    Understanding Your Birth Plan Options

    Understanding Your Birth Plan Options

    Why do women who’ve experienced a traumatic childbirth feel the need to share that experience, unsolicited, to a pregnant woman? That’s the last thing an expecting mama needs or wants to hear! Sometimes it’s hard to put up boundaries when you’re expecting, but this week’s guest had a few suggestions. Kerry Tuschhoff also discussed with Jill Devine the different birth plans available to expecting mamas, including hypnosis.
    Kerry is the Founder/Director of Hypnobabies®. Hypnobabies is a very successful 6 week, 3-hours per week, complete childbirth education course that was adapted with permission from Master Hypnotherapist Gerald Kein’s “Painless Childbirth Program” techniques (medical grade, somnambulistic hypnosis). This allows Hypnobabies students to enjoy “eyes-open childbirth hypnosis”, easily remaining deeply in hypnosis while walking, talking and changing positions; being as mobile as they would like to be during childbirth. Hypnobabies is well-known for helping people create much shorter, easier and more comfortable labors, making childbirth the joyful experience it was meant to be.

    A Community Designed To Help The Sandwich Generation

    A Community Designed To Help The Sandwich Generation

    Over the past five years, Mike and Kim Barnes found themselves navigating problems they never saw coming from their parents: Alzheimer's, pacemakers, COVID pneumonia, and the tough decision to move parents into retirement communities. They've learned to balance the many facets of parenting aging parents, including medical, financial, everyday-life decisions, emotional rollercoasters, protecting their parents from scams, and more, all while parenting their college-age kids, and building their careers. Mike & Kim each spent 30 years on TV. Kim's TV career includes 15 years as an award-winning reporter and news anchor and Mike's includes 29 years as an award-winning sportscaster.
    They've realized that so many adult children go through the same trials with their parents, yet hardly anyone talks about it. Most struggle in silence. That's why they created a community to provide information, resources, and support. In this week’s episode with Jill Devine, Mike and Kim discussed the Parenting Aging Parents community and provided some conversation starters to help with difficult topics that need to be discussed with aging parents.

    How Her Fertility Struggles Can Help You

    How Her Fertility Struggles Can Help You

    Victoria Nieveen RD, LDN, IFNCP joined Jill Devine on this week’s episode.
    Victoria’s Bio:
    I am a Functional Nutrition dietitian who specializes in women’s health. I graduated from Mizzou with my Bachelor's in Medical Dietetics, and currently a Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine Master's student at the University of Western States. Today, I help women with absent or irregular cycles nourish their bodies and balance their hormones, so that they can conceive. Unlike conventional protocols, I use a whole-body approach and faith-based coaching to help my clients reconnect with their bodies, regulate their cycles, and optimize their fertility. I use my experiences, both personally and professionally, to help women realize their story isn’t over yet. God has more in store for them. This means trusting their body again, cultivating a positive relationship with food, achieving their healthy hormone goals, and integrating all forms of wellness into their lives.
    Here are some additional notes from the conversation:

    108: Helping Parents Feel Less Helpless

    Rachel Bailey is a Parenting Specialist who has been serving families for more than 12 years. Besides being a mother of two, she also has master’s degree in Clinical Psychology, a certification in Positive Discipline, and has provided services as an ADHD Coach, in-home mentor, and therapist. Currently she provides parents with practical (long-lasting) tools for improving behavior, moods, and attitudes in their homes.  Jill Devine invited Rachel on the podcast to discuss how to foster resilience in children with big emotions. Almost every family has at least one child with big emotions (and some parents are raising several children with them!). No matter the stage of parenting you’re currently in, you will walk away from this episode feeling inspired and equipped to think about the act of parenting in a much simpler way that leads to less stress AND feeling less guilty, releasing your own “Yuck”, too.
    For more parenting tips from Rachel, you can check out her podcast, “Your Parenting Long Game”.

    Elemental Esthetics - Check out The Salt Room, which helps with: Asthma, Allergies, Acne, Rosacea and Inflammation, Eczema, and Psoriasis. Also, the Infrared Sauna is something to check out too! Infrared panels heat the room and the body to create the sauna effect. What’s cool with infrared is that it heats the body BEFORE it heats the room! Infrared saunas are not set as hot as traditional ones and are a more effective treatment.
