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.

Today I so enjoyed chatting with local midwife, Chelsea Fredlund.  Chelsea is a Licensed Midwife and Certified Professional Midwife at Placerville Midwifery. Her practice offers full-scale midwifery care for women who choose to birth at home, including prenatal visits, home birth, and postpartum visits. She also offers Birthing from Within childbirth education classes for clients and other families planning a natural childbirth in or out of the hospital.  She is mom to one 4 ½ year old girl named Mariah and currently lives in Placerville, CA with her daughter and husband.

In her episode we chat about:

  • How nice it can be to come in and out of birth work while parenting young kids
  • Having her partner home for 3 months after birth
  • Her process of going from being a doula to a midwife in recent years
  • The importance of nutrition and exercise during pregnancy
  • Nursing challenging
  • Shifting your lifestyle around sleep
  • A "good" baby is not a sleepy baby
  • The difference between midwifery (particularly home birth midwifery) care and hospital care
  • Ways that you can use a midwife both for prenatal and postpartum, even if you plan to birth in a hospital
  • The importance of emotional support around your own parenting decisions during postpartum
  • Be ready to shift expectations!

This is especially true for new moms. But because of Icon, You don’t have to worry!  Their undies feel like a regular, beautiful pair of underwear, but can hold up to 6 teaspoons of liquid without the bulky, bunchy plasticy feel of a pantyliner.  Icon is also offering listeners of the podcast $5 off your order with code postpartum at checkout.
