We have taken many flights throughout the years, due to our traveling lifestyle, but I have never traveled with a child before until now. In this episode, I share the Good, Bad, and Ugly of our trip as well as some personal recommendations on making this trip as comfortable as possible. There will always be the occasional stare, look, and snicker but at the end of the day it is all about getting to your destination as stress-free as possible.During this trip, I found that specific airlines and their policies can make or break your experience. So be sure to research what they will and will not do without a specific request.It has been a while since we last caught up, but I am excited to check in! It's Brie Pod Wednesday!!
Traveling is essential for Jeremy's job, and as many know, we have moved from OR to AZ. Even though we have moved, I still have to come back every other month for the orthodontist because I'm still on the road to jaw surgery...Yesterday, I took my very first solo trip without my son.Between delayed flights and frantically searching for ice (because I couldn't watch any more breastmilk go down the drain) to the emotional roller coaster ride of being away from my son for 24 hours. I have had some time to share my experience.I made mistakes and learned a lot along the way.In this episode, I'm sharing the mistakes I made, and tips for traveling solo as a breastfeeding mama.

Unfiltered is back!!In this episode,I talk all about Breastfeeding and the challenges that have come with it.

I also share how I am keeping in touch with where I am mentally, physically, and emotionally throughout this journey, as a first-time mom. Breastfeeding is far from easy... With that, this further backs up why I will continue to never shame someone for their choices in how they feed their baby/babies.
We broke up with our baby's pediatrician after our very first appointment and here's why....In this episode, I share how one appointment led to a harmful statement, many tears, and a huge feeling of failure in the vulnerable place we were already in, as new parents.

Have you ever felt like you knew something was wrong with your health, but everyone else including the "professionals" told you otherwise? Two years ago today I had Endometriosis Laparoscopic Surgery and it changed my life. In this episode, I celebrate the official day I learned of my diagnosis of Endometriosis after 10+ years of searching for answers. I talk about the medical trauma I faced as well as the imposter syndrome that crept in.On this journey for answers and healing, I did not get everything resolved but I learned along the way that it is still important to celebrate every win, even if it seems small. I am not sure what will come next for my endo story, but I do know that many women in the endo community have had 5-9+ surgeries in their lifetime. The sad part about the lack of research is that at this point endo doesn't have a cure.My mission is to help by sharing my story + symptoms to help spread awareness. A 10-year wait for any diagnosis is unacceptable!"Your illness does not define you. Your strength and courage does"#endothepain

This global campaign aims to raise awareness about breastfeeding and its advantages.In this episode, I share both awareness of breastfeeding and ways to cope if you're having trouble or are unable to breastfeed. The most important key is that your beautiful baby is fed! I share tools and resources on both sides of the spectrum as well as my own approach that I plan to take when it comes to feeding. Deciding how you will feed your baby can be a hard decision, as well as many factors can come up. You will really only know the right choice for your family when your baby comes.

I share the struggles that I have faced by doing both at the same time, as well as the lessons I have learned too. Nutrition has always been a struggle for me and both life events have not made it easy in any way, but I do share how I have gotten through and always remind myself -- This is Only Temporary!
In this Episode,I talk about the third trimester and what I am doing for my body. I share how pregnancy has challenged me in many ways - One of them is addressing my stubbornness and keeping it in check.

We are so grateful to be close to meeting our beautiful baby boy.As always, Thank you for your support and love along this journey!
TRIGGER WARNING: AbortionIn this episode, I cover the controversial Supreme Court decision with the overturn of Roe V. Wade and I share aspects of how this impacts other court cases outside of Abortion. Roe did far more than establish the right to abortion; it solidified and expanded the constitutional โ€œright to privacy," which has also been described as the right to autonomy orto be let alone. This right to privacy is part of the right to liberty protected by the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments, which state that no person shall be deprived of โ€œlife, liberty orproperty, without due process of law. The Constitutionโ€™s protection of liberty and privacy underlies the Supreme Courtโ€™s recognition of fundamental rights related to contraception and procreation, marriage, family relations, child-rearing, and intimacy. Although The Courtโ€™s recognition of the right to privacy predates Roe, Roe is an important affirmation of and foundation for a broad array of privacy rights. While not exclusively dependent on Roe, Roe influenced privacy principles in each of theseareasโ€”principles that could be undermined if the Supreme court overturns Roe - Which unfortunately is what now has happened.
