    Regret

    Regret

    In this episode we address that uncomfortable emotion, Regret.


    Regret's never a pleasant feeling but is it purely a negative, useless emotion? We get into the nitty-gritty or what causes it, how it affects us and what we can do about it.

    Instinct

    Instinct

    This week Hollie and Illy address that often ignored resource within us – Intuition. What is it? And why we ignore it at our peril!


    Unfortunately the ideas of 'trusting your instincts' is something that lots of us are uncomfortable with, mistrusting of, embarrassed to admit to even. Why is that?


    Growing a baby, birthing a baby and nurturing a baby are all instinctive processes to a large degree but there are so many barriers to that instinctive process.


    All of this is unpicked and of course Illy and Hollie discuss ways of practicing exercising your instincts.

Fantastic and thought provoking

This all started with me thinking what the he’ll is hypnobirthing and getting referred to Hollie. I then read the book, followed on Insta and then this podcast. I find it so interesting and love listening to the honest open communication you guys have. Also feel like I’m learning about issues which have always bothered me but I’ve never known the correct way to learn about them and Illy is really helping in that respect. Keep up the great work guys.

Amazing honest conversation

Two of my absolute favourite people to follow on Instagram. I feel like they have the conversations here that we would like to have with our friends about birth/ choices/ life in general. Really though provoking.
