#172 | Our Sexual Energy as The Secret Weapon to Our Best Birth and Best Life with Kim Anami Sex and birth are inextricably linked. Both functions operate optimally under the same conditions: trust, safety, security, surrender. Furthermore, they both require oxytocin. So it is no wonder that birth can actually be the biggest oxytocin rush and/or orgasm of your life. But the importance of healthy sexual energy goes far beyond birth. It is also the key to our best relationship and our best life. Kim Anami is a holistic sex and relationship coach whose thirty years' experience has been dedicated toward working with couples to show them how to harness their sexual energy as the ultimate power source of their lives. As Kim states, "When we are disconnected from our sexual energy, we are operating at a deficiency.  Conversely, when we are connected to our sexual energy we are operating on all cylinders. It is our life force."  So why do so many of us struggle with sexual desire, especially post-baby? How many of us are going through the motions of sex as opposed to building intimacy and fueling our maximum sexual life force? And how can we keep this sexual power alive as we go through postpartum, early parenthood and old age? Kim is emphatic that everyone can - and should - be experiencing earth-shattering, life-altering orgasms as an integral component of a whole, healthy lifestyle. Tune in today - for sure at a lower volume if the kids are around - to hear Kim's roadmap to keeping your sex life and relationship thriving...and if you ever wondered what "birth rape" means or what a cervical orgasm feels like, now is your chance to learn.Kim Anami**********This show is sponsored by:Silverette USA*DYPER*NOM Maternity*Vyana Infant Massage*Wildbird.co*Beautiful Births and Beyond*Postpartum Soothe**Use promo code DOWNTOBIRTHConnect with Cynthia and Trisha at:Instagram: @downtobirthshow on InstagramEmail: Contact@DownToBirthShow.comCall: (802) 438-3696 (802-GET-DOWN)Work with Cynthia:Email: Cynthia@HypnoBirthingCT.com Text: 203-952-7299 to RSVP to attend a free information session live on Zoom.

#173 | Obstetric Violence with Home Birth Midwife Anne Margolis, CNM, RN Anne Margolis is a Certified Nurse Midwife, author, and trauma specialist who has been catching babies for over twenty-seven years. Anne began as a nurse, whose first birth experience ended in a fourth degree episiotomy and vacuum delivery after being told she needed an emergency cesarean because her baby's heart rate was decelerating.  She was so "checked out" due to stress and shock that Anne describes her first birth as an out-of-body experience. Her baby was born with normal APGARs, which immediately refuted her doctor's fetal distress diagnosis, and she was left completely traumatized in the aftermath. This led her to develop a program for birth trauma healing and turn to home birth midwifery practice, where she could put the mother at the center of the decision-making process. She joins us today to share stories of obstetric violence and redemptive births alike, and to discuss how women can shift their mindsets and make the commitment to birth their babies on their terms, no matter where they choose to give birth.Instagram: HomesweethomebirthNatural Birth Secrets: An Insiders Guide on How To Give Birth Holistically, Healthfully and Safely, and Love the Experience!

Dealing with Depression and Making Art with Dara Owen In today’s episode of the “Helping Families Be Happy” podcast, host Dr. Carla Marie Manly (A practicing Clinical Psychologist, Wellness Advocate, and Author based in Sonoma County, California) talks with guest Dara Owen (A Filmmaker, Musician, Writer, and Comedian). Dara talks about how he uses his creative talent including many of them to help families to be happy. Also, he talks about how he dealt with depression for decades from the time he was a young child, till he was a teenager.
 
Episode Highlights
01:48 – Dara says, he has always been an artist, even though he didn't acknowledge it when he was growing up, because it wasn't something that was openly supported in his household as a profession.
03:57 - When Dara was six years old, they moved to Cork city.
05:00 – Dara explains how he came to the US.
07: 10 – Dara mentions that he has never regretted moving to the US.
10:08 – Dara says, he is prone to depression, and he can't just get depressed with everything else that he was doing. He tried other jobs, and he just thought he has to try to at least express this creativity whether it becomes a profession or not.
12:56 – Dara ended up working in the creative arts and got into a college in Australia. He studied for four years at Melbourne University. 
14:09 - During the period when Dara was studying, he started doing stand-up comedy, and that opened up the professional world for him.
16:07 - Dr. Carla says about Dara that if he had taken a linear path of being a Dentist then how much more difficult it would be for him.
19:19 - If Dara had found his true calling there, possibly never would have left that place, and then he would have missed out on so many experiences, says Dara.
21:22 - People who don’t suffer from depression, are blessed in his opinion and lucky in many ways. They don't understand what depression is, states Dara.
23:41 – Dara says, it was recommended by a teacher of him or a Headmaster at a certain school to his mother that he should seek professional help.
25:03 – Dara’s mother said, thinking about what's best for him and his future to get on with it. He didn't know that until he was an adult and going through other bugs of depression and talking to his mother about it.
27:07 – Dara says, his Catholic education was maybe what brought him to that place.
30:27 – Dara says, being an entertainer helped a lot because being forced to get up in front of people, when he had professional engagements and express himself, helped get it out of him.
33:20 - When one suffers from depression, it’s a lifelong thing, one is never cured. One just learns to deal with it better as time goes on, says Dara.
34: 37 – Dr. Carla says there are still so many people who believe that depression is something to be gotten over that why don't you just be happy? 
36:33 - Each time we go through a phase of depression, it can last up to maybe three or four months, says Dara.
38:00 - Sometimes depression comes out of nowhere and they suddenly start thinking we’re fine, states Dara.
40:46 – Dara states that he doesn't think his dad would mind him speaking about this because they're being so open and suffered terribly from depression.
43:30 - It feels better at the moment, then the next day it's back and the negative self-talk is back to self-soothing of that type is not the solution, says Dr. Carla.
45:34 – Dara says that he is probably mild manic depressive but controllable.
47:25 – Dr. Carla has so much respect for what Dara has shared. It is so much information and the heart he has imparted.
49:44 – Dr. Carla asks Dara to share a bit about filmmaking and how that gives him joy.
53:32 – Dara mentions that this comedy and his other films too, could be watched by families. There's nothing in there that somebody might be restricted.
55:58 – Dara shares, that they were all making a connection at that point, and he and Dr. Carla had never met but they connected to those comments.
57:24 – Being with that person in their pain at that moment and being present is the best thing that anybody can ever do, says Dara.</l
"Born Out Of Faith" This nation was born out of faith in God.  Freedom will only continue if that faith remains forthright and strong.  Our nation is declining because it has removed God from His rightful place.  In this episode, Harriett reminds you that you, as parents, play a major role in restoring the faith.

Prep - give them as much information as you know - what will drop off/pick up look like? Who is their teacher? What will their classroom look like? What is their schedule for the day?2. Forecast - Forecast different scenarios - what&apos;s it going to be like to see your friends? What might you say to them? Which parts are making you the most nervous? What will you do if you disagree with your teacher? 3. Follow-up - Talk through their day. Compare how they were feeling about things with how it actually went and help them make those connections.Give your kids as much control as possible going back to school - let them wear what they want, take the lunch they want, etc.Above all else, validate their feelings of anxiety, fear, and excitement and help them work through those big feelings in a healthy way!Subscribe, rate, and review us on Podchaser, Apple,  or wherever you listen to podcasts!Follow us on social media to join the conversation!!!FacebookInstagram

Ep #198:Why consequences aren’t working Many parents give a consequence expecting it will stop the behavior and are surprised when it doesn't. 
Giving an effective consequence isn't easy. In fact, for a consequence to work, it needs to include five key elements: Immediacy, Size, Frequency, Importance, and Varied.
The best way to teach a child isn't through consequences. Because consequences focus on the negative, they can damage your relationships with your child and cause them to have issues with self-esteem and self-doubt. The best way to get a child to create lasting change is through rewards.
Rewards give a child power and encouragement to change because it focuses on what they will receive. Rewards build relationships and set your child up for success.

63. Potty training, bed wetting and constipation: A conversation about pediatric pelvic health with Quiara Smith Whether potty training isn’t going as planned, or you’re just nervous about gearing up to undertake your child’s’ transition out of diapers, that added pressure, frustration and anxiety can create a vicious cycle, making potty learning more difficult— for you and your child.   Here to help identify potential problem areas (physically and emotionally), and how parents can avoid potty training pitfalls, is the owner of Aloha Integrative Therapy, Occupational Therapist Quiara Smith.   Quiara shares incredible insights about when it’s time (or more importantly when it’s too early) to start potty training, the importance of coregulation, and she breaks down the basics of our child’s anatomy and physiology so we can effectively support them through everything from bedwetting to constipation or whatever toileting or pelvic health challenges may lay ahead.     Want to get more from Dr. Sarah Bren?  ✨ Follow Dr. Sarah on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/drsarahbren/ ✨ Subscribe to the weekly newsletter: https://drsarahbren.com/join-newsletter ✨ And check out her website for more free parenting resources: https://drsarahbren.com/resources
62. Motherhood as advocacy: A conversation about paid family leave, abortion access and gun reform with Raena Boston Moms are overwhelmed, exhausted and burnt out. There is a major lacking in systems to support new, working and stay-at-home moms… so basically, that's every mother.   It is important for us to fight for change, but the weight of that constant battle and stream of seemingly never-ending bad news can feel too heavy to carry at times.   Joining me to discuss the advocacy work The Chamber of Mothers is doing, ways you can get involved, and how to find joy in an often turbulent world is the founder of Working Momtras, Raena Boston. If you’ve been feeling helpless or hopeless in light of recent events, I hope this episode makes you feel empowered and renewed in its collective call to action and message of togetherness.     Want to get more from Dr. Sarah Bren?  ✨ Follow Dr. Sarah on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/drsarahbren/ ✨ Subscribe to the weekly newsletter: https://drsarahbren.com/join-newsletter ✨ And check out her website for more free parenting resources: https://drsarahbren.com/resources
Episode 196 Brenda's VBAC + D-MER and Postpartum “Once I knew what it was, that helped. It’s a physiological thing. There’s nothing actually wrong with me. My experience with it was pretty extreme. Our bodies are so amazing and they serve us so well, but there are differences for everybody.”Brenda’s six births include a medicated hospital birth, a crash Cesarean, an unmedicated VBAC, an HBAC, an emergency C-section, and a gentle, planned Cesarean. Her stories are wildly different but all inspiring in their own ways!Brenda also gets raw and vulnerable with us as she shares her intense postpartum experiences with Dysphoric Milk Ejection Reflex (D-MER). Her choice to fight for healing in a positive way has helped her come out of the fog every time.Have you experienced D-MER?Additional linksThe VBAC Link Blog: How to Plan for a Natural Family-Centered CesareanThe VBAC Link Facebook CommunityHow to VBAC: The Ultimate Prep Course for ParentsFull transcriptNote: All transcripts are edited to correct grammar, false starts, and filler words. Meagan: Hello, hello everybody. Welcome to The VBAC Link podcast. This is Meagan, your host, which is so weird to say that it’s just me by myself. I don’t know how long it’s going to take to get used to that, but here I am and I’m still so excited to be with you. We have an awesome episode today. We have our friend, Brenda, and she has a lot of stories to tell you. I am so excited to learn more about all of her birth journeys. She is a mom of six and has had a mixture of vaginal, unmedicated, medicated, home birth, VBAC, and planned Cesarean. All of the things, so we are so excited to dive into her stories today. Review of the WeekMeagan: As usual, we always have a Review of the Week and I am going to be reading that for you today. This is from a mama in Australia. I don’t even know how to actually how to say her username. It’s awesomebarbie. Sorry if I’m botching that, love. Her topic says, “Two angels sent from above.” It says, “Hey, ladies. I’m from Sydney, Australia and I’ve been a silent fan for months now. Ever since having my C-section on November 19th, I have been obsessed with achieving a vaginal birth. Luckily for me, I fell pregnant on July 20th and I’m currently 33 weeks.”“Listening to your podcast has encouraged me to be strong-minded and educated me so much. It has taught me how to self-advocate and stand up for my body. Thank you, guys. I am going for my VBAC in late March. You guys won’t need to stalk me because I will write you guys either way.”I love that because we do. We stalk you guys. “I hope to be on your show soon. Love, Wendy. Sydney, Australia.” It’s so funny because when we read reviews from the past, we do. We love to go back into The VBAC Link Community on our Facebook group and see if they have posted and what the outcome was. So thank you so much, Wendy. We love you back and we are so glad that you have been with us. Brenda’s StoryMeagan: Okay. We are going to turn the time over to Brenda. Before we do, I want to just give you a little sneak peek of what we’ve got for the little bit in the end. There’s my son in the background. So like I said in the beginning, she’s had six kiddos and something that we want to talk about at the end is gentle Cesareans. This is something that I personally had as well with my second C-section and it made all the world of a difference in my experience. And then we also wanted to talk about D-Mer. Hang in and listen to this amazing story and at the end, hang in there because we want to talk about D-Mer a little more. Okay, cute Brenda, are you ready for this? Brenda: I’m ready. Meagan: All right. Well, I will turn the time over to you. Brenda: Okay. So yeah. I’m super excited to talk. I mean, who doesn’t love talking about their children’s births? And so I guess I’m just going to run through. Like you said, I have six kids and each
29. Teaching Kids to Learn from Life Experience is a valuable teacher. It teaches skills such as how to ride a bike, how to find lost shoes, and how to pay for something at the store. Experience teaches children what it feels like to be left out, to win or lose, or to be put on the spot. Unfortunately, though, if parents aren’t careful, they can rob their children of lessons that could be learned from experience because they believe that loving their kids means keeping them from struggles. Parents who continually rescue their children often short-circuit the learning process by intervening too soon. Sometimes parents can accomplish more by doing less. During this episode, parenting coaches Dr. Scott Turansky and Elena Zwetsloot are sharing practical advice and ideas on how to best support your children and how to focus on the end parenting goal, a changed heart. Enjoy this episode and for more information on Elena Zwetsloot, please visit  www.parentingisheartwork.org. For more information on Dr. Scott's ministry and work, follow www.biblicalparenting.org.

EU331: An Unschooling Journey with Jae Williams, Part 2 Jae Williams is a former teacher and new unschooling dad of two young children. I first spoke to Jae when he was about two months into his unschooling journey, in episode 290.



It&#8217;s been a year now and we had so much to catch up on! Jae and I talked about the inner work of deschooling, the joy of an unschooling, routines versus structure, and the way unschooling expands into all areas of life.



Our conversation was so rich that we ended up talking for almost two hours! And so as not to overwhelm you, I&#8217;ve broken up our discussion into two episodes, with the second half coming out next week.



I hope you enjoy learning more about Jae’s journey!



Questions for Jae



Can you give us a bit of an update about you and your family? What is everybody interested in right now?



When we spoke last July, you’d been unschooling for a couple of months. It’s been a year now, and I imagine there have been ups and downs. What have you found to be the most challenging aspect of your unschooling journey so far?



What has been your most valuable a-ha moment so far? And what sparked it?

Is That Normal? Podcast Episode 97 – 3 Big Questions That Change Every Teenager REVIEW We all have questions. Teenagers have LOTS of questions. As parents, one of our biggest challenges is how to answer and direct those questions. Kara Powell and Brad Griffin&#8217;s book 3 Big Questions That Change Every Teenager is here to help!



In this episode we review this book, which is a continuation of previous research work done by Fuller Youth Institute, and discuss how it can help us point our children to the better answers Jesus gives.



In my two decades as a youth pastor, I was asked a lot of questions by teenagers. The three most common were as follows:



“How far is too far to go with my boyfriend/girlfriend?”“Can I have a soda out of the church fridge?”“What is God’s will for my life?”



While I was always glad to address these and the dozens of other questions, what I really wanted to do was help them realize the real questions behind their questions.  Powell and Griffin point out that all of humanity (which includes teenagers) have three basic questions: 



Who Am I? (The Question of Identity)Where Do I Fit? (The Question of Belonging)What Difference Can I Make? (The Question of Purpose)



This research driven book is a must-have resource for youth workers, parents, and concerned adults. In it they help us realize the flaws in how we tend to answer those questions and push us to discover the better answers that Jesus gives. They also include very practical tools to help you ask the young people in your life good questions. It helped remind me all people (young and old) are looking for ways to find identity, belonging and purpose. May we take the time to listen to the questions people are asking and help direct them to the answers Jesus gives! Be Abnormal.
How Motherly Helps New Mothers Liz Tenety, co-founder of Motherly, gives behind-the-scenes insight on trends, what she sees as a big source of struggles for moms, how creating Motherly has influenced her own mothering and how being a mother has influenced her work.

Understanding the Difference in Your Kids I recently released a Reel on Instagram of our two boys sword fighting.  It was under the premise that I usually discourage our boys from fighting, yet I encouraged them to fight with swords and targets on their bodies.  As I watched the videos back, I very easily recognized the difference in fighting styles between the older and younger son.  One was more reserved and calculating, while the other simply berserked his attacks with no interest in hitting the target.  Correlating these behaviors to every day life, it was easy to deduce the differences in our boys and how they handle daily situations.  Stress, discipline, friends, school - each of them uses their own specific personalities to respond to these external stimuli, and if I wasn&apos;t aware of this then it would be difficult to know how to talk to them in times of stress.  We all attempt to raise our children in a similar fashion.  However, we all know at once that this is folly.  Each of our kids handles our normal mannerisms when it comes to handling time-outs, eating behaviors, bed time, school concerns, etc.   Some of our kids may thrive on the way we parent, while others may tumble.  Today I discuss these differences in our kids and how I use that to determine how to manage every day topics with them, be it school, friends, discipline at home, stress, or other situations.  Remember to SUBSCRIBE and LEAVE A REVIEW!  I want to be able to help as many dads and parents out there, and I can&apos;t do it without YOUR help!Interested in more topics not covered here?  Check out my blog at https://www.imperfectdadmd.com  to see if I discussed it there.  Can&apos;t find what you are looking for?  Send me an email either at my website above or at imperfectdadmd@gmail.com and I can try to cover it in my next show.

The Slow Road to a Healthy Relationship: Patience and Kindness Let’s say there’s a partner you’ve had your eyes on for some years. There appears to be mutual interest. Coffee dates are accepted with grace and laughter. The “dates’ go well. And then… nothing. You take this as a sign and move along. Still thinking about this person, but willing to take their scheduling issues as a sign. And then they’re back in your life, for your own reasons, and you’re single and you offer another coffee date. The ask is accepted with the same enthusiasm and glee as before, and there’s a promise to “get on my calendar and find the time.”

What Is a Good Job Worth? Inspired by a Follow the Herd question [https://www.followtheherd.org/game/], we ask: Would you rather have a job you love for $75,000 a year, or a job you hate for $125,000 a year?

TPP 301: Navigating Big Life Transitions with Differently Wired Children (a Solocast) I haven’t done a solocast in a while, but when you talk, I listen, and this topic has been requested by many of you, so I decided to dedicate this episode to talk about navigating big life transitions with differently wired kids. Our family has gone through our fair share of big changes, which you’ll hear all about in this episode, so this is something that I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about. Especially as a parent of a differently wired kid, I know that there are some extra challenges that might come up when their routines, environment, life circumstances, or supports change, and our kids are also more likely to be resistant to changes (even if they are beneficial). So today I’ll be sharing the strategies I’ve personally found helpful while going through big transitions with Asher. In this episode, I talk about key things such as why being honest when communicating with your kid is so important to help them understand and process change, how being vulnerable can be a way to show support, how to validate our kids’ feelings about the changes or transitions, and how to identify their concerns so you can make plans to address them in advance. I also share about what adjustment disorder is and the kind of extra support you might need during transitions. Tilt Parenting Founder & CEO Debbie Reber (MA) is a parenting activist, bestselling author, podcast host, and speaker. A certified Positive Discipline trainer and a regular contributor to Psychology Today and ADDitude Magazine, Debbie’s most recent book is Differently Wired: Raising an Exceptional Child in a Conventional World. Debbie’s Tilt Parenting Podcast is the top performing podcast for parents, caregivers, educators, and professionals raising and supporting neurodivergent children, and has more than 4 million downloads. In November 2018, she spoke at TEDxAmsterdam, delivering a talk entitled Why the Future Will Be Differently Wired. In the summer of 2020, she co-created the Parenting in Place Masterclass series.Things you&apos;ll learn from this episodeThe benefits and growth that can come from navigating big changes as a familyWhy honesty is so important when communicating with your child about big changesWhat to share versus what not to share with your child about the transitions you go throughHow to validate the big emotions and thoughts that big transitions can bring up in your childThe importance of doing your own work as a parent to be able to support our kids during transitionsWhat adjustment disorder is and the extra support you might need to help your child through oneHow being vulnerable with your kids can be really supportive for themIdentifying the concerns that our kids have and coming up with plans to address them in advanceCreating new routines to create security for our kids during big transitions For more info, visit: https://www.tiltparenting.com/session301Support the show
Experiencing a Late Term Abortion: Kate's Story Today&apos;s episode features the story of an extremely challenging pregnancy that ended in a late term abortion, which was difficult for many reasons, and made more so by the politics and legal apparatus around abortion. My guest was well into a pregnancy that felt off to her in ways she could describe, but which didn&apos;t trigger any particular medical action, because first, the diagnosis when it came was for a very rare condition, and secondly, she made it past the 20 week screen with no visible issues on ultrasound. That my guests first pregnancy was visited by a significant hemorrhage and was By comparison, the easier pregnancy gives you some sense. One thing she says that I think bears repeating upfront is that extreme circumstances sometimes lead to extreme actions.

Ep #198:Why consequences aren’t working Many parents give a consequence expecting it will stop the behavior and are surprised when it doesn't. 
Giving an effective consequence isn't easy. In fact, for a consequence to work, it needs to include five key elements: Immediacy, Size, Frequency, Importance, and Varied.
The best way to teach a child isn't through consequences. Because consequences focus on the negative, they can damage your relationships with your child and cause them to have issues with self-esteem and self-doubt. The best way to get a child to create lasting change is through rewards.
Rewards give a child power and encouragement to change because it focuses on what they will receive. Rewards build relationships and set your child up for success.

Your Child is Uniquely Created (PBTR Part 11) - ETB #125 How does your child think? How do they process the world around them? If you have multiple children as I do, you have probably seen that one child can be extremely different from another child in your family. This is because each of your children is uniquely created by God!   This is episode eleven of a series I've been doing on my book, Parenting Beyond the Rules. From the beginning of parenting, I wanted to know how my kids tick and what ticks them off. We have already talked about how the goal is to reach the finish line with your relationships with your children intact. You want them to know that you are their greatest cheerleader and that you are trustworthy. Part of that process is to help each child find how they were uniquely created and this requires a lot of observation on your part.   Let's talk about how to observe and support your kids in finding out who they are uniquely created to be.
