166 | Nikki McCahon Vaginal Delivery, Postpartum Anxiety
Play • 58 min

In today’s episode I chat to Nikki of Dear Muma Project - @dearmamaprohject -  an online community dedicated to creating social support for women as they navigate the transition into motherhood. Nikki talks candidly about her birth, her traumatic hospital experience and the lack of support which resulted in a postpartum depression diagnosis when her baby was six months old.

Nikki fell pregnant easily and despite a bit of morning sickness in the first trimester and cravings for carbs, watermelon and mineral water, she enjoyed a relatively straightforward pregnancy. She opted for shared care with her GP but in retrospect wishes she had continuity of care with her local birth centre.

Mark Manson // F*ck distribution, future forging and fun with the Fresh Prince of Bel Air
*_RE-RELEASE - As you know, we're re-releasing a few crowd favourites from last year to keep you going during the break in case you missed them. So please ignore any time specific references, although most of our yay is evergreen so hopefully you enjoy as much as I did! _* *>> COMPLETE OUR 2021 SURV-YAY <<* I know some of you will be eye rolling when I say that this is one of my favourite chats to date, but I think you might agree once you actually have a listen. I’m going to have to cut myself short in this intro because there is SO much I could say about why *Mark Manson* is one of my favourite people in the world but the episode itself makes it clearer than I could here. Best known as the author of ground-breaking NY Times Best Seller, *The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck*, I once mistook Mark’s refreshingly anti-self-help approach to life to be the opposite of seizing the yay. In fact, it’s not that he thinks we should give no fucks at all, but choose our fucks more carefully and it’s no surprise that his witty, no bullshit delivery has taken the world by storm. Like all our guests, however, Mark’s way to yay has been anything but predictable going from feeling misplaced in his Texan hometown, getting a compete ego breakdown at music school, starting his working life as a pick up artist all before becoming an author was even on the table. And yet, he’s now sold over 10 million books, changed millions of lives AND has been trusted with writing the *autobiography and first ever full account of the life of Will Smith!!!* Mark is a personality of so many contrast and facets and is open about every one of them including WAY more than I probably needed to know about his bodily functions. I dare you to listen without laughing, you can definitely tell we both lost our marbles more than a few times. In between the hilarity though, there are so many deep, insightful reflections on life that I hope are as groundbreaking to you as they were to me! + Follow *Mark** *here + Buy Mark's books *here* + Announcements on Insta at *@spoonful_of_sarah* + *Join our Facebook community here* + Subscribe to not miss out on the next instalment of YAY!
