Changing the Birth Narrative
59 min

What happens in birth? Why are we so afraid of it? Do we need to be that afraid of it? Can you really have a calm, empowered experience? Does it hurt? Will I tear? What are my choices? This episode looks at the FAQ’s and the current conversation around birth, breaking down the culture of fear and dread and questioning the current dynamics through the lens of #metoo and whether birth can be a feminist issue. From the widely differing stats of different birth choices and their respective outcomes to hypnobirthing, tearing, birth plans and doulas, this episode looks to guide all women through their thinking and create a positive outlook for all of us.

Bullet Points | How to Make a Habit
There has been a lot of chat in DMs and on email about habits in the last few weeks, so I thought it’d be a good idea to take a look at the ways in which you can feel out whether a habit is right for you. We’ve all had to adjust this year, with varying degrees of restrictions and lockdowns but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible to weave new and helpful habits into our new normal. In this episode I share the six strategies that I think can help you make a habit stick or, perhaps more crucially, how to tell if it’s just not for you, including: * Starting small and easing your way into whatever it is you’re trying. * Giving yourself a timeframe. * Attaching your new habit to something you already do and enjoy doing. * Keeping a visual log of your habit as you do them. * How a little accountability can help make a habit take root and give you a sense of satisfaction from day one. * Figuring out what might get in your way before you begin so you can plot a course around, or through, it. As ever, I’d love to know what you think whether that’s in the comments below, on DM or via email. I make this podcast for YOU and if there’s anything you’d like to hear on this subject, or any other, please feel free to let me know.
