    Ep. 197: Carseat Safety with Dahlia Rizk

    Ep. 197: Carseat Safety with Dahlia Rizk

    HeHe is sharing carseat safety with Dahlia Rizk of Buckle Me Baby Coats.

    About Dahlia:

    My 3 kids, 2 cats, dog and I live in New Hampshire where winter is long and cold and like you our lives are super busy.

    I want my kids to be safe and warm in the winter but I found myself too tired to wrestle their winter coats off in the car seat every single trip.

    One day, feeling overwhelmed with all the taking the coat off - put the coat on, I thought if the zipper wasn’t in the middle this wouldn't be a problem… and I realized I had a super simple and easy fix to the winter coat problem!!

    Excited, I spoke with every coat manufacturer imaginable. I thought they would jump on the idea and together we would quickly get the coat out to all parents but none of them believed that coats needed to be redesigned for the car seat.

    They weren’t in the trenches though – I was – and I knew other parents needed car seat coats too but this was pre-social media and I didn't have a way to talk to parents directly so I focused on my growing family and going back to school and getting a degree.

    A few years ago on a grey depressing March day I saw a mom in a parking lot. Her daughter was screeching while wrapped in a blanket that was dragging through the slush. I looked at the moms face and she looked as tired and defeated as I felt when I thought of the coats.

    I knew that look and felt her pain. I thought to myself who needs the big guys Ill tell parents myself, so I had a sample made, made a video with my nephew and posted to Facebook.  My post went viral - parents loved them! In a few short years Buckle Me Baby Coats has grown from shipping out of my kitchen to shipping all over the world.

    Outside of Buckle Me Baby Coats I'm also a mental health counselor – running a mental health private practice where I treat adults with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

    Ep. 195: An OBGYN and His Wife’s Birth Experience Outside of the System

    Ep. 195: An OBGYN and His Wife’s Birth Experience Outside of the System

    Today's guest, Dr. Nathan Riley, The Holistic Obgyn shares with us the birth story of his second child during the pandemic. Nathan shares with us his thoughts on holistic women’s healthcare and what that journey has looked like throughout pregnancy, birth, and postpartum for his wife, Stephanie, and their family.

    As a provider, Nathan's goal is to provide patient-centered, freedom-focused practices helping women find their healing signal through the noise. 

    Nathan's Bio:

    Hi, I’m Nathan, and I’m a recovering conventional doctor. I was in school for most of life, trained in two medical specialties, then looked back and found myself disillusioned with the conventional maternity care model. Now, instead of serving the medical industrial complex, I serve women and their partners in achieving vitality. I have done extensive study in holistic lifestyle medicine, and my practice is based on the midwifery model. I borrow from Eastern traditions like Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine, and I provide holistic support to healing and pregnancy long before I recommend surgery, hormonal contraception, or other pharmaceuticals.
