    55. Adverse Childhood Experiences & Our Parenting with Candace St. John

    55. Adverse Childhood Experiences & Our Parenting with Candace St. John

    How parents use behavioral interventions on children is often rooted in the fact that many don't want to face their own shit. 

    This week on the show I have Candace St. John, a Public Health Practitioner & Pediatric Sleep Specialist who, after the birth of her own child in June 2020, she was floored by the amount of unsubstantiated evidence that most mainstream parenting techniques and ideologies are built upon. She has made it her mission to not only break down the myths and misinformation that run rampant in the social media world as shared by so many “experts”, but to also help us understand that it really is okay to use both science AND your intuition when it comes to parenting decisions.

    Today I talked with Candace about:


    How we as parents can better support our kids through working to heal our own trauma
    What ACEs (alders childhood experiences) are and how they shape EVERYTHING in our lives
    Why evidence based information is lacking in both the health care sector and in many popular parenting resources and how this is adding unnecessary pressure and expectation on both the caregiver and child.

    50. Celebrating 1 Year of the Podcast! Today, I Share About Being 32 Weeks Pregnant at Age 41 + Why Matrescence Matters

    50. Celebrating 1 Year of the Podcast! Today, I Share About Being 32 Weeks Pregnant at Age 41 + Why Matrescence Matters

    Celebrating 1 year of Episodes!

    As a busy working mama (of almost 2), I am humbled and grateful to have the capacity, time, space and support to do what I love - which is being in service.

    Fertile at 40 Podcast has been an evolution over the last 49 episodes; what was once simply a space to share the wisdom of healers and the tools I have learned from over the years as I healed from an eating disorder, addiction, sexual trauma and more; has become a space to get raw and real about fertility, pregnancy loss, and what peaceful parenting is truly all about.

    All with a plant medicine inspired spin.

    This platform is such a gift for myself - a space for me to share what I want, how I want to; but also it has become a safe place for others to speak their truths, heal through vulnerable sharing, and feel the support of others on this same path into and through Matrescence.

    Today I riff a bit on some things that are potent for me right now; including:


    My 32 weeks at age 41 pregnancy update
    What "The New Mama Codes" are about
    And how I am ready to support you more through my special community launching in June!

Bold, Brave and Authentic!!

Meg holds no punches in delivering the honest and sometimes jarring truth of how she has faced and overcome some major challenges in her life. Her raw, authentic and charming approach to difficult subject matter is both refreshing and much needed in today’s world of illusory and manicured online perfection. I look forward to watch this podcast grow and help change many lives!!
