20. Holy Reclamation of our Postpartum Birthright - Nicole Parker
20. Holy Reclamation of our Postpartum Birthright - Nicole Parker
My Talk: "Altered Rhythms: Preparing for Postpartum Emergence" - Nourished Postpartum Summit (Plus 15 other RICH video conversations) In this special mid-week bonus episode in honor of the Nourished Postpartum Summit that I am part of (along with other incredible women), I'm talking with Nicole Parker, the wise mama of 4 who created it all. I wanted to hear about her lived experience and insight. As you'll listen, this woman has a deep love for this sacred time, and wants to see a cultural resurgence around the postpartum conversation that truly centers mother-baby. We talk about: - Nicole's path into early motherhood, and loss as her first postpartum experience - How she describes her first postpartum as bliss and holy reclamation after a traumatic birth - "I didn't know humans could access pleasure like this, that we were capable of feeling this good." - How she set herself up for the most ease, bringing her partner into awareness on what postpartum looks like - The father as guardian and protector of mother-baby in the postpartum - Guiding question: "If your solution for support is anything that steps between mama and child, that's not actual support. Great motive, but felt sense is one of disruption." - What Nicole claimed in her next postpartum experience, how things change when adding a second child and the felt experience of loss and grief - The postpartum experience of her her 3rd child and how that integration was - Newborn and toddler rhythms, differences and how to weave them together - Sibling integration in the postpartum time and beyond, especially the experience of the first-born - How important it is to prioritize serving new mothers, to show your children and partner what it looks like and making it a core family value - Committing to holding physical stillness, which translates to emotional and energetic stillness - How creating a beautiful postpartum doesn't have to be so hard or exceptional/unattainable - Core pillars of postpartum wellness and vitality - Examining your own template for safety, reception, nourishment - Postpartum care is an *entire* cultural and community prioritization - About the Nourished Postpartum summit as like sitting at the feet of your community "Postpartum is the imprint for motherhood" Nicole is a mother of (almost) four, keeper of sacred postpartum, and an embodied motherhood guide. She believes that we are meant to be well nourished as mothers, and that by surrendering to the brilliant design  of our bodies, we can reclaim the inherent gift of vibrant, sustainable, flourishing motherhood. She walks with women all along the continuum of motherhood, preconception and beyond, as they revive and restore this truth for themselves. ------------------------ Thanks so much for listening.

19. Raising Boys with Honor and Heart: Motherhood and the Male Path - Anjelica Orion
19. Raising Boys with Honor and Heart: Motherhood and the Male Path - Anjelica Orion
Enjoy this expansive conversation from a woman who holds unique perspectives on male-female dynamics and energetics. I'm bringing her to share her philosophy and wisdom on the topic of how to raise boys well (and if you have daughters, check out episodes 10 + 15). Here's what we talk about: - Where Anjelica is at in her 2nd pregnancy - Going away from the narrative of depletion in motherhood, not accepting the martyr mother, and meeting needs of ALL members of the family - How our body is a reflection of our energy stores, and the importance of preserving the maiden energy throughout the life cycle - Her feelings about child spacing + the reality of infancy as up to 3 years - How she feels her dharma is to be an advocate for boyhood, and her philosophy of raising boys - Viewing character structure through the lens of astrology in addition to biological sex - Current state of maturity in modern boys - Her issues with the *modern* form of nuclear family - Biological connections to gender roles and her issues with traditional gender roles - How she sees the essential roles for mothers of boys in early childhood; cultivating in boys a relationship to the feminine that isn't dependent on his successes and failures - Different ages + stages: natural desire to have additional male mentor(s), skill-building, to be tested - Contrast of the female nature which tends to be harmonizing/social cohesion - Inherent energies of young boys; honoring their natural aggression and working with them rather than suppressing, how boys are often scapegoated - What the nursing relationship means for boys - The importance of a healthy mother-father relationship and what projection occurs when it's unhealthy - The spiritual and social scope of male-female relating and modern issues - Inherent male archetypes to connect with in boyhood Quotes: "Once my child was two, the entire philosophy of self-led regulation pretty much collapsed. A child cannot live in a world of Mother alone after the primary stage of infancy. " "The defining quality of manhood is Honor" ABOUT Anjelica is an advisor on polarity dynamics between men and women, and the multidimensional healing process of the individual. She is also an advocate of free birth, child-led education, and regenerative lifestyle practices. As a trained yoga and massage therapist who led herself through a debilitating healing crisis in her teens, she integrates many aspects of body-based spirituality into her offerings. Her primary roles in daily life are as Mother, Wife, Homemaker, & Muse and she sources much of her teachings from immersion in these traditional occupations. Through years of supporting private clients, she has developed group study programs online with comprehensive material most commonly required in the personal and marriage development process. She offers e-books, guided meditations, and class recordings at nymphprayer.com.

12. Corie's Freebirths + Healing Her Family through an Ancestral Diet
12. 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.
