologist for more information about your own breast cancer, if you are not sure. You can then use the PREDICT tool online for understanding more about your own cancer risks and what additional benefits any treatments may offer. Read about non-hormonal options to help your menopause symptoms and cancer recovery such as diet, yoga, or acupuncture. Try various approaches to find the ones that may bring some benefit to you. Vaginal moisturisers and lubricants may also help and these do not contain hormones, and there are other medications your GP may be able to prescribe for some of your symptoms such as hot flushes. If your menopause symptoms are severe and your quality of life is suffering, ask your clinician to explain the risks for you regarding your cancer prognosis if you decide to take HRT, versus the risks to your quality of life and long-term health if you choose not to take HRT. If you have genitourinary symptoms of soreness and dryness, vaginal hormones are very safe for improving these symptoms. Read information on the balance website and the book ‘Oestrogen Matters' by Avrum Bluming, and make a choice that is right for you through discussion with your clinician using a shared decision making process.

The more people we meet on this podcast, the more unmet needs in the field of women's health emerge, and the number appears to be infinite. Vaginal dryness and painful sex have been prominent topics for some time, but we are now approaching these issues from a new angle. These issues, in particular, can be very common and very debilitating for women who have survived breast cancer and have been thrown into instantaneous menopause with sudden vaginal dryness. Recognizing how concerning this was, our guest decided to change the paradigm for treating vaginal dryness by providing a medical device solution to a problem that has previously only been served by pharmaceuticals. Holly Rockweiler is the co-founder and CEO of Madorra, a company that aims to improve the quality of life for postmenopausal women and breast cancer survivors by giving them the power to choose the non-hormonal treatment option they want to treat vaginal atrophy. Holly's education and training were primarily in biomedical engineering, so she decided to apply that knowledge to create a device that will hopefully solve the problem that so many women face as they enter premature menopause. If you want to hear the story of this women's health maverick, take a listen and enjoy! You can subscribe or listen to previous episodes of the Busine$$ of the V podcast by clicking here. TOPICS COVERED: Meet Holly Rockweiler, the co-founder and CEO of Madorra. Holly was trained in biomedical engineering, and we learn that grew out of Stanford University's Biodesign Program. While interviewing numerous patients and healthcare providers, Holly's team discovered a significant number of breast cancer survivors suffering from vaginal dryness. As hormone replacement therapy was not an option for all of them, the patients were left behind. Rachel asks Dr. Dweck to elaborate on the hormone-related issues, as there is a lot of debate around them. According to Dr. Dweck, breast cancer can cause instant menopause, as opposed to the standard gradual transition into this stage of life. Holly emphasized that patients often feel ill-equipped to make health-related decisions, so they rely on their healthcare provider. Holy's team discovered that vaginal blood flow was critical for lubrication, so they decided to develop a device that would stimulate blood flow in the vagina. The team decided that the device would be non-invasive and simple to use at home based on data gathered from patient interviews. Dweck brings up the FDA's special program for helping expedite innovative devices and technologies, and learns that Madorra was indeed granted breakthrough status in 2021. Dweck's next thought-provoking question seeks to determine whether there were any incidental benefits of using this device. Rachel's question leads us to the next topic: When will the product be available? The device is not yet available for purchase, but they are definitely getting there. Those interested in contacting Madorra or simply keeping up with the latest news can do so via their website, as well as Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Since devices of this type are typically expensive, and not all patients can afford them, Dr. Dweck wonders how much this device will cost once it is released. When it comes to payment, there will be some out-of-pocket expenses at first, but the goal is to develop reimbursement so that the product can be paid for by insurance. Rachel is impressed by Holly's strength and courage, and she would like to hear some advice for people who are going through a difficult time. The key is to stay motivated and focused on your goal at all times, even when you're having a bad day, because your goal will help you move forward. HOT FLASH: Those undergoing certain treatments for breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and uterine cancer may find themselves in instant menopause.   QUOTES: “Breast cancer survivors had this problem with vaginal dryness and were feeling really frustrated because they felt like the healthcare system was kind of leaving them behind.” (Holly) “We found that there were so many other women who didn't have a cancer history, but felt uncomfortable using hormones for a variety of reasons, and they too felt like they were being left behind.” (Holly) “I consider Alyssa a global menopause whisperer.” (Rachel) “We found that patients were feeling ill-equipped to actually make the decision themselves and were wanting to rely on their healthcare provider.” (Holly) “I think that the comfort level around speaking about vaginal dryness, using the word vagina and talking about painful sex is much more acceptable than it once was. The conversation around this has just grown so much and that's part of the success.” (Dr. Dweck) “We did a bunch of research and determined that one of the key aspects to vaginal lubrication is actually vaginal blood flow.” (Holly) “We've started to see through our clinical work that over time not only are we increasing lubrication, but it is also leading to improvements in the tissue health itself.” (Holly) “Our goal with this commitment to clinical evidence is to develop reimbursement so that the product can be paid for by insurance.” (Holly) “What I think is your superpower is no matter what is going on in your professional and personal life, at least on the surface, you look unflappable.” (Rachel) FURTHER RESOURCES: Madorra www.madorra.com Holly @LinkedIn  LINKS FOR BUSINE$$ OF THE V: Website: www.businessofthev.com Twitter : @businessofthev Instagram : @businessofthev Subscribe to our Youtube channel : Business of the V - YouTube Dr. Alyssa Dweck: https://drdweck.com Rachel Braun Scherl: Home - Rachel Braun Scherl

When she and her wife, Al, started talking about having a baby, they presumed Matilda would carry the pregnancy using Al's egg and anonymous donor sperm. However, Al's brother agreed to donate his sperm so they began their conception journey doing home insemination. After five months with no success, they opted to go through an IVF clinic and started with IUI before moving onto IVF. Matilda talks at length about her expectations of labour through a midwifery lens and the reality of contractions, birthing and breastfeeding.

Vaginal steaming. Yoni steaming. Pelvic steaming. Whatever name you use for this practice, it's likely you've heard of it, and maybe even tried it. Or... maybe this concept is totally new to you.At the most basic level, it's like making a strong tea and sitting over it with a bare pelvic floor. Almost as simple as it can get. And really, it's ancient. Steam itself is one of the easiest ways to receive benefits from herbs (especially aromatic ones). And in my mind is an underused form of hydrotherapy that was likely practiced by MOST of our ancestral lineages. But over the past few years, there's been a bit of a vaginal steaming revolution. And I think for good reason. It's a deeply healing practice that has many benefits, and certified vaginal steam facilitator Julia Demillones Moore shares all about it.Listen to this week's episode to learn:basics on how to steam + some simple herbal combinations to trywhat kinds of conditions benefit from steaming (hint: A LOT)when you definitely want to avoid steamingwhat the best times of your cycle are to steamsome reasons you may want to be cautious or work with a practitioner3 common myths + misconceptions about steaminga simple tip on how to steam when you're traveling!Resources:Check out the shownotes for all of Julia's links + those mentioned: Herbal steaming for pelvic healthLearn to track your own cycle so you can safely steam at the most ideal times of your cycle with this FREE cycle tracking guideEpisode 5: Are you ovulating?

In episode 342 Laura details her experience with gender disappointment, a confronting experience that she never anticipated but one that she shares without reservation. After being diagnosed with placenta previa, a scan at 32 weeks revealed that she had a shortened cervix. Bed rest and progesterone pessaries definitely helped and she was induced at 37 weeks and experienced a quick and positive vaginal birth. She fell pregnant with her daughter two years later and regular scans showed that her cervix was shortening quite quickly so she went on strict bed rest at 23 weeks. Thankfully she remained pregnant till 39 weeks and used the TENS machine and breathing practises to navigate a quick labour.    Did you know I wrote a book?

There are so many pregnancy myths and misinformation that it's truly a delight to bust them all. Birth is painful? Nope. Birth is actually meant to be the biggest orgasm of your life. The safest place to have a baby is in a hospital? Nope. It's actually the most dangerous. The safest place to have a baby is at home. You need an OBYGN to “deliver” your baby for you. Lol, nope. Your body and eons of encoded wisdom know exactly what to do if you can remove all of the bullshit programming and in-doctor-nation that tells you otherwise. It's “risky” to have a baby over the age of 30 or 35 or whatever the arbitrary number is they invent. NOPE. So long as you are healthy and create space, you can get pregnant whenever you want. And that is the topic of today's podcast: Conscious conception and a woman who is pregnant with her first child at age 45. Today's well-f**ked all star interview features Katalin, a first time mother who conceived her baby at age 45. She's taken a few of my salons and then signed up for Sexy Mama. Within months of trying, she and her partner conceived. In her words: “We never went to see a doctor, we just trusted that it will happen naturally.”She was terrified of birth prior to taking Sexy Mama. She'd bought into the fear mongering for most of her life—the sole purpose of which is to shepherd women into hospitals by convincing them of the lie that childbirth is far too dangerous to go through on their own—and she transcended it to the point where now after completing the salon she is “totally comfortable and will not even consider a hospital birth.”In today's episode:  My top 3 tips for natural conception at any age and stage  The deeper problem with IVF and forced fertility  The role of the quality of your relationship in your fertility journey  Vaginal reconnaissance  Well-f**ked all star Katarin shares how she went from skeptical to firmly committed to home birth and how she conceived naturally at age 45 The Sexy Mama Salon begins today! This is my 8-week online salon on all things holistic pregnancy and ecstatic childbirth.It's my view and experience that just like all women can have vaginal orgasms and voracious libidos, so too can they have orgasmic, transcendent, blissful births.Yes, every woman can.She just need to clear the blockages and programming she's taken on via a corrupt medical system and culture at large that seeks to remove a woman from this power.I seek to restore her to it.That's what we do in Sexy Mama. We systematically go through every stage from conception through pregnancy, birth and postpartum to "reprogram" you with all the strength and power and ecstasy to make these peak, life-affirming experiences and create an imprint of bliss for life.Yes, it's possible for everyone.These women are living proof. And so too can you be.Even if you aren't currently pregnant or have immediate plans for children, I would suggest signing up so you can begin the "reprogramming" process and create confidence in your choices, knowing they are backed up by facts and impeccable research.See you inside! ~Kxx

Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows! This is where we answer our community's wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging questions to help people get back on track! Check out today's questions:    Tommy: Hi Dr C you incredible human being. I'm a level 2 IHP. For years Iv been battling self diagnosed lupus, my face goes embarrassingly red. Iv been working on this and have it more under control than ever. But since the summer has come, Iv really noticed how bad heat affects it. I thought it was just food such as histamines and sensitivity. I know heat can trigger histamines. Iv run the OAT and I'm high on 3 yeast markers including oxalates. By time this gets read out I should be some way through the CBO protocol, however I have done this before, but I didn't stick to the meal plan. Iv also purchased DAO and Iv tried many supplements including quercitin. I know there still so much more info you would need but do you have anything you can suggest.   Ann: Due to my increased risk of breast cancer Im on a medicine to eliminate estrogen in my body ( I have also had my ovaries removed). The 5 year limit to take the medicine is nearing, so Im wondering what I can do, from your perspective, to reduce estrogen in my body? I know that maintaining a healthy body weight is important but do you have any other thoughts? Thank you so much!   Marina: Hi Dr Cabral, My baseline HRV has dropped from 50-60 to 30-35 ever since i got the covid v :( September last year. I have had severe insomnia for sometime after the v, however this has resolved after couple of months, HRV has never recovered. I have taken rest days, zone 2 training, cold showers, medtation, nothing works. Lab results look good. I am 37, workout 4-5 times a week. No alcohol, don't smoke. Eat clean/organic. What can I do to bring it back up to where it used to be? Appreciate your help.   Anonymous: Hi Dr. Cabral, I love your podcast. Thank you for everything that you do. I want to ask if there's a way to remove painful periods? I was born with two uteruses and I have extremely painful periods on the first day and sometimes the second. I'm in pain as if I was being stabbed in my uterus 1000 times. Ever since I got my period when I was 13 years old, I've been taking at least one advil a month to relieve myself of the period pain. And when I turned 23 I started to develop itchy scalp, vaginal itch, and itchy ears. Listening to your podcast helped me discover the OATS and CBO protocol. I've taken CBO twice and the itch has reduced but not completely gone. Vaginal itch is still there a bit as well as the ears and scalp. My OATS came back better after two CBOs but I feel that I'm still not getting better because I still take an advil once a month due to my painful period. I know that my stomach got weaker because i take advil once a month. And i want to figure out how I can get rid of the pain. I recently bought Inflamma Soothe in the hopes to getting a fast acting relief during my painful period. Another thing I want to mention is that I was also born with 1 kidney and I want to ask if its safe to take a lot of supplements? I feel quite lost right now. Thank you in advance.   Stacey: Hello , I'm loving the book and podcasts so much ! I have POTS / dysautonomia and inappropriate sinus tachycardia, SVT , Raynauds, hashimotos and Extreme sensory stimulation sensitivities .. like it has ruined my life ! I'm looking for a place to start but don't have all the funds to order the big 5 . Also I'm interested if Dr. Cabral has seen LDN helping any of these issues as a friend has had great success with it . I'm very sensitive to medication and even herbal medicine.. so it scares me to try to much .. I am on Xanax for the POTS and hydroxychoriquin for my autoimmune issues . I'm truly scared I will die early and if I do live long it will be a long slow death with zero quality of life . I have been to holistic Drs and after spending thousands of dollars nothing helped .

The Case:  Lisa is 49 and dealing with irregular periods, hot flashes, and vaginal dryness. She is also gaining weight around her abdomen that she's struggling to lose. Her doctor told her it was menopause and to get used to these menopause symptoms as the new normal. The Investigation While menopause is normal for someone Lisa's age, suffering through the symptoms doesn't have to be. There are many things that can be done and I knew that we needed to explore the options.  Esther Blum is an integrative dietician, high-performance coach and the author of many books including her latest, See Ya Later, Ovulator. She joined us on Health Mysteries Solved episode 101 to talk about a weight loss mystery so I knew that she was the perfect person to talk about Lisa's case.    Demystifying Menopause: Quick Facts About Menopause A woman is considered in menopause when she has gone 12 consecutive months without a period. Perimenopause is the phase of life that happens before that (and can last up to 10 years).  The average age of menopause is 51. During menopause, there are a many biochemical changes that affect a woman from the brain down to the vagina. The most significant change happening is that the woman stops ovulating and can no longer get pregnant.  As the ovaries decrease hormone production, the adrenals step in. This hormonal shift can cause a variety of symptoms, including: Fatigue Brain fog Night sweats Insomnia Irritability Weight gain Gut issues Vaginal dryness Some or all of these symptoms may be a part of a woman's menopause experience.  Women are Not Prepared for Menopause (and They're Doctors Aren't Helping!) Despite the fact that menopause happens to every woman, many find they are not prepared for it. Esther says that they often don't have the tools, testing, or any sense of how to advocate for themselves and their body.  When they visit their doctor to discuss the symptoms, they are often told that it's just menopause and often doesn't give them any solutions. When solutions are offered, it might be to take birth control pills, get an IUD and even to take daily antihistamines! Preparing for Menopause  During perimenopause, it's a good idea to do some tests to get a sense of your baseline however, keep in mind that estrogen levels can fluctuate as much as 30% on any given day in menopause. For this reason, some doctors may be reluctant to test estrogen levels. Additional tests might include a urine test (Dutch Complete) to look at metabolites, detoxification pathways, and methylation, a stool test, and a GI map to test for the enzyme beta-glucuronidase.  It is possible to start using bioidentical hormones in low doses during perimenopause to help regulate hormones based on what these tests reveal.  Bioidentical Hormone Therapy vs. Hormone Replacement Therapy There are two common types of hormone therapy for women in menopause and perimenopause. Traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is made in a lab, so it's synthetic.  Bioidentical hormones are usually plant based (yams and sometimes soy) making them much more compatible.  Esther prefers bioidentical hormone therapy over hormone replacement therapy because: They bypass the liver and gut so they are better absorbed. They're applied transdermally on the skin (cream or patch). You have more control over the dosage with a cream whereas the synthetic hormone replacement therapy is a one-size-fits-all pill.  How Long Can You Stay on Hormone Therapy for Menopause There's a lot of conflicting information out there about how long you can safely stay on hormone replacement therapy. Much of this is based on old studies that have since been disproven. Many traditional doctors have not continued to believe that women should limit hormone replacement therapy to a few years but this is not accurate. New research suggests that not only can women stay on hormone replacement therapy for years (before and after menopause) there may be benefits.    The benefits of continued used of bioidentical hormones include: Reduction of menopause symptoms like hot flashes, insomnia, irritability, and vaginal dryness Improvement of skin elasticity (meaning fewer wrinkles) Brain health Cardiovascular health Weight management Many women would wait until their symptoms are really bad before going on hormone therapy for menopause because they think there is a limited time they can be on them. Now that thinking has changed on how long you can be on hormone therapy, there is no reason to wait. Starting on hormone therapy during perimenopause can decrease the impact of symptoms and make menopause more comfortable.  Why Hormone Therapy is Not Enough during Perimenopause and Menopause Doing hormone replacement therapy is not a magic bullet to symptom free menopause. Esther says that there are many things women can do to support their body during these changing times.  Here are few ways to optimize hormone therapy during menopause: Good sleep hygiene. That means, go to bed and get up at consistent times so your body gets sufficient sleep (it's when your adrenals reset and repair themselves) Decrease stress by reducing how much you watch the news, especially first thing in the morning Get some fresh air and go for a walk Do strength training 2-3 times per week (especially good for post menopausal women to build bone density and manage weight) Cut out (or cut down) caffeine intake as it can interfere with sleep patterns. Cut out or cut down alcohol use Adopt a clean eating diet and optimize your protein intake These healthy habits will especially help if you are trying to get rid of any weight gained on the abdomen (aka ‘menopot'). Creams, Pills, Patches, or Pellets: Which is the Best Way to Take Hormone Therapy for Menopause There are many ways to introduce hormones to your system. Here are a few options you may be presented with: Topical Creams: These are commonly where therapy starts. Many are given progesterone to start and then as menopause progresses, estrogen will be blended in. You can also get creams specifically for treating vaginal dryness. You are also in control and could do things like microdosing. Patch: This is an alternative way to have hormones slowly released into the system. Usually, these stay on for a month.  Pills: These are ingested which means they have to go through the gut and liver.  Pellets (aka BIOTE): This requires a minor surgical procedure. These pellets contain a 6 month supply that is meant to be slowly released. The downside is that they are inserted into a small incision usually on the backside so there is a risk of infection. This is also a more expensive option and you don't really have control over how the hormones are actually released and metabolized however the claim is that it is released in a way that works with your body.  Mystery Solved With Lisa, it only took a few test to get a clearer picture of what was going on with her menopause. We did a Dutch test and found that she had low DHEA, testosterone, progesterone, and estrogen. Her progesterone and DHEA were particularly low.  We started by boosting her DHEA as it is a precursor to both estrogen and testosterone. We then supported her progesterone. She was receiving these for 14 days and then taking a 14 day break.  We did this while supporting diet and lifestyle changes. Happy Ending It didn't take long for her to start feeling much better. She was experiencing fewer hot flashes, more energy, and she even started to see the weight come off.  She started working with her doctor on bioidentical estrogen support and even more weight came off.  Eliminating Health Mysteries For Lisa, we were able to find that missing piece of the health puzzle, get her out of menopause-denial, and help her regain her health. Could this be the missing clue for you or someone in your life?  Links: Resources mentioned Thanks to my guest Esther Blum. You can connect with here on Instagram or through her website.

Let's start with the fact that vaginal moisturizers and lubricants are not the same thing. Lubricants do not al­ter vaginal tissues; they just provide a slippery barrier to reduce friction at the time of intercourse. A moisturizer, on the other hand, is intended to change the water con­tent of the cells (hence “moisturizer”), resulting in tissues that are more elastic, thicker, and have the enhanced ability to produce fluid. From breastfeeding to menopause, vaginal dryness can happen at any stage in life. How can you get back to lubricating naturally? What lubricants are best for you and your body? What can your partner do to help? Vaginal moisturizers, lubricants, and vaginal estrogen can be helpful tools for improving sexual wellbeing, but how many of us know how to choose the right ones?

Her next pregnancy was smooth and straightforward right up till 39 weeks when a late scan showed that her baby's head was small and she was advised to have an induction. She went into spontaneous labour but after 28 hours she opted for an epidural that worked really well for her; she relaxed, dilated quickly and birthed her baby girl with ease. She had continuity of care with a known midwife for her second birth and she loved the lessons in The Birth Class which prepared her dream waterbirth.

In today's episode, Cammie shares her two wildly different birth experiences and emphasises a little known but important fact: if you don't feel supported or respected, you can change care providers at any stage of pregnancy. For her first pregnancy she opted for private obstetric care and while she intended to have a low-intervention birth, she was induced and had an epidural and vacuum-assisted birth. After choosing public hospital care for her second birth, she was 22 weeks when she was told she would need to birth at a tertiary hospital far from home because of high BMI. Regardless of her health and wellness, the hospital policy dictated that she was high-risk because of her larger body. Disappointed and disheartened, she started looking into her options for homebirth. She worked through her fears, embraced care from Mama Services in Kensington, accessed her hospital records from her first birth and actively prepared for a physiological birth at home.

In this episode Sarah comes on to share her two birth stories! During her first birth she was induced after her water broke on its own. She had major anxiety about getting an epidural but chose to get one after feeling those Pitocin contractions. After three miscarriages she got pregnant with her daughter and had a very anxiety filled pregnancy. She was induced at 38 weeks due to concerns of cholestasis and gave birth to her daughter via C-section. Thank you so much Sarah for sharing both of your stories with us today!

We also discuss the impact of the Women's Health Initiative and therapies in addressing all of these issues.  I hope you will enjoy this conversation! Stay tuned for more! IN THIS EPISODE YOU WILL LEARN: How Dr. Betsy got into urogynecology. Some of the common issues women go to see Dr. Betsy for. What sets women up for pelvic floor issues? How and when to do kegel exercises. What pelvic atrophy is and how to avoid developing it. Why women need to be diligent about emptying their bladders. What is interstitial cystitis, and what makes people susceptible to it? How the loss of estrogen impacts the vagina. Changes that occur in the vulva as women age. Dr. Betsy shares her take on the Women's Health Initiative and hormone replacement. The problem with propylene glycol. Proactive ways to address conditions like painful intercourse, lichen sclerosis, vulvodynia, and rectal itching.  The testing Dr. Betsy prefers for the gut microbiome.  How is the vagina connected to the brain?

When Kate was seven months pregnant with her second son, her husband, Nathan, was injured while playing a game of football. Their whole world turned upside down when doctors informed them that he had fractured his C3 vertebrae and was a quadriplegic. Kate admits that she totally forgot about her pregnancy as soon as she learnt of Nathan's accident but thankfully his nurses stepped in and coordinated midwifery care for her. The Prince of Wales and Royal Women's hospitals worked together to ensure Nathan could be with Kate for the birth. It was a fast and joyful birth and for those that have watched the video, it's an unforgettable glimpse into an incredibly precious experience.  Kate and Nathan have a long and expensive road ahead of them so if you have watched their birth film and want to support them, you can make a donation on their GoFundMe page .

If there's one word to describe this episode with Emma, it's joyful. She takes us through her three pregnancies and births in between nomadic living in a bus and on a sailing boat. Her first two births were really smooth but in her third pregnancy a fibroid was discovered on an early ultrasound and it created persistent issues around where she would birth because she was at risk of postpartum haemorrhage. She talks at length about navigating uncertainty in her third pregnancy and then giving birth on the worst night of the Northern Rivers floods. Emma had three physiological births and was really well informed about her options. Consider this a very inspiring episode!

Our guest in this episode, Greg Leyer, PhD, has an academic background in deadly pathogenic bacteria, such as botulism and other foodborne illnesses. Now, he focuses on healthy bacteria and joins James to discuss benefits of probiotics for the vaginal microbiome. While gastrointestinal health is thought to depend on microbiome diversity, the vaginal cavity requires a more homogenous population of Lactobacillus species. By producing organic acids—mainly lactic acid—lactobacilli help maintain a pH below 4, which prevents bacterial vaginosis. Listen to the full episode to learn more about: How and why taking oral probiotics affects the vaginal microbiome Forms of microbiome supplementation, like probiotics, spores and heat-inactivated bacteria Efficacy of probiotic supplementation in different geographic locations and ethnicity And check out Dr. Leyer's ongoing work: Your Health - Our Science UREX™ – The world's most documented probiotics for women's urogenital health Women's Health | The Probiotics Institute by Chr.

Curious about vaginal seeding and whether it is safe and recommended for you and your baby? To date, more than 20 studies have found that the microbiome in cesarean-born babes is different than that of vaginally born infants. These differences can persist to 4 years of age and may pose lasting health consequences. I know this may sound scary but I have some great news to share: researchers and microbiologists are exploring solutions to help increase the health outcomes for mothers and babies through a technique they named Vaginal Seeding, which can be used following a cesarean. This is ground-breaking and pivotal research as the number of cesareans continues to rise on a global level. Tune in to today's episode to learn what vaginal seeding is, the current research supporting the technique, the potential benefits and risks of vaginal seeding, and ways you can support the newborn microbiome. Let's explore this further. For the accompanying article, go to avivaromm.com/vaginal-seeding-after-cesarean/.    Thank you so much for taking the time to tune in to your body, yourself, and this podcast!
