Preparing for the Reality of the Postpartum Time, Altered Rhythms + Practical Support
Preparing for the Reality of the Postpartum Time, Altered Rhythms + Practical Support
In this solo episode, I reminisce and offer advice about the postpartum time: what mothers and babies really need, why it is SO important to prepare for, and what the reality often looks like compared to what we think it'll be like. As I write this, there's so many other things I want to share about, but this is a start! I talk about: - Romanticizing vs. reality - Altered rhythms of the postpartum/newborn time - The postpartum time as integration, reflection, bonding + rite of passage completion - Creating your postpartum sanctuary - things to consider about support, food + breastfeeding - Reflections on the sacredness of the postpartum time As I mentioned at the end, if you have anything to add/share or want to hear more about any of these topics in depth, reach out at hello@bethanywilde.com human experience, rite of passage, timelessness, lineage ------------------------ Thanks so much for listening.

Corie's Freebirths + Healing Her Family through an Ancestral Diet
Corie's Freebirths + Healing Her Family through an Ancestral Diet
Corie shares the stories of the births of her three children, her choice to freebirth after the birth of her first child, and her journey of healing herself and her family through transitioning from a vegan to a more ancestral way of eating. You'll love her stories of simple, sacred birth and how her mother-intuition led the way. Corie is a mother of three who awakened her portal of intuition through the pregnancies and births of her children. Beginning with the illness and eventual passing of her mother during her teenage years, she recognized the gaps in the medical industrial system when it comes to healthcare. This experience led her to birth her first baby at home with a midwife and doula.  Strength and independence led her to freebirth her last two children solely in the presence of her supportive husband. Toward the end of her first pregnancy, she adopted a vegan lifestyle, and after several years and a second baby, she found herself concerned for her own health and the health of her children.  After leaving the diet dogma behind for traditional nutrient dense foods, she has found natural ways to support her and her family’s health and healing.

Rachel, originally from the UK, shares the story of her first son's birth in her home in Nicaragua. She talks about birthing her first child with an 82-year-old local elder midwife, and then how things cascaded after birth.

Finding Womb + Spirit Healing After Pregnancy Loss
Finding Womb + Spirit Healing After Pregnancy Loss
I talk about unintentional (miscarriage) and intentional (abortion) pregnancy releases - my experiences and suggestions for finding womb + spirit healing after. This is an expansive topic, and just a stream of consciousness-type episode on some aspects of processing and integrating these experiences.

Gathering Her Strength: Reighn's Stories of Birth, Resilience, and Nourishment
In this episode, Reighn shares the stories of her births and how they have led her to the woman she is today, how she has found power and freedom through her experiences, and we'll hear how it has led her to the work she does today of whole woman holistic health through detoxing the body and nourishing with foods. Reighn is a former apartment dwelling, medicalized birthing, vegan-turned-animal-based, wild woman homesteader. The birth of her first son propelled her into a sense of power and freedom she never believed women could hold, allowing her to let go of old patterns and create the woman she knew she always was. After healing her own health issues and those of her first son, Reighn now works with women to detox and simplify health in their bodies, minds and homes, and heal using their intuitive nature.  You can find her on Instagram @reighn.healthwitch and on her website at www.simplywell.me --------------------------------- You can check out my Holistic Pelvic Wellness practitioner training and get my free guide: "How to Become a Women's Wellness Practitioner" on: www.bethanywilde.com Connect with me + my writings more regularly at: www.instagram.com/bethanyjanewilde Thank you so much!

Walking an Instinctual Pregnancy + The Gifts it Brings
In this solo episode, I talk about my feelings on the role of a mother-led, autonomous, instinctual pregnancy. Topics include: An instinctual pregnancy as initiation into mother-power How modern birth culture infantilizes mothers, de-sacralizes the experience, and decenters their intuitive knowing When there's birth trauma External vs. developing internal knowing What happens when a woman knows pregnancy birth and motherhood in this way?
