    20. Holy Reclamation of our Postpartum Birthright - Nicole Parker

    20. Holy Reclamation of our Postpartum Birthright - Nicole Parker

    My Talk: "Altered Rhythms: Preparing for Postpartum Emergence" - Nourished Postpartum Summit (Plus 15 other RICH video conversations)



    In this special mid-week bonus episode in honor of the Nourished Postpartum Summit that I am part of (along with other incredible women), I'm talking with Nicole Parker, the wise mama of 4 who created it all. I wanted to hear about her lived experience and insight. As you'll listen, this woman has a deep love for this sacred time, and wants to see a cultural resurgence around the postpartum conversation that truly centers mother-baby. We talk about:



    - Nicole's path into early motherhood, and loss as her first postpartum experience

    - How she describes her first postpartum as bliss and holy reclamation after a traumatic birth

    - "I didn't know humans could access pleasure like this, that we were capable of feeling this good."

    - How she set herself up for the most ease, bringing her partner into awareness on what postpartum looks like

    - The father as guardian and protector of mother-baby in the postpartum

    - Guiding question: "If your solution for support is anything that steps between mama and child, that's not actual support. Great motive, but felt sense is one of disruption."

    - What Nicole claimed in her next postpartum experience, how things change when adding a second child and the felt experience of loss and grief

    - The postpartum experience of her her 3rd child and how that integration was

    - Newborn and toddler rhythms, differences and how to weave them together

    - Sibling integration in the postpartum time and beyond, especially the experience of the first-born

    - How important it is to prioritize serving new mothers, to show your children and partner what it looks like and making it a core family value

    - Committing to holding physical stillness, which translates to emotional and energetic stillness

    - How creating a beautiful postpartum doesn't have to be so hard or exceptional/unattainable

    - Core pillars of postpartum wellness and vitality

    - Examining your own template for safety, reception, nourishment

    - Postpartum care is an *entire* cultural and community prioritization

    - About the Nourished Postpartum summit as like sitting at the feet of your community



    "Postpartum is the imprint for motherhood"


    Nicole is a mother of (almost) four, keeper of sacred postpartum, and an embodied motherhood guide. She believes that we are meant to be well nourished as mothers, and that by surrendering to the brilliant design  of our bodies, we can reclaim the inherent gift of vibrant, sustainable, flourishing motherhood. She walks with women all along the continuum of motherhood, preconception and beyond, as they revive and restore this truth for themselves.

    19. Raising Boys with Honor and Heart: Motherhood and the Male Path - Anjelica Orion

    19. Raising Boys with Honor and Heart: Motherhood and the Male Path - Anjelica Orion

    Enjoy this expansive conversation from a woman who holds unique perspectives on male-female dynamics and energetics. I'm bringing her to share her philosophy and wisdom on the topic of how to raise boys well (and if you have daughters, check out episodes 10 + 15). Here's what we talk about:



    - Where Anjelica is at in her 2nd pregnancy

    - Going away from the narrative of depletion in motherhood, not accepting the martyr mother, and meeting needs of ALL members of the family

    - How our body is a reflection of our energy stores, and the importance of preserving the maiden energy throughout the life cycle

    - Her feelings about child spacing + the reality of infancy as up to 3 years

    - How she feels her dharma is to be an advocate for boyhood, and her philosophy of raising boys

    - Viewing character structure through the lens of astrology in addition to biological sex

    - Current state of maturity in modern boys

    - Her issues with the *modern* form of nuclear family

    - Biological connections to gender roles and her issues with traditional gender roles

    - How she sees the essential roles for mothers of boys in early childhood; cultivating in boys a relationship to the feminine that isn't dependent on his successes and failures

    - Different ages + stages: natural desire to have additional male mentor(s), skill-building, to be tested

    - Contrast of the female nature which tends to be harmonizing/social cohesion

    - Inherent energies of young boys; honoring their natural aggression and working with them rather than suppressing, how boys are often scapegoated

    - What the nursing relationship means for boys

    - The importance of a healthy mother-father relationship and what projection occurs when it's unhealthy

    - The spiritual and social scope of male-female relating and modern issues

    - Inherent male archetypes to connect with in boyhood



    Quotes:

    "Once my child was two, the entire philosophy of self-led regulation pretty much collapsed. A child cannot live in a world of Mother alone after the primary stage of infancy. "

    "The defining quality of manhood is Honor"

    16. Reflections on Being a Rooted Woman + Emotional Maturation

    There is some background noise as I recorded this episode when I was driving home from a solo trip to the Texas coast. I still feel it's a valuable conversation to have on the topic of what it means to be a rooted woman (for me) and reflections on the path of emotional maturation. Enjoy

This woman and this podcast are truly top tier. The love that oozes from these stories is as palpable as the knowledge that comes from this podcast. Each episode bares it’s own gifts and I always look forward to hearing Bethany and her guests share!!!

So refreshing

It is so encouraging and refreshing to hear positive, clear, and physiologically
-grounded wisdom of pelvic health—and especially on prolapse, as there is so much nonsense and discouragement out there. Thank you Bethany!! 🥰
