The Pregnancy Podcast – Cord Blood Banking

Why this podcast?
Well, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The host, Vanessa Merten, brings you well-researched, evidence-based information on a huge range of subjects in easy to digest episodes of thirty minutes or less.

It’s no wonder this podcast features here so regularly!

Why this episode?
As a doula, I belong to a few online pregnancy groups and I see questions about cord blood banking popping up fairly regularly.

Dallas Birth Guide – Empowered Epidurals and TENS Units for Labor

Why this podcast?
Well, I’m 99.9% sure that this podcast has never been featured on this blog. It has, however, been lurking in my podcast library for quite some time so I decided to give it some air!

The Dallas Birth Guide is, as the name suggests, aimed at families in Dallas, Texas but as it is an online resource everyone can benefit from its content. The Dallas Birth Guide’s goal is to –

Fear Free Childbirth – 7 Signs of a Woman with Tokophobia

Why this podcast?
This is one I’ve featured a few times but the host, Alexia Leachman, had taken a bit of a break from podcasting. I was happy to see The Fear Free Childbirth Podcast back in action and thought this episode looked pretty interesting.

The podcast itself is just one of the many fantastic resources on the Fear Free Childbirth website.

Alexia experienced the extreme fear of pregnancy and childbirth that is Tokophobia and has made it her mission to work toward supporting other expecting parents and to take the fear out of birth.
