    Ep. 51 HUGS: Jenny and Liz Catch up

    Coming at you from the depths of quarantine when we’ve never needed a hug more. Full disclosure, this shit is hard and self-isolation is not always easy-going fun, lounging in your sweats. We are here for all of the parents and parents-to-be (Liz is still pregnant!) who are living Groundhog’s Day for 5 weeks now without a break. Frustration has peaked, the nerves are getting shot, and when you cannot leave your house, it is harder to feel like you have had a break (mental or physical) and reset your energy.

    In this Episode

    Forgive yourself, keep the humor going, take small steps in the best direction you can see today.

    Also, addressing your fears in these moments without giving those fears too much of your energy.

    Share with us your "when quarantine is over" dreams!

    There's also the task of building a virtual birth support team for mamas to be like Liz.

    Ep. 50 Redefining Postpartum Care

    What does postpartum care look like for you? For many people, after birth there are two doctor appointments and maybe a meal train. But at six weeks postpartum suddenly you're on your own and expected to be back to "normal." In this episode of the Beyond Birth Podcast, Dr. Angela Potter highlights why these expectations are problematic and how she is redefining postpartum care.

    In this episode:


    I just had a baby... what just happened and where do I go from here?
    Why pelvic floor therapy benefits every postpartum birth, regardless of how you delivered.
    Specific things a postpartum person can do to support healing pelvic floor and overall health.
    Yoni Steaming: what is it, why it's beneficial and how to treat yo'self at home!
    Physical and emotional components of pelvic floor therapy.
    Redefining postpartum care means
    Things to consider when planning for postpartum.
    There is no timeline on postpartum healing.
    How to create a restful environment.

    Ep. 49: Inducing Lactation and Inclusive Feeding for All Families

    Ep. 49: Inducing Lactation and Inclusive Feeding for All Families

    Feeding our babies, whether we do this through chest/breastfeeding or supplementing can be incredibly stressful. It’s often treated as a black and white issue, rather than an inclusive conversation around different types of feeding, parents and family dynamics. Did you know that every body can make milk? True story! In today's episode, Sarah Fuller, of Opus Lactation, shares about inducing lactation and her work helping families create an individualized plan to cultivate a bonded, healthy feeding relationship. 

    In this Episode:


    When feeding your baby doesn’t feel magical or  intuitive.
    Sarah’s personal experience with nursing and becoming an IBCLC
    Is pain and latching normal?
    What is inducing lactation?

    Every body can lactate. Mind blown? 


    Inducing lactation tricks your body into making milk, even if you haven’t given birth. How does this work?
    Navigating adoption and inducing lactation
    What to expect emotionally and physically through inducing lactation
    How to support your supply and the importance of individualized support.
    Fenugreek may not be all it’s cracked up to be.
    Every body can make milk— let’s clarify that.
    Education and breastfeeding success.
    The Parent Trip! Now a virtual event to support you from pregnancy, birth, postpartum and beyond. Bringing the village back to parents.
    How do you manage an overactive or low supply?
    Lactation Cookies--- helpful or just delicious or both? 
    Postpartum body expectations 
    The three things that make you feel like you everyday. 

    About Sarah & Opus Lactation

    Sarah is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and the founder of Opus Lactation. Her passions in lactation begin with early education and latching support. It then dives all the way in to oral anatomy and inducing lactation in situations outside of the ”birth parent to nursing” journey. Sarah thrives on creating individualized plans to help each family feed their baby in a way that works best for them.

    Sarah recognizes that each family has a different dynamic. She strives to help you discover the best way to feed your baby in your family.  Inclusivity is imperative. She works to help you trust and love your body where it is and for all of the magic it is. All parents can experience intimate and healthy feeding relationship with their babies through breastfeeding, chest-feeding, supplemental nursing systems, bottles and more

Down to earth and REAL

What I appreciate most about Liz and Jenny is their ability to keep it real! They’re two humans, sharing, listening and learning along with all of us listeners out here, too. The guests they interview have helped me explore subjects I probably never would have gone deeper on in my day to day life!! I love that so much—this podcast is a gem.
