    Talking Women's Birth Rights With Sara Ojjeh

    Talking Women's Birth Rights With Sara Ojjeh

    Sara Ojjeh wants you to have the birth you want to have. She's a trained birth doula, birth rights activist, philanthropist and mom of three young boys. After supporting her sister-in-law during her labor, Sara got the idea to go all in and become a doula. She has also become an activist focusing on women's birth rights here in the US. Sara is a producer for the upcoming documentary film "Born Free," which tackles maternal mortality in the U.S. 

    In this episode, Sara discusses how it's the right of every woman to choose how she wants to deliver her baby, but in the U.S. it is not that simple. Many women face an uphill battle if they want something other than what insurance covers (or God forbid, they don't have insurance). Her documentary “Born Free” sheds light on some eye opening facts – like how in the U.S., the number of maternal deaths per 100,000 births between 1995 and 2015 has risen by 30% – or that black mothers in the U.S. are 4 times more likely to die of childbirth complications than white mothers.

    Together with Hilaria and Daphne, they discuss Sara's choice of home birth and what it's like to give birth to twins. Plus, they talk about maternity mortality rates and how the U.S. can do better when it comes to how we treat mothers in labor. A great resource for expectant moms to be informed is childbirthconnections.org.

    Teaching Our Kids Mindsight and Fostering Their Internal Compass With Dr. Dan Siegel

    If you've listened to past episodes of Mom Brain there's one name that has come up many times by past guests, and that name is Dr. Dan Siegel. He is a Neuropsychiatrist, clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine and the founding co-director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center at UCLA. He's also the NY Times best-selling author of countless parenting books, most notably The Whole-Brain Child. His new book The Power of Showing Up will be out on 1/7/20.




    Dr. Siegel discusses the importance of present parenting and building valuable relationships with our kids. Also, how to help our children listen to their WHOLE body (gut, heart, mind and more) to develop "mindsight," and the "internal compass" that will help them through emotionally challenging periods of life. Plus, a scientific look at the importance of empathy, tenderness, and presence.
