    14. Taking in the GOOD with Gratitude

    14. Taking in the GOOD with Gratitude

    I share with you today, the practice of taking in the good.  Dr. Rick Hanson is AMAZING and I discovered his book, Buddha's Brain while in my 200hr Yoga Teacher Training at Three Trees Yoga. 

    This 3 step practice can literally rewire our brain...incredible!

    As mentioned, this episode ends season 1 of the Podcast, as I'll be taking time to enjoy the last month of the year with my family, taking in the GOOD!

    11. Exploring Preferences in Birth

    This wraps up the 3 part mini series! Often referred to as a birth plan, having preferences written out in a clear and easy to read format can help both you and your birth team to know the focus of your goals. We cover birth preferences in detail in Nesting, the Childbirth Education Course that I offer both in person, and coming SOON online.  Sign up for the exclusive email list here to be the first to read and hear all about it.

    10. Exploring Education in Birth

    By the end of this brief but thorough 35 minute recording, I touch on What birth preparation courses cover (and what I cover in my offerings, more specifically), why childbirth education is important, who can benefit from this information, when to begin looking into class offerings (hint: it's never too soon!), where you can receive this educational experience and lastly how to find a class near you.

    9. Exploring Options in Birth

    9. Exploring Options in Birth

    Sweet feedback from many listeners led me to this 3 episode mini series.  I've had so many of you respond, expressing overwhelm when thinking about birth. Understandable, no doubt!  So today, we address locations and providers as we begin to explore options.  As mentioned, there is a neat documentary, Why Not Home.  It lends an insightful perspective.

    Online Childbirth education options with The Chosen Nest launch SOON! Thanks for tuning in. See you next week as we Evaluate Childbirth Education!
