    127 A Complete Guide to Empowered Miscarriage at Home

    127 A Complete Guide to Empowered Miscarriage at Home

    When you’re pregnant, there’s no shortage of happy chatter about becoming a mom, nor shortage of options for childbirth education classes. However, there’s very little that prepares us either emotionally or physically for something that remains a hushed topic, and yet which 1 in 4 women will experience: miscarriage.
    In other articles, I’ll walk you through the physical and emotional nuances of miscarriage: why they occur, how to heal physically and emotionally, how to prevent recurrent miscarriage, and much more. But today I want to focus in on what happens in an early pregnancy loss – a miscarriage before 13 weeks – and how to experience a miscarriage at home: why you might want to, the options for doing so safely, and when to seek urgent medical care.

    125 COVID-19 Prevention: From Commonsense to Natural Remedies (& Avoiding Nonsense!)

    While herbs are an important part of my life and work, this is really a time to be cautious about who you listen to and conservative about what you try. In this episode I urge everyone to follow the CDC precautions for the prevention of COVID-19, adding in the importance of eating well and getting enough rest. For those of you who want to try herbs and supplements to support your immunity, I discuss which herbs and supplement are safe and have enough evidence in supporting immunity that they seem worth a try.

    124 COVID-19, Pregnancy and Breastfeeding: What We Know is Reassuring

    124 COVID-19, Pregnancy and Breastfeeding: What We Know is Reassuring

    If you’re pregnant, naturally, you’re concerned about COVID-19 for your own health and your baby’s. Who wouldn’t be? While a thorough search of the medical literature and the CDC website for data on COVID-19 and pregnancy shows just how very little is known at this time about the impact of COVID-19 on pregnancy and pregnancy outcomes, the good news is that what we do know so far is generally reassuring about the risks to otherwise healthy pregnant women and their babies.

So much brilliance

Really grateful to have found Avivas brilliant work. The most informative podcast and blog posts. Her work has supported me through early pregnancy nausea and then miscarriage. I trust my body more because of her perspective and information.

Informative

I absolutely love Aviva and the guest she brings on her show. Growing up, although my parents were fairly health conscious, I didn't have a lot of exposure to alternative/holistic health. When I became more interested, the amount of information was overwhelming. Aviva does an excellent job breaking things down in an engaging way. Even though I have to listen to some episode a couple times to get a grasp on the subject, it's so worth it!
