    Jo Bealey on Post-partum care

    Jo Bealey on Post-partum care

    Post -partum care for Mums is so vital, but can more often than not be overlooked or cut short. This week, we're focussing on care after baby and the help out there. Jo Bealey is a post-partum doula and wellbeing coach and joins Anna on this week's podcast.


    Jo and Anna talk about why Jo wanted to go into this area of work, feeling lost after giving birth in a remote aboriginal community, the notion of a village raising a child, breastfeeding, having a v-back, her process of working with mums, being a sounding board, relationship struggles after birth and raising awareness of the people out there to help you once the baby arrives.


    Jo has also recently decided to put her wealth of knowledge into training post-partum doulas, teaching how to support new mums and their mental health. If you're interested do get in touch with her!

    Jo Bowis on Expressing Herself

    Jo Bowis on Expressing Herself

    This week on Breaking Mum and Dad, we have a lady who is not afraid to express herself. Literally.


    After a great pregnancy, actress and singer Jo Bowis went through a pretty traumatic birth which was followed by the disappointment of not being able to breastfeed exclusively. But, she soldiered on breast-pumping, and decided to document her expressing journey through pictures. She now has a book out about that journey, 'Express Yourself. A Mamoir', and an exhibition showing these photographs.


    Jo talks Anna through her labour, traumatic birth, thinking her birth was normal, the feeling of seeing her son for the first time, her lack of milk, the importance of getting her baby to latch, feeling judged for not breastfeeding her baby, internal pressures, sharing her pumping with the worlan d getting sent unsolicited dick pics.

    Siobhan Miller on her Positive Birthing Stories

    Siobhan Miller on her Positive Birthing Stories

    On Breaking Mum and Dad this week we have a lady who wishes she could go back and experience her positive births again. How many of us can say that eh?


    After a not-so-great birth to her first child at 21, and the year of post-natal anxiety that followed, Siobhan Miller didn't want a repeat for her second child, and found hypnobirthing. She now runs the Positive Birth Company, initially fostering a group of women in the community to support women, and now running hypnobirthing classes around the country.


    Siobhan talks to Anna about her first birth, stretch and sweeps, waking up every 20 minutes to check that her baby was still breathing, the single mum-young mum stigma, finding hypnobirthing, the euphoria that followed her home birth to her second and getting pregnant 6 months later.
