    Episode 041 - A Renewed Life: How a Total Physical Transformation Led to Joy, Marriage & A New Baby at 40 w/ Melinda

    An unhealthy first marriage resulted in an unhealthy, overweight, stay-at-home mom of 3 boys for our guest Melinda for years. As a divorcee, she then became responsible for caring for and financially supporting her sons and she didn’t know what to do. Unhappy with her own physical appearance, Melinda lacked the self-confidence to even go out and apply for a job. Determined to change that though, Melinda transformed not only her body, but her life altogether. At 40 years old she was in better health than she had ever been and was involved with a great man to whom she married shortly thereafter. Melinda’s amazing health journey led to increased fertility and she conceived shortly after getting married to the love of her life.

    Tune in to this episode to hear Melinda’s truly inspiring transformation and her entire “Pregnancy After 40” Journey and Story.

    Mom at 44; Author at 46; Cancer-Kicker at 48; YouTuber at 50!

Open, honest, and funny, Bettina is an inspiration to all women over 40 years as it relates to pregnancy, career, peace, and happiness!

    Episode 039 - The Unspoken Trauma of Pregnancy, Labor, Delivery and Postpartum Depression (PPD) w/ Mary Beth

    Episode 039 - The Unspoken Trauma of Pregnancy, Labor, Delivery and Postpartum Depression (PPD) w/ Mary Beth

    While both of Mary Beth’s pregnancies were relatively healthy at 38 and 41, she is very candid in this “Pregnancy After 40” episode about the mental and physical toll that pregnancy had on her which prevented her from truly enjoying the time she spent carrying her daughters. During this journey, Mary Beth talks about how her initial reluctance in having to visit both her OB and MFM Specialist on different days during her 3rd trimester ended up being a lifesaver for her daughter and led to her being induced. She also shares how chiropractic treatments helped alleviate some of her pregnancy-related ailments, both of her traumatic deliveries, and destigmatizing Postpartum Depression (PPD).

    To hear more, tune in to this episode for Mary Beth’s entire “Pregnancy After 40” Journey and Story.

    Episode 038 - Natural Pregnancy at 44 After Years of Trying to Conceive Again w/ Leann

    Episode 038 - Natural Pregnancy at 44 After Years of Trying to Conceive Again w/ Leann

    Brief Summary:

    An easy natural conception for her first child at 39 years old led Leann and her husband to believe that it would not take that long to conceive their second child. Several years later with a miscarriage along the way, Leann shares her “Pregnancy After 40” story and journey, including an emergency induction due to high blood pressure which turned into preeclampsia. Many hours later, Leann’s daughter was born several weeks early and had to return to the hospital days after being discharged because their pediatrician initially disregarded the seriousness of their newborn’s jaundice, which required an admittance to the hospital again where their baby almost needed a blood transfusion.

    To hear more, tune in to this episode for Leann’s entire “Pregnancy After 40” Journey and Story.

Terrific

This podcast is a Godsend. My husband and I found very few resources when TTC at 40. I have learned a lot from the guests and host Michelle. Thank you for creating such an informative and fun show.
