This incredible birth story is brought to us today by Louise de Menthon. She shares with us her experience of having an unmedicated, vaginal twin birth.

36. Amy Taylor-Kabbaz: The Transition Into Motherhood ~ Matrescence
Meet Me Downstairs
by Brittany Golding
1y ago
This episode is all about the transition from woman to mother. From maiden to matriarch. Ultimately being defined as Matrescence. It's a topic that is not widely known, yet it should be, and this conversation is in service of that. Those early years of motherhood are often experienced in silence and leave women feeling as though the things they're experiencing are meant to be dealt with alone, or that they aren't doing a good enough job, or experiencing perhaps things that are considered 'normal' and actually shouldn't be. That's what this episode is in service of. The mother, making space for ..read more

Birth, the most epic thing on this planet, and today we are sharing another story. The home birth of Rachael Newsam, who brings us in to her experience from a quiet labor, to a roaring birth. It's such a positive representation of the capabilities of birth when we just give ourselves a chance to feel in-tune with our bodies. When we take ourselves back to the instincts of a completely natural place. Rachael is also a Doula and she shares with us some of her knowledge and thoughts on the system of birth, and how women can reclaim their control in a society that tries to silence.
