    Your Higher Self and Birth with DeAnn from Seasons Grace Sage

    Your Higher Self and Birth with DeAnn from Seasons Grace Sage

    DeAnn knew that a reconnection to her Higher Self was key in opening up a mindset in preparation for birth that was like no other.

    Listen as DeAnn speaks about the absolute necessity of birthing women learning how to reconnect to this powerful guidance from within, the way she created and nurtured this relationship herself, and why it is key in preventing birthing women leaning into external support that isn't right for them.

    Kailah: An Aussie Freebirth after Gestational Thrombocytopenia

    Kailah: An Aussie Freebirth after Gestational Thrombocytopenia

    After her dreambirth was taken away from her during an abusive, highly intervened with and traumatic first birth experience (following the diagnosis of Gestational Thrombocytopenia at 35 weeks) Kailah knew something wasn't right post birth and opened herself up to another way for her next birthing experience.

    Feeling unprepared and lacking the feminine guidance she desired in her first pregnancy (although she received continuity of care) and realising Private Midwifery and Doula support was unaffordable, she divinely reconnected with a friend who brought the idea of birthing unassisted into her consciousness.

    Kailah shares her pregnancy and labour journey, what she had to work through after the fear of "bleeding out" had been planted in her head by medical professionals first time round and the backlash she received from her family that did not condone her choices, one day after birth.

    The Intelligence of Water with Veda Austin

    The Intelligence of Water with Veda Austin

    The Intelligence of Water with Veda Austin

    Veda Austin is a Water Researcher, taking Crystallographic images of frozen water - visually capturing the way water responds to influences around it and producing mind blowing results that show quite clearly that water does have it's own intelligence, in the 3D realm and beyond the veil.

    In this episode we discuss the intelligence of water in relation to pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, our amniotic fluid, early birth blood, fertile and infertile semen and many more examples of the way bodily fluids can tell us something about ourselves.

    I have many questions for Veda in this episode; about the way the moon affects water, if ocean water can become informed, how exactly our thoughts and feelings imprint on us as literal bodies of water and how water stores information and memory.

    To see all the images Veda refers to in this episode, go to @themidwitch on Instagram

    Celebrating Death in Birth: The Early Freebirth of Freya Rose

    Celebrating Death in Birth: The Early Freebirth of Freya Rose

    Celebrating Death in Birth: The Early Freebirth of Freya Rose

    After experiencing a traumatic first birth, Erin decided she was going to freebirth her second child and during her pregnancy weaved a beautiful web of wise women around her; who would later become her supportive tribe when she birthed her babe early.

    Erin speaks so powerfully and so candidly about the loss of her baby girl and the medicine she received in being able to do so. She touches on the stigma around miscarriages and the unspoken process that becomes so dehumanised by the way society speaks about it and her newfound understanding that she wishes to share with other women - that death is sad, but not scary.

    Erin shares about the painful moment she first realised her baby had died, she describes the physiology of birthing her baby undisturbed and freely in her home, the difference between fear and body wisdom/intuition, the ways in she which she honoured her daughter, herself and her experience - and expresses so perfectly the duality of celebrating life and death together.

    Erin shares the gratitude and growth she leant into, her new relationship to life and birth via the desire she had to experience it all (physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally), the reclamation of, and reconnection to her body wisdom, through witnessing her body birth her babe unassisted - and the beautiful way she speaks about it all with her youngest daughter.

    Erin now facilitates Early Birth Shamanic Healing and Celebratory Ceremony and Ritual for women and is also now teaching Birthworkers how to come into relationship with death as a part of birthwork, so that they are able to support birthing women without fear.

    Fertility Awareness for Sovereign Women with Laura from Beldam Woman Care

    Fertility Awareness for Sovereign Women with Laura from Beldam Woman Care

    In this informative episode, Laura shares her knowledge and wisdom around a topic that has been denied to women for so many generations; autonomy in managing our own reproductive health.

    Laura speaks about Body Literacy for Girls and the ways in which we can create spaces to guide young women in reconnecting with their mammalian nature - to come into their power before they outsource pharmaceutical products or medical advice.

    We speak about the Pill and it's damaging effects, the natural forms of contraception and conception (that no one is speaking about), the difference between The Rhythm Method and FAM (The Fertility Awareness Method), learning to observe the body for hormonal health and fertility and our common dislike of Period Tracking Apps.

    We chat about common female reproductive health issues such as PCOS, Endometriosis, cysts and fibroids - some of the causes of these and offers some wise woman practices to correct them. Laura delves into Postpartum Tracking for Mothers and squashes the myths around a postpartum mother's cycle returning.

    This episode if full of the wisdom we wished our Grandmothers and the Crones in our communities had of passed down to us!

kristen rosas ,

a woman in her power

anita’s voice is strong and sure: leading women to reclaim our power, our intuition, our role as the matriarch one episode at a time.

Yikes

It’s disappointing to know that I’ve been listening to someone who holds space for bigoted views for months. I loved your podcast; it was empowering, and while I haven’t agreed with all topics covered thus far, I am more than willing to listen to different viewpoints as that is the best way to learn. Your latest episode and guest showed a severe lack of actual research and a heavy dependence on scary news stories. You and your guest should try getting to know (or at the very least actually talk to) people who are transgender. You both added frequent disclaimers that your views are “controversial,” as if transgender folks are readily accepted into society and don’t experience any violence themselves. Yes, a MtF transgender person has vastly different life experiences than a cis female, but that certainly does not mean they are trying to erase female experience. I rolled my eyes so many times while trying to endure this episode that I just had to stop listening and unfortunately I don’t think I have enough respect left to continue as a subscriber.

Necessary for these times

This has quickly become one of my favorite podcasts. Anita is a true gift to all of us, I highly recommend this podcast for birthworkers, mothers, and anyone who is invested in supporting life on this planet.
