The Postpartum Podcast

In this biweekly podcast, Kellie Edson, childbirth educator-in-training chats with both birth professionals and regular moms about all aspects of the transition to parenthood. Whether this is your first child or your tenth, I hope that you gain new knowledge, insights or just plain old comfort from this twice per month show. This podcast was born out of the belief that with each child born, a mother is born (or reborn) and that transition in all of its messy, beautiful chaos deserves to be honored, supported, and celebrated.

This week I chat with Lindsey Taylor, the owner of the doula agency Taylor Made Doulas. Lindsey is a full spectrum birth and postpartum doula and mom of 4.  In this episode we talk about the mom/life balance, how she started a business during her 4th child's postpartum year and how that experience compared to that of her first child when she was just 18 years old.

We also talk about the importance of prenatal childbirth education and postpartum support and how we need to be real with one another about the whole picture when it comes to breastfeeding, not just the social media worthy moments. 

You can find out more about Lindsey and her doula agency here. 

The postpartum depression documentary we mentioned is Dark Side of the Full Moon

Today I chat with the lovely, jack of many trades Rachel Rambach. She is a board certified music therapist, singer, songwriter, educator, blogger, podcaster and now – a mom of TWO!  Her daughter, Mia, was born at the end of May after we recorded this podcast.

We chat about:

·      The unique challenges of maternity leave when you work for yourself and own a business, and working as a music therapist in the afternoons.

·      Sleep Deprivation

·      Dealing with an incredibly quick first labor and how that shaped her view and expectations for her second labor

·      What a music therapist does. (So cool!)

·      How pregnancy is different the second time around with a toddler running around

·      And a whole lot more!

It was so wonderful talking with Rachel – if you want to learn more about her, check out her podcast, Guitars & Granola Barsher Blog, and her private music therapy practice.  You can also find her on Instagram and Twitter

As always, you can download the episode on iTunes here.

While you’re on iTunes, I hope you consider rating and reviewing the show so that we can reach more moms!

Look for a SPECIAL Mini-Episode next week with an exciting announcement! 

Happy August!
