Preserving Your Mental Health Around the Holidays - Strategies + Salvation to Get You Through
Even though we had a few technical difficulties, this show is too fantastic not to share with you! Kerri sounds a little far away, but I swear she’s right next to me (with her hand on my leg). Anyway, it’s the holiday season brideys + beyonders, so obviously, we invited Dr. Jocelyn Charnas back on to Bitchless Bride + Beyond to talk about mental health and strategies to keep your head held high during this potentially difficult time. ’Tis the season of joy, good cheer and happiness, right? Clearly, these words seem to set the exception for us; essentially dictating how we’re supposed feel, but what happens if your feelings don’t match up with the joy, the good cheer and happiness? Listen to Dr. Charnas’ splendid advice as we navigate these topics and dive into the abyss, together. Dr. Charnas is a Ph.D., and is a licensed clinical psychologist practicing on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. She treats adults with anxiety, depression, phase-of-life and adjustment issues, and specializes in interpersonal and relationship issues.

Erica is an entirely relatable wife, mom and career juggler who is still trying to figure out which one of her hats fits the best.

And, we’re pretty sure you’ll be nodding your heads as we explain why motherhood is a delicate balance of constantly reinventing yourself because what always worked in the past does not and cannot work in the present, especially if you’re career isn’t cooperating.

Interview with Drew Edwards, Volunteer Executive Director of Brides Against Breast Cancer + Discussing How to Plan a Wedding When a Close Family Member is Seriously Ill
Season 3, Episode 5: Today is the last day of Breast Cancer Awareness month, so I thought we’d chat with Drew Edwards, Executive Director of Brides Against Breast Cancer (BABC). BABC supports Early Detection Education Programs, Research, and Legislative efforts by selling recycled, high end wedding dresses to brides-to-be looking for an upscale wedding dress, but at a fraction of the cost. Two key takeaways? If you’re recently married, PLEASE donate your wedding dress right after your wedding! Go Marie Kondo, and get rid of it! Don’t wait, do good now or else it might be too late! BABC only accepts wedding dresses within four years of wear. Your dress is out of style if you wait ten years to donate! Second, if you’re looking to buy a wedding dress, please buy a recycled dress from BABC! It doesn’t need to be brand new to be new to you. Buying your dress from BABC could save a life!And, in the later part of the podcast, the topic is a bit difficult, but necessary. Nathan and I discuss how to plan a wedding when a close family member is seriously ill. Yes, this feels uncomfortable. Yes, this sucks and it’s hard. However, we hope that by listening, we can help you deal with the enormity of the situation with grace, while at the same time, considering your needs/desires around your wedding.

Season 3 Episode 4: Stories About In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) + Life After the Plunge with Kim MilesToday we are talking with the super FABULOUS, super sought-after, Kim Miles! Through her company, Miles in Heels Productions, Kim is an incredibly popular emcee, panel moderator, and creative collaborator. But... That’s not what our conversation is about.l mentioned last week that we were going to continue our conversation around in vitro fertilization (IVF), and the stories that come along with the journey. I brought Kim into the studio to share her IVF quest with the Bitchless Bride + Beyond audience as a point of reference, reality, grief, empowerment and ever after. I’m hoping that the take away from today’s pod will be one that inspires you to let go of what you think you need or want and thrive with whatever outcome you are given.Some hot topics we cover: Kim’s quest to be a champion for women whether it’s child-free by choice or child-free not by choice. How to have + navigate a conversation with child-free women without sounding like an asshole! Why you should NEVER lead with, “How old are your children?”!!! The IVF comedy tour??

What is In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) + How Can I Use it to Get Knocked Up or Preserve My Fertility for Later?
Season 3 Episode 3: All of your questions will be answered today on Bitchless Bride + Beyond! Dr. David Ryley, a reproductive endocrinologist at Boston IVF specializing in all aspects of fertility care is in the studio. I brought Dr. Ryley in to discuss not only fertility in general, but egg retrieval/freezing (and what that means exactly), getting pregnant as part of the LGBTQ community, and fertility as it relates to transgender patients and cancer patients. My goal is to help educate our audience and the new demographic on all of these fronts. Because it’s more than just about fertility, it’s about PRESERVING fertility due to physical, professional, medical and emotional circumstances. We are now given the opportunity to defer pregnancy/childbearing + family building for a time when it’s right for us, versus the evolutionary right time.Some hot topics we cover: Not meeting the right significant other, ticking biological clock, freezing eggs for when we’re damn well ready to have babies (if ever), single mother by choice, society downplaying miscarriages, why abortion would be a “rite of passage” if men got pregnant, updated porn + 70s bush, etc….Dr. Ryley: “I live in the world of unbelievably intended pregnancies. Family is defined as an environment that provides a source of love that any child will thrive.”Deb: “I’m very aware of the fact that I am bleeding and there is a wand up my pussy...” See the pic of Dr. Ryley’s face when I blurted out this line…

She says that, “none of her weddings have ended up on Youtube!”, but Nicole’s stories and incredible knowledge about planning a catholic wedding are fantastic, and should be shared with the world!
