Autism Spectrum Disorder(ASD) affects one in every 59 children in the United States. It’s a disorder that is often highlighted in the media and routinely discussed among parents, but how many people can say they truly understand what life with ASD is like? Becky Cook, the executive producer of Fox 5 news at 10 and Sarah Clark-Schwartz creator of the blog, “[Unexpectedly Autistic](https://unexpectedlyautistic.com/)”, are both moms to autistic children. This episode is a window into their world: A candid, complex, compassionate conversation that may you also thinking, “The world needs more people with autism.” Also watch: [FOX 5 SPECIAL: Life On The Spectrum](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCkoHLaHs94)
It’s a condition that affects a third of new moms... making you look pregnant long after you’ve lost your excess baby weight. Most moms think they just need to up their ab crunches to see their pre-baby abs, but it turns out regaining control of your body postpartum can be much more complicated than just shedding pounds. On this episode of All Good in the Motherhood, we are talking to fitness expert and personal trainer Brooke Taylor about diastasis recti: what it is, how to heal it and how doing so will help you to regain your core.
Moms and Dads, I’m going to let you in on a little secret breastfeeding is the dirty little secret of new motherhood for SOME moms… and I’m one of them. Since the day my son was born, I have felt a real sense of responsibility towards breastfeeding…and a real guilt when my 4 day old son went on a nursing strike. I have laughed, cried and screamed over breastfeeding. There are days where I have loved being able to provide for my child in this way—and others where I thought, WHAT THE HELL AM I DOING? I committed to it in the hospital and I’m not a quitter… but to call it natural is honestly, comical. I knew from the get-go I needed help. So I called on the best person I could think of: [Sheri Bayles](http://laughandlearn.com/about/) who happens to be one of the most well-known lactation consultants in the new York city area. Look, she primed me during labor and Matthew flew out of me in 3 pushed/5 minutes. If she could work that magic I thought, SURELY she’ll help me breastfeed. We’re taking a look back on my breastfeeding journey and what a ride it’s been. It’s my true honor to introduce you to Sheri Bayles.

It’s one of the most important relationships in your child’s life, and yet, it’s one you usually initiate before he or she even arrives.

What REALLY happens during labor? It’s one of the first questions I asked my mom friends. And boy! Did I get an earful. But you’d be hard pressed to find that kind of intimate info in a pregnancy book or on a perfectly curated Instagram page.

I’m talking breast feeding today. Like all Moms I want what is best for baby but breast feeding isn’t always an option for some women. So what are our options?
