TRIGGER WARNING: This episode shares a very real and raw miscarriage experience.In this episode, Laura sits down with Kristin Kaschak, a dear friend and the brilliant mind behind a Big Brash Life. Kristin shows up in this space to share the very real, raw, hard experience of miscarriage. Unfortunately, women are so often set up to go through the experience of pregnancy loss alone. Not only that, but we're made to believe the actual physical experience will be no more uncomfortable than a heavy period. Kristin is here to call bulls*t, to share her experience, to process in her own way, and to let every woman who's gone through this incredibly hard journey to know she is not alone.About our guest:Kristin is a Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, CrossFit Level 2 Trainer, Holistic Lifestyle Coach, Certified Cicerone, Certified BirthFIT Coach, Traveler, Eater, Drinker, and Taker of No Bullshit. A Big Brash Life is not a health blog, or a nutrition site. It’s not just travel or a fitness guide. It’s a lifestyle blog. The most millennial of all blogs. At the end of the day here's what Kristin hopes you'll take away from her work: Health is not a struggle. Your body is not the enemy. Living a life that prioritizes health, and living one that you enjoy, and these two things are NOT mutually exclusive.Follow along with all Kristin shares on Instagram at @thegirlwiththebutterCheck out her new website: bigbrashlife.comGet 15% off Super Fat Pouches with code: modernmamasGet 15% off Beekeeper's Naturals products with code: modernmamasGet 15% off Four Sigmatic products with code: modernmamas Get 20% off COMRAD Compression Socks with code: modern mamasConnect with us:Modern Mamas – @modernmamaspodcastLaura – @laura.radicalrootsJess – @jess.holdthespaceLaura’s website – http://myradicalroots.com/Jess’ website (coming soon) – https://www.jessgaertner.com--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/the-modern-mamas-podcast/support

MMP Ep. 119: Bostyn's story

2019-09-1800:51:03

“WARNING: this episode is about the heartbreaking loss of still birth. While we know this is an incredibly important conversation that needs to happen, we also want to be sure to let you know before reading the show notes or tuning in, in case this might be a triggering topic. We are so grateful for this open, loving community and for Sydelle for sharing Bostyn’s story.” In this episode, Laura sits down with Sydelle Tungsvik for an incredibly important, moving, inspiring, but also inexplicably hard episode. Sydelle shares the story of her daughter Bostyn's birth. Bostyn was born still at 38 weeks, and it is an honor to share her story, the immeasurable impact she's had on her parents' lives, and the many ways she lives on in light through her parents and the work Sydelle is doing with The Baby Steps Foundation to speak openly about Bostyn and connect with other mamas who've experienced the heartache of loss. This is an episode we all need to hear. 1 in 160 mothers experience a birth of a still baby, and this conversation and the support for these mamas isn't what it needs to be. Thank you for listening, for supporting, for loving like this community does best. We are so grateful to Sydelle for sharing Bostyn's story and for all of you. Sydelle is a pediatric nurse and wife to Jt who is a police officer in our home city. They were both born and raised in the PNW. Their world has been flipped upside down after their daughter Bostyn died at 38 weeks from a true knot in her cord in February. Since then she has been trying to figure out how to make sense in life all while honoring her daughter. Links and Such: Follow @sydelle_t and @raysandrainbows on Instagram. Learn more about the Baby Steps Foundation: babystepsfoundation.org Grab your own Bostyns Beads: bostynsbeads.com Get 15% off Beekeeper's Naturals products with code: modernmamasGet 15% off Four Sigmatic products with code: modernmamas Connect with us:Modern Mamas – @modernmamaspodcastLaura – @laura.radicalrootsJess – @jess.holdthespaceLaura’s website – http://myradicalroots.com/Jess’ website – https://www.jessgaertner.com/--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/the-modern-mamas-podcast/support
