    Ep 22: Human Design, Cosmic Birth, & Magic with Andrea Gomez

    Today’s episode was such a juicy, joyful conversation with my cosmic friend, Andrea Gomez. Andrea describes herself as a “creator of things that infuse our life with magic” and our conversation was absolutely magical—exploring what it means to be energetic beings, splashing our feet into the ocean of Human Design, and connecting heart-to-heart on how we’ve each grown to be more authentic versions of ourselves. 
     
    And we of course spoke about birthwork! I shared the beauty and magic of the birthing experience as I see it, what led to me becoming a coach, and something I’ve never shared with you before about all the things I am considering when I’m working with a client on their healing/pregnancy journey. 
     
    Find Andrea and her magical world on her website, www.nourishingwitch.com or on Instagram @nourishingwitch. I highly recommend exploring a Human Design reading on her website: https://www.nourishingwitch.com/humandesignreadings. She’s also birthing a beautiful Tarot card deck that embodies so much of the magic we discussed in this episode.

    Ep 21: Meet The Tribe Featuring Mary Porter-Chorley

    Ep 21: Meet The Tribe Featuring Mary Porter-Chorley

    In today’s episode, I had the pleasure of chatting with one of the members our Birth Warrior Community on Facebook, Mary Kristine Porter-Chorley. Mary is Mama to her son, Joseph, who lives in the sky, and an adorable cat named Gizmo.
     
    She’s also the co-founder of “Love from O,” a baby-loss charity providing support for men, non birthing partners & families. (Shout-out to Shannen Read, another beautiful Birth Warrior based in the U.K. who cofounded Love from O with Mary). 
     
    To connect with Mary, find her on IG (@thechorleyedit) or on her blog (https://thechorleyedit.blogspot.com). And of course, join her and the other Birth Warriors inside of our private Facebook community: facebook.com/groups/birthwarriorcommunity.

    Ep 20: Honoring The Black Birthing Experience

    Ep 20: Honoring The Black Birthing Experience

    The Black birthing experience in the United States has such deep and rich history. Some aspects are painful and others beautiful, but all of it laced with resistance, a constant fight to reclaim the sacredness of birth, to liberate our bodies, and secure a safer future for our children and families. 
    In this episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing Nicole JeanBaptiste, who’s a mother, Birthworker, Birth Advocate, and Oral Historian. So much of Nicole’s work involves honoring and uplifting the Black birthing experience. She shared with us, the contributions of Black women to the field of Gynecology, the origins of midwifery in the United States, the imbalances in our medical system that bring harm to birthing people, and ways we can move towards a safer birthing experience.

    Ep 19: How Not Honoring Your Baby Might Be Affecting You

    Ep 19: How Not Honoring Your Baby Might Be Affecting You

    As a Birth Warrior you know that there are certain dates that are especially hard to work through: the anniversary of your baby’s estimated due date, the anniversary of the day they entered the world, and the anniversary of the day they left. 
     
    My son’s birthday was on February 14th and boy were my emotions high as I moved closer to the date! In the first year after his transition, I remember being so uncertain about what to do that I ended up doing nothing at all. I hated the gaping hole I felt afterwards, and so this year, I decided that I would absolutely do something to honor him. And I did. What I was left with was a sense of peace and even joyfulness. (FYI...I noticed I mistakenly said that Feb 14 was his "Angel-versary" during the podcast. It was actually in March when he made his transition. ie, when he became an angel. He was born on Feb 14)
     
    This week’s podcast is an exploration into the MANY ways that not doing something to honor your baby ends up affecting you...and in actually, affecting all the spaces that require your presence. I walk you through what happens in your mind and body why that’s the case, and really accessible ways that you can honor your baby and have that experience contribute to your ongoing healing.

    Ep 18: Pregnancy & The Permission to Be Loved

    Ep 18: Pregnancy & The Permission to Be Loved

    How do you love and care for yourself when you’re pregnant or think you might be pregnant? And how differently do you treat yourself or ask others to treat you when you’re not pregnant? 
     
    We’ve entered into the month dedicated to love and while romantic love is fab(!), our first episode looks at the differences in how we love ourselves (love as an action) and how we ask others to love us when we’re pregnant vs. when we’re not. And on a deeper level, how we might be holding love and care from ourselves when we’re not in the “pregnant club.” 
     
    We’re taught that we deserve love based on conditions—our ability to give something in return, ie. a baby. And so, when it’s “just us,” we either deprioritize our own care or may not feel that we have the same right to ask for what we need as we would if we were pregnant. 
     
    In this episode, I share how pregnancy inherently gives a greater permission to be loved and cared for and the differences you may experience after a loss. I share examples from my own pregnancy journey and some that might have snuck into yours without your knowing.
     
    The truth of the matter is that you are worthy of love—pregnant or not, TTC or not, ready to try again or not. And if you do nothing else this month, allow yourself to be loved just because you exist.

    Ep 17: On Ancestral Healing

    Ep 17: On Ancestral Healing

    This week’s topic on Ancestral Healing is not one that I’ve ever spoken to. And perhaps it was my ancestors themselves who inspired me to share this perspective with you. 
    As I am coming off of the heels on an Energy Healing training based in the ancient African wisdom, ancestral healing is ripe in my being. 
    The topic of connecting with ancestors might be a strange one for you. It certainly has been for me up until just a few months ago. And we often look at the traumas or imbalances we hold in our body as an “ancestral curse.” This episode invites you to create space for this new perspective: looking at the “curse” as the gift. 
    In this episode, I share the personal experience of trauma that has existed across generations in my family, my work / responsibility / privilege in clearing them, and experiences I’ve had being visited by my ancestors. 
    I hope this brings you clarity or curiosity. I hope it starts to fill pieces of the puzzle that have been missing for you. And I hope it brings you the reminder that you are not alone—now, nor have you ever been. 
    You are the embodiment of your ancestors’ wildest dreams! Sending you so much love, my fellow Birth Warriors.
