Sex after Babies with Jenna Dalton
In this episode I chat with my friend and "Certified Postpartum Athleticism Coach", Jenna Dalton! This conversation was so.much.fun to have especially since I had NO CLUE how open Jenna was about talking about sex, orgasms and all that jazz. We talked about pelvic floor issues, the awkwardness (and importance) of seeing a pelvic floor physiotherapist, the definition of "good" sex, the challenges of motherhood, how to describe what an orgasm really feels like and so much more. Whether you've just given birth or it's been over 10 years (like myself), this is a really informative and hilarious conversation that I don't think you want to miss.

The Sweetest Love Through the Toughest Time
In this episode, I interview one of my favourite people in the whole world. I met Norene while we were both training to be Marriage Coaches (she's also been a Marriage Therapist for years and years) and I instantly felt drawn to her. When I started this podcast, I knew that she would be a guest and I was honoured when she said "yes" to sharing her (and her husband's) journey of losing their daughter 5 years ago. We talk about just about everything in this episode and while we are dealing with a heavy topic- this conversation is anything but. So settle in and get ready to feel all the feelings :) Find more Norene goodness here: https://rocksolidrelationshiphelp.com

In this conversation, we talk about the very real challenges that they have faced together as a couple and how they are continuing to navigate this new territory together with love, compassion and a true sense of teamwork.

Religion, Shame and Masturbation
In this episode, I chat with Rachel- an AMAZINGLY articulate married woman who agreed to get very real about her thoughts around religion, shame and masturbation.
