Life After Miscarriage + Infant Loss
In today's episode we are talking all about miscarriage and infant loss. I am joined by Gurinder Mann, blogger at A Drug Named Hope. She opens up about her journey and also shares how we can be supportive of those who have suffered a miscarriage or infant loss. It's a hard conversation to have but one that I have admittedly been very eager to talk about as the miscarriage rate is 1 in 4. We need to be talking about this.

Money and Mental Health
In today's episode we chat with Martha Adams, certified financial planning professional. She talks to us about financial wellness and mental wellness being one in the same thing. Many of our feelings around money have developed over many years and have been passed on from generations before us. Martha helps identify these emotions and reminds us to own our own money story....I learned a lot. I know you will too!

Domestic Abuse During Covid 19
In today's episode we chat with Kim Dhillon, domestic abuse and sexual assault counsellor. For many people, staying home during quarantine is more dangerous than being out. Today, Kim shares some domestic abuse statistics and tells how us how covid 19 has affected these numbers. She also shares how we can support a friend or family member who may be affected by domestic violence. This is something we should all know more about. I learned a lot from this discussion and I hope you will as well.

Very Good Start MB3
Interesting slant on topics. Can’t wait for 2020.
Thank you Tina for the topics you have covered already. Your thoughts and understanding on issues in Canada and around the world is refreshing. I’ve followed you for some time on your social media outlets and you are amazing. Thank you again! Much blessings.
I have a topic I’d like to suggest for a future episode since you seem really interested in covering women’s issues. I’d love if you could share your thoughts and opinions on hysterectomies (removal of the womb) as a form of permanent birth control. It’s different from getting your tubes tied and actually a very common procedure in India! I’ve never heard anyone speak of this through your “lens” before and it’s not something I think we in the US or Canada really know much of...
Anyways, best of luck for your new show and I’ll definitely stay tuned :)
