    Mothering #3: Rites of Passage

    Mothering #3: Rites of Passage

    In this Mothering podcast, I talk about my own experiences and thoughts around all the various transitions or “rites of passage” that babies and young kids might experience.

    When they experience these things, so do we! I cover some examples from night weaning to losing teeth, and explore why these transitions are such big deals and how they might affect the entire family. As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts and experiences about this topic.

The way “out” of the current confusing conversation around birth/midwifery care happens when we have these conversations.

    Take a listen to my internal dialogue about this topic!

Maryn calms the mystery of not knowing

I might be pregnant (first child!) while typing this - I’m not sure, but I don’t want to test for HCG. I’ve been listening to Maryn’s wise words for years now (sorry I haven’t reviewed sooner!) & I’ve re-listened twice or even thrice to most of her episodes. In this weird limbo of time where I feel I’m either waiting for blood or waiting for a sign of life, her voice & honesty & wisdom are so validating. Well, that’s always. But it feels particularly special being in the midst of the transition from (perhaps) maiden to mother. Thank you Maryn ❤️

Forever grateful

I am so grateful for Maryn’s willingness to share her wisdom with the world via this podcast. My life has certainly been changed for the better as a direct result of listening to the info shared in this sacred virtual space.

Educational, Honest, Not for the Faint of Heart

Maryn and the inspiring guests she hosts are simply overflowing with scientifically backed information, spiritual insights, and experiences they share - all in the name of exposing the realities of birth in today’s world, and letting the listener figure out what to do with what they hear. This podcast is for people who are willing to challenge themselves and take an honest look at the world around them, it is NOT for people who are okay with unquestioningly accepting whatever “truth” someone else hands them. It is life changing, inspiring, jaw-dropping, and even funny. Truly the best of its kind.
