44. The fourth trimester, with Bec Abraham
In this episode I interview Bec Abraham.
Bec runs the instagram account @belliesandbeyond
She is a mum of 4 little girls and lives in Bondi.
We discuss what the fourth trimester is REALLY like. With special emphasis on how to manage that newborn time when you also have older children to tend to.
Bec honestly lets us in on her daily internal struggle of breastfeeding and what she is doing that is working for her. Bec wondered if she would breastfeed this time around but here she is taking it day by day and looking at the journey holistically.
We both discuss what we would have done DIFFERENTLY in those early days with our first children....
43. Breastfeeding education - a new system that actually works!
In this episode Susie discusses the current breastfeeding education that is mainstream in Australia - and why it is failing new mums. Our breastfeeding statistics are not rising!!!

42. How learning to breastfeed looks after a caesarean section, with Beth Ryan
In this episode I had the privilege of chatting with Beth Ryan from Birth with Beth. Beth is an experienced Registered Midwife and birth educator in Melbourne and has spent many hospital shifts helping women who have just had a caesarean section learn to breastfeed.
We often imagine skin to skin and those first few days of newborn bubble after a vaginal birth - however it can look quite different after a caesarean section.
Beth takes a through what this will look like for you and lots of tips and tricks on succeeding with your breastfeeding journey!
