EP49- 4F’s Given with Adriana…

September 16, 2020

A conversation with a mama blogger from Miami, Adriana, in my parent’s closet! You never know where 2020 will take you these days and for this interview, I ended up having to record in my parent’s closet! You can watch the episode with video on YouTube and we laughed our way through it. 

Adriana is a mama focused only on 4 F’s: Family, Fashion, Fitness and Food. She takes us through her beautiful journey into motherhood and how she is sharing that journey with her community through her blog. Her stories are relevant and real to all mamas out there, no matter what your situation. They are also short and sweet posts that are easily digestible. 

Her bright Miami essence permeated through the screen and it was such a joy to connect with her...

EP48- The Boobie Cheerleader…

September 10, 2020

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.

EP47- Breastfeeding, it’s between you and your baby…

EP47- Breastfeeding, it’s between you and your baby…

September 2, 2020

Welcome back to YEAR TWO of The Pumping Podcast! Thank you for your support and dedication to the podcast. 

In honor of last month, August, I am celebrating National Breastfeeding Month and kicking it off with this episode and my dear friend, Emily Roberts. Not only is Emily a strong and powerful mama of one, who is a champion for breastfeeding mamas, she also has her own store that she has opened, Emmy’s Apothecary. Check out the Etsy link for handmade vegan room sprays, candles, chemical free cleaners and more!

Beginning Sept. 3rd until Oct. 6th (30 days), she is offering 20% off her entire shop! 

FREE shipping for orders $35 and up...and...a FREE gift for orders $40+. 

Promo code is PUMPNATION20

Follow her on Instagram: @EmmysApothecary

 

Emily’s mantra is: Manifest Your Own Transformation and that is something that she has embodied fully since I’ve known her and especially since the birth of her daughter. 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…

EP45- Functional fertility, the root cause…

July 29, 2020

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. 

 

If you or someone you know are struggling with fertility issues, check out the links below to connect with Sarah and her team.

EP44- I love you, but that was traumatic…

July 22, 2020

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…

EP42- Becoming…finding YOU in motherhood…

July 8, 2020

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…

EP41- A military mom…

July 1, 2020

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…

EP40- C-section, the unwritten birth plan…

June 17, 2020

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.

***Given the current social climate, Susannah would like to shed light on and recognize that black mothers experience disproportionately high rates of C-sections (35.4% of live births by black mothers were by C-section from the latest data) and death related to pregnancy or childbirth. 

As a white mother, she feels it is important to use her voice and any opportunity she can, to address the inequality MOC's experience, even if it's sharing a few links for awareness:
