"Or in movies or documentaries comes from your film. And this comes after we're introduced to Felicia and Paul Ellis. This is the couple who live in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and she's weighing her birth birthing options in Tulsa. Which doctor Shaw points out has a national maternal mortality rate that is double the national average. Just in general, so that means we're black women, it's even more and Felicia, poignantly says this is the quote. A black woman having a baby is like a black man at a traffic stop with the police. Why was it important to include their story in aftershock? Well, first of all, we met Felicia when she told us she was thinking, and she says in the film, she was planning to have a birth at a hospital just like everybody else. And we did want to follow while we were following the fathers who were left behind and Shawnee. We did want to follow a pregnant woman and see what that process was like for her. But throughout, as she begins her process or as she's thinking about it, she says, well, maybe I should see what other options are out there for me. And she decides to look into a birthing center and to midwives, getting dula care, to find the support that she really needs for herself. And Felicia really does say a few things. I mean, she talks about Serena. I mean, she says, you know, when she heard about Serena, it was like, you know, the most, she's the best athlete in the world. And if she has to fight for herself, what does that mean for the rest of us? But what's so beautiful about Felicia's story and I don't want to give things away, but she ends up finding the right birthing situation for her and we get to see a birth that has a wonderful outcome because of the support system that she has around her. And so it was really important for us to show what a truly supported birth looks like and our film.

"Your rights course for birth workers because i've completed it and it's amazing so i recommend all other birth workers out there if you're listening take the course. It's very be prepared though. It really gives you pause to think about. How do i advocate. How have i been advocating and understanding that. It's a journey where you are and where you feel like you could speak up. And and how. Can i speak up now and even getting maturity as birth worker. Yeah i cannot imagine going. In as a new dula and advocating. I mean that's just really. That's an overwhelming dot. I will say though that this comes up repeatedly and i am working on a basic advocacy course and haven't decided if it's going to be part of your rights if it's going to be an add on or if i'm gonna do it separately or whatever but i'm really excited about that. It is presented by a really experienced. Dula dula mentor who has developed and trademarked. This kind of concept of how dulas can teach their clients to keep their agency right and not hand off their power when emotional coercion is used or they're set While this is hospital policy this is how you have to do it. So i'm really excited about that. I think it's going to be an amazingly powerful tool. So i'm not sure when that will come out later this year at some point. But i think that's gonna be a game changer for a lot of people. It's really important to know your rights. But if you're not able to assert your rights then it doesn't really mean anything right so i'm really excited about that. The other thing that. I have coming out hopefully next month. If i can keep up with all these deadlines has to do with complaints. After something has happened yes yes. I'm updating a guide. I wrote years ago and adding a whole bunch of information and some other resources like interviews with doctors lawyers patient advocates on how to most effectively make complaints.

"Need to begin to take back our economy as women we thought so hard for reproductive rights for our working rights but yet when we become pregnant. It's like we turnover all of our economy. And whatever you say. I need to do for my baby and that needs to stop it needs to be more of a collaborative care that we women received absolutely and i think as women we have to take a little bit of the responsibility we have to take back our control and our power. We have to become educated. If you don't know where to begin where to start reach out to a dula reach out to a midwife do a meet and greet lot of bursts centers. A lot of midwives allotted dulas offer a meet and greet but remember their professionals. They're not just going to give away their time. So if you want to do a meet and greet say with a dula and she says. I would love to meet and greet with you. I charge twenty five dollars. We can meet at a starbucks. That shouldn't per office exactly that. That should give you a feeling of comfort. She is a professional. We have done this for years. We have been up for forty eight hours straight. I have been pushing with a mom for four plus hours having to go to the bathroom so bad having not eaten for you know sixteen hours knowing that i'm missing my daughter's choral concerts or scrambling to call a girlfriend. Take my daughter to get her hair done on for her. First prom and just trained. This mom would deliver. So i could make it home in time. Which by the way i did but it was not like i could rush this mom to deliver as just not how it happens in so when you have a dula that you're in and she charges you a fee for a meet and greet that's for one on one care professional care. That dula is on call for you. Pretty much twenty four seven for a whole month two weeks prior to your do day to the two weeks after your due date sometimes three for the birth center..

"If you mentioned the term dula to your parents chances are good. You will get a funny look. Why do you need a do they. May i ask why is it that more and more birthing partners are reaching out for the support of a dula as they prepare for birth and recover after baby. What has changed. This episode exists to help you understand. What a dula is trained to do and also served to spread awareness of these lovely professionals dedicated to supporting mums. And i think you'll start to understand. Why the need for their services is on the rise. I'm lucky to work in a community of amazing dulas value collaboration and holistic care a few years ago before we were living in a global pandemic. Several dulas in my community reached out with an interest in learning how they could better understand the pelvic floor. Many of their clients were seeking out pelvic floor physiotherapy during pregnancy and they wanted to learn how to best incorporate what the clients were learning in their sessions to their practice and messaging as dulas. Their curiosity is what encouraged me to create an online mini. Course called the pelvic floor. An online course for dulas and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. My guest today is one of these who inspired the collaboration. Aaron stoneman is a nurse. Local dula birth and mom of three. Our goal of this episode is not to say you need to have a dula as part of a recipe for a perfect birth. But rather that you deserve to know your options so you can make an informed decision to best support you. Let's chat. Welcome.

"It was definitely definitely experience. And i was thankful they were there. The one thing. I was interested to death dula and i hope i said that again but i i was was in your bio and i thought that was very interesting. I wonder if you can explain to me what that is. Okay i happen to be a nurse but death dulas. I'm i'm also trained as to long but you don't have to be a registered nurse to be a death dula. But i happen to me a buddhist monk when i was on the hospice team as a volunteer where my children were young. I knew i wanted to be in hospice care. So i volunteered. As on the hospice team hostage hospice chaplain was This wonderful person. Who is a buddhist mum and he wanted to help individuals who didn't have a family they. They didn't have friends to come and sit by their side. So a death dula is stays at bedside and is a companion is a witness to what's unfolding and keeps you company keeps you comfortable. Who's interesting too. Is a people like dying alone. I mean it doesn't sound a lot of fun. No no so so this. This particular buddhist monk witnessed that over and over again and he's one person he actually handpicked several volunteers and trained us along with a very seasoned a social worker hospice social worker. And everything he could think of which was important to be aware that you know the the idea of active listening very very important to listen to someone who's dying and not interrupt them you know completely be still and listening and actively listening is really quite a gift and some people really need to be coached on that and that would be an important talents of a dula to be able to actively listen with interest activists listeners. Somebody's talking with the pass on some of the. What is one common fiend i. I'm always been curious about this. What is when one common theme that people always talk about a subject or topic.

"Hundredth episode of the birthdays podcast. I had a bonus meditation in the beginning of the podcast and as this hundred episode has been approaching. I've been contemplating how i want to celebrate it. And what i wanna do for lay official number two hundred episodes and so recently i was really grateful to be featured on kisha lockets empowered black dula podcast and i also had her as a guest here on the birthdays podcast and you may have heard that episode a few weeks ago and as i listened to the conversation that i had with her on her podcast. I was just so grateful for how comfortable she made me feel. And how i was able to just dive into where my work has taken me as well as some of the insights that i've gleaned over these last twenty policy here's so i reached out to her and asked her if i could rear air that conversation to celebrate one hundred episodes of the podcast and she graciously said yes and so i thought it's a great way to also introduced listeners to me that may be newer to the podcast and i do want to mention though that it does discuss pregnancy and infant loss because that is part of my work. If you've been following this podcast along these hundred episodes then you know At and so if you're pregnant then the beginning of the conversation does start with that very topics. Starting with how. I was brought led to that side of my work and throughout the episode. There are a couple other moments in the conversation where we discuss perinatal loss once again and so please feel free to fast forward through that and the show notes. I will put the time in case you just want to know where to fast forward through it. Because he'd like to hear the rest of the conversation where we talk a bit about being dula and the nature of birth work. I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as i did again. She just really created this space for me to be very candid and for all of you who've been listening thank you. Thank you as i celebrate one hundred episodes..

"Yes what does that look like. It doesn't matter what it looks like to anybody. As long as you feel you have peace of mind in the processes that you've educated yourself and you've made the decisions which are best for you and baby. That's what's important to me. yeah me too. I remember having a dula client that we sat in chatted and then she had talked with her physician and she did have a lot of trauma and the decision was that the most compassionate thing for her in her baby's birth to have a positive birth experience was a plan syrian. And i really think it gets down to honoring people where they're at. Yes an honor yourself first and foremost and then surrounding yourself. Yes you know we talk about. Who's going to be supporting. You is finding that tribe that is going to be okay however you need to bring this baby or side right. That is very key and then strategies if have somebody. That isn't how you might even deal with that. You know yes yes that's a whole nother pocket. That's a whole nother podcast. Yeah and just feeling competent in ourselves and granting ourself grace. I've always thought that we put everything in place to get the birth that we want we can do the education. We do the classes. You do the preparation which choose the best caregiver for us. And then you have to surrender to the process. Yup because ultimately i do feel like the baby is in control of their birth. And so you. And i both know. Fear can influence the burs and so it sounds like you're really wanting to help families learn to navigate dot all of this and to learn to trust themselves absolutely. That's what this is all about. And it really is my heart's work on. Can you just love on yourself and feel like you're making the decision you need to. Because when someone doesn't and they beat themselves up and they second guess and they have all those thoughts and feelings around it that is just added stress and if we can.

"Next generation of parents are waking up to the fact that their needs are different from their parents. They don't have or wants big houses filled with stuff. They don't want thousands of dollars of baby gear. They want impactful gifts. They want people to take care of them people to cook meals for them. Teach them how to take care of their babies and make sure that their whole and healthy and supported as they welcomed baby into their lives but right now the existing gift registries don't address that they're filled with all kinds of stuff. I so much stuff and the stuff creates more stress rate. Your earnings trust because you have the sweet adore while lovely little newborn bundle. But it's hard to take care of a newborn and it's even harder when you have a house full of things to clean and dust to end launder and all of these gifts. Create more work for parents rather than easing their burden. So the idea is instead of a registry where you just get stuff for somebody a registry where you can pay for a night nurse or somebody to cook your meals after the baby's born or like a dula to be in the delivery room with you. That's that's basically what the idea is. That's exactly the idea. The bigger idea is that parents need to be cared for to take care of their babies and so instead of looking at babies as this individual little thing that needs their own items. We're looking at babies leading well-supported parents and we're getting gifts to make that happen so that the baby can have a better experience with parents that are fed and cared for and feel good caitlyn.

"Tanya thank you so much for joining me on the woman today. I'm so excited to speak with you. Happy to be here tiny. I think you are our first midwife on the podcast. You very cool yeah. I've had a couple of different fertility. Experts instead steph combat now knowing that's a certified nurse midwife so welcome as my first day. That's so cool. I always knew that you know women and children were going to be the focus of my nursing career. But before i fell into the nikki world i was definitely researching the nurse midwife route. 'cause berth itself is just so cool it is it is. I don't think anyone really gets it unless they're actually a delivery room. I i totally agree. And there's so much you just don't think about ever until you're pregnant. I mean i. I have a twenty year old at this point so my birth and i only have one child. Mike was a long time ago. But i am definitely one of those people that didn't think midwives existed when i was first pregnant. I really thought that you only heard midwife. In historical novels such And so such a learning curve for me to be pregnant. I was young. I was pregnant. But i was notably unhappy with my experience from the very first visit. There's gotta be a better way. And then i was in prenatal yoga class and heard somebody say midwife and my ears perked up it was like what is going over there and before you knew it. I was like sitting in the corner arms and noble reading every book. Get my hands on and kind of knew where i was going to go. Navigating a pregnancy and a new career path essay in time. But it's amazing. How many people. That don't know what a midwife is or if they do they think we only attend home births like all those minds of misconceptions that are you know fun to answer all this questions. So is that kind of what drew you into. Midwifery where are you a nurse. I already at this point or not. I went to performing arts high school. I moved to new york with the state. Can hundred bucks. When i was seventeen years old and then i was pregnant at nineteen years old. It was very sort of meant to be kind of situation. Like i never doubted the moment i was pregnant. I never doubted that thing never crossed my mind to do anything else. I've no judgments about what anybody does ever but for me it felt right even though it was really strange. I didn't think it was supposed to feel right. And you know very quickly. I realized that these two experiences. We're going to be very late to figure it out about midwifery. By the time. I was twelve weeks pregnant. And i was on a hat so like i was my first birth as a dula when i was six weeks postpartum and i went to a few births and i said screw it and i was a nursing school and then i got through nursing school with the sole intention of being a midwife by ban i needed to come up for air for a minute. Yes i waited. I worked for two years. The labor and delivery nurse waiting for my kid to be old enough to go to kindergarten and i went to midwifery school while she was intended artem in first grade. So that's that's how it all happen. So those two journeys were intimately linked for me. I'm going to sound just like alexis on shits creek. But i really loved this journey. Well kids. I can't say i know the reference because i tried to watch a few episodes of ships creek like when it first came out and for whatever reason i didn't get into it and everyone says how amazing it is and how the pandemic has changed the way the show comes across and i feel like i have to give it another. Go definitely definitely give it another go. I think the first time. I watched the whole season through or like the whole first thing like shits creek as a as a whole i am. I watched it all the way through. It wasn't really until the second season that i was like. Okay yeah i really get it. And then i just started rewatching watching it all again because it's sometimes need to turn on those. Those calming lake funny shows like parks and rec is gone off netflix. Now and i still have shits creek and meant just. It's great to have on during the day. And i'm just laughing but off now so i'm gonna have to give it another go with all my free time i would. So what was midwifery school like for you. Like what's all involved in that so midwifery school kind of ties into another big piece of my life. I think i guess. I tend to Dotson things at the same time. I so i went to nyu new york university for nursing. Okay and when it came time to go to midwifery school. I wasn't super excited about going to one of the campus based programs in new york like it wasn't about that i thought i wouldn't get a good education at all the new york based schools. But i knew that they would put me in a clinical site and that it wouldn't be my choice and i had really clear beliefs about time to wipe. I wanted to be and where i wanted to train. I had i gave for a free standing birthing center and i was really interested in doing center. Work home birth. Were all of that. And i just at the time did not really want to be in the hospital understandable. I figured out that there were some distance education programs. And that at some of the distance. Ed programs you actually had to find your own clinical site and while that might be a deterrent for some people for me gave me the freedom to figure it out

Malik ask gee-gee what music she wanted to hear and she surprised him by requesting the audio of favourite children's novel the indian in the cupboard. He downloaded the film because it was one of his favorites too and they spent the early hours of labor watching it together. That's something we'd never talked about.

Getting Through The Learning Curve by Kate Galliett

"Getting through the learning her by cake. Elliott of the unbreakable body DOT com. If you're going to gain any skill or ability. You'll go through a learning curve how much you feel that learning curve is dependent on two things you want to know what these two things are. So can work learning curve in your favor in the future. But I what's the learning curve? Here's the wikki quote. A learning curve is a graphical representation of how an increase in learning measured on the vertical axis comes from greater experienced the horizontal access or how the more someone or something performs a task, the better they get at it and quote. In. Slang often say that something difficult to learn has a steep learning curve with the implication that steep things hills feel difficult. But if you take a look at a steep curve on a graph and indicates, you're learning a lot in a short amount of time, which may or may not be difficult. Learning curve could be steep, shallow short or long, but only one thing really matters. How much do you feel the curve when you feel the curve, you know it you feel your deficiency in this skill or ability. When you feel the curve, you're more likely to become frustrated and you're more likely to quit before you get through the curve. To things influence how much you feel learning curve and if you use them to your advantage, you're going to navigate the curve better his worst understanding these two things because what other option do you have quitting? How much you feel learning curve is influenced by. Aptitude. Aptitude is your natural ability or skill you were born with it. If a learning curve is for a skill that is within your aptitude mule, likely only feel the learning curve minimally if at all his good capitalize on your natural aptitudes by learning skills at naturally fit with them. But if you only ever do things where you don't feel the learning curve, it's likely not expanding your abilities much aptitude is great but aptitude alone won't get you very far. We've all heard a story somewhere along the way where kid has a natural aptitude for sports or school, but doesn't put the work into better themselves, and then what happens all the other kids who weren't as naturally talented at that thing but who worked their tails off caught up in surpassed the natural talent in the end? You do not have aptitude for everything, and if you'd like to write yourself off because you don't have aptitude for something that's fine. You're overlooking something major you have aptitude for something and you can exploit that aptitude to get you through the learning curve of something else for which you have less aptitude. An example if your aptitude for public speaking is low, you get nerves. You've easily forget what you wanted to say big aptitude for things like mental imagery is high, you can easily picture things in detail in your mind you can exploit that to help you improve as a public speaker. There's a well known technique for doing just this rather than banging your head against the wall trying to become someone who's naturally talented at flowing through speech, you do this. Memory Palace. With this mental imagery technique, you imagine your own home or a similar place. You know well assigned key points or phrases in your speech to each place in your home who give your speech by walking through your house in your mind's eye and allowing your mental image of the Living Room. For example, to remind you of the key point you assigned to that room and the subsequent details that will come from that key point. By doing this, you put your aptitude in one arena to us to help you improve in another arena. Now. This sort of exploitation of aptitude will certainly make it feel more doable to get through a difficult feeling learning curve. But the second thing that determines how much you feel learning curve will be what gets us through or what becomes your undoing. How you interact with uncertainty Quote, pain, and pleasure govern us in all we do and always say in all, we think end quote. That line is from eighteenth, polymath Jeremy Bentham and outlines exactly what motivates we do in life, but which motivates you more avoiding pain or acquiring pleasure. Loss Aversion the tendency to prefer avoiding losses to acquiring equivalent gains has been well established. Most humans have some degree of loss aversion that influences how they act but there's a sizable degree of nuance within the realm of being motivated to avoid losses or acquire pleasure a two thousand seven study led by Russell a Paul drag professor of psychology at Stanford University found the following quote. We. Also found that individuals display varying degrees of sensitivity to loss aversion and these wide ranging neural responses predicted differences in their behavior for instance, people with stronger neural sensitivity to both losses in gains were more risk averse and quote. That is if your brain is more sensitive to losing and gaining, you're less likely to want to take a risk. Learning some new skill includes a degree of risk taking. There's no guarantee you're actually going to get or avoid the thing you are trying to get her avoid by learning the skill. You don't know yet. If it was well worth your time more a waste of time you aren't sure if it will work or if you'll get it or if you'll fail. And there's a second layer of wants to your loss aversion Dr draft shared a theory that losses may trigger greater activity in brain regions that process emotions such as the insulin amid Dula meaning if the parts of your brain where you process emotion namely the amid delays and the ensler become more active. When you experience a loss, you may be more likely to avoid putting yourself in a position where you could experience a loss. Interestingly, a middle damage has been shown to eliminate loss aversion with regard to money. This suggests that you're made Ila is a key player in how you handle loss aversion. Learning, a new skill requires a you accept the level of uncertainty. If you are someone who is less likely to bring uncertainty into your life by avoiding taking risks, you're more likely to feel the discomfort of learning curve does because learning curves include natural amplification of risk potential loss and uncertainty, which will trigger your brain in different ways than someone else's brain might be triggered. You can imagine how this could influence how a learning curve feels to. You not only is your brain dealing with the neural activity of the actual learning of this new skill. You're also dealing with really feeling the fear emotion or discomfort of being in risk-taking waters deeper than you prefer. and. So to navigate your next learning curve in a way that feels more doable and less like you should quit because it's just too much. It really comes down to understanding yourself better. Where do your natural aptitudes lie and how can you put them to work for you in arenas where you don't naturally excel? How do you interact with other entity? How much are you motivated by loss aversion? Learning new skills is awesome feeling like you suck ms not awesome. Take some time to learn about your own personal nuances in these realms and put what you've uncovered into your next learning curve. Then let me know what new skill you've acquired from doing so

The Doula Life with Interview by Jess Gronas

"So, just kind of. All these different snippets I feel it kind of led me to to wear with the Dula stuff in it was just the last. This last year that I started doing it fulltime I always did it kind of part time taking on birth here in their bouquets making many as adults is really hard. When you're starting out starting out a business, you have to find clients you are. A you know. Especially, if people have kids, you need to find child care and for me it was like, okay. Even if I find some clients enough to pay my bills I still have my job but I can't just call out of my job whenever I want when somebody goes into Labor you know so I would kind of take on like. Last year I. Think. I did five like I took like five birth rate. Need you have to be available? Twenty four seven, right. So. But I still needed a fulltime job. I was living downtown Chicago rent's not cheap saving up for a wedding. So. So I, just kind of dabbled in it and then it was. This. Last year that unlike. Okay. I'm going to focus on the podcast in on birth work. So In my thing with the podcast too was I wanted to empower women through storytelling it education people to listen to the podcast. was into different experts in different topics in different stories, women who have had different experiences so that you don't feel isolated in motherhood or in your story so that you can still feel and be a part of community and with the educational aspect it's fun for me because I'm learning but also so people know their options you know that. I've never thought about. Birth control display like we recently did an episode with Natural Family Planning which I've never done but I'm like it sounds really cool I don't know how to do it. So spun talking to somebody who that's what she and her husband used for eight years. Then she used it to get pregnant and through the process she wanted so much broader body about her cycle and her healthy ben in. So it's just kind of fun hearing from different people. To that you know okay if me and my husband after this baby, we don't have a kid. For a while. We have. Never considered this before, but maybe it is an option or now I know more information about this one thing. So that agonists make a better decision for myself and my family. Yeah and you've got a lot of awesome experts on the show in powerful women earn hiring women as well. Just sharing their story I've loved that What made you I think like I wanNA. Create a podcast. I. Mean it started. I it was something I wanted to for quite a while and then I partnered with a couple of other people for the first year a bit and they were new moms I worked as a Dula. So it was like, okay. You guys can talk about your mom experience in all kind of be the Dula on the show. And then after a year, it was just kind of going our separate ways and I'm like I really want this to be empowering. You know I want I don't want to necessarily be about. US just talking it's like I. Had the opportunity to do it on my own, and that's when I created miraculous Mama's it was like a little over a year ago. I'm like I really want this to be. To. Really dive into that community to really. Like for me it's it's it's nice to get people from all different walks of life form. But may focus wasn't like. Just, get somebody famous on which I felt like it kind of wants full or in now it was like, okay. But what are they gonNA talk about like what they offer Get somebody, who has experienced source story to share and Sony really wanted to turn it more educational and bring on more experts and specialists. So it was cool because I gotta talk to one of the top infertility doctors in the world he lives in Chicago they went downtown to his office than he so cool Bryan, Caplan, and. Actually Madame my work when I was working downtown. So There's just a small role in like your podcast. So it was it was nice to then be able to. To focus on. Just the learning part because. Although like do are concerned Labor experts. So when you're in labor, we know how what your body's doing, what it's going through the signs to look for when there are different interventions that happen were there to bounce the ideas off of you to talk about okay. Are you comfortable with this? Like are you do need a minute to think it over like Salat? You've blake when the doctor comes in and it's like, okay I think we need to do this. Now you have to give an answer nuclear what kind of I need a little bit of time to think it over and figure out what all my options are so but I'm definitely not an expert in other fields. So it's nice to be a part of this learning process case than. Right when the started a just gotten married and I'm like, okay no veto I wanNA start a family soon. So I wanNA bring on tons of people so that I can learn so that we can be prepared in new so many other women. Were on that journey as wall.

The Midwifery Model of Care with Sarah Stetina, CNM

"I would love to dive into. The training and education. So I know that there's different kinds of midwives but in order to practice in Illinois, you have to be CNN correct yes. Currently certified nurse Midwives at the only legal provider in Illinois but there's more than just two midwife types and that's kind of what makes midwifery kind of confusing or there's a lot of misconceptions about midwifery because there's so many different entries. So the first obviously as nurse Midwifery, that's what I am, and it made the most sense for me to choose nurse Midwifery because like I said I didn't learn about midwifery until was already in nursing school. So it made sense to go on and get my master's degree and specialize in midwifery, and so that row is a master's degree. It can also be a doctorate degree and it's similar to a nurse Practitioner which also masters program but you you have the same education to a certain point and then they branch off until your specialty. So you could be a needle natal nurse practitioner. You could be acute care nurse, practitioner, family nurse Practitioner. Nurse unnecess- or a nurse midwife. All of those things are kind of in the same level. Just our specialty that that varies. And so that was my education. was going to finish my masters degree doing clinicals and didactic and. Doing births and all being clinic and office visits and learning all the skills, and then you have to sit for a national. Certifying exam. And Pass that to become certified and then you have to apply for licensure in your state. So there are other routes there's also certified midwives which are Also. Take US certifying national exam. And may go through an accredited program, but they're not nurses I and it's not a masters of nursing degree at summit where free degree that isn't legal in every state. There's certain states that allow certified midwives and then the third is the certified professional midwife, which is also certified by a national exam and there are midwifery programs for CPM's or certified professional midwives. But they're not recognized every state. I, think it's up to like thirty two states now that recognized CPM's most of them work. In out of hospital setting wall nurse midwives typically work in hospital settings, but it can vary depending on the state. and certified professional midwives spent a lot of time in an apprenticeship without of hospital midway experienced midwives learning that in addition to their. Schooling. So very comparable it's just the model pathway that you want to enter midwifery. And then there's traditional midwives which maybe don't take a certifying exam don't. Have a license and have learned midwifery from being passed down through generations, and that's how midwife midwifery kind of started in the United States. And there's a lot of wisdom to be gained from traditional midwives but. The country doesn't usually recognize them as. Legal providers. Yeah do would you say that there is a lot of misconceptions around education as a midwife Oh yeah. I think a lot of people think you don't know what you're doing. Oh Yeah. I, think a lot of people don't realize they compare us with Dulas. People ask me all the time oh you deliver babies no. When I tell them I'm like, oh so like a Dula and I'm like well, no. And they're you know it's so interesting. Once, I learned everything about midway free. You just assume that everyone else is going to figure it out to which obviously is not the keys I was in nursing school didn't know what Wise Ray but that campaign in the nineteen hundreds that kind of. Discredited midwives which was led by the. Physicians and Medical Association to get people to him birth in a hospital. The kind of told the story that midwives were dangerous and an educated and not safe, and that is a really successful campaign because it is still prevalent in in the way that people think about midwives today and so I'd say whether you're CPM Siham, 'em or a CNN. Or choosing those providers most of them are very very educated and have a lot of knowledge and our experts at normal physiological birth. and. Midwives nurse midwives. In particular can we can prescribe we can order imaging, we can do lab work, we can manage normal guy any staff so whether that's a PAP smear. Cycles birth control throughout the life span. And I don't think people realize that we don't just do pregnancy and birth you can come see me for anything that you'd go see an ob for for the most part, and if it's out of my scope, I'm going to refer you appropriately in in there are levels of of scope of practice but. Yet for most. People you can see a midwife for pretty much everything related to reproductive health, right which leads us to another misconception. Because honestly I didn't really know that before. My introduction midwives was my sister when she was pregnant with her oldest who's twelve now. She didn't plan on using a midwife. She had some crazy thing happen. With her insurance, dropped her because her doctor mixed up her medical records and then they went take her and she got pregnant. No insurance started looking at alternative methods and found this midwife. And ended up doing an at home birth in that was my first. Experience seeing a birth and just fell in love with that and she ended up having all four of her kids at home. And I also dislike fell in love with her midwife she's she was doctrine Venezuela she studied birth the Amazon she came to the states started this practice and very wise. Gosh, she's so amazing and And so it's cool because then became a delay gotta work with her with some other berths to. But before that. Also, I. Yeah. You just you picture a midwife it's a home birth. It's You know. And that's all they do is birthing right and obviously now that I know it's like. I'm going to. Be Used mid wife's for the rest of my life. I'm like in menopause you know what I mean. I can still go to them not just when I'm having a baby you can have that relationship based care that really holistic approach in every aspect of your healthcare pretty much, and we're trained as a nurse midwives trained in primary care as well. So basic primary care, your annual exams, even just a asthma management simple things we are very capable and entering. To to manage as well and for for the the myth that midwives only do home birth that's really prevalent. I. Tell people a midwife and they immediately assume that I'm delivering babies at home which there's nothing wrong with that obviously uses your head a wonderful home breath but you can buy midwives in literally every setting whether it's home birth centers, hospitals clinics. Federally, Qualified Health Centers Academia doing research. You know we're we're everywhere that a physician might be

Alexius' Story

"I'm Martina. Abraham's Linga welcome back to NATO I have to be honest with you before we started the show I rarely thought about giving birth my indifference turned to fear and anger when I started to understand more about the American medical system and when I became aware of the Blackburn in crisis specifically like most people I assumed if and when my time came to have a baby, I'd go to the hospital I began to fear for mine and my future children's safety and grew angry at the idea that had have to settle for care that's less than I desire. Deserve. I started to question whether I wanted to have children at all the beautiful thing about my journey with natal is that I learned about an entire community that centers blackburn parents and their babies. I'm now more familiar with a network of midwives, dulas, providers, and healers who affirm the dignity and beauty in black breathing and intimately value black-eyed. Due to the history of anti-black blackness in the obstetrics and gynecology field. Much of their work happens outside of hospital I'd seen photos and videos of women all white giving birth in pools and at home. I assume all hippy dippy white people ship turns out. I was very wrong. In this episode, we leave the hospital and step into the world of home. Births. We also dive into the work of Dulas, like Charlie, Louis anderly the owner of Brooklyn based practice nor shing seats Dula. To begin to understand the role dualist play in pregnancy and childbirth. Let's start first with the story of Alexis Him. Some Alexi I am a Smith AC- native where my fiance and I live currently right now I'm training to become a Hamburg worker and I'm proud to say the coast model and this is my natal story. So that was pregnant was extremely interesting is so aware because. I keep up period Alabama foul and I'm looking at it like okay. Says on today's late this is not normal like mockery combs all the time in the night before at noticed the The second day late I was drinking I was having fun. Don't think I will up just like, okay. Today's is enough women is so I went to dollar tree The dollars as at the the tests that you put a little drop singing in wait for the line changes to it. So I dropped the little year in air in the I got one lot I'll say, okay, I'm not pregnant at this point I'm convinced that there is no baby in there. I'm in the one line was just mother -cation. I'm not pregnant sats to those once I got the one line I was the instructions clearly say that you have to wait I think about three minutes once I felt they line I was like, okay. Throw it away. So two more days game. And I'm like, okay. Until my boyfriend at the time like, okay four days is enough. I'm usually on copy now something is not right whale. I couldn't say that this was like something in my body changing or anything of that nature because I knew what took place prior to me semi period but also needed took a plan B. in our secure. This was everything that was a Mama. So. On the fourth day are caught. Another just like is not here. He's like you can come to my job stopping at apprentice in you can come here to take it I'm like, okay. Cool outcome there to do this. So I went into the restroom appeared on the State Ama- body like. It almost showdown at started shaking him. So like all my guy, it says positive if this point I'm scared I'm crying he was like you know go ahead and take the second one is at the second test in it said the same thing. So once I realized that he really decide positive I'm just like, what are we going to do? What do you mean we gotta do you know we're gonNA. Have a baby like it's Okay Hook. He gave me a hug AMC that was the in Twenty Sixteen Alexis was twenty three and still figuring out what you wanted to do in life. She was young and just having fun with her friends and now Fiance Cortez babies and parenthood weren't even a real thought even though she made up her mind Alexis didn't feel ready to share the news with her family little. Did she know they were already in on the secret? The funny thing about the stories that my sister knew that I was pregnant before I'd eat in that because. She was snooping garbage game. In those tested I thought were negative were actually reading positive, but I didn't wait for them to finish position. So how long they home to retrieve the man the garbage gain in Norberto they were definitely positive days. So they had sports as total. They revealed that I was pregnant and I didn't even know I can remember going at you mom if this. Already tell. In I'm just the one at the table this like awkwardly trying to not eat the. 'CAUSE I didn't want my mom to now that I was pregnant at the moment. I want to give her time. Alexis needed time to she hadn't fully wrapped her mind around what it meant to be pregnant. She recently started working as a receptionist choices a reproductive health services clinic choices provides everything from abortion to HIV, testing services to midwifery care. Alexis had options. So yeah. I had the choice to continue on my pregnancy abortion is something that I do think that it's easy choice I'm pro-choice. So you know but I knew my situation that it wasn't GonNa be something that I wanted to do basically because my boyfriend at the time we have been together for a while in knew that he wanted to Kate I was associated but I knew as speaking about abortion wasn't any wasn't a topic for us. actually when I told him, he was like on with whatever you want and I'm just like Ricky Ready. So although choices offer termination services in that wasn't something that I decided to do I was able to meet individuals that would still provide me prenatal

"Before we dive into the interview with her, we're going to continue our little. Introduction. Birth plans series we've talked about preparing for your GB as test. We've talked about Bernie we've talked about all sorts of different things and today. I'm just going to touch on delayed cord clamping because it is something. So as a Dula. I started practicing in Vegas years ago, and at the time, not one provider would do it and it is something that is very beneficial for your children. And now more research is coming out saying that it is. Something that you should definitely consider putting in your birth plan and talking to your provider about so. According to. The. Pregnancy Association. It. Can Be very beneficial when he will allow the cord to. You don't clamp right away and you allow it to pulse for twenty five seconds up to five minutes after giving. Birth it allows blood to transfer from the placenta to the baby. Sometimes increasing the child's blood volume by up to a third there's tons of amazing iron stores in there. which is really good for healthy brain development also according to the a dot Org, which is the American College of obstetricians and gynecologists. It talks about how? DELETE UMBILICAL CORD clamping increases haemoglobin levels at birth in improved iron stores in the first several months of life, which may be very favorable for developmental outcomes. It can prevent NIMIA. A lot of kids can sometimes be Nimick in the first six months of life and with delayed cord clamping. Less and less, but with any decision you're making. It's also really important to know Not only benefits but the the potential risks and things like that. The only downside that they can see is that sometimes there is a small increase in John. Indus that might require therapy. In a certain group of infants. So there's the benefit of getting all that extra blood in iron stores and that helps with brain development and preventing anemia. But there is a very slight increase chance of having jaundice. So I can actually say in all my years practicing for anybody who has done it I have not seen jaundice case but I know that that research is out there that does back that. So as long as you have the information to. Make the best decision for yourself and for your family and have this conversation with your healthcare provider that to me I feel like is what counts I know that something that we're planning on doing it's a standard practice where. I am delivering so and we do touch on it. Next week a midwife is going to be on and she's going to just touch on it briefly, but I just wanted to go over the. So few are making your birth plan. Definitely look into delayed cord clamping I'm going to leave the links to these articles. In today's show

CBT Center is where you can find her. Online. Dot Com she's the founder she's a US ideas. Psychologist and she has three relationship books acceptance and commitment therapy for couples acceptance and commitment therapy interpersonal problems. And interpersonal problems workbook Abby walpin program. Thank you. I'm excited to be here. So he two things I WANNA do today. So People talk about CBT all the time, right I always find that I ended up waving my hands and CBD practitioners Kinda grandmothers a workbook. We change your thinking and there's lots of sort of vague descriptions of would see bt is so one thing I'd love to do a little bit today is you to do some CBT on me? Yes yeah, okay and and just Today to in the middle is Kobe or a perfect data dulas DVD. Yeah. Yeah it is. But this this situation is pretty depressing. Yes. Yes. Now already started working on me but. Before we do that. I WanNa talk a little bit about acceptance and commitment there. What is that? Acceptance and commitment therapy takes its third wave behavioral therapy. So on the more third wave, cvt therapies take a more acceptance and mindfulness based approach. So rather than challenging thoughts too much they help us create some distance from plots and mindfulness and be able to diffuse from thoughts that they're not pulling us towards certain behaviors. Thoughts have less power. In. Controlling our behaviors. Zooming you example would be your in conflict with somebody and you have to become aware of your thoughts and how they're affecting the conflict. How is it different than dialectical behavioral therapy where you're trying to pull in your thoughts and awareness of the other person's thoughts and feelings right. Right, well, dialectical behavioral therapy is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy. So there's like a cognitive behavioral therapy umbrella. Cognitive behavioral therapies a DVD t would be one of them act would be one of them. emotions compassion focused therapy would be one of them or functional analytic psychotherapy would be one of them. So there's a lot of. Therapies that are considered to be more behavioral. Like psycho dynamic therapy is not so much behavioral. It's more insight focused and cognitive behavioral therapies more behaviorally focused. We do techniques and exercises under certain thoughts and feelings act as barriers to. to actions to behaviors. So it's not so much like figuring something out or having insight about something. It's more about practicing certain skills that help you change your behaviors, the fourth component for form. Therapy functional analysis which called. ME. What does that? Functional analytic psychotherapy is a form of behavioral. It's it's a very behavioral intervention where you're thinking about your own behaviors as a as a therapist what are some behaviors that you want to do more of or less of, and you're thinking about your clients cavers and you're doing a lot of. Against punishment and reward in your own interactions as to shape behaviors

Healing Yourself and the World with Meditation

"Hi Rebecca. Welcome to the House Meditations podcast. Hello, how are you good? Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to come onto the podcast? It's my pleasure. becks as a as a mother of five now a birth Dula and Meditation Yoga Guy You. You teach you write a lot about. Managing the mother lode. In fact, it was the title of one of your books. the motherload, so I'd like to start our conversation there. Okay, about tools. And methods that you teach in these times where? Our anxiety over health, the the the political divine racial tensions are just causing so much stress. And I saw a recent video that you posted Were you spoke about managing our expectations or managing your own expectations? And as this podcast is about meditation about the internal work that we do within the process of Meditation I want to ask you to first define what you mean by. By managing our own expectations. And secondly how we use meditation and contemplation to do that so I'm going to jump right in by making a statement that is incredibly important to me as a teacher as a healer someone who is an activist in the social of political racial justice, arenas citation is a political act so always naming where an idea or a thoughts or a teaching came from so this idea of managing expectations came from one of my teachers. Dr Ron Tonia. Pollens. Who in? A Beautiful Guide for me who I've known for a little while, but has recently become someone I considered to be a mentor, and it was through a personal struggle that she guiding me to manage my own expectations, which is so funny, because I teach about managing stress I, teach about managing like how busy schedules are overwhelmed, but I wasn't really practicing myself for a moment in this in the late so. The So. My practice allays is we'll let me define meditation for you. Really quick is according to me according to sit work as a meditation as a way for me to show up for myself to say hey I. See you. I recognize that you're thinking feeling person who deserves to be heard who deserves to be seen who deserves might time, and it's also a way for me to connect with truth, which is the truth of the moment what is happening energetically for me physically for me and then also what's happening in my environment, so it's really sitting in quiet contemplation for. For the purpose of self reflection, and then also connection, which truth and you know being there, it's a it's an act of self love being there for myself so. When I sit in meditation, it is not to cure anything. It's not to fix anything. It's to communicate with myself so that I can find answers on how to act outside of meditation to find. The cure the remedy or even the method to be able to move through stress and what I had been doing recently was sitting in meditation. Connecting with my truth, and then going out in the world and Practicing something that was outside of my truth, which was trying to change instead of trying to change myself. So I was pro. into this like active space and focused on changing the minds of others. Really investing in the impact of changing others instead of investing in what I can do, and that was leading me to a lot of overwhelmed frustration heartbreak. Really this this deep disappointment, so go back to where you. Can Ask right there. Were you You were deeply disappointed in that? People weren't seeing things the way that you wanted to see them or say things or do things or change in this. In his very divided society that we have right now. Is that all of that? It was this sense of urgency. And not being able to. Not being able to. Deal with the incredible that that sense of urgency was creating in me wall seen people not have that same sense of urgency like not doing what I thought they needed to be doing and that was It's really. It's a practice in self. Defeat is a practice in of destruction, because in not in in. Making my expectations, not managing my expectations meaning connecting with the reality of what I can expect. I was setting myself up for so what I learned. With Dr Franconian what she reminded me of that I already knew was. Not to give up hope not to be pessimistic, not to be cynical, but to understand where my energy should be invested and what I can expect from that investment,

C-Section Awareness Month

"Is c-section awareness month and we haven't talked about it yet guys so. I just realized it's the end of April. I literally have no concept of time right now. My niece asked me the other day she goes. Hey what's the day today as April eighth and she looked at me and she goes. It's the fourteenth I was like. Oh my bad I was so off and I still continued to be often. I feel like with this especially with the quarantine and happening. It's so hard to keep track of time but we have C-section awareness month this month. So I want to start just by saying that. I know there's a lot of mommas in my life and so many Mama's that are listening who have had C. Sections and. I really really hope that you've never been made to feel less than or that. You haven't had that conversation with your self filling less than because birth is birth. And you still are mom. You carry that baby. You still have that baby and it's I mean for me. It's incredibly courageous to have your body cut open to save your life to save your baby's life what whatever it may be that is. That's major abdominal surgery to have your child so I think that sometimes there could be a division between the way that things are worded with with moms like natural birth or you know whatever it may be and and I think some of that you know just kind of needs to be put aside just your mom and and I know every single mother that I know would do absolutely anything for their children and are so extremely happy that they were blessed with them and got to help them. So a C section awareness month is also just raising owners around Caesarean so in the United States about one in three births and in a C. section. And there's been a lot of studies and things done to show that about. Fifty percent of those are preventable. And a huge part of being able to prevent that is by Educating Yourself. By knowing your options by knowing what's going on even having a Dula present decreases your risk of C-section by twenty eight percent and a huge part of that is because we equip you with tons of tools and knowledge and education however C sections are an amazing thing that saves lives and is very medically necessary but it is highly overused in the United States. And we do have very high maternal death rate here as well compared to a lot of other countries so there is a lot that goes into it so I would just encourage women if you're pregnant or planning on becoming a mom does do a lot of your lottery. Research to equip yourself. Obviously there's people who elect to have them in that totally your choice in totally up to you but if that's something that you hope to avoid there is a lot of education that you can do. I encourage you to take any sort of childbirth class whether it's spinning babies or birthing from within has a bunch of great ones. The Bradley Method Hypno- birthing. All of these courses are Gopi with tools and education resources. Going into it and help you to to better prepare yourself your body and going in knowing that you have a voice in that you have options again. There are absolutely times that it's medically necessary and it saves lives and it's so important and I'm so glad that c-section aren't option and that they do exist but part of spreading the awareness is also spreading their research behind it. And I just want you guys to be equipped in knowledgeable but also don't carry any guilt. Don't feel bad if you have had one and if you know if you wish that you know there's so many things that you can use to work through as well there. There is birth trauma and there are a lot of things that come with it. So you know if you did have a C. section. You're really really struggling with how your birth experience went. I just encourage you to to find help to reach out to somebody whether it's a postpartum. Dula or a maternal health guidance. Counselor somebody to help you work through that because you'll find a lot of healing in in you'll get some resources on how to feel empowered in your experience in your birth because you you're are awesome and and there's so much that so many other things in our lives that that are gonNA knock down as you know as MOMS and and trying to figure this out so so being confident in who. You are feeling empowered in your birthing experiences so important and then that leads into feeling powered as a mom and into motherhood and in just goes into other areas of your life so if you are struggling definitely reach out to somebody because you're not alone a lot of women have been there before. I know you could even talk about it in our facebook group. I know a lot of women are so open to sharing their experiences on there as well. I just salute all of you. C-section Mamas who wear your stripes proudly. You guys are

Postpartum in a Pandemic

"So I want to start with your pregnancy I'm wondering given your knowledge and your profession as a Dula when you're pregnant with soula. What were some of the things that you're doing to advocate for yourself and prepare for the postpartum time. I think that I was concerned about possibly getting postpartum depression just because I do have a history of depression and I had to get off of my antidepressant when I was pregnant. Because it wasn't safe for the baby and I was just looking for whatever type of body type therapy alternatives that I could find so acupuncture was really helpful for that and then I also Was in therapy with two different therapists by felt like I worked really hard and my pregnancy to ensure that I had the mental health support that I felt like I needed And Not a part of that was going on a second part of that. Was Me heavily planning the postpartum time in order to prevent not that you can prevent postpartum depression but in my brain in order to prevent it from happening? I'm heavy planner and I'm like if I plan everything and organize everything and get support that I need and I'm not like isolated by myself in those early weeks than you know things are GonNa go better and so Yeah I was and so am very concerned about mental health in this postpartum time. And what else did you know about postpartum mood and anxiety disorders going in? I feel like people a little bit like no about postpartum depression but I feel like the broader public doesn't necessarily have all the knowledge about the different ways that that can look. Well I think one thing too is definitely left out of the discussion is postpartum anxiety. I everybody instantly goes for depression. But a lot of people have postpartum anxiety and it presents and like so many different ways that there's not even like one like by the rule book they can look because everybody's anxiety shows up differently and I feel like postpartum anxiety is harder to pinpoint because as a new parent. You're already so anxious. A lot of the things that it says like the book say about postpartum anxiety about like watching the baby when the Baby Sleeps. And like you think the telling bad. It's going to happen to the baby and all that like that's just being a new parent in general so it's really hard to lockdown when that becomes more excessive so feeling that goes under diagnosed and Under reported a lot and a lot of people don't get support around because people don't know what's normal and what's not so. I felt lake as much information as I knew about postpartum depression. I was not prepared for postpartum anxiety as much as I should have been and I feel like that has been what has like cut more into play then. The depression Yeah so and I know you had your own Dula. Ns what were some of the things that Dula was helping you do My postpartum duly came to my baby shower and basically pasta out a notebook to everybody so that they could sign up for jobs for postpartum and at first. I didn't WanNa do it because I just felt like. I didn't WanNa like ask my friends that bluntly to be like hey can you? Guys take my trout and dishes but Actually had several friends after the baby shower. That were like that was so cool that year. Postpartum Dula did that. And they're like I always wanNA like support friends. That have a baby but I never know what to do. I also like this idea of asking people to show up in this time because this is not meant to be done alone and even for people who are single and are people who choose to be single parents or whatever like it's you're never supposed to like parent alone. They're supposed to be a community aspect to all of this. Yeah definitely definitely and so you know you come home from the hospital. It's an February beginning of March. Were still a couple of weeks away from the CDC announcing that there's a pandemic and so what was that first week at home like the first week was like everything that I have planned with my Dulas. It was Me being fed and people bringing me drinks and you know. Stang over to help with the baby and my postpartum do alike. Massaging my body. Because I was so swollen from the birth and it felt amazing that basically like I pulled off Lake. It actually worked. They actually showed up and I'm really grateful for that. Everybody was kind of like on a schedule of like who could do what when and who do overnight and stuff and it was really nice for like a week and a half to have that and to have them coming over in helping me get a break and Just like Lebanon us and everything and then this corona Situation hit and yet kind of all went out the window. She felt prepared to be a single mom. But not like this after about a week of being homeless soula. The governor of New York City put a stay at home order in place and all the people that were supposed to show up. Couldn't come anymore. We're stuck in isolation and that's not something. I would really wish on anybody that was in the immediate stages of postpartum or really just in parenthood in general It sucks. I don't even know how to describe it because it's like the exact opposite of what is needed during this time So many people were ready and willing to show up. It is nice that we have that support system and that when this is over we will still have that to rely on people. Were jumping on soon. Calls like nonstop and like doing like zoom hang outs and all these like zoom events. And I'm just like where was this energy before when you know we were all so busy with our lives constantly and so I like do like that. We've been told to slow down and like forced to talk to each other. I do hope that after this whole thing is over or whatever life looks like when it's over. I hope that like people continue to show up with the same energy and like really show up for each other

"A Dula is someone who supports another person through a significant health related related event the most common being a birth Dula. But there's another kind of Dula a death Dula. They help people through the end of life transition. My Kelly's an elder from the Schwab Hamill first nation and he is a death Dula. He joins me from Vancouver. Welcome Mike Thank you Wonderful trip down here in coming weather so this is a field that I never heard of before. Can you tell me what a death Dula. Dad's we as first nations people. We've been doing it for while myself. I've been doing it for almost half of my life on ready to Help the people crossover back into the spirit world way. And how do you do that through prayer and encouragement and Just making sure that they're comfortable with the prayers say always one hundred percent feel better after prayer in in a few words. So how did you get into this field of work back in seventies here when I changed my life into Christian life and started from there just doing funeral sedan after that asked go. Pray the people on her deathbed in hospital sending Zenden at just transpired from there So how do you incorporate your first nation culture into your practices at as Death Dula. It's pretty similar to what a death Dula does today. I go in and talk to the family and make sure that I can go in and talk to their loved one. That's laying there and pray with them. Talk to them. Encourage them narrow that there's life after the deaths and stuff like that and help them to let go of their fear and doubt and what's going to happen to them after the leave this physical plane. Is there kind of ceremony that that That you take people through everything we do with prayer and encouraging me is ceremony. I mean that's what I call her then as I talk to them I pray with them and sometimes I do the hands hands on healing tennis similar to Ricky. We do that kind of work to and that alleviates. Lots of the pain and fear that they have after I get done praying with them and encouraging them they always say way I feel better. I'm not so frayed today. Now it's it's all positive encouragement and a prayer and offering for their goal is a good place to after they leave the physical plane of life. So when you're taking people through this process what kinds of things do you do you. Tell them to to ease their pain or ease their krief. They're going to a place where there's no more pain. No more sorrel All of the Christians they call them angels and US as native people we call them ancestors and we meet all of our ancestors on the other side and they're singing and dancing missing while we're over here on this site Mourning and weeping.

Nurses Are A Mom's Best Friend With Maternity Nurse Katie Verbesy

"Lena. Mom is the toughest job there is and it doesn't come with instructions so it's okay if you don't have all the answers. We'll figure it out together this. This is mom brain for the LARREA Baldwin Daphne us. Hey guys welcome back to mom brain. I'm ILARIA and I'm Daphne and today we have a episode for you where I am on maternity leave but Alario is having an amazing conversation with Labor and maternity nurse so today's Today's acne. We talked with Katie Versi who is a nurse at the hospital that both you and I delivered at I've had for I believe three out of my four our kids you know I have to say the the experience of giving birth is just because I'm the reason I'm not in the conversation fully today's because I'm actually home on maternity. Leave and it's funny because people keep asking you know how houses pregnant pregnancy been different than others and you know. Are you nervous for to give birth and all of this and it's like it's weird. Policy just does not let you fully remember all the details of any process of any part of this I wish I was more diligent about journaling but I just don't have time so could someone get me a third and fourth and to please stay there by journaling and a few extra hours during the day hours during the day although I it was really good for a while but voice notes to myself which which had helped but in any case you'll hear in this episode how soothing and Calming Katie Gruber See who will we hearing from is but she is just. It's just an example of how important the the great care around you when you're giving birth is excellent art guys this. I hope you enjoy this conversation with Katie. Silly Mommy got the gig okay. Can you please introduce yourself. My name is Katie Verb. AC- and I've been a maternity nurse for ten years in New York City. What exactly is maternity nurse so a maternity nurse. Their maternity nurse is on the different stages of your Labor Labor and delivery nurse which is the more common nurse it was heard of the nurse sets with you during the Labor but then after you have the baby for the two to three days that you're saying at at the hospital you have what we call a post partners and that just means that's the nurse takes care of you in the period after you have the baby so we help you with breastfeeding and teaching and just all the stuff that happens after baby that you don't know anything and you need someone to be there with you. The entire twenty-four hours doing all the teaching and helping thing just make you be less scared. Now is so funny you're so stressed and focused on the actual delivery any idea everything whoever whoever like no one told me any event always tell your friends or I tell my patients. Tell your friends about after stuff because it's the stuff you don't know and it's the stuff that's going to be what you need for after es tell your friends and then they won't feel alone when Carmen was born. I was so focused on the delivery and then I'll say everything will be find when she's out and everything is like how exactly to keep this thing alive. Oh my God all right so i WanNa talk to you a little bit about some of the things that you Komo women will experience as say it's my first my first child and I have my my baby and everything goes as planned but what are like really common surprises that that women have after you know giving birth. I think one of the biggest things that mom's experiences not understanding. How difficult breastfeeding is that breastfeeding. Yes it's natural that your breasts produce milk but short of that so much of it is a learned experience and based on how the babies are and how the moms are and feeling comfortable. That breastfeeding takes time. There's a reason that seventy five percent of my job as a nurse is helping with breastfeeding. There's a reason we have lactation consultants that come and visit you in the room and breastfeeding class but I think the biggest thing is understanding that if you do want to breastfeed that it more often than not can take a few weeks to really get established tablet and I think everyone has this idea in their mind for movies and seeing their friends when the babies are months old breastfeeding with absolutely no problem and people I think as baseline from what I've seen is that mom's always are going to feel like they're not doing everything right because they see everyone else doing it and everyone else seems like they're doing it easy but it's not easy for everyone. It's my first experience with breastfeeding is that breastfeeding was more painful than all of it. Avi I opted for an epidural with all of them with all of my births and I did a lot of the laboring until the last one you know without an epidemic in the last one. I was induced but I I have to say that those like contractions that you get when you get the letdown. breastfeeding are like no joke doc really really really. Yes and that's another thing that moms will say to me after is that they're in so much pain so with every after you have the baby has to shrink back down to its original size so that that you're not bleeding so with every baby every pregnancy recipient stretched out that many more time so your body has to work that much harder to shrink back down so I've had people that have had certified six seven kids that say the Labor at the contractions after the Labor is worse than the Labor itself. I completely agree with you. That's got an amazing thing. I mean people talk about. How breastfeeding helps you get back to original size. I think one of the reasons it is is the contractions that the uterus is having you'll this is I mean. This is mom rain so we get. Berry you know into the the gruesome for parts but it makes you really bleed and get rid of you know the blood that you need to get rid of so when every single time that your your body will have a letdown. which is you know for? Those of you. Guys who are pregnant and you know thinking about breastfeeding or you know didn't breastfeed one time around and next time so basically you know once. The milk starts like squirting. That's what it's called. That's what the letdown is that that is a contraction in the uterus that there's a there is a relationship relationship between the letdown and your uterus that am. I saying this right you yeah. You're the what the the like the science behind it. So most people have heard of Potosi. That's often given to you while you're in labor. Tell Labor progress shooters contract so when you breastfeed after the baby your body releases a natural form of Potosi called Oxytocin so every time you're breastfeeding oxytocin is released in your body. It does three things it makes you crampy. which is the body's natural way of preventing you from hemorrhaging because here we have chosen to give to patients after but in third world countries in places where that's not available? That's the way of preventing MOMS from hopefully not hemorrhaging it also makes you thirsty when you breastfeed because that oxytocin leaky thirsty and that's the body's ladies way of making sure that you're drinking enough because seventy three seventy five percent of breast milk is water so you. WanNa make sure that you're drinking water because if you're not hydrating yourself you're not. GonNa get yourself that full supply and the third thing that makes you sleepy and that I don't understand the science behind that because like you don't need help being tired because you only something that you watch Evan feared. evolution has figured if you don't even more reason to be tired but like. I'll literally be talking to MOMS while they're breastfeeding. I can literally see them haze over. We're and they don't realize that it's because they're literally drug okay. This is the thing that would drive me crazy with. That's after having the baby. You're so tired. ABC's up and you're like alone in in the room and then like nurses will comment. I Love Katy. She'll come hang out for a while and you feel like you're not alone but I'll be like holding my baby and I co sleep with my babies at home but like that's like a big no no in the hospital. You're not allowed to do that. I know goes goes holding one of my babies and like you're literally like you is just as you literally. Can't you can't because you're sleeping with the baby yeah so so you feel like you're getting in trouble a lot of your there which is always another reason. I mean as much as I love my X. I actually really love my experience in the hospital but you know you're excited took a homeboy yeah. I also just wanted to like sleep. Feel you really feel not. Nobody's yelling at me when I'm sleeping being with my baby in the bed but that's actually interesting what you're saying about and I wonder if I want to tell you what I do from pumping schedule because it's a very p you guys ask all the time time and it's very different from what is recommended as very different from what a Lotta people do but I have four gigantic freezer meals else full of milk and then fed the baby on top of that I don't know what I'll do with all the milk I you know. I don't think you can donate milk. That's already frozen. I think has to be fresh rush on. Somebody told me that I don't I think I'm not positive so check but I think every like they're different.

"Ivory said we don't want to have the meeting now and one of the reasons that I could have very good at the the government of Gannett fan is is complicated after their last election. So they have a present our share, and they have a chief executive, Dr Dula Dula, right? The doctor Dula made the point is one of the things that he wanted to do. He was going to go with to to have the Taliban recognize how much has change you have women in important places. You have an economy that's a little more open than education education system. And you know, you and I thought it was a very good insight. Maybe that is that pathway is useful. If if the Tele marriage is willing to recognize these changes and adapt the problem, I think is that within the Taliban there still folks who are just completely. Dedicated I to the expulsion of wolf aren't the United States? Yes. Absolutely second to the reestablishment sharia law in all of its complications, which would diminish substantially the progress particularly with women, right? So values that we hoped we could view to have ghanistan would be loss going back to the point of. Well, okay. But what's really at stake for our interests here in United States? It's the fact that is significant turn buyer military forces particular that given the head space and room to operate ISIS. Quotas on will contemplate attack disease, Al Qaeda, who has still have a relationship with the Taliban still, you know development, and ISIS course on fight. They are not friends and they will fight continuously. But Al Qaeda's different put his al-qaeda's operating there. They'll try to reestablish. I think they're there. Prominence in the terrorist world, and that's usually done by spectacular attacks things we've seen this week. And Veronica right and across the border is Pakistan where there is a new prime minister who has who says some of the right things about confronting in Pakistan's, longstanding tolerance, maybe even clandestine support for terrorist organizations operating there and then crossing the border and waging armed attacks in Afghanistan. How do you how do we deal with Pechstein back? The question has been I think. Plaguing us at the very beginning. We've had some assistance from them. But as you suggest there have been suggestions, at least that ISI their intelligence service has been cooperating with the Connie network, and the Taliban and their sort of one in the same in some cases. And that there are these sanctuaries, of course, the border. I want to ask you a couple of questions that are purely political Joe Biden has already gotten into the race. By the time you hear this broadcast. Good idea about ideas. And Joe Biden is the front runner. I think jokes an excellent candidate. But I think it will be decided by the primary. Well, no question. That's obvious. Yeah. No, I again goes into it as a front runner as someone who is the person.

"Our colleague congressman lease out. Remember, the New York delegation to help us understand the critical issue of anti semitism and be DS in America. I wanna start with a media story. Congressman good evening to you. The congress person from Minnesota fifth district along of Dula Omar on the cover of Newsweek what going on. She's a hater. What are they doing? They are elevating empowering embracing positions rhetoric that should have no place in the halls of congress. It's infiltrating American politics were seeing on college campuses, not just anti Israel hate goes beyond any type of legitimate reasonable criticism of a foreign government. It's it's anti-semitism ProVia positions wants requesting leniency phrases fighters. Pro Madero Venezuela. The list goes on she's blames American foreign policy for the also Bob attacking Kenya. And now that's been elevated to the house for fares committee to hold their topic with regards to speaker Pelosi, and where her values are, but for the mainstream media, whether it's a Rolling Stone magazine. Last month. Or now, the Newsweek cover as we've seen here over the course of last couple of days instead of identifying confronting and crushing elements that you're not be in the halls of congress. It's not part of American foreign policy should not be part of our values. They like to give it a platform. They'll promote it. You have taken a lead in wanna congratulate you and thank you for it on the issue of anti semitism and bigotry racism, the extremism that we see rampant on campuses and in communities you introduced a special envoy Bill to elevate. The status of the special envoy in on. Semitism. Who was sworn in coincidentally today attended in Washington very moving event. Where Pompeo's secretary state in did the swearing in and sell for long car, but what are some of the ways congress can work together with them to to enhance these efforts. You know, when we see thirty seven percent increase into Mr. cases, second the legislation introduced cleared, the house overwhelmingly unanimously as I recall, but has not cleared the Senate what is happening there. The legislation. I I don't want to speak for Senator McConnell and his colleagues in that chamber. But as you pointed out, this is something that had strong bipartisan support in the house chamber. And I think that it's incredibly important. It's been a long time Celeste time, it's been this important to be elevating a position like that to embassador level. There's so much work to be done to combat anti-semitism at home and abroad. We we see it at the United Nations. We're seeing it with desecration of property elsewhere where seeing it with regards to suppression, the oppression as relates to religious liberty religious freedom. So you on car comes onto that into that position at an incredibly important time. And I think it's it's vital for congress to be giving him every tool necessary giving the president secretary Pompeo ambassador Bolton. All of those who have some role to play here interaction interacting with foreign leaders and with the enactment of our policy in for count- ability, where there are foreign countries far companies foreign media where we need to be advocating for what's right and wrong. As as this is part of what American exceptionalism is it's leading on the world stage. So Yvonne is coming in at a really important time for him to succeed. So this is a piece of legislation that elevates the status from special on void to in Basseterre, I strongly support it encourage my colleagues to get over the finish line in their timbre. Malcolm, explain what what the post is missed the mission of the especial voice to deal with into semitism broad to give real meat to the United States is commitment to say this administration. The president to the president and secretary step on pale building. What the what happened in congress before to establish his post it wasn't filled for more than a year year and a half. There were already three previous special envoys under the previous administrations, but it certainly being built up and and more aggressive in its outreach. And I hope that his words will be fulfilled. And you have Ken Marcus at the civil rights division of this department of education, Senator Brownback on religious freedom. You have tremendous team now, and we have to see to it that both at home and abroad, America's messages. Cleared that will be not tolerated. And we met at NYU and heard from students themselves here, New York City, congressman. Terrible tales about what is going on on our campuses right now. So your legislation in this efforts are are so important to to really go to the root of this when members of congress engaging it, it makes it all the more the university administrators sensitive are they responsive to them to stand that this problem is new and they've got to get ahead of it as how components out with regards to NYU, it's worth noting that Omar bar Godley, the founder of beady s went to the airport today in Israel to fly to the United States where he was going to be involved in a tour spreading his anti, Israel, and anti semitic. Kate one of his stops was NYU. I think of the City University of New York, they had a commencement address. Not that long ago. We're Linda are sore was the guest speaker, listen, it's one thing if it is an elective class where you're not gonna get penalized for not showing up one day, but amended magin if you want to celebrate your commencement. You wanna celebrate your son or your daughter's commencement that you are going to be forced to sit through Linda are sore speaking about her values, but yeah, Omar bar Godley. This is after a history where we're NYU the student body wants adopted and endorsed the BCS movement, and you immediately had death threats coming into the broth and center there at NYU that the EPA they had to deal with this is all across the entire country. We heard a few months back in university of Michigan where student with ask the professor for. A recommendation study abroad, the professor says yes. And so the professor found that suited wanna study abroad in Israel. And then the professor changed mind and said, no can't do the letter of recommendation because of the embrace the BS movement or the multiple examples that you'll hear at UC Berkeley elsewhere where you're sitting in class, they put up a map of the Middle East, and we're supposed to say Israel Palestine and teach you about Israel, these are college campuses. And we're seeing a lot of funding coming in from from Qatar coming from Saudi Arabia. They're influencing textbooks. They're getting some of their own professors, teaching classes, this is an issue from coast to coast that we really need to identify and help these college students get get help because they are being victimized in the name of. But they're being targeted blatant anti-semitism. It's a huge problem. And I think that your efforts in this regard people. I don't think appreciate we. We look at Europe and see would so much more clarity than we see. Sometimes the anti semitism at home in the and thank God, burgundy was denied, a visa company United States, and therefore will not becoming on this tour, and I think that the efforts of the administration in this regard heard secretary Pompeo today, reaffirmed that could you come into. We have thirty seconds quick comment about Salton Burr Stoltenberg, the head of the secretary general of NATO's visit and the message you got twenty five seconds. Go ahead. Pointing out that all these other nations are stepping up their commitment. This is a stronger line celebrating seventy year anniversary something that should be for celebrating two hundred fifty year anniversary one day. Some glad he came. I appreciate all of his words on the NATO alliances strong. It should be getting stronger. And and that's the best thing. I've states are alive. Lease represents the first district of.

"Your your children were born at home. Yeah. I caught all three of my kids. But the second one we were all alone because it just happened so fast, and we thought based on how slow the first one was that we had plenty of time. So we just were like, oh, we'll call her a little later. And then all of a sudden my wife was like I need to push. And so I get get on the phone, but it took her about half an hour to get there and the baby Dula the nurse or the whatever what midwife midwife yet. And so the babies had popped out. But then she wasn't coming any further. And I remembered from the whole experience before that sometimes the collarbone will we'll get caught and that you sometimes they have to go in there and break the collarbone to get the baby out, but I kinda reached in and like rotated the baby and she just scored it out. But the the cord was totally wrapped around her neck, and she was just blue like dead, baby. Are you in the bathtub at this point? We're in the bathroom should learn delivered on the toilet. And then Waterberg. So so I wrapped the cord around her neck and just gigolo for a second. And then I heard this land it was like tears of joy was most amazing experience the exact to half year old daughter. The exact same thought when my more hospital for us. But she came out. I guess this happens for all or most children, but I freaked out for a second because she came out like gray, and like not moving all my gosh is dead. Later, you know, she comes to. But I was not prepared for that. I was freaked out because the kid comes gray really weird. I have listen. I can't the reason I can't fish is. Because can't bait the hook like take the middle. You put the hook to die. Then it run. I can't I can't do that. I can't get near I feel for the same reasons. But maybe with the different crew I be around for home birth. And what is it's weird though. I have genes that enabled me to do all sorts of things that other people wouldn't do. But this I came in. Yeah. Is what is it? You know, I left it up to my wife. She wanted to do it at home just to have really relaxing, kind of spiritual experience. And and she didn't want any medication because you have to do it completely med free at home. There's no anesthetists ride a home birth. So she's just. Hard. You know, she's about s. Wow. This happened to one of my friends who she had her first child at home and everything was great and one of the little kitty pools and put it in the living room and everything's fantastic. And that's her vibe. And then the second baby things were happening and there were complications. And she's like I want to have this baby at home and thank God for the Dula. The crunchy hippie granola Dula says listen to your baby your baby's telling you it wants to be born in a hospital. Let's go so need to hear that every once in a while if I said to my wife, how do you want to do this? And she was like at home.

And when you send me you you were very organized because you send me emails. Well in advance of what we're talking about. An honestly gives me days of joy, knowing that I'm going to come in and talk about the subject matters that you bring in a nice to say because a lot of times the end it really is stuff that I have been kind of having percolate in the back of my mind, and my little mom brain means to look at it. And then you doing laundry, and then your mom brain means look at it. And then you're making pizza for the kiddo. Jay falls off the to do list unless you've written it down somewhere. Now, you've got to find it among the five. Around. Absolutely, right. The stuff that keeps you up at night and day to help you out. You did bring in some friends of yours today. Subject matter. So what are we gonna cover today and who your buddies? Well, I brought in from my office. Andrew hunt stat, and Randall kipnes who were to associated tourneys in our firm, and we're gonna talk about wills and trust and estate planning, and I'll tell you. That's why it gave me joy because this is one of those things that a lot of time. When people hear the word will because we only watch it in old television show. So you go we'll it's always a some dire. Occasion or some something. That's really contentious because we know it from soap operas dramas or some multimillionaire, and they're all sitting in a room doing the reading of the wheel. Right. And we all think that this only applies to those people those folks that have so much money that they have to worry about these things. But I mean prince died without a will. Oh my gosh. And as much trouble as we'd like to believe that. That's just a problem because he's prince. It's a problem for everybody. And we are going to take people's questions today if you have one you can call us a six five one six four one one zero seven one six five one six four one one zero seven one I do remind everybody the Diana's an amazing attorney we encourage you to be cognizant of that you could call Sheridan and do less if you need specific information, and we're gonna try and give you some general information today. But remember, that's exactly what it is general information. And although it applies to you. We still need to follow up directly with your own attorney. Right. We're at thirty thousand feet wrestling with these issues, especially when it comes to wills and trusts and estate planning everything that we're talking about today is going to apply to most people. But there are so many different ways of planning your estate and really trying to get to the specific needs of you and your family you need to come in. And see us talk to another lawyer just to make sure that you're handling it correctly. Because this is absolutely positively a not a situation where one-size-fits-all Andy, and is probably makes sense. What we've said before here. On the mom show. Is that you kind of be the reason why your firm has this variety of different specialties and different things that the attorneys that somebody might come to you with one particular issue that is a you know, it right now is the top of my thing with their family. But it trickles into other things. Always when I do family law family law touches, everything it touches real estate. It touches business at touches, grandparents rights, it touches everything. But at our firm what we try to do is we try to be that full service firm. So that when it deals with a land dispute between two relatives as we're trying to get through a divorce or you've got a problem with a neighbor or you have an issue where you've got other planning family or criminal issues that come up that's where Jeffrey and Andrew and Randall come into and we bring them in as part of the team to make sure we're handling all of your needs. Now, Dan, we've talked to you before about how you became a super rockstar family attorney that you basically was a prodigy you decided. You things and they could just see the twinkle in your eye negoti needs to be in charge of this firm. And if there was a lot I mean, it was it was a different time coming into it into the mid eighties and really finding that passion to want to help people in this way. And we were lucky enough a couple of years ago as part of that process to have Andrew and Randall join our firm, and they have that same sort of spirit and energy of really wanting to get in there and help people and make it happen in a way that really works for them and helps them come up with a good long lasting solution. Now, gentlemen, how do you decide that you go? This is the area of law that we want to practice it. That's a really good question. All right. Thanks. For childhood experiences. I've saw families go.
