    Interview with Breastfeeding Expert Ros McFadden

    Interview with Breastfeeding Expert Ros McFadden

    Today, Dr. Dunni and Ros McFadden discuss their aim to normalize breastfeeding and challenge the guilt and discomfort that some mothers may feel. They encourage mothers to trust their instincts and make informed choices about breastfeeding, while also highlighting the importance of support from employers and society as a whole. The episode strikes a balance between addressing the practicalities of breastfeeding, such as clothing choices and expressing milk at work, and addressing the emotional and societal aspects of breastfeeding. 

    KEY TAKEAWAYS



    Breastfeeding is a personal choice and journey, and mothers should feel empowered to make decisions that are best for themselves and their babies.



    Employers should provide supportive policies and facilities for breastfeeding mothers in the workplace to promote their well-being and productivity.



    Practical tips, such as using breast pads, choosing breastfeeding-friendly clothing, and being aware of teething issues, can help mothers navigate the challenges of breastfeeding.



    Breastfeeding in public should be normalized, and mothers should feel confident and supported in feeding their babies wherever they are.



    Seeking support from professionals, peers, and resources like mum pods can enhance the breastfeeding experience and make it more comfortable and convenient for mothers.



    BEST MOMENTS

    "Breastfeeding is supporting her health, mental health, and the health of her child. So, Why is that good for the employer? Reduces sick leave, increases well-being, loyalty, and morale."

    "Breastfeeding is natural, just as natural as putting food in your mouth. It's your choice, your life. Own it."

    "I designed a pod that could be placed in an airport, shopping center, or workplace. A relaxing, safe space for breastfeeding and expressing milk."

    "Breastfeeding is a journey. It's about the good, the bad, and the ugly experiences in motherhood. Share, connect, and support each other."

    "Breastfeeding is not just about feeding. It's about the emotional and societal aspects. Normalize breastfeeding, challenge guilt, and provide support."

    Self Sacrifice Is Not Love

    Self Sacrifice Is Not Love

    In this episode, Dr. Dunni discusses the importance of self-love for mothers. She challenges the societal expectation that mothers should constantly sacrifice themselves for the sake of others, arguing that this mindset can lead to harm and burnout. Dr. Duni shares five key actions for practicing self-love: asking for love and understanding, setting boundaries to create a sacred space, fostering independence in children, staying connected with like-minded individuals, and prioritizing activities that bring joy and well-being. Through personal anecdotes and practical advice, Dr. Dunni encourages mothers to prioritize their own well-being and embrace self-love as a gift they deserve.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS



    Show yourself love by asking for help and expressing your needs.



    Set boundaries to create your sacred space and prioritize your well-being.



    Stay connected with like-minded individuals who empower and support you.



    Foster independence in your children by giving them opportunities to learn and grow.



    Take time to do something you love that brings you joy and peace.



    BEST MOMENTS

    "Unless you fill yourself with love, unless you fill your cup, you will not be able to give the love that you perhaps need to give to others." 

    "You can ask people, look, I need love too. I need you to consider me too. I need you to recognize the situation I'm in too. I need you to understand me too." 

    "Boundary setting has a way of helping you as a mother... it can be very empowering, but also, I have to say, it also can feel like you're being trapped."

    "When you create your sacred space by saying no, you are not sacrificing yourself. You are saying yes to you. You're saying yes to your rest. You're saying yes to your peace of mind." 

    "We need to foster independence in our children... Let's stop babying our children so much so that they cannot do things for themselves."

    How To Juggle Multiple Tasks Simultaneously

    How To Juggle Multiple Tasks Simultaneously

    In this episode, Dr. Dunni pays tribute to all the persistent jugglers around the world who do not get paid for their work. She shares a heartfelt poem and discusses the challenges of juggling multiple responsibilities as a mother. Dr. Dunni, an award-winning mom empowerment coach, offers practical tips and strategies for managing tasks and avoiding stress and burnout. She emphasizes the importance of prioritizing and scheduling tasks, using well-being blocks for self-care, and leveraging technology to automate and delegate certain tasks. Dr. Dunni encourages listeners to embrace flexibility, set boundaries, and find moments of rest and relaxation amidst juggling the responsibilities of motherhood.

     

    The Persistent Jugglers

    Too much to do, so little time

    This has soon become a mother's rhyme

    Day in day out, the tasks don't end

    Going into the night when everyone's in bed

     

    So the pressure has caused you to grow extra hands

    All the balls are in the air, and they don't get to land

    Now, you are a persistent juggler; the world is your circus

    Little wonder why stress and exhaustion affect the best of us

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS



    Juggling multiple tasks and responsibilities as a mother can be challenging and overwhelming.



    Prioritizing tasks and scheduling priorities is crucial for managing time effectively.



    Utilizing time blocks for well-being activities, such as breathing exercises or hydration breaks, is important for self-care.



    Combining brain-intensive tasks with muscle-intensive tasks can help maximize productivity.



    Limiting distractions, automating tasks with technology, and using technology wisely can improve efficiency and productivity.



    BEST MOMENTS

    "We do not prioritize our schedule; we schedule our priorities." 

    "There are certain things that we need to do, but because they are so uncomfortable, unpleasant, maybe hard, we say, I'll do it later."

    "These well-being blocks are supposed to keep us having those moments of relaxing, whether you're breathing, or you're going to just close your eyes and have a bit of a siesta."

    "There are so many tasks that we do, but there are some things that can be put on repeat. So when this comes, this comes and takes it away and carries it somewhere else. You can automate that."

    "It is okay that it happens, but it's also okay if you let some of those balls drop. We are juggling rubber balls, we are juggling glass balls. There are some that can drop."

    Books You Need To Read - Part 2

    Books You Need To Read - Part 2

    Following on from her last episode, Dr. Dunni is back to share her passion for reading. This time, she is discussing four books that have had a profound impact on her life and can help mothers become more effective leaders. Dr Dunni discusses how these books generate curiosity about the existence of other people. Through these books, she considers the importance of tackling difficult tasks head on, the connection between physical health and holistic well-being, the formation of habits and the need to think for ourselves. Dr Dunni ends the episode by encouraging readers to find enlightenment by living in the present moment.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    "Eat That Frog" by Brian Tracy teaches the importance of tackling difficult tasks first and not procrastinating.
    "The Science of Getting Well" by Wallace D. Waddles emphasizes the importance of physical health, including nutrition, movement, and fresh air.
    "Outwitting the Devil" by Napoleon Hill explores the concept of breaking free from a hypnotic rhythm and taking control of one's thoughts and actions.
    "Atomic Habits" by James Clear highlights the power of small changes in building good habits and breaking bad ones.
    "The Power of Now" by Eckhart Tolle emphasizes the importance of living in the present moment and finding gratitude and appreciation in the now.

    BEST MOMENTS

    "Books have changed my life. They have taken me from a place where I felt down in the dumps, feeling dejected, feeling upset, feeling very annoyed, upset, depressed even, to a place where I felt energized, happy, joyful, grateful."

    "The moment you have a reason for being, it makes a huge difference. But the moment you start to say, oh, I don't know what I'm doing. Maybe I'm not doing it right. Oh, well, I'll just sit down. I'll go lay me down. Then it becomes like that vehicle that you have at home that nobody drives."

    "The moment you don't put yourself to good use, you could start to fall apart. So you need to make sure that certain of these principles that are shared in this book, The Science of Getting Well, is very important."

    "The moment you think about something continuously, it becomes a manifestation of what you say. So that's the reason why I'm always talking. You probably, maybe I might have seen on my social media posts when I talk about affirmations, you need to say certain things, positive things."

    "Focusing on the past can lead to depression and sadness and regrets and guilt. Focusing on the future can lead us to anxiety and worry and fear. But when we stay in the now, we are tuned into gratitude and love and appreciation of what we are experiencing."
