Just a note this is a bit of a TMI episode (probably more on my part!) Penny of Min Pin chat about dealing with panic attacks & anxiety during labour & birth, body image issues post birth and how it’s important to keep tabs on your mental health once the baby comes.

Josh talks about being a Kiwi tattoo artist during the COVID-19 pandemic, the naming of their babies, how the hospital they went to for the births uncomfortably pushed for natural births and how he was left in the birthing suite for 3 hours alone with his son Bobby, along with the mess he helped made.

Babe 8teen is Julie of Aacute, who gave birth to her daughter Lyra at the start of the pandemic when things were super unorganized and confusing. We chat about how her partner Tom wasn’t able to be with Julie during Lyra’s birth, nor was he able to depend the first night with them at the hospital; but also how lovely it was when they finally get to spend the first night together as a family of 3. A little note, with me being super scared of needles, Julie got me a bit sweaty when she recalls the process of getting an epidural; and even sweatier with how the midwife explained c-section to her.

In this episode we chat to the lovely couple James, drummer of Catholic Guilt and his beautiful partner Jess about being pregnant during the COVID-19 lockdown and how their dream birth was going so well according to the birth plan, but everything went a bit balls up. *positive outcome*

Also apologies for the audio in this episode! My audio is overwhelming compared to Jess & James'.

Babe Sixteen is Sarah of The Witch Apprentice. We chat about toilet training (again!), toddler tantrums and how we deal (or don’t) with them. How different her two daughters are, right down to labour pains. How we’d say we wouldn’t change our babies for the world but at the same time, okay maybe a little bit. Lastly, we chat the selling of Sarah’s old business to become a full time witch.

Babe Fourteen is Patience Hodgson of the Aussie band The Grates. Patience's episode is split into two parts as we have over 2 hours of A+ content.
In part one, we chat about her and her family’s mindful self isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic, her and her husband John’s lives post babies; how, for Patience, breastfeeding was a wonderful antidote to anxiety and the birth of her first daughter Soda.

Babe Thirteen is Erin Lightfoot of Erin Lightfoot Ceramics Design Studio. We had a chat about how our babies are destroying the ability for us to drink, Erin trying to explain the actual pains of labour and what it feels like, the surprise sensation of pushing baby out of ya bum bum (quote a midwife “it’ll feel like you will poo a fridge.” and how your body transforms itself to help you with the birth of your baby.

In part two of Babe Twelve, Rachel and I spoke about working mum life, doing something small for yourself every day and how you become more ruthless with your work now that you've got a baby. Oh, and to quote a lady from Real Housewives of Melbourne, "You can have everything in life; just not at the same time."
