12. Birth to Bicycling with Amanda Wanner, Cygnet Postpartum Doula
Meeting Amanda Wanner of Cygnet Postpartum Doula last Spring at the Peninsula Birth and Baby Expo was such a treat. Through my interactions with her as one of the expo coordinators, her kindness, patience and ability to connect on a meaningful and real level were all things that drew me to want to know her more. Outside fo that role, she is also a Postpartum Doula and Infant Care Specialist. She joined me behind the mic recently to share her own experience in pregnancy, birth and postpartum. When she arrived on her magnificent bicycle, with homemade Kombucha in tow, I lit up from the inside out. This is the longest podcast I've recorded to date, but in this time, we discuss the varying roles in Postpartum Care and how incredibly valuable it is, attachment and communication in parenting, and also the experience she's had with family bicycling. So much greatness here. Thank you Amanda, for the support you provide to families and for your efforts to promote wellness in our community with family bicycling! Amanda can be found on Facebook, followed on Instagram and contacted HERE on her website.

11. Exploring Preferences in Birth
This episode wraps up the 3 part mini series as we explore preferences in birth. Often referred to as a birth plan, having preferences written out in a clear and easy to read format can help both you and your birth team to know the focus of your goals and have a place to revisit and reflect as labor progresses, birth unfolds and postpartum and newborn care continue. As mentioned, I am a HUGE fan of Earth Mama Organics. I am so honored to be a birth professional with them and keep their products on hand for purchase and also include them as part of my Childbirth Education, Postpartum and Breastfeeding Support Services. This beautiful business in based in the PNW and they have a great tool (FREE!) on their website to aide in writing birth plans. Here is the link to that: http://freebirthplan.com/earth-mama-free-birth-plan/ We cover birth preferences in detail in Nesting, the Childbirth Education Course that I offer both in person, and coming SOON online. A launch date has been set and will be announced later this month with an opportunity for pre-sale at a discounted rate. I am incredibly excited to roll this out! Sign up for the exclusive email list here to be the first to read and hear all about it. As always show notes can be found at thechosennest.com/episode11 and that is also where you will find the step 1 PDF template I created just for this podcast. Want more details on how to write and refine your birth preferences? There will be an entire module on that in the online offering mentioned above. As always, I can be reached at email@example.com if you have any questions!

10. Exploring Education in Birth
Episode 10! Wow...double digits already! In this episode, we hit the second topic in our three part mini series as we explore Childbirth Education. By the end of this brief but thorough 35 minute recording, I touch on what birth preparation courses cover (and what I cover in my offerings, more specifically), why childbirth education is important, who can benefit from this information, when to begin looking into class offerings (hint: it's never too soon!), where you can receive this educational experience and lastly how to find a class near you. And of course, I mention the fact that I am bringing my childbirth education offerings online. Whoot whoot! This has been a long time coming and will offer much more accessibility for families near and far. I've been working day and night and almost have final input from beta testing and then a launch date will be set! For those local to Kitsap County, there will be a hybrid add on option as well so that while most is online, there's a chance to meet up in person too. Details release super soon and so sign up for the exclusive email list here to know when it rolls out. The final touches are being added right now.
