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.

Jenna is so lovely. I loved getting to chat with her about meditation and motherhood and so many other things!  Jenna is the founder and nutrition therapist at the private practice Eat to Love where she works with people with disordered eating. She also leads a weekly meditation group for moms called the Open Heart Project Mommy Sangha. She lives with her partner Andrea and their one year old son Domenico Peter, aka Mimmo, in New York City.

I loved chatting with Alaura Weaver! Alaura is a freelance copywriter, blogger, word-geek, mom, and "Bad-ass Motherblogger" who writes web content for small businesses and digital marketing professionals. She specializes in parenting, health, and wellness topics. You can read her blog about the history of motherhood here. Alaura is also a contributor for The Postpartum Year Anthology.  I'm so glad to be able to talk about her experiences, which are rare, but I think it's important to share so that other moms who have experienced it feel less alone.

In her episode we talk about:

  • Her traumatic first birth experience
  • Leaving her sales job during her baby's first year
  • Dealing with a PUPP rash at the end of pregnancy
  • Her struggle with Postpartum Depression
  • How her second c-section with a midwife's guidance was healing
  • The importance of not being dogmatic with parenting
  • Do practical things after the baby is born!
  • The reality of Baby Blues not being a "just" but something to acknowledge and respect
  • The importance of being with our feelings
  • And more!

Please  don't forget to check out Alaura's websites and freelance services here and here.
