    Ep178: Preparing for Parenthood with Lindsay Garrett LCSW

    We talk a lot on this show about pregnancy and birth (of course!) but we don’t talk as much about what happens after that. That’s where today’s guest, Lindsay C. M. Garrett, LCSW comes in. An expert in the field of adoption, parent preparation, and child welfare, she has spent ten years supporting parents at The Gladney Center for Adoption.
    Her background may be in adoption but no matter how you choose to approach parenthood she’s got great practical advice that I know everyone can find useful. This episode can hopefully remind you that it’s ok to feel your feelings and reach out to your support system.
    In this Episode, You’ll Learn About: -How the challenges of adoption inspired Lindsay to focus her career on preparing parents to have children
    -Why it’s important to explore your fears leading up to parenthood
    -How establishing strong communication with your partner beforehand can help in coparenting later
    -What some specific strategies are for building a sustainable support system
    -What are some ideas for things you can ask for when you reach out for help
    -What it means to define your family’s mission statement and values

    Ep 177: How Age Affects Pregnancy

    Ep 177: How Age Affects Pregnancy

    I’ve talked about advanced reproductive age before but I realized I’d never devoted an entire episode to it. After having a lot of requests for this subject, I decided to cover it today. More and more people are opting to delay parenthood. However there seems to be a commonly accepted myth that the minute you turn 35 you can no longer expect to have a healthy baby or a vaginal birth.
    What defines a healthy age to get pregnant is on a spectrum. It depends on too many factors to list here so you’ll have to listen to the episode! The bottom line is that if you want to have a baby in your thirties, forties, or even fifties, you can likely expect positive outcomes!
    In this Episode, You’ll Learn About: -How common it is to get pregnant over the age of 35
    -Why some people are choosing to delay having children
    -How the advancing of age can correlate to higher rates of miscarriage
    -How age affects the prevalence of chromosomal abnormalities and congenital anomalies
    -How preexisting conditions, especially hypertension and diabetes, can affect the chances of these issues
    -What the effects are on morbidity and mortality
    -How pregnancy care differs according to age
    -How age affects rates of induction and c-section
    -How children can benefit from being raised by older parents
    -Why you should plan for your family’s future if you decide to get pregnant when you are older

    Ep176: Christina’s Birth Story - An Uncomplicated Pregnancy That Ended With Severe Preeclampsia and a C-Section

    This is really a great story of managing through a difficult and unexpected birth course. After a completely uneventful and easy pregnancy, around 37 weeks Christina felt like something just wasn’t right so she went to the hospital. She was subsequently diagnosed with something called HELLP syndrome, one of the most severe forms of preeclampsia. After being transferred to another hospital, she ultimately delivered via c-section and you are going to hear all about her experience today.
    In this Episode, You’ll Learn About: -How quickly and easily Christina and her husband got pregnant
    -What it was like for Christina to be pregnant and working in-person during the height of COVID
    -How staying active helped with her pregnancy symptoms
    -Why she took an interest in hypnobirthing and what she did to prepare
    -How she approached researching and getting ready for an unmedicated birth
    -What HELLP syndrome is and how it is managed
    -How Christina and her husband’s differing careers facilitate coparenting

    Ep174: What to Do If You Might Have a Big Baby

    Ep174: What to Do If You Might Have a Big Baby

    This episode is being brought to you by Bamboobies. Use the code “ALLABOUT” to get 40% of full price items through Oct 23.
    Today we’re talking about what happens if there is a suspicion that your baby is big. I originally did an episode about this back in 2019 but since then I’ve had so many people reach out and ask about this subject that I thought I should revisit it and update it.
    I think it’s coming up more often because more doctors seem to be doing routine third trimester ultrasounds which actually aren’t necessary. These ultrasounds aren’t great at identifying whether or not your baby will be large and can lead to unnecessary interventions down the road. In this episode, we’ll get into the indicators you actually want to pay attention to and the outcomes and treatments you should be aware of for a suspected big baby.
    In this Episode, You’ll Learn About: -How much does a baby have to weigh in order to be considered “big,” or having macrosomia
    -What factors can increase the risk of having a big baby
    -How macrosomia is diagnosed
    -How accurate (and necessary) ultrasound screening is in identifying baby size
    -Who should be getting screened
    -What kinds of complications can be caused by having a larger baby
    -How you can help yourself with some prevention strategies and management options

    Ep173: Lauren’s Birth Story - Perfect and Traumatic

    Ep173: Lauren’s Birth Story - Perfect and Traumatic

    This episode is being supported by Bamboobies. Check out their amazing reusable nursing pads at bamboobies.com.
    In this birth story episode, you’ll hear about Lauren and how she got both everything she wanted for her birth AND everything she didn’t want. After a beautiful birth that went smoothly, Lauren experienced a rare obstetric emergency called uterine inversion where the uterus turns inside out after birth. She lost a lot of blood and had to be rushed to the OR. Fortunately the repair went well and today she’s feeling grateful that the medical staff was able to save her life.
    Now I’m going to be honest, sometimes I worry about sharing these rarer incidents because I don’t want to scare you or for you to think that I’m choosing more “sensational” stories. But then I remember that I am here to share the truth of pregnancy, share the truth of birth. Knowledge is power and you need to know what the possibilities are. Not because you can control the outcomes but because being prepared can make scary situations less overwhelming.
    In this Episode, You’ll Learn About: -Why you shouldn’t let a low pain tolerance stop you from trying for an unmedicated birth; you don’t know what you can do
    -How Lauren approached her birth wishes with flexibility
    -Why she chose to have a doula and how it affected her birthing experience
    -What an inverted uterus is and how it is repaired
    -What makes an inverted uterus so dangerous
    -What it was like for Lauren to recover from such a traumatic birth
