In this episode we’re having a bit of fun and taking a look at a few colorful birth scenes from movies and tv. This is a follow up to episode 97 where we talk about a home birth that was depicted in the hit tv show Jane The Virgin. That conversation inspired us to explore other depictions of birth….and the result is this silly episode. We apologize in advance for some of the ridiculousness that ensues...but to shield you from it would be denying who we really are. And since we’re about open and honest conversation -- sometimes that means you hear our goofy and less than sophisticated sides. Just being transparent here, folks!
But we have a lot of fun in this one, and you’ll hear right from the start. We share some of our first memories of watching a fictional portrayal of birth and how that experience imprinted part of our young ideas of birth and what it was. Then we shift into some more positive representations. We received some feedback from listeners on some of their favorite birth scenes. And then we reveal what Hollywood birth scenes we enjoy. With a surprise twist!
We’ve also got a lot of fun things going on with the show right now. We will be broadcasting via Instagram live for our next episode - number 100! So tune in to Instagram live on Tuesday, November 14 at 9:30 am eastern to watch us record the episode! If you can’t make it at that time, the video will be available on Instagram for 24 hours, and of course we’ll be publishing the episode in iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play and our website. But in the live you’ll see some behind the scenes stuff of our recording process, and may even get a shout out on the show!
Also, Sarah is launching her own podcast! The currently untitled show will launch in December and will focus on balance and motherhood - how to tend to self-love and self-care in the midst of it all. So stay tuned for that and please feel free to reach out to Sarah with topic ideas or questions!
