While we were interviewing her she kept ripping open bags of snacks with her teeth and then passing them off to her kids without missing a beat. THE definition of boss. But first, we discuss a really horrible example of a human male who basically gets everything wrong. Get ready, this is a fun one!! 02:00: Yeah, the uterus does not move. It gets larger to accommodate the growing fetus and pushes the other organs out of their usual places. It also puts some added tension on the surrounding muscles and ligaments but the uterus itself does not wander. Listen to our full episode on hysteria here.06:30: Here is a link to April’s site, The Vagina Blog!  Make sure to subscribe to her newsletter so you don’t miss a thing!08:00: When April talks about being “on call” she is talking about her role as a doula or midwife. You can learn more about what being, or hiring, a doula entails by listening to our awesome interview with Bree!12:00: According to The Mayo Clinic, toxic shock syndrome can result from toxins produced by Staphylococcus aureus (staph) bacteria but is can also be caused by toxins produced by group A streptococcus (strep) bacteria. Vaginal strep. No thank you.12:15: A pessary is a “soft, flexible device that is placed in the vagina to help support the bladder, vagina, uterus and/or rectum… it is a non-surgical way to treat pelvic organ prolapse and sometimes incontinence.”13:20: Uterine prolapse is when pelvic floor muscles and ligaments stretch out and weaken and are no longer able to provide enough support for the uterus. As a result, the uterus slops down into, or protrudes from, the vagina.22:30: What April is referring to here is something known as “la cuarentena” and it refers to the 40 days after a woman gives birth when women family members surround the new mother and help her with her newborn but the real focus is on the well-being, safety and health of the new mother.24:00: A postpartum wrap is something you wrap around your waist to help support your body following childbirth. There are a bunch of different options and while they can be helpful for some women, they are not for everyone. For example, they can be problematic if you have a C-section that might be showing signs of infection or women who had pregnancy/delivery complications such as preeclampsia and amnionitis.34:00: Here is the on-going saga of Nestle’s baby formula scandal.37:30: “All the Things You Should Know About Maturation.”Find The Vagina Blog in all these places:WebsiteInstagramTwitterFacebookContact us!
