Episode 12 – Babies, Post Natal Depression & What Comes Next… with Terri Psiakis

There’s nothing funny about Post Natal Depression and for comedian Terri Psiakis this reality became an internal nightmare – on the outside everything was peachy, but as you’ll learn in this podcast today, inside her world was quickly crashing down.  Like many new mothers may experience, Post Natal Depression (PND) pulls women apart and for Terri, she explains how her post natal depression was “ball-tearing” (we giggle), certainly not the introduction to motherhood she had planned or hoped for; doubled with a diagnosis of Post Natal Traumatic Stress (PNTS).  Ouch.

But we do not need to experience such pain alone, which is why we’ve opened the mic to Terri today.  Not only is Terri a comedian, she is a writer, a performer, a broadcaster a mum and her newest ‘baby,’ Hello Baby where she provides her expertise as infant massage instructor and she’s got some amazing insights as to the why and how of PND & PNTS…. and how massage helped her recover.  You’re going to need to press play below OR listen via iTunes, because this is one episode for every woman, expecting or not!

Episode 11 – Getting Your Period Back When It’s Been AWOL – With Claire Baker

Periods.  There, we said it.  Cecelia’s most unfavorite topic – we’re going there in this episode.  She admits, she doesn’t really like talking about it (at all which makes for a very interesting podcast!).  As personal as the topic is, we either have one or we are waiting for one (or it’s gone awol) and for a lot of women, periods aren’t something you’ve necessarily been able to take for granted.

Since IT’S OUR BIRTHDAY (I can hear you singing in your best voice.. “Happy Birthday To You!”) we’ve dedicated this month to our most talked about topic, periods, PCOS and hormones!  Something for everybody.

Episode 10 – Turning Back Your Fertility Clock with Aimee Raupp

Been told your biological clock is ticking?  Nobody knows this more than Aimee Raupp, natural fertility expert and woman after my own heart as a Doctor of Chinese Medicine and Author.  I adore Aimee’s passion for natural health and fertility and I could possibly chat with her all day long.  Not only is Aimee a world leader in combining Natural Fertility, assisted conception and Eastern treatments, she has helped thousands of couples achieve their dreams of becoming parents – we are in good company ladies!

Aimee’s love for fertility was further sparked when she became a mother after her 40th Birthday (hoorah!)  proving that age may not be as much of a barrier as we are lead to believe.  What’s more, Aimee is gearing up to ensure her body is baby ready to conceive again, something she know she’s good at!  After all, if we can’t practice what we preach, we’re in a bit of a pickle.

The Period Party – Podcast #74

Is it just me, or are these podcasts getting better and better?  I’m finding that as part of the Wellness Collective Tour, we have far more listeners than we knew about (thanks iTunes for not really allowing us to really know how many people love us – ALL the more reason for you to rate us- pretty please).  Anyway, I love that!  In that vein I have to say, THIS episode goes down as an all time classic!  Why – we talked about orgasms and stuff.  You’ll also hear about Nicole and my new venture – I actually create it on the podcast (can you guess?).

BUT most importantly, we interview Kit Maloney from O’Actually.  We talk about all things climax – it’s a cracker episode and you’re going to need to listen now!

Episode 9 – Designing Your Work Life

You are the designer of your work life.  Have you ever thought about it this way?  You spend a lot of time at work and you’ve possibly seen quotes that suggest things like “if you love what you do, you’ll never have to work a day in your life” but not too sure this really exists?  And if it does, how do you get there?

In this latest episode of The Wellness Collective Podcast, we chat with Kelly Magowan from Diversitas.  Kelly is a lifestyle strategist and we dig into career happiness – Kelly cleverly states, “if you’re spending a lot of your life unhappy in your job it can manifest as physical symptoms also.”  We ask Kelly where to start if you’re ready to change even if you’re not sure what the next career is.  All this and so much more right here!
