Episode #29 | Creating The Birth Hour Podcast + A Bit About Bryn Huntpalmer

Hey, guys! So happy to share this special episode with Brynn Huntpalmer, the mama and podcast host behind The Birth Hour. I first found her podcast through the doula hosting my birthing class who recommended my husband and I both listen to a few births from start to finish.

From the very beginning, I fell in love. She holds space for women to share their own birth journeys freely and without judgement. It's a safe space to celebrate everyone's individual stories of love, loss, or trauma for others to relate to. 

Um, it's pure magic. You also DO NOT have to be a parent to appreciate these episodes or learn something. Personally, I still listen to these episodes every week!

We also chat about one of Brynn's other passions: essential oils. If your skeptical about them, I invite you to take a listen and maybe give Brynn's essential oil account a follow because I've learned so much!

Episode #28 | Getting to Know My MOM Vicki Rowe

It's finally here! My most famous guest.

MY MOM.

This was such fun episode for me to record, and it was actually my very first in person podcast interview, so you'll hear us sharing a mic (heads up). We chat about my mom's life and her philosophies for feeling fulfilled and being present. 

No but for real, she is definitely one of my favorite people on this planet and, well, she gave me life. Literally. Being a mama myself really makes my mom even more special these days. Let me know what you think of these types of episodes! My mom is already planning on our second time around. I'm actually fairly certain she's gonna come at me about how much I edited out, but honestly, I kept all the juicy details of her life.

Episode #16 | Diet Mentality, Bodies in the Media, and Why Emotional Eating isn't a Bad Thing with Isabel Foxen Duke

Isabel is a coach and speaker who helps women stop feeling crazy around food. She works intimately with women who struggle to get their faces out of the bottom of the brownie pan after depriving themselves of all sweets and junk food. She helps women quit diet mentality and embrace who they are, the shit in their lives, and how it applies to their food. She gets real, and it's incredible.

o, this is a big one. This is a hugely informative/eye-opening episode, and I can't wait for you to throw your headphones on and dive in.

Fuck headphones. Hook this shit up to two giant speakers, and blast it off the rooftops. We're getting real with Isabel Foxen Duke on diet-binge mentality, why emotional eating isn't necessarily a bad thing, and what we're actually seeing in the media and how it's influencing the way we perceive ourselves.

As I mention in the beginning of the episode, I've been a huge fan of Isabel's work for quite sometime now, and I was so pumped to flow with her on some of these important and deep-ass topics. You guys already know how much I like to talk about body image and food!

I don't want to keep you too long reading this blog post, so I'll let you dive right in!
