 Gabrielle Nancarrow on the courage to be vulnerable | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2532

There is power in people and places that hold us when we are at our most vulnerable. Gabrielle Nancarrow is a birth and pregnancy loss doula, circle holder and the founder of Gather, an inclusive space for women and non-binary people to come together and witness one another's journeys. It's a special place. As you'll hear in this conversation, Gabrielle came to this work from a sense of deep inner knowing that the culture and expectations that she was encountering while pregnant were not serving her, and it inspired a shift in her life and career to retrain as a doula to help women and to hold safe spaces. This episode centres around about the power of growing quiet to listen to the deep well of wisdom within, of community care and of allowing ourselves to be held by others - particularly when we're at our most vulnerable. It's a heartfelt, warm and tender conversation. If you'd like to explore Gather's offerings, head to the website at: https://www.gatherwomenspace.com/ or at Instagram at @gatherwomenspace And another note here that this episode deals with themes of pregnancy loss and miscarriage, and that this may be challenging for some people to listen to.

It's an issue that I hold very close to my heart because it's the fear of failure that held me back for a very long time from creating this podcast, and I wanted to share my learnings from facing fear head on - because today this podcast is 12 months old! This means a huge deal to me because I truly didn't know whether anybody would listen to this show when I started it and it had many false starts - I share those in the episodes really honestly - and it's why I'm so thrilled to announce the podcast has been listened to 100,000 times in its first year, which is INCREDIBLE. I honestly can't believe it, imagining thousands and thousands of people in a room listening to this. I'm in awe.

How often do you plan to make some lifestyle changes - only to feel completely overwhelmed by how much there is to do, before doing nothing? Alexx Stuart wanted to reduce the toxins in her everyday life after seeing a lack of transparency in our food system, personal care and cleaning products. However at the time, the decision to reduce her toxic load seemed to be filled with black and white binary distinctions of the what was 'right' and 'wrong' and didn't feel like it was doable in her life. She coined the term 'low tox' as an example of her gentle approach of making small, sustainable, realistic changes - and the term is now widely used today. She's filled with inspiring advice on the everyday changes you can make to reduce the impact of toxins in your body, home and on the planet.

 Rhea Dempsey's birth changed her trajectory | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2825

Today's episode is a treasure, honouring a woman at her most powerful and profound - when in labour. I was invited to guest host an episode of the heart-stirring Dumbo Feather podcast earlier this year, interviewing birth attendant, childbirth educator and counsellor Rhea Dempsey. For more than thirty years, Rhea has been helping women/birthing person and their partners to feel empowered and more prepared when navigating child birth. Known around the world for her earthy pragmatism as a birth support attendant and educator, she's attended more than 1,500 births (!) and knows a thing or two about how our attitudes to birth can be better. We cover: • How we can empower women through childbirth and postpartum • How doula's create a space to mother the mother • How a woman's brainwaves change during birth (which is *fascinating*) • Why we need the "love-bomb" hormone oxytocin and how we get it • Using pain as a compass • Listening to the wisdom within the body Rhea has the most poetic and lyrical expressions in the way she describes birth, that I was hanging on every phrase. You'll notice it too, it's a joy to listen to. We spoke about everything from why our attitudes towards birth have changed so dramatically since the 1980s, how we can hold sacred space between a mother/birthing person and their baby, and how we can provide unconditional support however their story unfolds. Enjoy! + Show Notes: • You can learn more about Rhea's work over at Birthing Wisdom • Rhea's conversation with Berry Liberman, Dumbo Feather's heart-stirring editor-in-chief here • You can find out more about Dumbo Feather over at their website, instagram or podcast page.
