153 | Mel, Same Sex Couple, Partner IVF, Emergency Caesarean
Play • 1 hr 3 min

On today’s show I interview Mel and she shares the birth of her little girl Navy. After being together for seven years and shortly after they got married, Mel and  her wife Yasmin decided they wanted to have a baby and they been to explored some possible options for conceiving. As they were a same sex couple there were a few different paths they could explore. While Yasmin wanted to have children, she wasn’t particularly interested in actually carrying a baby, whilst Mel really wanted to carry a baby. So they decided to go down the path of partner IVF. Partner IVF involved Yasmin’s eggs being collected, a third party donor being selected for fertilisation and Mel then carrying their baby.

During the IVF process Yasmin developed hyperstimulation syndrome and became quite unwell. To hear how Mel and Jasmine took Hypnobirthing Australia course through Belly2Birth with Shari Lyon and how their birth unfolded, tune into this week’s episode

A Very Ultra Summer With... Mavournee Hazel
Hello angels. In the latest installment of our #VeryUltra summer, we’re talking to the talented, wonderful Mavournee Hazel. Mav is, to us, the definition of ‘Very Ultra’—firstly, just, aesthetically (if you’re one of her 90,000 Instagram followers you’ll already be obsessed with her style). More importantly, she is one of Australia’s most talented young actresses, regularly dubbed ‘The Next Margot Robbie’. That’s, in part, because she had a three-year stint on Neighbours, and has recently broken out on her own starring in the critically acclaimed Aussie drama series Halifax: Retribution. Refreshingly, Mavournee says her sights aren’t necessarily set on cracking it in Hollywood—she has a long-time love of the Australian film and TV, and is passionate about supporting the local industry. She’s also an advocate for diversifying our media landscape, and—inspired by the likes of Phoebe Waller-Bridge—has aspirations to produce and direct projects about complicated female characters. Mavournee is hilarious, a total open book, and extremely candid about her own mental health struggles—we absolutely adored this conversation and can’t wait for you to listen.  This episode is bought to you by our friends at Ultra Violette, who have partnered with After Work Drinks for the whole summer.

What you actually need to pack in your hospital bag (and what to expect) with midwife, Luka McCabe
Getting prepared for the hospital - what to expect and what to pack.  *Episode Notes* Beyond the Bump is a podcast brought to you by Jayde Couldwell and Sophie Pearce! A podcast targeted at mums, just like you! A place to have real conversations with honest and authentic people.  In our fifty-eighth episode of Beyond the Bump, we chat to Luka McCabe. You may already know her; she runs the page Boob to Food and we’ve had her before on the poddy. In this episode with Luka, we chat from a midwife's perspective. We talk to her all about getting prepared for the hospital, what to expect and what to pack! We hope you absolutely love this episode! If you would like to get your hands on Luka’s, ‘a midwife’s guide to packing your hospital bag’, you can download it for FREE by clicking HERE. *Goodies mentioned:* Tena and Depend adult diapers Modi Bodi  Deiji Studios Love To Dream Sleep Suit  Nutra organics bone broth Follow us on Instagram at @beyondthebump.podcast to stay up to date with behind the scenes and future episodes. This episode of Beyond the Bump is brought to you by Fisher-Price: A massive thank you for Fisher-Price’s ongoing support and sponsorships of our wonderful podcast.  For those of you who haven't listened to our bespoke five-part miniseries for Fisher-Price, head to any of the podcast apps and you can catch up on any of the Beyond Play episodes there. You will not be disappointed.   We chatted to Fisher-Price Play Lab experts during these episodes about different milestones and helpful ways to play with your children at each stage of life. We also chatted to inspirational mothers, Turia Pitt and Jacinta Franklin about all things motherhood.  My personal favourite parts were their My Kids Did What and Parenting Confession segments because it made us all feel normal when our kids completely humiliate us, or when we completely screw up as parents.   We've been super lucky to work with Fisher-Price over the last year and we've really gotten to know and love their range of amazing products.  We’d like to highlight a collection of their amazing toys they called Linkimals. They're a super cute way to teach little ones about shapes, counting colours and first words. What could be better than a kid learning to count from a sloth?  And what's better? When Linkimals animals get together, they all talk to each other. They sing, they light up. It's like a real-life Toy Story.  If you have an infant or toddler, nine months or old, Linkimals is perfect for hands-on play, helping your bubs learn shapes, colours, numbers, and so much more.  You can check out the full range of Fisher-Price Linkimals at Target.

Body positivity is HARD
Body positivity is surprisingly complex. It's not as simple as repeating a self-love mantra to yourself every morning and every night; in fact some days it can be a battle between the negative thoughts and the positive ones. It can feel like a tennis match - a bad thought comes straight for you at speed and you've got to quickly whack it out of your brain with a positive one. Some days those negative thoughts are coming at you non-stop and you feel defeated, other days you're on top of your game and the positive thoughts easily outnumber the negative ones. I always preach how important it is so take care of yourself and appreciate the body you have, but the truth is, sometimes that can be really, really hard, and I never want people to think they've failed if they have a few days, or weeks, where they've felt like they've lost that battle. We're human, and we're going to have days where everything we've learnt and all the progress we've made goes out the window. I've had a few of those days recently, so I wanted to share with you my approach to combatting those thoughts and getting myself back on track. It's important to remember that body positivity is something that most people will probably need to work on for the rest of their lives, as society changes the goal post of what is considered 'beautiful', and we're faced with the reality of whether or not we fit that image. I'm really happy with how this podcast came out, and I encourage you to listen to the end. If you did enjoy, please subscribe, rate and review! :)
