episode 14: #014 Covering ALL the bases - Pre-baby conversations


There is just so much ground to cover before you add a human to your household! Hanna and Megan react to Melissa Medjuck's list of conversations to have before having a baby. They talk about expressing your needs around shared responsibilities, finances, sex, (so you know, nothing too serious.. woof) and how important it is to have ongoing conversations between co-parents.

episode 10: #010 Please don't call me "Mama." - This podcast is a hypocrite.


We discuss why pregnant people and mothers are often called "mama" instead of their name! (AHHH) There's elements of power, identity, socialization, and just a lack of time and consideration in it. And also a whole slice of folks who love it. Turns out different people have different reactions to things... here we are again. This is the instagram account whose post we reference: https://www.instagram.com/refugemidwifery/ The post is from March 4th, 2021...

Megan talks about how and why she decided on where and with whom to give birth, how she feels about those decisions in retrospect and what she might do differently next time 'round.

episode 8: #008 A whole new world - The first 12 hours as a family of three.


Megan describes delivering the placenta, the 'golden hour,' newborn exam and taking home their brand new human! She talks about her and her partner's first decisions as new parents and what it felt like to hold their little one for the first time. If you are squeamish and don't want to hear Megan talk about tearing, this is the timeframe to skip: 31:14-33:35.  It's not bad. It's really not. And it's actually a good part of the story to exemplify the amazing care Megan received by her midwife...
