    EP136- How to Plan for the Five Essential Changes Postpartum

    As the founder of Postpartum Together, today Chelsea Skaggs will share several takeaways that we can learn from her experiences with pregnancy, relationships during and after baby, the reality of postpartum, and the different postpartum preparations that women need. If she looks back at all the choices she made and spent time and effort on, present Chelsea would tell her past-pregnant-self to “trust yourself more.” The time she spent on Google and YouTube looking for answers, she believes, was better off spent listening to her intuition more as a woman and a mother –a tip she leaves for all the mothers-to-be out there.

    EP135- Glucose Testing, Gestational Diabetes & Blood Sugar, OH MY! with Katie Dewhurst

    EP135- Glucose Testing, Gestational Diabetes & Blood Sugar, OH MY! with Katie Dewhurst

    Rarely do we think about managing our blood sugar unless our doctor tells us there is a problem. However, when we are pregnant, we have to get the glucose test to check for gestational diabetes and all of a sudden stress and anxiety sets in.

    What if we don't pass the test, what does it mean? How can we make changes now? What should we do on the day of our glucose test?

    Today’s guest, Katie Dewhurst struggled herself with her health and nutrition and ended up discovering that by balancing her blood sugar, she felt better than ever. She is now a Functional Medicine, Health Coach Nutritionist, and the Founder of Hello Balance, a digital resource and a cookbook. With her guidance today, we will feel more calm going into our pregnancy and taking that glucose test, knowing that we've already taken the steps to regulate our blood sugar.

    ***ALSO be sure to listen to the end of the episode and check out the GIVEAWAY on Instagram! Entries close on October 7th!!!

    EP134- How to Prevent Our Newborns from Falling During Skin to Skin with Founders Hayley & Sarah, in collaboration with Joovy

    EP134- How to Prevent Our Newborns from Falling During Skin to Skin with Founders Hayley & Sarah, in collaboration with Joovy

    When you’re laying in bed postpartum with your newborn on your chest, maybe practicing skin to skin, you never expect that little infant to wiggle off you and fall. This traumatic moment became a reality for one of today's guests, Hayley Mullins, two weeks postpartum. 

    This week is Newborn Falls Awareness Week and it’s important for us to realize that newborn falls are much more common than we hear about. Hayley was so empowered to make a change, after having trouble finding a product that would work, that she created a prototype in 3 weeks, which is now called the Joeyband for clinical use and the RooLoop for retail. Hayley and her co-founder, Sarah-Almaza Cox are on the show today to share what can we do to protect our baby from falling postpartum? What is skin to skin? What are the benefits? …and so much more! 

    Hayley & Sarah, along with their third co-founder Ashley, have collaborated with the company, Joovy, a global leader in premium products for babies and young children, that is passionate about solving problems and supporting families in order to bring this product into hospitals, as well as into your hands.

    EP133- How to Navigate Grief & Loss During a Pregnancy or Birth with Jessica Patoka

    What if we experience loss or grief during our pregnancy or around our birth? We envision the birth of our baby to be a joyous, beautiful, celebratory time. However, if loss or grief comes up around the same time, how do we navigate polar opposite emotions at the same time?

    For today’s guest, Jessica Patoka, the loss of one life and the birth of another are celebrated the same time every year and it’s impossible to know how she overcame such polarity of emotion at the same time. She shares with us the tools that keep her grounded and how she practiced presence during such a challenging time. By hearing Jessica’s story, we will find comfort knowing that we can experience loss and grief at the same time of great joy and discover solid ground again. We will learn the importance of taking care of ourselves throughout motherhood.

     

    Learn how to overcome grief and loss during a time of great joy in this episode of the Mamas in Training Podcast.

As a mama in training

I find this podcast so comforting and educational! Jessica is genuinely curious and asks great questions! She has such a calming voice that it’s a really treat to listen to

So grateful for Jessica.

This is my first pregnancy and I am a nervous little thing. 🤣
Not only have the podcasts been helpful but I’m now in the Facebook group and already find the women there to be supportive. It’s awesome to have a safe place to ask questions since it’s still too early for me to tell my friends and family.
