    Episode 12 - Delivering The Birth You Want

    For the last episode of the MotherRucker podcast, I had the absolute delight of interviewing Georgia Allen and Sheridan Thomas the founders of MyMidwivesUK. They are blazing a trail through the birthing world as they campaign for equality for BAME birthing parents, fight systemic racism within our healthcare system and they absolutely advocate sling use too. Have a listen to these inspiring women and if you're in the Greater Manchester area you can book them to be your Midwives.

    Episode 10 - The Science of Carrying

    Episode 10 - The Science of Carrying

    My good friend Zoë Woodman joins me this week as she shares her amazing research into the Science of Carrying. With a degree in Psychology and her Carrying training, she is uniquely positioned to be able to draw links between the academic world (as more and more research is done on infant development) and the impact carrying has upon our young. We discuss brain plasticity, how to build happier brains, the anthropological evidence of how carrying is cemented in our ancestry, the impact carrying and close touch have upon Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and how carrying naturally leads to a more responsive parent and therefore deepens the bond between parent and child.

    I apologise for the sound quality in this episode, I realised at the end I'd knocked a dial on my mixer - I've tried to fix as best I can.
