What You Need to Know About Your Baby’s Microbiome (with Toni Harman) Have you ever heard of the infant microbiome? Do you know what it is? Or why it matters? If not, don’t worry (most people don’t know too much about it).

To join me to share her incredible wealth of knowledge is Toni Harman, award-winning documentary filmmaker, author, and digital course creator. Her documentary MICROBIRTH has been broadcast around the world, her books have been translated into multiple languages and over 30,000 health professionals are currently enrolled in her online school, called MICROBIOME COURSES.

Overcoming Feelings of Grief if You Aren't Able to Breastfeed or Chestfeed We are talking about grief and trauma when breastfeeding or chestfeeding just doesn’t work out the way we thought it would.

My guest is Professor Amy Brown, author of The Positive Breastfeeding Book and Why Breastfeeding Grief and Trauma Matter. She joins me to discuss grief, trauma, why it happens, and what we can do to prevent it or heal from it.

Learn More about Dr. Amy Brown

Professor Amy Brown is based at Swansea University in the UK where she leads the new research centre ‘LIFT’: Lactation, Infant Feeding and Translation. As a psychologist, Amy’s research explores the importance of pregnancy and the first year postpartum, focusing on how we can better support parents with infant feeding, understanding and caring for their baby and their own mental health. Amy has over 100 academic publications and is author to soon to be nine early parenting books focusing on infant feeding, parenting and mental health.

Continuing Nursing When You Don't Produce Enough Milk Hey it's Kelly Carvell, welcome to the very first episode of my rebranded podcast: The Lactation Nerd Podcast. Quick question for you, when you were getting prenatal care, did you receive a breast or chest assessment from your provider to check for any risk factors that could complicate your lactation journey? My guess would be that you did not, as most of us don't. It's not standard practice, at least not here in the U.S., but it really needs to be.

There are a few markers your provider, or lactation consultant, can look for that could mean you may struggle to produce milk. Knowing prenatally you have low supply indicators could save a baby’s life, a new parent’s sanity, and give them the opportunity to get comfortable with a combo feeding plan if they would still like to partially provide their milk if they don’t end up producing enough. Sadly, many, like my guest Kaia Lacy, don’t find out until it is much too late.

Meet my guest:
Kaia is a motherhood blogger whose focus is infant-feeding with chronic low milk supply, advocating for more low-supply education and research, and family support. She was diagnosed with insufficient glandular tissue (IGT) following the birth of her first child and has since committed herself to amplify the experiences and supporting families like hers. Kaia is currently pursuing a Lactation Counselor Certification through the Healthy Children Project.
