Transition to Motherhood:

Stefani shares about how she and her husband planned her pregnancy while she was in the fourth year of her med-school. She experienced anxiety, guilt, and shame from the beginning due to a variety of reasons that she discusses in the episode. Being surrounded by a family who struggled with infertility and being in medical school, Stefani found it difficult to open up to everyone regarding her conception.

Episode Summary:

This podcast also talks about Stefani’s struggle with postpartum depression. She highlights the importance of taking the step in seeking professional help whenever you feel most comfortable. She advises mothers to find a support person whom they can talk to first about what they’re experiencing – spouse, friend, family member.

She also added that she wouldn’t want to pressure any mom into getting help when she’s not ready but to encourage her to talk with non-professionals until she is ready. According to her, giving mothers knowledge is power in the situation and it’s critical to find people that you can truly trust and connect with. Stefani talks about a few studies that show that the higher rate of body dissatisfaction postpartum is directly linked to postpartum depression and anxiety.  She elaborately explains the early signs, the cycle, and the predisposing factors that trigger the development of postpartum depression.

Episode Summary

Wendy:

  • In this podcast,Wendy shares about her difficult pregnancy, a big move from San Diego to Germany and her family’s adjustments while raising a toddler, living in a different culture, and finding time to work and write.

Transition to Motherhood:

  • Wendy shares about her long journey before getting her daughter Anya.She struggled with years infertilityand also suffered from hyperemesis during her entire pregnancy.
  • Wendy shares how difficult it was to deal with hyperemesis and how often other people did not understand what she was going through. She shared how grateful she was for the support from her husband —

                “Men, was he my rock during that time.” ([05:37])

                “And really, at that point, you didn’t wanna see anybody because you just, ‘I felt horrible.’” ([05:46])   – Wendy 

               “I mean, not until my 39th week, did I actually start to feel good. And it was never food. Food never made me sick. It wasn’t the idea of eating that made me sick.“([06:31]) –Wendy

  • Just few days after giving birth, Wendy had to face another challenge – the deployment of her husband. It was a tough time for Wendy, who, at that time, didn’t received much support in those challenging days. On a brighter side, she highlights the one precious gift she had from her pregnancy

                   “Breastfeeding for me was easy.” [08:44]

FEEDING and BABY-LED WEANING

  • Wendy explains what baby-led weaning is about and also the process that comes along with it. She says:

            “It’s whole foods from baby’s first bite.” And what that means is we basically ditched the idea that we needed to puree foods unless the food is naturally pureed or puree-type texture, and the baby’s self-fed.  ([26:55])

  • Wendy added that the big thing with baby-led is identifying choking versus gagging on a child’s ability to self-feed and self-regulate.

            “The biggest thing I love about baby-led weaning is that you are at the plate with them, eating and enjoying the same meal. They are watching and learning from you – the language you’re using, describing the food, embracing the food, enjoying the moment, and early on they’re watching you chew. ([29:12])

Leslie:

  • Leslie shares about her experiences with moving from Nashville to Las Vegas and the uncertainty of their move. Currently, Leslie is in Las Vegas doing sports nutrition, just co-authored Born to Eat, and is doing some nutrition counseling.

Transition to Motherhood:

  • For Leslie, she feels she was lucky to get pregnant easily. At 27 weeks Leslie began to face some serious challenges. She experienced preterm labor and ended up in the hospital and was put on bed rest. She explains in her story how her preterm labor resulted in magnesium toxicity.
  • She also shares about her Caesarean section delivery that resulted in her losing a large amount of blood due to complications caused by fibroids. Her blood pressure sunk and it was a near death experience for Leslie. Thankfully, the baby was delivered safe and Leslie was saved. However, the pain block didn’t work for her and she woke up from a Caesarean section with no pain medication. Leslie is grateful for the advancement in medicine because it allowed she and her daughter survived.Due to this intensely traumatic experience, it has been a long road of recovery for Leslie and we’re thankful she was willing to share her story with us.

FEEDING and BABY LED WEANING

  • Leslie and her husband started feeding solid foods to their daughter and using baby led weaning to enhance the innate ability of their baby to self-regulate and to establish autonomy when it comes to self-feeding.
  • She also mentioned that you can watch the child’s behavior and cues as their way of telling you when they are ready to eat or when they’re also finished. Those are innate cues that the baby is trying to tell you and as parents, you need to be able to support that.

          “But really it’s about fostering their ability to self-regulate and self-feed, so they can gain their own skills and their own body trust.” ([33:33])

          “But I think it’s our job as parents and adults to teach children how to use all foods regardless of the nutritional value in a healthy way.” ([37:13])

          “Let’s teach them how to deal with it. Yeah, are there foods that have different nutritional values than others?Absolutely. But it’s our job to teach them how to deal with foods in a healthy way.”  ([38:05])

About the #BORNTOEAT book

  • Leslie mentioned that in the Born to Eat Book, they try to pair the convenience foods together with the whole foods. They don’t want anybody to feel like they’re doing wrong.
  • The book encourages readers to have their eyes open about diet culture in our own food industry. They discussed about being aware of the diet culture and using our own filters to protect and educate our kids.
  • They did a great job of teaching people how to create a dialogue with all caregivers and all people that may be around the plate with your child.

Episode Summary:

Natalie Hughes is a Personal Wardrobe Stylist specializing in dressing women entrepreneurs. In this episode, Natalie shares about her philosophies, how she started dressing either in personal or virtual basis. She also shared a lot of things she had learned over the years of her styling career.

Natalie learned that she learns a lot about women when they feel good about what they’re wearing – and that is going to look different for every woman. This made her fall in love with fashion, personal style, and dressing women because she finds it to be a way to help empower them to feel really good about themselves.

  • She believes that as a woman we need to celebrate the body we’re in and treat it with respect.
  • Natalie shares her thoughts about using clothing as a way to express our inner self to the world. She believes what you feel inwardly is affected outwardly by your clothing and vice versa.

                       

Clothing is a very powerful tool that we can use to portray who we are and how we’re feeling. ([08:25])

 

DRESSING WOMEN DURING PREGNANCY:

In this episode, Natalie provides advice on how to dress during times of body change – like pregnancy & postpartum. She emphasizes that during any time of transition, buying clothing & accessories that can serve multiple purposes can help with budget. She encourages listeners to shop intentionally and to purchase items that will bring a little bit of joy.

WHAT IS A MINIMAL WARDROBE?

Natalie talks about having a wardrobe capsule by taking basic pieces and maximizing their use – taking each piece and making sure that you’re using it the maximum amount of ways that you can.

            “The more items we have in our closet, the harder it is to find something to wear.” ([26:59])

Natalie encourages women to let go of items that don’t fit them or to put them in storage until they’re ready to let them go. Keeping clothing that doesn’t fit in dressers and closets not only clutters the space, making it more difficult to make a decision but can also be triggering for anyone dealing with negative body image.

MEET OUR GUEST:

Celeste Goodson is a Pre and Post-Natal Trainer with a Bachelors in Science. in Fitness and Wellness Management and has worked in physical therapy, cardiac rehab, coached high school X-C, and worked in numerous fitness and aquatic settings over the last 15 years. In 2005, Celeste became certified through ACE as a Medical Exercise Specialist, certifying her to personal train Pre/Postnatal women and those with musculoskeletal, neuromuscular and metabolic conditions cleared by physicians. Celeste has worked with elite athletes to professional singers.

Due to personal experience dealing with diastasis and mild prolapse and working with other women, Celeste realized the need for specific prep and core reconditioning after childbirth to help women avoid issues down the line such as diastasis recti, lower back pain, pelvic floor dysfunction, hip instability, posture issues etc… Simply going back to the gym routine is not sufficient enough to re-strengthen the Inner Core System (pelvic floor, transverse abs, diaphragm, and multifidus) which can put undo pressure on a weak inner core system. In 2010 Celeste developed the ReCORE program and also designed the FITsplint (Maternity and Post-Natal) to help women protect and/or splint their core when needed. Celeste believes that while pregnancy is a natural and amazing process, the muscles and ligaments have been stretched, strained and weakened. Women should know that they can avoid and fix many of the common issues associated with pregnancy by correct core strengthening/stretching exercises, proper alignment and splinting.

Celeste and her husband Josh have 3 children. She enjoys reading up on women’s health research, taking women’s health education courses for her CEC’s, running, and playing just about any sport. Celeste is a Boston Marathon runner and understands the desire for women to stay as fit as possible during pregnancy, get their core strength back and return to their exercise of choice injury and symptom-free.

Transition to Motherhood:

  • Celeste and her husband had their first child in 2004 and, at that time, she had been a trainer and had worked in physical therapy. She initially learned about ways to strengthen the core postpartum but she felt it was too general and basic.
  • During her second child, she started doing pre and postnatal classes that taught women how to move and care for their bodies during pregnancy and after.
  • Because of some medical issues she had gone through after her pregnancy, Celeste started to develop a program that teaches about core strengthening which has grown into what ReCore Fitness is today.
  • “I strongly believed that women need to take the time to recondition their core well postpartum.” – Celeste Goodson ([08:50])

Episode Summary:

Celeste shares her thoughts about running, strengthening, and healing:

  • According to Celeste, doing a high impact exercise like running during postpartum can be harmful if done too soon or without the right physical support. If the muscle and tissues have not been able to strengthen and shorten like they should, those tissues will stretch out more.
  • She added that genetics can play a part in healing, how some women recover, and how much the tissue stretches. Also, strengthening can play a big part as well.
  • She explains the muscles in the inner core and how it can be affected during pregnancy.
  • Celeste encourages walking postpartum and to start gradually.
  • She educates women regarding the core and how it is usually weak and deconditioned postpartum. A common example is an abdominal separation – also known as “Diastasis Recti.”
  • For Celeste, it’s never too late to get the strength and coordination back. Sometimes the longer it has been, the more challenging it is to get the tissue to respond but it can always be healed further. Even if you can’t get the tissue to shorten, a lot of times you can get the muscles strong and coordinated enough that it can be functional again.
  • She mentioned that women don’t have to be restricted for the rest of your life as long as they strengthen, coordinate, and gradually work yourself up, follow some basic guidelines.
  • Celeste shares about her functional diastasis.

Defining Diastasis Recti:

 

  • Some people may call it abdominal separation and that just means the tissue has stretched out a little bit. If it’s more than 3 finger widths wide, then it’s classified as Diastasis Recti. It’s the tissue down the middle of your core, in between your abdominals and near your belly button.  It’s not an actual hole but it’s just the tissue stretching to accommodate pregnancy.
  • 100% of women experience abdominal separation during pregnancy but the degree and rate of healing depend on genetics and strengthening.

 

Celeste shares about her Program:

 

  • ReCore is for anyone postpartum whether they have Diastasis Recti or not. It’s about getting the core stable and stronger, and this prepares women for more vigorous exercise. It’s not about the abs separation but it’s about safely reconditioning the core in general.

Notable change in the Medical Community

  • Celeste shares her hopes about having a positive impact and notable awareness in the medical community like the OB, physical therapist and doctors regarding the importance of strengthening the core postpartum.

 

“I really do feel that women should just be automatically sent to a pelvic floor therapist postpartum. They are the ones who can assess and make sure that you don’t have any tearing or pelvic injury.”

Celeste’s Advice about doing a healthy exercise post-partum:

  • “If your core can’t engage and stay controlled during exercise, then you’re not just strong enough to do it.” (27: 35)
  • Classic sit -ups are not recommended postpartum or during pregnancy as they will worsen abdominal separation.
  • If you have Diastasis Recti, she recommends splinting for about 4-6 weeks and then strengthening the inner core.

FITSplint:

  • She believes that using splinting postpartum can greatly help mothers doing pelvic exercises postpartum as it seems to speed the process along.
  • She recommends wearing it for support during pregnancy especially when you’re active to reduce stress on the tissue.
  • Wear support postpartum for about 4-6 weeks.

 

Celeste talks about any symptoms women need to take note of and to consider seeing a pelvic floor therapist

  • Incontinence issues
  • Any heaviness feeling down low.
  • If you sit-up and you see bulging down your abdominal midline, that’s a sign that the tissue is stretched out.

For Celeste, her approach is to be proactive. Keep the core strong during pregnancy and recondition it postpartum to avoid injury and issues in the future.

TRANSITION TO MOTHERHOOD:

Jennifer considers her transition to motherhood as the “most whirlwind time” of her entire life. With all of her excitement regarding her pregnancy and becoming a parent, she recalls that her transition to motherhood was a chaotic time — both positive and negative — because it was very different than what she expected.

In her second pregnancy, Jennifer has learned to have more realistic expectations. This time around, she feels she has more realistic insight into how her body changes, what she has to do in order to protect herself in the sense of having her “self-care time” while her family grows. She also shares that she has learned to make time to connect with her child, connect to her husband, and connect to her own self, too.

She learned from her first child what’s most important in her life based on the values that she has and the values that she wants to bring to her new family. It’s not the stuff that she could give to the baby (perfect nursery, baby items), but it’s the love, care, kindness, and making sure that her whole family is functioning as a family.

The biggest lesson she has learned is that she can’t do it all. She acknowledges the fact that she really needs to ask for help. She learned to pay attention regarding how much self-care she needs and prioritizing a portion of her time to be able to do that.

“There’s self-care for your body and then self-care for your soul.” [14:09]

JENNIFER SHARES SOME NUGGETS OF HER EXPERIENCE WITH BODY IMAGE DURING POSTPARTUM:

Jennifer explains that her postpartum experience was more difficult than her pregnancy period. She shares a story about her experiences with negative body image and how the chaos of postpartum impacted that.

JENNIFER SHARES ABOUT THE SPECIFIC THINGS SHE’S DOING TO NURTURE HERSELF:

She’s learning to embrace the flexibility aspect of having her second child. Although she may not have the idea of how her pregnancy or postpartum is going to be, she’s trying to embrace the concept of being present in the moment and taking things one step at a time.

Jennifer came to know that she needs to ask for help right away. She admits that she cannot be the person that’s capable to do it all. She cannot be the person that’s going to be solely responsible for her children, for her household and her business. She learned that she needs some help in every aspect of it. Whether it be hiring a babysitter, or a mother’s helper, keeping her son at his childcare, asking her husband for help, asking her family for help, and even asking her friends about what they feel and what’s going on with them. According to her, having that kind of support and that kind of relationship would be very important.

I have exciting news! I’m starting a podcast! This has been a long-time coming and I can’t wait to share all of the incredible interviews with you. I’ve been hard at work interviewing some pretty amazing moms and mom self-care pros. When I became a mom, I realized there we so many topics and issues that moms were having to figure out on their own – including myself! I’ve noticed that this regularly prolongs suffering and increases the risk of things like postpartum depression, eating disturbances, poor body image, diastasis recti, pelvic floor issues, etc… not being properly treated. This has got to stop. Enough with the suffering in silence or googling for hours to figure out if what you’re experiencing is “real” and if there is anyone out there who can help. I want this podcast to serve as a platform for getting information out there on these critical topics that deserve way more attention than they’re getting. I also want it to be a place for moms ready to opt-out of diet culture – choose body love and start trusting themselves and their children around food. I’ve spent the last 8 or so years of my career helping women, men, and families opt-out of dieting and heal their relationship with food and their bodies. I want mothers to have the knowledge they need to empower themselves to make these decisions for themselves and their families.

So, in short, The Nurtured Mama Podcast is about changing the conversation about food, feeding, body trust and living well while mommin’ up. Please join me, your host Lindsay Stenovec, MS, RD, CEDRD, as I talk with other moms about their transitions into and throughout motherhood, their experiences with food and their bodies and how we can keep ourselves and our families nurtured. Topics will include body image in motherhood, physical healing post baby, managing stress in parenthood, having a healthy relationship with food, feeding your family with confidence, infant feeding, perinatal mood disorders, eating disorders, intuitive eating, pregnancy nutrition and body changes, postpartum wellness and so much more!
