EP 316: Reducing Your Chances of Having a Cesarean Birth with Elizabeth Joy
In this episode, Elizabeth is talking all about what 1 hospital did to take their cesarean rate from 28.9% to 12.2% in 12 months. It is important to shed light on this since our cesarean rate is much higher than what the WHO calls for. Cesareans are necessary about 10-15% of the time in the United States, yet they are happening over 33% of the time. This means that about two-thirds of the cesareans taking place are preventable.  Connect with Liz https://www.instagram.com/esandoz/?hl=en https://www.Elizabethjoy.co Get the First Trimester Survival Guide https://elizabethjoy.co/freebie Join the Waitlist https://elizabethjoy.co/join-waitlist Sponsors: Go to jennikayne.com and use the code JOY to get 15% off Resources: https://evidencebasedbirth.com/evidence-on-inducing-labor-for-going-past-your-due-date/ https://evidencebasedbirth.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/Inducing-for-Due-Dates-Handout.pdf Episode 310 with Dr. K - High-Risk OBGYN https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/ep-310-conversations-with-a-high-risk-obgyn-dr-k/id1343507855?i=1000647886023 EP 305: Vaginal Births after Cesareans (VBAC) with Hannah Gill https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/ep-305-vaginal-births-after-cesareans-vbac-with-hannah-gill/id1343507855?i=1000643327228 EP 240: The VBAC Link with Megan Heaton https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/ep-240-the-vbac-link-with-megan-heaton/id1343507855?i=1000583641739 EP 314: Homebirth Transfer Birth Story with Dr. Maggie Hill https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/ep-314-homebirth-transfer-birth-story-with-dr-maggie-hill/id1343507855?i=1000651115226 https://evidencebasedbirth.com/arrive/ https://www.midwiferytoday.com/mt-articles/more-evidence-to-avoid-hospital-birth/ https://www.ontariomidwives.ca/sites/default/files/Clinical%20Topics/Impacts%20of%20the%20ARRIVE%20trial-PUB.pdf https://www.downtobirthshow.com/182-labor-induction-risks-reasons-and-results-with-dr-rachel-reed-phd/ https://www.birthinginstincts.com/blog/creating-more-questions

EP 291: A Holistic Approach to Pelvic Health with Dr. Stefanie McMillin
Stefanie’s passion for women’s health started at an early age, in the form of studying pregnancy and childbirth. This passion is what led her to specialize in urogynecology after receiving a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree. After graduation, she immersed herself in all things women’s health. After countless hours of continuing education courses and extensive training through the Barral Institute, she began utilizing visceral manipulation to help restore health and functionality within the female pelvis and abdominal viscera. She feels strongly that the aches and pains, both emotionally and physically, that come before, during, and after pregnancy can be eased and prevented with gentle manual therapy, education, and guidance. In this episode, we dive into the physiology of birth, the importance of education throughout birth an labor, and where visceral manipulation and physical therapy come into play.  Connect with Dr. Stefanie https://www.fullcirclept.net https://www.instagram.com/doctor_stefanie Connect with Liz https://www.instagram.com/esandoz/?hl=en https://www.Elizabethjoy.co Get the First Trimester Survival Guide https://elizabethjoy.co/freebie Sponsors: Dime Go to https://dimebeautyco.com/ now and enter CHAVA to unlock our discount  Lume  new customers get $5 off Lume’s Starter Pack with code CHAVA at LumeDeodorant.com Get better sleep now with Blissy and use code CHAVA to get an additional 30% off at blissy.com/CHAVA   Why Chava?

EP 289: Sexuality and Motherhood with Pleasure Expert, Susan Bratton
Susan stands firm in the conviction that passion is ageless. However, few things bring lovemaking to a screeching halt faster than the inability to…show up, shall we say.  This can be impacted by birth, motherhood, and so much more. Susan's superpower is her courage. She takes a lionhearted stand for our human right to pleasurable connection. She has the willingness to get nerdy about science/anatomy and is very detailed about lovemaking skills so moms can learn to achieve the pleasure they deserve.  In this episode, I ask Susan about the season of birthing, postpartum, and motherhood and how we can continue to be sexual beings throughout it all.  Connect with Susan: orgasmiccrosstraining.com https://www.instagram.com/susanbratton/?hl=en https://betterlover.com/ https://susanbratton.com/speaking/   Connect with Liz https://www.instagram.com/esandoz/?hl=en https://www.Elizabethjoy.co Get the First Trimester Survival Guide https://elizabethjoy.co/freebie   Sponsors: JenniKayne Our listeners get 15% off your first order when you use code CHAVA at checkout at https://jennikayne.com Dime Go to https://dimebeautyco.com/ now and enter CHAVA to unlock our discount Apostrophe Get your first visit for only five dollars at Apostrophe.com/CHAVA when you use our code: CHAVA references: Ep 227: How MTHFR Genetic Defect Effects Infertility and How Folic Acid Plays a Role with Troy Duell https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/ep-227-how-mthfr-genetic-defect-effects-infertility/id1343507855?i=1000571039134 Why Chava?
