Episode 189: Birth Trauma for Dads

Episode 185: Grab Bag
Join the Conversation as Ryan eases back into the Maternally Yours fold with a grab bag of topics and guests. She and Dana will wade through a pile of recent birthy headlines and discuss several maternal health related happenings.
Episode 186: Thinking Globally, Acting Locally
Dana and Ryan welcomed Dr. Washington Hill to the show. Prior to his work in Rwanda teaching obstetric and nursing students, Dr. Hill served as President and Chief of the Medical Staff at Sarasota Memorial Hospital, as well as Chairman of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Medical Director of Labor and Delivery. He was also an active member of the Healthy Start Coalition Volunteer Executive Board, championing the important role that Healthy Start plays in providing a strong continuum of care for pregnant women, babies, and families in Sarasota County. Dr. Hill spoke to us about his work in Rwanda and offered some insight into global and local solutions in maternal and infant health.
Next up, we spoke to Healthy Start Coalition of Sarasota County Executive Director Shon Ewens and Marketing and Grants Coordinator Ciera Coleman about the second annual Giving Sarasota a Healthy Start luncheon. This year’s theme was “Thinking Globally, Acting Locally”. Dr. Hill was the keynote speaker of the event.
Episode 182: Kids in Nature
Join the Conversation as we talk about how to encourage your children to connect with nature and spark the interest in conservation. Our guests are Dr. Reed Noss, conservation biologist and ecologist and Dr. Scott D. Sampson, paleontologist and passionate science communicator.
Correspondent Farah Diaz-Tello joined us to talk about two important court cases in the news: Purvi Patel's feticide conviction and Young v. UPS.
For tonight's episode "Hot Mamas," Abby and Dana were joined by two mamas from Black Diamond Burlesque, Laura Daniel Gale and performer Cherry Von Topp. Laura Daniel Gale is owner and producer of this troupe, which has been performing to sold-out audiences since they first hit the stage in 2010. She is also mother to a 20-year-old son. Cherry Von Topp is mother to three fabulous kids ages 5, 7, and 8. We talked about one word that may not be used often to refer to motherhood: "sexy." These mothers talked about how to still feel sexy after pregnancy, and how to balance certain "ideals" of motherhood with personal confidence. Being a positive role model for your children does not have to be mutually exclusive from feeling like a hot mama!
Couldn't be better!
These ladies put their hearts and souls into the episodes. They provide sorely needed information, with conversations that no one else is having.
Enlightening, inspiring, and motivating. Thank you for the facts.
