Here is a little personal tidbit about me, I love podcasts! All kinds of podcasts; true crime, political, comedy, historical, fiction, non-fiction and of course pregnancy, birth, postpartum and perinatal related ones. I listen to podcasts in the car, while exercising, while doing embroidery and even while in bed before sleeping. So needless to say, being invited to be on the Plus Mommy Podcast was a highlight for me! I first met Jen McLellan many years ago at a party and what a blessing that turned out to be. Today I am honored to be able to count her among my friends. Her podcast is not only an excellent resource, but also a place to find humor, support, encouragement and empowerment. I cannot recommend it enough.
I first appeared on the Plus Mommy Podcast in early 2019, for an Q&A interview about size friendly providers and practices. We had a great conversation and I really enjoyed my time with her. We laughed and cried and shared some great evidence and resources for pregnant people and their families. So when Jen reached out to me about my new book, Midwifery for Expectant Parents I jumped at the chance to sit down with her again. Once again, we laughed and cried and had an amazing conversation. The result is the episode, Considering Working With a Midwife?
Of course, we talk about my book but there is also so much more.
- What is the difference between the Obstetric Model and the Midwifery Model of Care?
- If I work with a Midwife what are my pain management options?
- Is it ever too late to change care providers?
- Preparing for Postpartum success
All of these topics and more! Are available on this great podcast episode so please hop onto your favorite podcast source and check us out. If you want to read a little more about my journey to “birthing” my book, please read my post all about it.
