I wanted to stop by and say thanks for supporting this podcast, and to introduce my new one- Mum As You Are. https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/mum-as-you-are/id1577282849 This new podcast is unpolished and unfancy.

*note* this is a very condensed version of my conversation with Bruce for those with short attention spans. It's an edited down version of a video so it will sound a little choppy.

The interview with my guest today took about a year to coordinate! This happens a lot on this podcast because babies get born, we get sick, there’s the whole parenting and home schooling in a pandemic thing. There are times when I feel like I can barely run a bath let alone run a podcast, so if you’re feeling frazzled, know you are not alone! If yo…

How we birth is a political statement. Birth trauma is a political issue because it’s a human rights issue. Imagine you’re pregnant and with kids and you’re sending your partner out for food or nappies and wondering if they’re going to be harassed, arrested or shot at? Imagine going to the hospital to birth your baby and being told that your pain i…
 
Let’s talk about flashbacks. When I saw midwife Kristy Watson’s ad for birth trauma research popping up on my social media feed I instantly had a flashbulb memory of being 20 and knee deep in my honours year of research. Truthfully, my memories of my honours year was that it was one of the most difficult years of my life. I was ever aware that I pr…
 
I’ve been really mindful about what messages I want to put out about overwhelm and anxiety. Now is not the time for adding more stuff. A distressed brain cannot learn or retain new information well. That’s true for adults and kids. Instead, work towards meeting basic needs each day with constants. Things that your great, great, great granny would h…
 
A few weeks ago I went to a 2 day Breath work workshop with Theo2awakening. I share my personal and professional insights into this technique.

Could you even count on one hand the people in your life who are willing to challenge your ego and call you out on your desire to just stay comfortable in your life?

Every time I post about maternal and infant mortality that’s happening for black birthing people and families I’m often met with some version of some passive aggressive response.

What do you think of when you hear the word ‘fistula?’For me, it was 2004 and I was 21 years old. I was watching the Oprah show on my lunch break and she was interviewing Dr Catherine Hamlin. The image I have I my mind when I think obstetric fistula is of terrified, very young African women. Who has laboured for days without any support and is then…
 
The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT or "tapping") has been around for a while. I learned it in my masters training 13 odd years ago, but then dismissed it. I allowed an old mentor to let me believe it was too "wu wu" and not scientific enough. Now that I've been working through some of my own old traumas and programming, I've come back to it. I li…

Now, one of my new favourite things to do on the podcast is interview a birth worker and then interview their mentor.

I love stories. This is why I do what I do, t…

You have no idea how excited I was to speak with Erika Cramer.

Breastfeeding trauma is often overlooked. It can represent a continuation of traumatic birth, come up as a new trauma in and of itself, or it can trigger previous abuse or unpleasant associations and memories with our own bodies. With my first baby I really struggled. I managed to exclusively pump, but after 6-7 months I’d had enough. With my secon…
 
Have you watched that documentary from Brene Brown on Netflix yet?
