This week on the Mommy Labor Nurse Podcast I had Sarah, a prenatal and postnatal yoga teacher, come on the show to talk through the ins and outs of yoga during pregnancy! We talked about some of the benefits that prenatal yoga can provide to pregnant moms, if it’s safe in all trimesters, and when’s the best trimester to do prenatal yoga. She talked about some of her favorite poses and some of the more popular poses. And then we talked about postnatal yoga and baby yoga as well! Read more at
This week on the Mommy Labor Nurse podcast I did a solo episode talking all about C-section recovery! I put together this episode in honor of our new C-section birth class, Birth It Up: The C-Section Series that’s launching in July 2021! As the basis for this episode, I was able to pull recovery tips that veteran C-section mamas dropped for me over on Instagram. I figured there is no one who can better speak to this better than the mamas that have gone through it first hand. I start off the episode by talking about what veteran C-section mamas wish they had put in their C-section hospital bag. In fact, I pulled this info from an article I put together last year (read it here!) because you guys blew me away with the suggestions! There is so much good advice. Read more at

This week on the Mommy Labor Nurse Podcast I’m excited to have a first-ever kind of “birth” story for this show, and that is an infant adoption story! Caitlin Karl, a fellow mom who’s actually currently pregnant, came on to share all about their journey to adopting their son AJ. Caitlin shares that she and her husband always knew they wanted to grow their family through adoption and biologically, and was never really quite sure what the order would like that. Read more at
This week on the Mommy Labor Nurse Podcast I hosted a solo episode talking all about spontaneous labor versus inductions, and why spontaneous labor is typically preferred. I also touch on the timeline of medical inductions and what that entails. You’ll learn about a few things you can do during your pregnancy to prep your body for labor, too! And then at the end of the episode I share the quick version of what I personally did with both of my boys to get myself into labor. Read more at
This week on the MLN Podcast, I had Carole Kramer, the founder of Boston Baby Nurse and Nanny come on the show to talk about newborn care specialists and overnight newborn services! Sleep is such a necessity to maintaining our mental health, that sometimes it DOES make sense to bring in some professional support in the early days, especially if you don’t have local support that can help you overnight.

In this episode of the Mommy Labor Nurse podcast I had my friend (and doula!) Stephanie come on the show to share her unique twin birth story! A lot of people don’t realize that twins do NOT have to be born via C-section. Tons of mamas are able to birth their twins vaginally. Your ability to do this depends mostly on the way the presenting baby is positioned. If they are head down, you’ll often get the green light for a vaginal birth. Read more at
This episode of the Mommy Labor Nurse podcast is all about postpartum anxiety and preparing for postpartum during pregnancy. Postpartum anxiety is a common, but less talked about reality for many new moms and one that I personally struggled with after both of my babies were born. Read more at:
his episode of the Mommy Labor Nurse Podcast is all about the realities of black maternal health here in the US, and what we can do to spark change! We’ve done some feed posts over on IG about this topic before to help raise awareness, but I knew I wanted to take more of a deep dive over here. It’s a topic that can be really heavy in some ways, but it’s one that needs a LOT of light! If we’re going to spark any kind of change surrounding racism in healthcare (and specifically in black maternal health) I truly believe that awareness is the first step.

Ep68: The Labor Games!


This episode of the Mommy Labor Nurse Podcast is light-hearted and fun! I always like to feature interesting and unconventional birth stories, interview experts on various pregnancy symptoms and complications, and discuss all things labor and delivery. But every once in a while, I like to do an episode that is just, well, FUN! And that’s where this idea came from. My sister Jenna (who has never been pregnant and is not currently pregnant!) came on for a little segment I’m calling “labor games”. I broke it up into four categories – and they were all a total hit! So, if you’re looking for some easy listening, pregnancy-related fun, you’re in the right place. Read more at
