Drawing upon extensive research and interviews with new mothers, this book details the process of a mother’s growth and change in the nine months after giving birth
You need both science and woo! Anything less is wishful thinking.

This episode features Antonia Anderson, a doula based in the Canberra, ACT, Australia. You can find out more about Antonia at http://peacefulpostnatal.com.au/

Beyond the immediate sleep and breastfeeding challenges of the early weeks and months of mothering, one the most common two challenges mothers tell me they face in the long run are lack of support with childcare.
Have you ever felt like a holiday with small children is… not exactly a holiday? Sure the kids might have fun but you are parenting without your support network or the equipment and toys you usually rely on. Negotiating jet lag and long distance travel only increase to the not-exactly-a-holiday vibe. Add sleep deprivation, homesickness and the inevitability of someone getting ill and sometimes it feels like you should have just stayed home.
I show women how to feel supported and confident on the journey to motherhood.
Whilst many pregnant mothers are quite detailed and meticulous when it comes to planning their birth, many don’t realise that it’s just the beginning. It’s a bit like planning for a wedding and forgetting that you’ll actually be married at the end of it.
None of them really addressed how to support Newborn Mothers through this major life transition, this rite of passage.
Simple pumpkin soup is such a classic Australian comfort food. In this recipe, garlic, ginger and asafetida help to energetically warm the coconut milk making it more valuable for new mums.

A Mother’s Journal to Her Newborn by Jennifer Rose Sadlovsky makes the perfect baby shower gift in paperback! It will melt the hearts of all mothers!
I read this about thirty years ago and it was the best book I read. It was recommended when my baby was about 5 months old, if only I read it before she was born. Excellent book and highly recommended.
But none of them really got much deeper than the practical information about baby care and breastfeeding.
My husband Dylan and I have three beautiful children, Harriet, Albert and Clancy, and we love gardening, cooking and playing with our neighbours on the street. I live in Fremantle, Western Australia. I recently joined the circus and I am learning to play piano with my daughter.

Last week I wrote about where to go on holidays with babies and toddlers (hyperlink) and this week I want to share a bunch of ways to make travelling and holidays with babies and toddlers run more smoothly.
Do you have concerns about having a baby in the digital age? Dr Kristy has a no-nonsense and evidence based approach that will help alleviate your technoguilt and give you some simple tips to minimise risks.
When I first started my business I thought bartering would be a great way to get my business off the ground without having loads of cash available up front. But in reality it was a disaster, I ended up wasting time with untalented logo designers and websites that I didn’t love and it made me feel very unprofessional.
It’s happened again. I’m paying for ads to try and reach more women with my message about caring for Newborn Mothers.
People often say it takes a village to raise a child, but what does that actually mean? In this episode we take a look at the way traditional human societies raise children, and what our biology and birth say about the history of human parenting. Is having a baby an individual choice or a social responsibility?
Learn a new paradigm and work on a deeper, more transformational level.
I work with doulas, midwives, yoga teachers and more to create abundant careers in postpartum care based on brain science and ancient traditions.
I work with pregnant women and Newborn Mothers who want to avoid feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. My blueprint will show you how to switch on your intuition, tune into your baby and be the mum you want to be.
Mothers usually only admit to their loneliness in private, safe spaces. It’s as though they feel ashamed or embarrassed, like feeling lonely is somehow a failure in our independent culture.
Even saying childcare out loud feels a bit like saying a dirty word! In fact our attitudes towards working mothers and gender roles are becoming MORE conservative!
And I get the inevitable torrent of questions along the lines of “What about Newborn Fathers?”
and am really fascinated by traditional medicine and culture, topics that some people might consider a bit ‘woo.’ So I started searching here.
My journey to postpartum work began before I was even a mother myself. Postpartum work is truly my vocation and I felt this calling from a young age.

Many mothers I talk to feel lonely and isolated. Statistically speaking, 1 in 5 people report they are lonely and that’s a lot, but I’m sure that number would be much higher for new mothers.

This is my simplified (and less authentic) version of a traditional Nepali first food for mothers after birth, which I originally learned from Sarita Shrestha, who is a classically trained Ayurvedic obstetrician and gynecologist. The pudding aids digestion, has instantly accessible energy and builds blood. Serve all day, as often as you enjoy it, for the first few days after the birth. This is a wonderful food for friends and family to bring you in hospital in a thermos.

Here are a few things to consider in your postpartum plan. Here’s what I wish every pregnant woman knew about breastfeeding.
I think there is an underestimated kind of breastfeeding support that everyone can offer, even if you are not a professional or a breastfeeding expert, and even if you didn’t breastfeed yourself.
Today on the podcast I’m chatting to my husband about the fact that as a pregnant woman I got a barrage of advice, and as a man he got NONE! So I asked him the question we often discuss as women, what has he learned about fatherhood and what does he wish he’d known before becoming a father himself? He shares his top three tips for smoothing the transition from couple to family.
Research has found a new baby typically results in 400-750 hours of lost sleep for parents in the first year – sleep deprivation and motherhood go hand in hand.
One of the things you could do with knowing a little bit about in advance is breastfeeding. If you plan to breastfeed, then it’s a good idea to actually PLAN to breastfeed.
Whilst some mothers face complex breastfeeding challenges like tongue tie and insufficient glandular tissue, in my experience the most common barriers to breastfeeding are much more simple.
I’m not going to offer you sleep solutions today. What I will do today is try to help you cope!

So whether you are a grandmother, friend, partner or professional supporting a Newborn Mother with normal breastfeeding, here are a few of my slightly left-field suggestions!
But no one in my town was a postnatal doula when I first started out, there wasn’t even training available locally, so I had to find my own path, which turned out to be a great blessing.
Over the next few years I completed five different doula trainings.
A French soup with green beans inspired this soup, but zucchini is much kinder to Newborn Mothers’ tummies. You can also try other vegetable and nut/seed variations, like substituting pumpkin for zucchini and ground pumpkin seeds for almond meal.
