29. Registry 101 - What to buy for baby? What is safe? What is worth it? with Gina Mydlo, pediatric PT
Car seats? Playmats? Bouncers? Pack and play? Swaddles? Bottles? Pacis? We cover it all with Gina!
Gina is a pediatric PT and she comes to the show today to talk about a very special guide that every mom and parents should have access to. Knowing what to buy for baby, what is really safe, what is worth it, and what would have absolutely no purpose other than making money for the brand you’re buying it from, is very hard! Let’s put it simply. It is freaking overwhelming.
So many brands, so many things!! And reality is you don’t need all the things. Nope. Not at all. Some items are also not so great for baby’s development: putting their hips in dysfunctional positions, some not allowing them to move freely, etc.
That’s why I’m so excited that Gina is coming to the show again! As a therapist, she knows what will support a healthy development and what might not be the best option.
Listen up, you can grab her guide for free, yes! Simply click below to grab it:

#28. Why Kegels aren‘t always the answer?
Let’s talk about Kegels shall we! Most people will ask you if you’re doing your Kegels when you’re telling them you had a baby recently. “It’s very important for your pelvic floor recovery” they say. But what if Kegels aren‘t always the answer? What if there is more to it?
That’s what we will be talking about in this episode! We’ll review some common misconceptions about Kegels.
We’ll talk about:
Why you should stop doing Kegels when peeing - like immediately
Why coordinating pelvic floor activation and breathing matters - like a lot
Why learning how to isolate your pelvic floor muscles is extra important - aka stop jumping on your seat when doing Kegels
What should also be added in your routine on top of Kegels to support your pelvic floor recovery

I’ve been wanting to record today’s episode for a while now, and I am so pumped to finally release it.

Empowered and not confused, b. Listened to and not disappointed, c. reassured and not full of doubt, and d. with a plan for your recovery and not left alone in the new mom’s world and in what seems to be a completely different body.
