Podcast 010 | First Aid For Children
My conversation with paramedic Theo Mallos will help you feel confident about what you need to know about emergencies and what you can do at home to keep your child(ren) safe. Do you know what to do if your child is showing signs of feeling unwell? Do you wonder when you should call emergency? Do you know what to do while you wait for the ambulance in the event of an emergency? Getting familiar with and confident about risks and emergencies when you start a family will help you to make sound decisions to ensure your family's safety.
Podcast 009 | The New Way To Support Your Child's Teeth and Oral Health Naturally
My conversation with dentist Dr Steven Lin unlocks ancient knowledge that easily can be used by every household to ensure your child’s optimal jaw and teeth development and long-term oral health. This is something you can start from the first year of your baby’s life. It is everyone's nightmare to have to spend thousands of dollars on braces and dentist bills - not only expensive but also uncomfortable. The solution is in your food, by eating the foods that are required for the development of the bones you can prevent a lot of tooth-ache further down the track. Listen to Dr Steven Lin's expertise and be excited about how much you can actually do to give your child a great start in life with strong and beautiful teeth.
Podcast 008 | How To Deal With Toddler Tantrums
I have Helena Mooney back on the podcast to talk about toddler tantrums and how aware parenting techniques can help us build a stronger connection with our child and support them in their developmental expression. We discuss tips and ideas on how to act during a tantrum, reasons why they appear and how you can predict them, as well as why children get tantrums and how it’s good for their development. These core steps help us be more empathic with our own needs and feelings when parenting is challenging but it also helps us support our child and leads the way for easier parenting, stronger connections and less tantrums.

A podcast that rocks my heart strings!
Annamaria has a way of nailing topics that touch the essence of what being a conscious parent is all about. Her holistic view in health and parenting is inspiring and encourages you to think out of the box and challenge mainstream views that don’t necessarily work for everyone.
The health and nutritional info she provides is gold and her understanding of the deep feminine makes my heart sing!
Recommended for all mums and women of this planet!
I've listened to your first two episodes and I truly enjoyed both. Love your voice and style - inspiring and engaging.
As a new mum, I’ve found there is so much information out there to wade though.
Anna- Maria and Nadine’s conversation in episode one of Mumspire is honest and inspiring and I really identified with their views on the topics discussed. It made me reflect on and unpack my own experience of giving birth and raised questions I feel are important to explore. These woman are down to earth, and have such a reverence for the birthing process and respect for women and what we are capable of. The Content is both refreshing and accessible and I can’t wait for more episodes. Thank you!
