My name is Sarah Trott. I'm a new mama to a vivacious baby girl and this podcast is all about postpartum care for the few months following birth, the time period also known as the Fourth Trimester. My postpartum doula, Esther Gallagher, is my co-host. She’s a mother, grandmother, perinatal educator, birth and postpartum care provider. I've benefitted hugely from her support. All parents can benefit from the wisdom and support that a postpartum Doula provides. Fourth trimester care is about the practical, emotional and social support parents and baby require, and importantly, helps set the tone for the lifelong journey of parenting. This podcast provides resources for new parents and examines the socio-cultural influences on parenting.
When I first became pregnant, I had never heard of postpartum Doulas, let alone knew what they did. So much of the training and preparation that expecting parents do is focused on the birth and newborn care. Once baby is born, often the first interaction parents have with medical or child professionals, other than the first pediatrician visits, is the six-week checkup with the OB/GYN. What about caring for mama and family between the birth and the six week doctor visit? What are the strategies for taking care of the partner and the rest of the family while looking after your newborn?
Our podcasts contain expert interviews with specialists from many fields to cover topics including postpartum doula practices, prenatal care, prenatal and postnatal yoga, parenting, breastfeeding, physical recovery from birth, nutrition, newborn care, midwifery, negotiating family visitation, and many more.
First-hand experience is shared through lots of stories from both new and seasoned parents. Hear what other parents are asking and what they have done in their own lives.
We reference other podcasts, internet resources and real-life experts who can help you on your own parenting journey. Visit our site at http://sarahroselinda.typepad.com/fourth_trimester_podcast
We hope you have a well-resourced and enjoyable experience as new parents.

Great for everyone

This podcast covers so many topics... I enjoyed each one.

Not a fan

Oh how I wanted to like this podcast. In theory it’s exactly what I’m looking for as I’m in the third trimester. But after listening to a few episodes I just can’t listen to any more. The microphone having a persistent echo is distracting. The doula host speaks too slowly and it takes her 5 minutes to say something that I can easily talk about in 30 seconds. There’s way too much focus on on feelings and emotions and not enough on facts and expectations. All in all a swing and a miss for this FTM.

Klsggggggg ,

please get better microphones!

the content of this podcast is great, but unfortunately the audio quality is almost unlistenable :(
