Overcoming overwhelm, comparison and fatigue with Dr Libby Quinn

D r Libby Quinn is the founder and Principal Clinical Psychologist of The Women's Psychology Clinic in Northern NSW. Her passion lies in working with and nurturing women, often mothers, with the most up to date and evidence-based therapy that is specifically tailored to their needs. This episode is all about overcoming overwhelm and fatigue as a new mama and why in order for children to thrive and develop we need to prioritise the psychological and emotional wellbeing of the mother. Dr Libby also talks about why identifying your unique values is key in dodging the ever present comparison trap and some things we we can do to reconnect with our partners and why spending time apart is so important.

The truth about Sleep Training with Michelle Jackson (Part 2)

Some call this week's guest 'The Baby Whisperer' and I couldn't agree more. Hand over heart, my transition into motherhood would not have been the same if it weren't for Michelle Jackson. She has been such a constant source of knowledge, wisdom, love and light (with a few f bombs thrown in for good measure!) Michelle is a Registered Nurse, Registered Midwife, Childbirth Educator & Infant Sleep Specialist with over 20 years experience, having worked extensively in both private and public practice in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast. She pretty much knows everything there is to know about babies, so much so that this is Part 2 of the interview, with Part 1 released last week, which was about Michelle's first birth and how it couldn't have been further from what she had envisioned as a midwife. She talked about the difficulties of having a baby in the NICU and her struggle to breastfeed. This week we will give you the low down on what sleep training actually is, because there is a lot of negative misconceptions out there. As always and as Michelle said last week, it's about writing your own story - so you do whatever is right for you and your family. And if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Prolapses and Pelvic Floors - What you need to know with Alison Hanrahan

On today's episode I chat with Alison Hanrahan, the Principal Physiotherapist of Chevron Island Physio here on the Gold Coast. Alison isn't your normal run-of-the-mill physio that just deals with musculoskeletal issues in her patients. She has undergone extensive postgraduate training in the areas of pelvic floor rehabilitation for urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, exercise during pregnancy and the post-natal period, and management of pregnancy-related pelvic pain and pelvic floor pain - all the things very relevant to pregnant mamas and new mamas out there listening to this podcast! If you have pelvic floor issues, then you're definitely going to want to listen to this and if you've yet to have your bub I think it's really important to be across what can potentially happen and things you can do to minimize your risk. This is not to scare anyone out of having a vaginal birth, it's to give you all the information so you can be the most informed you can be. 30% off you i...

Accepting you are enough without a baby with Anna Victoria

Anna Victoria is a fitness professional based in California. She is the creator of Fit Body with Anna Victoria App and has a community of over 1 million strong on social media.
