EP136- How to Plan for the Five Essential Changes Postpartum
33:03

As the founder of Postpartum Together, today Chelsea Skaggs will share several takeaways that we can learn from her experiences with pregnancy, relationships during and after baby, the reality of postpartum, and the different postpartum preparations that women need. If she looks back at all the choices she made and spent time and effort on, present Chelsea would tell her past-pregnant-self to “trust yourself more.” The time she spent on Google and YouTube looking for answers, she believes, was better off spent listening to her intuition more as a woman and a mother –a tip she leaves for all the mothers-to-be out there.

 

Learn how to prepare for the 5 Essential Changes that occur postpartum in this episode of the Mamas in Training Podcast.

EP134- How to Prevent Our Newborns from Falling During Skin to Skin with Founders Hayley & Sarah, in collaboration with Joovy
28:42

When you’re laying in bed postpartum with your newborn on your chest, maybe practicing skin to skin, you never expect that little infant to wiggle off you and fall. This traumatic moment became a reality for one of today's guests, Hayley Mullins, two weeks postpartum. 

This week is Newborn Falls Awareness Week and it’s important for us to realize that newborn falls are much more common than we hear about. Hayley was so empowered to make a change, after having trouble finding a product that would work, that she created a prototype in 3 weeks, which is now called the Joeyband for clinical use and the RooLoop for retail. Hayley and her co-founder, Sarah-Almaza Cox are on the show today to share what can we do to protect our baby from falling postpartum? What is skin to skin? What are the benefits? …and so much more! 

Hayley & Sarah, along with their third co-founder Ashley, have collaborated with the company, Joovy, a global leader in premium products for babies and young children, that is passionate about solving problems and supporting families in order to bring this product into hospitals, as well as into your hands.

EP128- When Your Postpartum Reality Isn’t What You Dreamt it Would Be with Elizabeth Presta
31:54

For Elizabeth Presta, no matter what level of planning and preparation she did for her pregnancy and birth, her plans still derailed and she still was left feeling emotionally empty. That picture of becoming a mom was not at all what she expected and she instantly started to question and judge herself. 

We have a lot of assumptions about our pregnancy, birth, postpartum and life in general as a mother. We paint a picture in our minds, but what if it looks like a VERY different picture than the one we dreamt?

Is there anything we can do to manage our expectations and what if it does feel different, how do we pivot?

 

Learn how to… manage our expectations and know that our plans might not go as planned in this episode of the Mamas in Training Podcast.

EP126- How to Find Body Balance when Pregnant & Prepare for Birth with Deb Flashenberg
33:58

If you were doing yoga and cycling routinely while you’re pregnant… that should be enough to prepare you physically for birth, right? In fact, it might not be enough and you could STILL feel out of balance physically when you go into labor.

For today’s guest, Deb Flashenberg, this was her story. She thought she had covered all the bases for smooth labor, but instead, she was in labor for hours and found that her baby was asynclitic  or not in line with her birth canal because her pelvic was out of balance.

So, what IS balance when we’re preparing for childbirth and labor? How can we achieve balance before we give birth? Deb teaches us the important key to finding balance during your pregnancy to help create less obstruction for baby's birth during labor. You will learn where to start and what not to forget when training to be a future mama. 

 

Learn where to start and the important keys to finding balance during your pregnancy and create less obstruction for birth in this episode of the Mamas in Training Podcast.

EP120- Should I Get a Doula? with Heidi Snyderburn of Birth Story Media
44:46

What does a Doula do? What is the importance of a doula? Why can’t our partners support us like a doula?

Aside from encouraging you, reminding you of your strength, preparing cool cloths, maybe with essential oils or playing your favorite music, a doula can physically help move and adjust your body to manage the pain of labor and can even supporT you to have a vaginal birth, if you so desire.

While our partners can be there for our birth and support us for sure, they TOO have a lot of emotions, fears and distractions going on. It can be hard for them to be 100% fully focused on your needs. However a doula or “mother servant”’ is there for you and you alone. 

 

Learn the impact a doula can have on your birth experience in this episode of the Mamas in Training Podcast!

EP119- What to Do When You Feel Like You’re Losing Control with Josephine Atluri
40:04

How far have you gone to have control or FEEL like you have control over your life?Aside from the to-do lists and schedules, have you ever pushed your body past its limits?

As we begin our journey into motherhood, even before conception, there is SO little control we have and this can feel frightening, uneasy and can even lead us to harming ourselves or those who love us. 

For Josephine Atluri, her long journey into motherhood wreaked havoc on her ability to control. A mama of 7 children… yes, you read that correctly, 7, Josephine’s path was rocky and she had no control. She went through so much stress to build her family, that it led to an eating disorder. How did she make it through and how in the world does she get through each day with 7 children?! It was at her lowest point that she discovered the need for something more and she turned to mediation. 

 

Listen in to learn how the power of meditation has impacted her life and how it can change yours too on this episode of the Mamas in Training Podcast.

34:09

What if you could heal eczema & cradle cap with only 3 natural ingredients? 

Sensitive and irritated skin is very common for our little ones since their skin is still thin and developing.

She created a product that had three simple, natural ingredients that actually come from the earth and cleared up the eczema in just one day! She is on a mission to share with mamas the importance of knowing the ingredients on the products we use for babies’ skin.

EP110- How to Heal Perinatal Anxiety Through the Body Chakras with Chiara Townley
30:33

Anxiety.  It can come up at any time of your life, but it tends to increase significantly during pregnancy and postpartum and can become so intense, that it completely stops you in your tracks. It could prevent you from leaving the house, getting out of bed or even prevent you from connecting to your baby. For mama Chiara Townley, anxiety had always been present to some extent, but once she got pregnant it got worse and in postpartum, she experienced a panic attack. That was the final straw that forced her to look inwards and heal through the Chakras. 

Learn how to take back control and heal your own anxiety, as Chiara did, by connecting to your body and its Chakras in this episode of the Mamas in Training Podcast.

EP104- How to Create a Postpartum Plan with Jessica D’Argenio Waller
39:36

So many things can crop up during the postpartum period, but they are swept under the rug because we assume that they are part of the process, but they don’t have to be. Most women postpartum are more susceptible to nutritional depletion, anemia, osteopenia, depression, anxiety, and fatigue. Studies show that one in five women experience signs of postpartum depression. However, if you have more social support, you are less likely to be affected by mental health issues. This makes a postpartum care plan very important. In this episode, Jessica shares her postpartum experience and what she wishes she had done differently to make her transition smoother.  

Learn how to create your postpartum plan for a smooth transition into and through the postpartum in this episode of the Mamas in Training Podcast with Jessica D’Argenio Waller!

In this episode, Dr. Morgan Cutlip speaks about the responsibility we have on how we see our partners, how parenthood affects satisfaction, the common unexplored self-expectations for women and moms, maternal gatekeeping, and how to involve your partner right from the beginning in motherhood.

EP89- How the Nustle Supports Your Breastfeeding Journey with Founder Teran Martin
24:15

When Teran Martin first became a mother, her vision of what breastfeeding would be like was one of ease. She imagined that nature would just take its course, right?! Unfortunately for her that was not the case. After several attempts and a frustrating couple of weeks, she decided it was time to complete her breastfeeding journey and dry up her milk. The advice she was given at that time was to use a cold compress. She found herself stuck on the couch unable to move and rather uncomfortable with hard sharp pieces of ice combined with a bedsheet to secure it around her midsection. Knowing that no woman should ever have to go through this experience, she began to develop a product to help dry up your milk production, but ended up creating a product that actually helps with both ends of the breastfeeding journey. 

 

Listen in to learn about how Teran Martin developed the Nustle: Mamas Milk Wrap. A hot and cold compression wrap that helps with both milk production and increases dry up time when mom is complete.

32:14

Mama of two and a pilates instructor for the past 13 years, Nikki Bergen is the creator of The Belle Method and The Bump Method. She discusses the importance of creating a strong pelvic floor and core and becoming empowered in our bodies before we even dive into motherhood. The Bump Method is created specifically for moms and where their/your body is during and after pregnancy. At the same time, she reminds women that it’s never too late to heal yourself. 

This mama gave birth on Mother’s Day of this year, in the heart of the COVID-19 pandemic. She shares her two IVF birth stories and her initial challenges with a heart condition called SVT, (supraventricular tachycardia) that she had as a child, but then it got worse during pregnancy. She had to choose between her husband and her doula when her birth unexpectedly took a turn and she ended up having to go to the hospital, when she planned a home birth.

EP60- I’m a mess, you’re a mess, let’s be a mess together...
36:51

It’s time for women to speak up for change and tell the world what women and mothers need. Mama, Christine Michel Carter is an advocate for Black and Working Mamas, encouraging them to stand up for change. 

While she has an extremely impressive biography, she is as real as you can get. When we signed onto Zoom to chat, she was lounging in her bed. She is proof that you can be a kick ass single mom, inspiring change and hustling while balancing the uncertainty of this world. 

We talk about how mothers in the corporate world need to “write the policy” for what women need, the disconnect in our healthcare system and how black women aren’t listened to, especially during childbirth and much much more. Listen and be inspired!

EP56- Let’s talk boys...
51:22

Are you a boy mom? Do you have a boy and don’t understand why he does what he does? This episode is for YOU…

A mama of 2 girls, Janet Allison, speaks to me all about boys. How did this come about? Why does she talk about boys when she has only girls???...

After working as a teacher in Southern Oregon, she discovered she had a classroom full of 10 boys and 2 girls. So, she quickly got curious and learned how different boys are inside and outside the classroom from girls. 

 

Janet gives a ton of helpful tips for us to understand the minds of boys and as she explains, how to “enter his world.” I find our conversation fascinating and so helpful, even to me in understanding the mind of my husband. She has a great tool to teach empathy and so much more! I can’t wait for you to listen to our conversation and send me an email if you have any fun boy stories: info@thepumpingpodcast.com

EP54- Vulnerability in motherhood…
01:08:33

This mama of four has been through it all… PCOS, VBAC, Hemorrhaging, Miscarriage, Depression, Type 1 Diabetes... and that’s just scratching the surface. 

*I advise those listening that this story is challenging and could be triggering for some.

Amy had her first child at just 18 and really struggled after the first pregnancy, feeling like a failure and not having the confidence to speak up about it. As her story continues, the hurdles she overcame grow along with her confidence to speak up. She encourages mamas to educate themselves about their health, pregnancy and beyond to know that you’re not crazy or alone. 

This mama’s vulnerability is so real and inspiring. She encourages new mamas to “take the rope.” Accept help when it’s offered. “You don’t need to drown, when there’s so many things working against you.”

I hope you find this mamas as uplifting as I did. Man, she is full of great advise and her story is so memorable!

EP53- Birth in a pandemic…
36:20

Mama of two and a pilates instructor for the past 13 years, Nikki Bergen is the creator of The Belle Method and The Bump Method. She discusses the importance of creating a strong pelvic floor and core and becoming empowered in our bodies before we even dive into motherhood. The Bump Method is created specifically for moms and where their/your body is during and after pregnancy. At the same time, she reminds women that it’s never too late to heal yourself. 

This mama gave birth on Mother’s Day of this year, in the heart of the COVID-19 pandemic. She shares her two IVF birth stories and her initial challenges with a heart condition called SVT, (supraventricular tachycardia) that she had as a child, but then it got worse during pregnancy. She had to choose between her husband and her doula when her birth unexpectedly took a turn and she ended up having to go to the hospital, when she planned a home birth. 

 

This inspiring mama was such a ray of sunshine to sit down with and chat. Watch the video on YouTube

EP52- A WERKing Mama…
52:08

Chanel, from Dallas, encourages all mamas to embrace the new normals and to WERK motherhood while still chasing your personal dreams. Life surely looks different when you dive into motherhood, but she is advocating for moms to create a lifestyle that fits for you and your family. Find confidence in the WERK you’re doing as a mama and in the WERK you’re doing as a woman. 

After having two very different births, Chanel gives some great tips for focusing on you in the birthing room. Be intentional choosing your healthcare provider, hire a doula, focus on your physical and prepare yourself mentally. It’s all a mindset she encourages. Those are just a few adjustments she made from her first to second pregnancy. Listen to her journey for more advise that she gives to empower mamas everywhere!

EP51- Mama, Laura Michelle Kelly...
34:12

Putting goodness out into the world to encourage other people, is the goal of this Olivier Award winner, Laura Michelle Kelly. This elegant mama has graced the stages of the West End in London and Broadway, in addition to countless theaters all over the world. Best known for playing the title role of Mary Poppins, she has played the role of mother several times, but became a mother herself a year ago. 

Her son, Raphael, made his appearance early and while that surprised her and she overcame challenges of the NICU, he is a healthy and active boy who is turning one this October! She encourages actors to live life and not wait for certain roles or boxes to check. Her marriage and motherhood came later in life, but she waited for the timing that worked for her. Motherhood has lit her up and also exhausted her, but she wouldn’t change it for the world. 

 

It was such an honor to chat with this mama, a role model of mine and the sweetest soul out there.

EP48- The Boobie Cheerleader...
44:48

Renee Davis, mama of 4 (3 biological and one adopted) and a lactation consultant, is here to share her challenging journey into motherhood along with her passion for helping breastfeeding and pumping mamas. After wishing she had more support when beginning her lactation journey, she realized that she could do so much better! She is so warm and loving and it was a dream to chat with her. 

The only support she had had during that time was her mom and she revels in the accessibility that is available to mamas now. Aware that sometimes moms aren’t heard and aren’t supported enough from the moment that little baby gets placed into your arms, Renee is on a path to change that. She gives advice to new moms for important steps to take that will help keep your lactation journey as smooth as possible including having alone time after your child is born, protecting your milk supply and more. 

If you are looking for support and the basic help during the start of your motherhood and breastfeeding journey, Renee is here to help you. She does online consultations and provides support one on one for mamas.

Emily’s birth  was challenging because she didn’t feel ready and the same came with the start of her breastfeeding journey. She discusses how she didn’t know what to do, how to manage and she felt she really needed a lactation consultant for comfort and guidance. 

She also encourages mamas to remember that breastfeeding is between you and your baby. Do what you need, when you need and don’t worry about what others think. Emily is still breastfeeding her, now toddler and encourages you to do motherhood in whatever way is best for you.

EP45- Functional fertility, the root cause…
47:09

This week we hear a story of infertility that was turned into power by mama, Sarah Clark. After being diagnosed with premature ovarian failure at age 28, she turned to donor eggs to have her two children. It wasn’t until later in life that she discovered the root cause of her infertility: food intolerance and a gut infection. She is passionate about getting to the root cause of where your body is at and why you could be struggling, not just giving up or taking medications. 

 

She has become a fertility coach with the hopes to encourage, inspire and potentially provide healing opportunities to women out there who desire to start a family. Her company, Fab Fertile provides Functional Fertility Solutions and you’ll hear how in depth their testing goes, it’s very impressive.

EP44- I love you, but that was traumatic...
53:07

A mama of two, whose daughter was born right at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Mallory Grantz shares her challenging first birth story and the joy of postpartum during a pandemic. Mallory is a friend from college and it was so wonderful to reconnect and hear her journey.

She was vulnerable enough to share how she lacked the connection with her first born that you think you’re “supposed to feel” right away. With such a traumatic pregnancy, it wasn’t until later into motherhood that she felt that connection and now her son is her mini-me. I was so grateful for her openness and vulnerability about the challenges you can experience at the beginning of motherhood.

EP42- Becoming...finding YOU in motherhood…
43:17

Tamra Andress is the mama of one inquisitive girl and one vivacious boy. She is an entrepreneur, a coach, an ordained minister, a podcast host and so much more! She is a breath of fresh air and energy. We discuss the importance of becoming a mom, but simultaneously holding onto or rediscovering your identity as a woman. 

We also unpack mom guilt and the many ways in which it can creep up. She discusses how she was so wrapped up in the working world (during the early days of her children’s life) that her life came to a screeching halt when she came home one day and her daughter, instead of running toward her, ran the other direction. She decided to quit her jobs that day and refocus on motherhood. While this process was a blessing, she also found herself trying to find her identity again. 

My hope is that you feel inspired after hearing her story to rediscover your identity, if you’ve felt like you lost it through motherhood.

EP41- A military mom...
36:06

July 1st...what a memorable few months we’ve been through! Thinking through this week, as we approach July 4th, Independence Day, and not knowing what kind of celebrations we’ll be having this year… I wanted to celebrate by chatting with a military mom! 

Monica Arce is a military mom whose husband, Oscar, joined the military 3 years ago when the economy in Puerto Rico was hit so destructively after Hurricane Maria. They had to move from the warmth of Puerto Rico to Alaska. Not only did she and the family have to adjust to climate changes, but also challenges with learning a new language, getting her son settled in a new school system and doing it all on her own. Take a listen to our conversation about her experience and the strength she needs to sustain for her son.

EP40- C-section, the unwritten birth plan...
56:11

This week’s episode is a conversation about C-sections, something that doesn’t seem to be discussed. After realizing that very few moms even talk about having a c-section, never-mind going into detail about the challenges around them during and after in recovery, this mama Susannah Hilliard thought it was time to share her experience. 

After an emergency c-section, Susannah’s baby was born and she didn’t even know it was happening. Not only that, but her husband was still waiting to be brought into the room to see his son be born, having no idea that he had already arrived. She shares some insight into what the recovery process looks like and is passionate about sharing stories like hers, so that c-section moms know they aren’t alone. 

Remember, at the end of the day, the most important thing is that you brought life into the world, no matter how it comes.

EP39- Stop raising kids, start raising adults...
55:25

A discussion with Deana and Kira, two moms from Raising Adults Podcast, about how to focus on raising adults- future focused parenting. A long view of parenting where you focus on the values and character traits of the human you are raising and how you want them to positively contribute to the world. 

They explain the importance of establishing your WHY for any parenting choice and discovering how that will lead you to the HOW of any parental situation. Deana, a mom from a blended family of five teenagers and Kira, a mom of boy/girl twins had completely different birthing experiences and have different backgrounds, but come together to support families everywhere. 

These mamas are chalk-full of helpful tips and tricks with parenting. I could chat with them for hours, learning from them how to raise children with the adult outcome in mind. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did!

EP38- You have superhero skills...
41:02

Having her first child at just 19 years old, this week’s guest, Sabrina Ben Salmi from London, discusses the raising of her 5 children and how it transformed her for the better. She came from a challenging childhood with a lack of support, but discovered how to ask her kids: “How am I doing?.” That question has formed a relationship of openness, honesty and trust with each of her children. 

The Ben Salmi family has become a family of entrepreneurs, even at just 4 when her youngest son published a book! While they were growing up, she encouraged her children to study personal development together, learn about emotional intelligence, the intricacies of the brain and always spoke to her children as an ally. She would encourage and empower their strengths, passions and curiosities in order to support them to be future focused. 

Ben Salmi Family Mantras:

We believe that there is no such thing as failure, only feedback.

We also believe that the journey of one thousand miles begins with a single step in the right direction.

EP37- Kids eat in color with Jennifer...
53:07

In this episode, I sit down with Jennifer Anderson, a mama of 2 boys and a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. After many failed attempts to get her sons to eat that broccoli, she decided to start @KidsEatinColor, where she shares tips to start babies on food, picky toddler eaters and more! Not to mention that her page is so colorful and fun to follow. 

Listen in as she answers questions from listeners and gives tons of tips to simplify meal time. She teaches me how to take control of how and when your child eats, while lowering your stress and practicing “whatever you want weaning.” We also discuss setting up a food schedule to teach your children healthy eating habits, food negotiation and portions. She is chalk full of information and tips and I could have talked to her all day about baby eating and diets. I hope you enjoy our chat as much as I did!

EP36- Tiny home living with 4...
49:19

It was such a joy to sit down with a dear friend, whom I’ve babysat for quite a bit, just 3 weeks after her second daughter was born. Kate talks about the differences in pregnancy and birth for her two daughters. We then discuss small NYC living. When she and her husband found out they were pregnant with their second, they considered moving, but finally decided that it would be best for them to stay in their one bedroom, 3rd floor walkup. 

Listen in as we discuss “Marie Kondo-ing” their apartment and how they worked to transform their small space into something that is manageable for 4 humans and also continues to be a place that they love and enjoy.

EP35- Postpartum banned from the Oscars...
38:45

This week, I have a very candid chat with actress and mama, Laura Gilreath, who is the mama that was featured in the recent Frida Mom commercial that went viral because it was banned from being aired during the Oscars! While she recorded the commercial during pregnancy, she had quite the challenging postpartum journey ahead of her. 

She talks about how when you bring home a baby, you also bring home a mom. A statement that Frida Mom stands by. She brings us through a challenging pregnancy and birth that she experienced. Now being 3 months postpartum, she explains her experience compared to her portrayal in the commercial.

EP34- The Dad Experience, a joint episode...
47:16

This week, I worked on something a little different… 

In this episode, you’ll hear a joint episode with me and another podcast host, Adam Busuttil from The Dad Experience Podcast! We sit down and chat about the challenging times of COVID-19, what goes through the minds of dads and how we can all work together to slow down and be grateful for the present. 

Adam is a father of 2 girls from Michigan. He started his podcast, after being confined to his home for a year with the birth of his first daughter, because she had a congenital heart defect. He has created a place where dads could go to find meaningful parenting information and stories. Since our podcasts are similar in the ways of sharing the journey into parenthood, we decided to do a mashup and we hope you enjoy it!

EP33- If prayer is talking to God, meditation is listening...
55:40

For the fourth episode in my Mini Meditation and Wellness Series, I am bringing you another meditation from a mama that I promise will bring you some strength, help you hear your heart and connect you to your own groundedness. Remember during this time to S.T.O.P (Stop, Take a break, Observe your surroundings, and then Proceed)! 

I know all of you mamas may be feeling anxiety and overwhelm during this time. Kristen is here to remind you to ground yourself for your kids. If we are running around frantic, they learn to be frantic and to fear. Remember: “Parenting isn’t about being perfect, it’s about being honest. Honor where you are. You might feel fear, but don’t live in your fear.”

Meditation at minute: 29:00.

EP32- Faith, spirituality & grace at a time we need it most...
54:53

For the third episode in my Mini Meditation and Wellness Series, I chatted with one of my best mama friends, Erin Adams, for a conversation around faith and spirituality. No matter what your beliefs, we wanted to spread the word that whatever energy it is that makes the world go round, it is that energy of love and positivity that we need to share today.  

Whether faith is something you lean on daily or it’s something you shy away from, there can be some comfort found in a quiet prayer or meditation, especially during times of struggle and uncertainty. There is hope and we will heal from this over time.  Love thy neighbor and share love and light with the neighbors around you.

EP31- No shame mommies, you‘re doing enough...
42:18

For the second episode in my Mini Meditation and Wellness Series, I wanted to bring you a conversation with a mama who is “mostly under control.” Melanie O'Reilly-Rogers is a twin mom of 4 kids, with a background in early childhood development, who is no stranger to chaos. She writes a blog where she talks about keeping parenting and life mostly under control. 

We chat about what she and all of you mamas must be going through during this pandemic. We acknowledge that there is a lot of information out there for what you can and should be doing, but we talk about how you are doing enough. It can all be overwhelming and she is here to encourage you to keep doing you, whatever that looks like. No shame here!

EP30- A moment of stillness, a meditation for you…
45:28

Mamas, I have decided to start a Mini Meditation and Wellness Series for you during this time of uncertainty. For the next few weeks, you will be able to tune in for meditations, spirituality and health conversations that you can listen to and revisit daily or anytime you need. 

I encourage you to use these as you desire and pass along to other mamas who may need a few moments of stillness. 

This first episode is with mama, Jen Prokhorov. She is a mama of four and has developed a meditation app just for mothers, called StillPoint. We discuss how she and her family are coping at this time and then she brings us into a meditation at minute: 23:45.

01:16:18

Dan and Kay Ockey entered marriage with $20,000 in debt and managed to pull themselves out along with adding to their ROTH, a down payment, health savings and more in just a year and a half before their daughter Lucy was born!

In this episode, I sit down with both of them to hear their story and what tools helped them get out of what seemed to be a sinking ship. During uncertain times, like those we are living in now, these key conversations around values and intentions are key to a happy family life.

44:32

After performing as a Patriots cheerleader and then starting her own fitness studio, this mama Angela (Ando) Hawthorne decided to start a family. While she had thought of motherhood as somewhat of a fairytale experience, she quickly learned that it was far from it and she had quite a rollercoaster... Navigating a premature birth with her first child at 29 weeks and having to exclusively pump. Then with her second child, experiencing a shortened cervix and then finally a prolapse to top it all off. This mama has been put through the test of motherhood.

Angela is here to bring attention to issues and challenges in motherhood that aren’t discussed to help women prepare and be more aware.

EP26- Nap-trapped mama, by choice...
38:47

How do you leave a career that was everything to you? Dance- it was the love of your life and it was taken away. Listen to how my guest this week, Nova found a new purpose in being a mama, after what she thought was her only purpose was taken away from her.  

Her journey has been unconventional to this current western medicine culture, but it was hers to choose.  Everyone has their own way of handling motherhood. This ferocious mama, explains how she has decided to take on this journey of motherhood in a liberating, primal and instinctual way. At the end of the day, she speaks to the thought that informed is best and then ultimately YOU know what’s best for you and your baby.

EP25- An extra chromosome of joy & a family of 7…
44:03

Cassie Allred never intended to have a house full of 5 children, but it is the biggest blessing. With the news of her fourth, came that her baby would have Down Syndrome. This was an anxiety provoking experience at the on-sight, but as she says, “I wouldn’t change Tessa’s extra chromosome for anything. It’s who she is.” 

Listen in on how Cassie advises the navigation of a diagnosis like this one and the community she has built, that has saved her during scary times. Also, how she juggles a house full of 5 beautiful children that are on “Team Allred”, and in addition, how she continues her passion of photography and taking care of herself. 

As she says, you cannot take care of anyone until you take care of yourself, so she makes it a priority. Getting up earlier than her kids, listening to podcasts, getting a run in or yoga this mama let’s nothing come between her and her ME time!

EP24- Corporate by day, Mama always...
54:32

My guest this week is The Office Doula, as she calls herself on Instagram, Molly Smith. Molly is a mama with a job in Corporate America, who explains how she juggles both lives: the 9-5pm Career Leader and Mama. 

She candidly explains how this experience was extremely stressful and challenging, as she continued to pump running between meetings. I loved our conversation, as it allowed a little insight into the life of a corporate mama. 

She has also created an Instagram platform where she shares hilarious and raw photos of life behind the scenes of a corporate mama- pumping at work, spilling milk, experiencing postpartum and more.

An Internal Medicine Physician, Cartoonist and wonderful Mom... my guest this week, Grace Farris, talks about how she started to use her cartoon drawings to illustrate her experiences of motherhood.

This week, a friend from high school, Leah Bares, shares her family’s battle with Neuroblastoma. This mama’s strength and grace is like nothing you’ve ever heard. While this episode is not an easy one to hear, it’s important for all of us to listen to for the sake of advocacy and support. 

Childhood cancer is more frequent than we wish to admit and Neuroblastoma is the most common cancer in infants. Every 14 hours, a child is diagnosed with the disease.

EP15- FOSTERING a life of love…
56:46

This week, we dive into the world of foster care with a special mama with a huge heart, Ashley Baker. After having one biological child and experiencing kidney failure, this warrior went through a kidney transplant and then decided to look toward other parenting options. Through foster care, she and her husband have welcomed 16 children through their doors with open arms. 

Ashley talks about the highs and lows of foster care and how it has not only transformed her life, but also the life of her biological daughter. This mama is, as she says, “a champion for special needs, foster care and adoption.” I’d just say in general, she’s a champion, a warrior and overall badass loving woman. 

What a joy it was to chat with her. If you’re in the VA Beach area and want more information on fostering children, send me an email and I can connect you both for coffee. If you’re not in the area, email me also and I will connect you to Ashley so she can answer all your questions.

EP12- Becoming a mama before Broadway…
52:51

From the Broadway Company of Hamilton, Liz Racanelli is a mama who found that becoming a mom made her grow not only as a person, but as a performer. Like many actors, this mama didn’t “make it” (as they say) on Broadway before becoming a mama, but tells us how it was more important to make those meaningful life decisions and let the work come as it would come. 

She talks about the fear that many actors face: the joy of being on the road with a production, being employed and traveling with her infant, then moving back to the concrete jungle and not knowing when the next job will come. The dramatic change in her daily routine was a huge adjustment for both herself and her little one and she explains how they slowly moved into a new normal. 

Liz is currently performing in New York City with the cast of Hamilton on Broadway.

EP11- Being a motherless mother…
51:11

At just 11 years old, one of my best friends, basically my sister, lost her mother to a brain tumor.  It flipped all of our worlds upside down and left Sarah and her little brother, motherless. Though she continued to have countless women in her life step up and support her, there is still nothing like the voice and advise of your mother. 

It wasn’t until Sarah became a mother herself, that she started to realize how much her own mother’s passing had influenced her life. She became a motherless mother. 

Listen to the story of how something so terrible turned into a lifelong journey of discovery, creativity and passion. 

If any of you listening, are a motherless daughter or motherless mother, send me an email and I will connect you to Sarah. It is times like these that you need a village.

EP10- Loss and overcoming birth complications...
39:00

Today’s guest, Paige Koupal, brings us through her journey of 3 extremely different birthing experiences. From the first normal and quick birth to laboring for 24 hours and an induction with a c-section for the second and finally deciding to take a natural approach with the third, but ultimately not being satisfied with the results. At the end of the day, she has three very healthy and happy children, but it was quite a journey to get there. 

In this episode, we also take a moment to honor those babies Paige and other moms out there have lost. October is Pregnancy and Infancy Loss Awareness month, but I decided to share this episode for Paige this week because September 27th is the four year anniversary loss of one of her angels. 

If you have experienced loss as a mom, remember that you are not alone and reach out for help and support. If you’d like to connect with any of the moms I interview, send me an email: thepumpingpodcast@gmail.com and I will connect you with someone to talk to.

EP9- Happy Days, Rested Nights...
46:32

In this episode, I get a chance to speak with Samantha Day, a mother of two, lover of country line dance, a behavior specialist and a certified sleep consultant. No matter what your method of sleep is, Samantha is here to chat with us about how important sleep is to all of us and how it doesn’t have to be such a controversy. 

With her degree as a Learning Behavior Specialist and after going through sleep struggles with her son, she decided to go on a path of more research and applied her behavioral techniques, which led her back to school where she found her passion. 

She recently launched her own podcast called Happy Days, Rested Nights, which discusses all things sleep and other parenting topics. She aims to help families get the sleep they need with whichever method fits their lifestyle and encourage positive parenting tips for continued happy days. Take a listen to her journey and maybe learn some tips and tricks along the way.

EP8- Life is messy, but that‘s what makes it beautiful...
55:30

September is NICU Awareness month and I found such a fun mom to share her experience in the NICU.  Even though it took an entire decade to start a family, this hilarious mom and her husband kept their spirits high and believe “what’s the point of life if you’re not able to laugh about it.”

Now a mama of twin 2 year olds and a witty 5 year old, Sarah Krieg laughs through her challenges getting pregnant, staying pregnant, IVF, c-section, NICU care and craniosynostosis. The NICU cared for, comforted and educated Sarah and her family and for that she is so grateful. 

As she says, “life is messy, but that’s what makes it beautiful,” and her light-hearted spirit definitely exudes those words. Listen to her story and prepare to laugh a lot along the way. 

As a filmmaker and photographer, she hides behind the camera when trying to cope with things, as she says, but it makes for beautiful and touching stories. Check them out on her website, SharedShutter.com

48:17

If you are an actor who has always wanted a family, but don't know how or if you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be a professional actor and a mom- this is the episode for you! 

Not only is my guest an actress, she is traveling the country with a National Tour AND being a Mom... Actress, Siri Howard, gives us insight into the world of juggling!  She inspires me, as an actor, and will hopefully inspire other actors out there who have always wanted to be a mom, but don’t know how to make it work. 

Siri is currently on the National Tour of “The Phantom of the Opera” with her husband and 9-month old baby boy, Jack.  She speaks of the adventures in travel, time change, juggling new environments and the challenge of child care on the road.

EP5- HELLP-less...
01:16:14

Imagine you are 30 weeks pregnant, have had an uneventful pregnancy, but then start to experience the normal “being pregnant” symptoms all at once and to an unbearable level.  After heading into your doctors office to figure out if everything is ok, they immediately tell you to head to the hospital and don’t stop to pee on the way. 

When you get to the hospital, you’re told that you will be having this baby tonight, more like in 30 minutes, because you have about 90 minutes before this syndrome that has started to attack your body, becomes life-threatening. 

You are truly...H.E.L.L.P.-less.  That is the story of my hero of a guest, Shana Conza and her sweet baby girl Georgia, born at just 2lbs 8oz and 15.5”. 

 

-Shana’s Doctor & Hospital: Dr. Michelle Morgan of OBGYN Westside- Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, New York.

EP4- A couple of DADS...
01:03:34

Here at Mamas in Training, I want to showcase how every family is different, every child is special, every mom is a hero and every Dad can have the same wishes as a mom.  If you are non-heterosexual and have ever dreamed of having a family, this couple is here to prove that with a little determination and a lot of patience it can come true.  

In this episode, my guests Sean and Tony (a couple of DADS) bring us through their journey of starting a family after being together for 7 years.  These two required the utmost patience, as they hit obstacle after obstacle.  

During this interview, the excitement in their voices is so palpable, as they were just 2 weeks out from meeting their bundle of joy.  No matter what form a family comes in, as long as it is surrounded by love, that’s all that matters and this little one will surely be loved by many open arms.

43:28

These days, we use so many filters on our life. This episode pulls back the curtain, deletes the filters and talks about the nitty gritty side of being a mama. My guest, Ashley, talks all about the nasty, icky shit that comes with postpartum. Heads up...sex after pregnancy sucks! 

In this episode, we don’t hold back, even with our language. So, you may not want to listen with the little ones around. Ashley is a former actor/voice-over artist and audio/stagehand who worked in NYC for years and now she’s a stay at home mom and she’s loving it. 

I want to hear from you moms about what other crazy shit has happened to you! Send me an email: thepumpingpodcast@gmail.com and tell me what you experienced!

EP2- When everything seems to fail, but becoming a mama is a necessity…
35:02

My guest, Kimberly Much, tells a heart-wrenching story of perseverance and strength. Nothing was going to stop her from becoming a mama and I mean nothing! She and her husband have been through it all and they kept picking themselves back up again and again. 

If you’ve ever thought you couldn’t make it past a miscarriage, an adoption challenge or pregnancy, give this episode a listen and I hope it inspires you to keep trying. This couple knew from Day 1 that they were going to be parents and that tunnel vision kept their heads up and their hearts open. 

You are not going to believe this episode, it is so powerful and I can’t wait for you to hear it!

If you have any questions for Kimberly about her powerful journey, email me at thepumpingpodcast@gmail.com and I’ll get them answered----more----

EP1- What they don‘t tell you about breastfeeding...
39:47

(Previously called The Pumping Podcast)

So, you go to all the pregnancy classes and breastfeeding classes and you think you're ready to go...and then the day comes that you are being sent to an infectious disease specialist and they're talking about tongue-tie...

Kicking off World Breastfeeding Month, I have a special guest:

In this first episode, my guest, Amanda Fontana, talks about all the things they DON'T tell you about breastfeeding and how her journey was NOT as easy as they make it seem in the classes. No matter how well prepared you think you are, you never know how to truly handle the journey of breastfeeding until you're in the thick of it. 

 If you have any questions for Amanda about her journey, email me and I'll get them answered. Follow her @amandagracefontana
