    Ep: 41 - Lets talk about Sex in pregnancy & Postpartum

    We love this topic, its definitely not one that many pregnant women discuss and yet its so important as this was how we created our babies in the first place.. plus the discussion about after birth..

    Let's meet Karlyn, The Erotic alchemist

    Ep:40 - Women’s Mysteries & Rites Of Passage with Jane Hardwicke Collings

    Ep:40 - Women’s Mysteries & Rites Of Passage with Jane Hardwicke Collings

    We are so grateful to be able to share this special interview with Jane Hardwicke Collings - A Women’s Mysteries Teacher, Women-crafter, a Mother, Grandmother, Former Midwife, A Writer, Teacher, Workshop Facilitator.

    Jane is a former Registered Nurse, and worked in that capacity in Paediatric Intensive Care Units and Women’s Operating Theatres.

    Jane became a midwife at 26 and left the hospital system so as not to be complicit with institutionalised acts of abuse and violence on women and babies masquerading as safety.

    Jane ‘grew up’ in the home-birth world and was a home-birth midwife for 30 years in the city and then rural areas.

    Her own births have taught her who she is and what she is capable of.

    Jane travels to give workshops on the wisdom of the cycles and the spiritual practice of menstruation; preparation for menstruation for mothers and daughters; and the sacred and shamanic dimensions of pregnancy, birth, mothering and menopause; and how to reclaim and heal our rites of passage. Jane also offers teacher training for these. Jane speaks at conferences and festivals and offers her books and e-courses to help heal the wounded feminine and wounded masculine of our patriarchal culture.

    Jane is on a mission and is committed to working to help heal birth through helping mothers be more informed about how the system works and their rights, to heal traumatic birth experiences, to help birth workers be more aware of their impact on babies, mothers and fathers, to help heal menstruation by encouraging conscious rites of passage at menarche (first period) and helping women remember the importance of being connected to their body and their menstrual cycle, to banish menstrual shame and co-create a positive menstrual culture, and to reclaim menopause from medicine and help women harness the transformation powers of menopause.

    Basically to reclaim feminine knowledge, wisdom and power through reconnection with the women’s mysteries.

    Sit back and enjoy every moment of Jane’s Wisdom.

    Ep:39 - It's time to dump the 'Birth Plan' and create a 'Birth Map' instead

    Ep:39 - It's time to dump the 'Birth Plan' and create a 'Birth Map' instead

    Can we be honest with you??? We hate the term 'BIRTH PLAN'!! you are probably thinking What? Why??

    Because when we put one 'Plan' on one experience then we put a lot of expectation on ourselves and when things don't 'go to plan' then we can come out of our birth feeling disappointed and even traumatised.

    We both work with women through pregnancy to help them prepare for all kinds of births and so when we met Catherine Bell and did her 'Birth Cartography - Birth Mapping' workshop we felt this was the answer that we were looking for in helping you all prepare for birth and any possible detours that came up.

    Catherine Bell is The Birth Cartographer and author of The Birth Map: boldly going where no birth plan has gone before.  She created the concept of Birth Maps to facilitate communication and aid confident navigation of the maternity landscape.    After her second child was born, she trained as a doula and breastfeeding educator, as much to learn about Mothering as to be able to support others.  This led to becoming a birth advocate and consumer representative, with a keen focus on communication and the undertaking of a PhD.

    Ep: 38 It's time to slow down and connect in with your body & baby

    Ep: 38 It's time to slow down and connect in with your body & baby

    We live such busy lives that even in pregnancy we don't tend to take the time to slow down and connect into what our body and our baby needs.

    Many women keep busy to get out of their heads but then in turn this can cause more stress and anxiety as we are pushing down our emotions and not dealing with the fears we feel in the lead up to our birth.

    In this episode, Nicola Laye and Shari Lyon have a chat about how to take time to slow down in the weeks leading up to birth.

    If you would like to learn more about the physiology of birth and your options join Shari's brand new online program called 'The Journey to Birth' online course CLICK HERE to purchase this course now for the special price of only $97 AUD

    If you would like to work with Nicola through pregnancy or to overcome anxiety through pregnancy you can contact her on info@nicolalaye.com and stay tuned for Nicola's new pregnancy program that she will soon be releasing.

Incredible & ScHelpful

This podcast could not have come at a better time. Such honest and open conversations. As a new mum-to-be I’ve found each episode to hold valuable information and insights into the daily life, challenges, celebrations and learnings of mother hood.

Blessed to have these women!

I’m so grateful that we have women like Nicola and Shari working with pregnant and birthing women. Such a wealth of personal and professional experience. I’m really grateful they are sharing this info as it’s incredibly relevant for women and mother’s. Thank you ladies. Great podcast!

Science-based information you can trust

I wish these podcasts had been available when I was pregnant with my first baby. What is so brilliant about Nurture Hub is that it's sharing science-based information. Pregnant ladies can learn how their bodies work and how to achieve the birth they want (however that looks). These podcasts fill the knowledge gap as midwives and doctors fail to tell us so much vital information we need for an optimal birth outcome. Shari and Nicola are two beautiful voices of truth that women can trust. Love this so much!
