    25. Almarie Guerra // Pop a Squat, Have a Baby

    25. Almarie Guerra // Pop a Squat, Have a Baby

    Pregnant Ivette and Almarie drink tea lattes from Coffee Bean. Almarie is an actor/dancer/story pirate/clown/mother who actually loved being pregnant. They discuss the pros and cons of waiting 12 weeks to tell others you’re expecting, and talk about miscarrying, a home water birth that didn’t go as planned, baby wrapping, and elimination communication. (That’s when your baby poops in the potty before they can even walk.) www.imtheonepushing.com

    24. Ivette García Dávila // Getting Drunk with Trina

    Ivette drinks up the rest of the Quarter Acre Merlot blend from New Zealand with one of her BFFs Trina Jacobsen. They talk breastfeeding woes, birth plans vs. intentions, and how growing a baby in your own womb doesn’t necessarily make you a mother no matter what the dictionary says. All moms are pushers -- the title of this podcast (and book) is not to be taken literally.

    Ivette drinks up a well-rounded Quarter Acre Merlot blend from New Zealand with medical professional/toxin connoisseur/mother Kim Ely. We delve deep into the blue sea of toxins, discuss favorite clean brands, sort through my shameful drawer of products, and air out our dirty toxic secrets. True to form, we also talk about her epic four-day long labor, work/life balance, and all the many sanitary napkin alternatives out in the market.

    22. Foster Wilson // Terminating Late Term

    Ivette has a complex wine and conversation with actor/director/mother Foster Wilson. We discuss controversial topics such as terminating a late-term pregnancy for medical reasons, vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC), vaccines, and less at-issue but still interesting subjects such as hauling your baby from audition to set, to film festivals, and juggling the Hollywood life with two kiddos.

Good conversation over a drink

I really enjoy the conversational style of this podcast which features the host, Ivette, chatting with an interesting mom about their birth story and more over a bottle of wine. Of course, I always feel like I want a glass of wine after listening...which is good and bad. :)
