Today we chat with Alyce Thorp, who's training includes a masters in library science, a love for the outdoors, and a desire to learn about nourishing our minds and bodies.
Alyce mentions the following during our conversation:
Health at Every Size (HAES) author of book is Linda Bacon
authors Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch
Susun Weed, herbalist, wise woman tradition
- author of Healing Wise (among others) but the main one I talked about today
Trigger warning: today's show with my old friend Sam Chau discusses perinatal mood disorders, anxiety, suicide, breastfeeding, motherhood and a lot of poop. This is an episode longer than usual. But when a new mom talks, we all need to listen.
Please visit Welcome Mama's support page for information on our local groups, Postpartum Resource Center's website, and WNY Postpartum for additional assistance. And as always, please consult with your doctor.
Today we'll kick back and relax with Melissa Carrick, a doula, massage therapist, educator and overall badass. Melissa is part of the Buffalo Doula Collective while maintaining her own business Wellness Within, offering doula services, massage, yoga, placenta encapsulation and today's topic: education.
