    E61. Sex in pregnancy and after giving birth with April Davis

    E61. Sex in pregnancy and after giving birth with April Davis

    We are going there! We are talking about sex during pregnancy and after you have had a baby. One of those subjects you may not want to talk with your mum or friends about but fear not because here on my podcast we love diving into taboo subjects and making sure no stone is left unturned.

    Sex is a topic that often makes us blush or shy away from discussion, but I am not sure anything could make this week’s guest blush, as a sex educator April Davis spends her days writing about vaginas.

    On Instagram as @thevaginablog April openly discusses all the things you want to ask but are too shy to. April describes herself as the reason you slightly tilt your phone away from others when you're scrolling and that is the exact reason, she is the perfect guest to join us today.

    I am very grateful that April is taking time out from blogging at thevaginblog.com and swapping seats from hosting her own podcast to join me here today to share why talking about sex and vaginas need not make you blush.

    This week marks the beginning of Child Safety Week which is run by the Child Accident Prevention Trust. Here at Fred Safety, we are passionate about helping every parent protect their child at home by making all of our products simple to fit and designed for maximum safety. We believe that most accidents that happen at home are preventable. Did you know that half of under 5s will attend A&E this year and more than 75% of under 5s that suffer a fatal injury from an accident, do so at home? These statistics are frightening, and we want this to stop, Fred Safety products are designed with your home and family in mind and we pride ourselves on being fully compliant with EU regulations. As we know here at Fred Safety, sharing safety knowledge and having a safe home for your little ones helps saves lives!

    E58. For the Dad’s- Supporting your partner in the postpartum with Adam Shaw

    For the Dad’s- Supporting your partner in the postpartum.

    With Adam Shaw

    This is one for the dads out there! Your little one arrives, and life becomes beautifully crazy. Your partner is navigating pregnancy and birth recovery, establishing infant feeding and paternity leave is typically much too short. But how can you optimise the time available to you and support your partner whilst making memories and bonding with your little on in the postpartum.

    On this week’s episode I am joined by Adam Shaw, perhaps better known on Instagram as @at_dads_table. As a dad of 2, with a 3rd baby on the way Adam has definitely had experience in this field and is joining me to share his postpartum support tips and tricks today.

    And, of course, as a trained chef Adam’s book sharing meals suited to each stage of pregnancy and the postpartum is your go-to family food bible.

    E57. How to mother with mindfulness With Izzy Judd

    E57. How to mother with mindfulness With Izzy Judd

    Motherhood is the most beautiful, chaotic whirlwind. Some days you feel on top of the world and like you are smashing it and other days feel like they are a month long and full of relentless hurdles. We wouldn’t change it for the world, but that doesn’t mean that it is easy, so how can we mother in a more mindful way to make those rollercoaster days a little easier on us and the whole family?

    This week I am so excited to chat to Izzy Judd, who as a mum of 3 is very aware of the challenges that come alongside motherhood.

    Izzy is also a violinist and author of ‘Dare to Dream’ and ‘Mindfulness 4 Mums’.  Izzy has been affected by anxiety through her life and has found how mindfulness and self-care can bring some calm to motherhood and that getting the family involved can help your little ones too.

    Follow Izzy on Instagram @mrs_izzyjudd and check out her fantastic books which are genuinely among the most powerful I have read sharing her journey to motherhood and simple tactics to bring a calmer energy to the life of a busy mum.

    E56. Busting Common Pregnancy Nutrition Myths with Rhiannon Lambert

    E56. Busting Common Pregnancy Nutrition Myths with Rhiannon Lambert

    Nutrition in pregnancy is a powerful force, not only does the food you eat need to nourish your body but also your growing baby. However, alongside nutrition in pregnancy comes a whole heap of myths and misconceptions. At a time where it is so important to have the facts and to be empowered to nourish your body and baby it is vital we unpick fact from fiction and I cannot think of a better guest to help us do just that today.

    I am joined by the wonderful Rhiannon Lambert. Rhiannon is one of the UK’s leading nutritionists, a best-selling author and chart-topping podcast host.

    In 2016 she founded Rhitrition, a renowned Harley Street clinic, which specialises in weight management, sports nutrition, eating disorders, and pre- and post-natal nutrition. As an evidence-based practitioner, Rhiannon is committed to the benefits of a scientific approach to nutrition.

    In 2017, Rhiannon published her first book, the best-selling Re-Nourish: A Simple Way To Eat Well, part handbook, part cookbook, in which she shares her food philosophy to lay the foundations for a happy, healthy relationship with eating. She followed this up with Top Of Your Game: Eating For Mind & Body (2019), co-written with world snooker champion, Ronnie O’Sullivan. And her third book, The Science of Nutrition, was recently published in 2021 and is a Sunday times bestseller.

    Rhiannon also hosts the top-rated ‘Food for Thought’ which gives listeners practical, evidence-based advice on how to achieve a healthier lifestyle.

    So, I think it is safe to say we are in the very best hands today with Rhiannon!

    Follow Rhiannon on social media @rhitrition and check out her services at www.rhitrition.com

Good info but poor sound quality.

I want to get all of the information from this podcast, but the sound quality is so poor, I really can’t even hear half of what they’re saying.
