    I don’t know about you, but when I was pregnant I knew NOTHING about why pelvic floor was important, how to work it or why it was important. Luckily Expecting and Empowered reached out to me to try out their pregnancy and postpartum guides and probably saved me a lot of problems. I have one of the hilarious co-founders Krystle, a Women’s Health PT, on today to answer all of our questions about why it’s important and what to do about it!

    It’s kind of insane how much our mood fluctuates during pregnancy and postpartum. Some of us just ride the wave, and others seek out help with therapy, journaling, mediation, medication, exercise or ANYTHING that helps us to feel ourselves again.
    Cameron (@freckeledfoodie) is an open book about her mental health journey which is EXACTLY why I wanted to chat mental health in pregnancy and postpartum with her.
    She was a breath of fresh air who openly chatted about meditation, therapy, medication and let me ask questions I don’t feel comfortable asking most people like “At what point do you need to go on medication?”. I hope this episode gives you the confidence to get help however that best looks for you!

    In the instagram culture that we live in now, people think they need to quit their job, sell all of their things and buy a van to be able to travel. Also, people love to tell new parents to “do it now before you can’t”. Well Travel Writers Lindsey and Cole Ranzau took that on as a personal challenge to continue traveling and adventuring around Minnesota (and the world) even… ESPECIALLY after their daughter was born.
    Lindsey and Cole open up with me to share their mindset on getting outside and JUST DOING IT! 
    We hope this leaves you inspired to gather up the energy and get going with your little one!

    Unless you have a planned c-section, that option may not be one that you heavily consider when you think about how your birth will play out.  Many women come out of c-section a little stunned and wondering what just happened (and what to do now). Not Liz! Liz felt empowered by her emergency c-section. Knowing that that isn’t the norm for many women I wanted to interview her so we could hear her story of a long labor and eventually an empowering birth.  Liz also chatted with me about body image postpartum and putting in the work to FEELING better, however that looks for you.

    Expect THESE emotions (&hormones) in pregnancy, postpartum and weaning with Dr. Carrie Jones

    There is SO MUCH we didn’t learn about our own bodies. Most of us have NO CLUE what goes on in the body when we ovulate, have our period, get pregnant. So when our mood (and labido) tank postpartum we don’t know 1. That it wont last forever and 2. That is totally NORMAL. 

    I had to have Dr. Carrie Jones, a friend, guru and functional medicine and women’s health/hormone doctor on to tell us all exactly what happens inside our bodies. This is the information we needed going into pregnancy and postpartum (and for me when I weaned) so we knew our crazy was… well normal crazy. That being said, it may be normal but that doesn’t make it any less horrible and we FULLY SUPPORT  talk therapy and medication to help you feel back to yourself!

Long time listener!

I have followed the YouTube channel for several years now, and even though I am not even in a relationship, let alone a mother yet, I love the thoughts and advice!

Sarapandaa ,

So relatable - love her videos & NOW podcast!

I found Hey Shayla when I was pregnant with my first this past year. I loved how fast she talked, got straight to the point and was so relatable and goofy! I’m so pumped that she now has a podcast and we can hear from her and the people she’s learned from throughout this motherhood journey. Her content is a goldmine for helpful tips and tricks and I love her philosophy that whatever works for YOU and your baby is what you should do...no judgement. I highly recommend this podcast just as much as I recommend her videos to my friends! (I do miss seeing her goofy faces but I can picture them in my head while listening to her 😂)

HappyPeaceful ,

Love love LOVE Shayla!

This podcast is exactly what I’ve been looking for. As a new mom, I find myself asking A LOT of questions! Shayla’s personality and content is so refreshing because she isn’t pretending. She is the REAL DEAL and I can sooo relate. We do a lot of “crunchy” things ourselves and so I love that I am learning what other parents are doing out there, as well. Thank you for starting this podcast! I love your YouTube channel, but this is also so convenient to listen to while I’m on the go! You rock!
