BBL 001: Welcome to the Birth, Baby, and Life Podcast!

In this episode of the Birth, Baby, & Life podcast I introduce the show!!

I tell you what to expect from the show and what format it will take. I also talk a little about who I, Kristen, am, and why I'm so interested in pregnancy/birth/babies and podcasting. I tell you why podcasts fit into a mom's life so well 🙂

I discuss two recent news stories, one a re-published photo essay. This feature was originally done in the 1950's and shows the day-to-day life of a nurse-midwife in the rural South of the United States. I discuss why it's poignant in many ways, and what it's a good reminder of for modern day women.

The second story is from a celebrity mom who chose a natural birth her for twin boys. The story is empowering and a celebration of what's possible (without being condescending).

I wrap up the inaugural episode with a great quote from a doctor on how to get a “stuck” baby moving again. He says it works so often it's “crazy not to try it!”

In this episode I cover:

  • What you'll hear about pregnancy
  • What you'll hear about childbirth
  • What you'll hear about baby care
  • And what you'll hear about juggling life as a busy mom and as a modern woman
  • How to think about childbirth
  • An essential read as you prepare for your baby
  • A must-try tip for getting a “stuck” baby moving during labor!

I had a great time recording this first episode and getting it ready for you.  Even though it's hard for me to go back and listen to it (I think I sound silly!), I'm reminded that I'll get better with time.  I'd love to hear your feedback on this episode and what you'd like to hear about in future episodes.  Have a guest you really want to hear from?  Let me know!  Thank you so much for listening and letting me share about myself and the new podcast.
