IUD or I-U-Don’t? Steph’s big decision

It’s a mixed bag this week! Steph has a raspy voice (the sick kind…not the sexy kind) and Laura has a story about a dryer gone wrong and she wants to know what you would do if you were in the same situation. Then Steph shares the decision she recently made to get her IUD removed. And we call relationship coach (and friend of the podcast) Megan Luscombe to ask for her advice on the question: “how do I start a conversation with my partner that I don’t want to have?”  SPECIAL SHARES Steph: The Idea Of You on Amazon Prime https://www.primevideo.com/dp/0NRT15S2XG06SG5HBV5NQAW3E3?  Steph: 'Mad About You' podcast with Jadé Tunchy and Lachie Brycki https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/mad-about-you/id1744842826 Laura: Promising Young Woman on Stan (trigger warning: the film portrays sexual assault) https://www.stan.com.au/watch/promising-young-woman-2020?  FOLLOW US KICPOD @kicpod on Instagram Join our closed KICPOD Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/630561419185145/ Steph Claire Smith @stephclairesmith on Instagram & @steph_claire_smith on TikTok Laura Henshaw @laura.henshaw on Instagram & @laura.henshaw on Tiktok Kic @kic.app on Instagram & @kic on TikTok and kicapp.com or download the app from the App Store and Google Play Store

Career + children. Can I have both? - with Laura Henshaw

The most common fear we heard from you while planning this series, was what children would do to your career. Progression, relevancy, loss of superannuation, loss of identity, and comments like "why would you have kids if you're going to go back to work," all contribute to women making the decision to have children. And with increased rates of homelessness among women in Australia, and women retiring with 28% less superannuation than men, these fears are not baseless. But having children doesn’t have to end or derail your career. Children could even help your career. In this episode Laura speaks with two women on different sides of the career & motherhood journey. Founder & coach Janey Martino had three children under 3 in her early 30’s while her career was on a high. She continued working and now that her children are teenagers, she is able to role model to them what working parenthood looks like. Britt Austin loves her career in sports marketing so she created a plan that would help her return to work four months after giving birth to her first baby in April.  Then you share your thoughts on the topic ❤️  FIND OUT MORE Check out Janey’s coaching business ‘The Kintsugi Way’ https://kintsugiway.co/ Read KPMG’s report ‘The Gender Superannuation Gap’ from 2021 which states “The median superannuation balance for men aged 60‑64 years is $204,107 whereas for women in the same age group it is $146,900, a gap of 28 per cent.” https://assets.kpmg.com/content/dam/kpmg/au/pdf/2021/addressing-gender-superannuation-gap.pdf Find out more about the increase in homelessness for women in the ABS Estimating Homelessness Census from 2021 which found that of those experiencing homelessness in Australia in 2021, 44.1% were female, an increase of 10.1% from 2016, compared to a 1.6% increase for men in the same period https://www.abs.gov.au/statistics/people/housing/estimating-homelessness-census/latest-release FOLLOW US Laura Henshaw @laura.henshaw on Instagram & @laura.henshaw on Tiktok KICPOD @kicpod on Instagram Join our closed KICPOD Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/630561419185145/ Join Kic @kic.app on Instagram & @kic on TikTok and kicapp.com or download the app from the App Store and Google Play Store

Do I need to be 100% sure I want kids? - with Laura Henshaw

If you're talking to people about the decision to have children it’s likely you’ve heard a version of this - “parenting is really hard so if you’re not 100% sure that you want children…don’t do it”. This episode is here to challenge that idea. The reasons people say not to have children are very convincing - you’ll never sleep again, your relationship will never be the same, you’ll never have sex again, you’ll lose your weekends. Basically your life as you know it will be over. But it's also the best decision some people ever make. In this episode Laura speaks with three women who didn’t feel an innate calling to be mothers, but now that they have children, they wouldn’t have it any other way. Rebecca was adamant she didn’t want children until she hit her 30’s and a death in the family made her reconsider. Alyssa’s pregnancy took her and her partner by surprise. And Melanie faced more hurdles than most conceiving her two children.  Then you share your thoughts on the topic ❤️ FOLLOW US Laura Henshaw @laura.henshaw on Instagram & @laura.henshaw on Tiktok KICPOD @kicpod on Instagram Join our closed KICPOD Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/630561419185145/ Join Kic @kic.app on Instagram & @kic on TikTok and kicapp.com or download the app from the App Store and Google Play Store

Can I be childfree and still feel fulfilled? - with Laura Henshaw

Whether it’s biological, circumstantial, financial, environmental, a result of trauma, or simply because you don’t want to, the reasons why people decide to be childfree are as diverse as the reasons why people decide to be parents. For many people, the decision to be childfree is met with comments like “you’ll change your mind,” or “you won’t know real love until you have a child,” or “what if you regret it?”. And with so few childfree role models showing us what a childfree life could look like, these responses can be hard to deny. In this episode, Laura speaks with three childfree women. Danni Duncan is a New Zealand based childfree content creator who has dedicated her life to showing people that a childfree life is not only possible, but can be totally fulfilling and empowering. Amelia is a member of our KICPOD community who made the decision not to have children based on her own childhood. And finally, Karen made the decision to be childfree despite having the desire to be a parent. Now she’s in her 50’s she is so happy with the decision she made.

Do I want children or does society want me to have children? with Laura Henshaw

You meet someone, you get married, you have children. Right? That’s been the status quo for so long that it can be hard to imagine an alternative. For so many people who don’t feel called to be a parent, that path doesn’t feel right. But if you’ve grown up in a world where everyone you know, and everyone you follow, and every character in every movie and every TV show is getting married and having children, how do you distinguish what you want versus what society wants you to want? And if you do decide to have children…does your whole purpose have to switch to motherhood? To help answer these questions Laura speaks with parenthood clarity mentor Ann Davidman. Ann and Denise L. Carlini wrote the book ‘Motherhood - Is It For Me?’ and Ann runs an online Motherhood Clarity Course and Fatherhood Clarity Course for people struggling with indecision. Laura asks Ann: why do we feel shame over not knowing if we want to have children? What is the difference between our desire for children vs our decision to have children? Can we have more than one purpose in life? And most importantly…how do we start to figure all of this out?

When old exercise patterns trigger us

We talk a lot about rebuilding our relationship to food but we don’t talk as much about our relationship to exercise. Off the back of Laura’s HIIT classes in the Kic app, and the D&M we responded to last week about listening to your body, we wanted to talk about it. And just like our relationship to food - even when you’re in a good spot with exercise - past behaviours can sneak up on you when you least expect it. And this is your reminder that if you haven’t had a house party or a sleepover with your girlfriends in a while…do it!! Plus we reflect on how we’re feeling about the horrifying state of violence against women in Australia right now. Sending love to anyone who’s going through it themselves or feeling anxious and unsafe. 1800RESPECT is the national domestic, family, and sexual violence counselling, information and support service. If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic or family violence, you can call 1800RESPECT on 1800 737 732, text 0458 737 732 or visit www.1800respect.org.au for online chat and video call services. We spoke to Tarang Chawla about his personal experience with domestic violence and losing his sister Niki in 2015. The episode is called ‘The Raw Reality of Domestic Abuse and Family Violence’ https://pod.fo/e/238cc6 We also spoke to Sue & Lloyd Clarke, the parents of Hannah Clarke, who was murdered with her children by her estranged partner in 2020. The episode is called ‘Coercive control in relationships - how to spot the warning signs, with Sue & Lloyd Clarke’ https://pod.fo/e/202c1a SPECIAL SHARES  Laura: The Playlist on Netflix https://www.netflix.com/au/title/81186296?source=35 Steph: Laura’s miniseries ‘Do I Want Kids’ !!

Letting kids fail & encouraging a growth mindset - KICBUMP with Jess Sanders

Jess Sanders is a social worker and children’s author. Her latest book ‘You Can Do Hard Things - A Little One’s Guide For Not Giving Up’ helps children see disappointments as opportunities. A growth mindset empowers children to believe in themselves and reach their full potential. From building blocks, to learning times tables, children are constantly faced with difficulties, and a growth mindset helps children believe they are capable of overcoming these difficulties, if not today, then one day. In this conversation, Steph speaks with Jess about what a growth mindset actually means, how parents can model a growth mindset themselves, why children should experience failure and disappointment and what they can learn from it, not trying to “fix” our children’s emotions and giving children the tools to build their self-confidence. Check out Jess' latest book 'Life Lessons for Little Ones: You Can Do Hard Things'https://www.booktopia.com.au/life-lessons-for-little-ones-you-can-do-hard-things-jess-sanders/book/9781922930316.html  KIC UPDATE Whether you’re a new mum, soon-to-be mum or all you want in life is to be a mum, no matter what kind of mum you are, Kic is here to help you make time for you. We’re treating our KICBUMP community to 1 month free with Kic.

How Ash Paraskevas built her self-confidence back from rock bottom

When Ash Paraskevas was in her early 20’s she was in a longterm relationship, studying law (as the first person in her family to attend uni) and competing in Miss World. From the outside - it looked like she had it all. But inside she was struggling with severe anxiety, depression, domestic abuse and changing everything about herself to try and fit in and be loved. In this episode Ash generously shares how she built herself back from rock bottom to a place where she’s now living fully and authentically as herself and proud of it, including stripping back the layer of who she thought she “should” be and stepping into her sexuality as a lesbian woman. We loved this chat and can’t wait to have Ash back on for a part two BUT you can also hear more from Ash in Liv Rogers’ podcast ‘Tell Me More’ https://podcasts.apple.com/nz/podcast/the-superpower-of-vulnerability-with-ash-paraskevas-part-1/id1716520554?i=1000640936889 FOLLOW US Ash @ashparaskevas on Instagram KICPOD @kicpod on Instagram Join our closed KICPOD Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/630561419185145/ Steph Claire Smith @stephclairesmith on Instagram & @steph_claire_smith on TikTok Laura Henshaw @laura.henshaw on Instagram & @laura.henshaw on Tiktok Ash Paraskevas @ashparaskevas on Instagram Kic @kic.app on Instagram & @kic on TikTok and kicapp.com or download the app from the App Store and Google Play Store

Recognising the signs of grooming and what to do about it - KICBUMP with Jayneen Sanders

This episode is tough but a really important conversation for every parent and person with young people in their lives. Grooming refers to an older child or adult establishing a trusting relationship with a child or their family to sexually abuse or exploit the child. The average age that a child is abused is 6.8 years old and 90% of children who are abused know their abuser.  To help make sense of it all, Steph speaks with Jayneen Sanders. Jayneen is a mum of three, author and educator who writes children’s books on body boundaries, respect, consent, body safety, feelings and emotions. In this episode, they speak about what grooming actually is, the red flags parents can look out for, how parents can live with the fear of letting their children out of their sights, what to do if you suspect your child is being groomed, and what support exists.

An important conversation about breast cancer with Kic community member Ellie

In January, one of our Kic community members, Ellie, messaged us on Instagram asking to share her story of being diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer diagnosis at just 31 years old. Ellie noticed a lump in one of her breasts last August. When it didn’t go away, Ellie made an appointment to get it checked out by her GP. Within days, Ellie underwent an ultrasound and biopsy to find out it was breast cancer, which led to more biopsies, an egg retrieval and chemotherapy. Ellie’s plans for a holiday in Europe, starting a family, and her work as a midwife & nurse, were all put on pause while she underwent six months of chemo. We spoke to Ellie a few weeks before she was having a surgery to determine whether or not she would need a double mastectomy. After our conversation with Ellie, we speak with Kirsten Pilatti, the CEO of Breast Cancer Network Australia, about the importance of doing regular breast checks and seeking help if you notice something looks or feels different.

Losing a loved one & giving birth 3 weeks later - KICBUMP with Katie Lolas

Katie Lolas is beloved by her online community who she shares her life with. When Katie’s sister, Nadia passed away unexpectedly in 2021 at 31 years old, Katie’s community grieved alongside her. But Katie had another job to do: she was 35 weeks pregnant and in three weeks’ time, she was due to deliver her first child, Harper, via C-section. When Katie was trying to grieve one life changing event, she was also trying to celebrate another life changing event, and trying not to feel guilty for doing one or the other. In this episode, Katie speaks with Steph all about of it.  They discuss how Katie learned that Nadia had passed away, the pressure to feel happy for having a healthy baby while she was grieving her sister, being diagnosed with depression and the support she received to get through it, how she remembers Nadia now, and what life is like with her three-year-old Harper and nine-month-old Eli. Katie stayed at a Tresillian centre.

Either we’re having sex…or we’re roommates. We want the in-between stuff!

Can a kiss ever just be a kiss…or does it always have to lead to sex? Laura was scrolling Instagram where she saw this clip with Psychosexologist Karen Gurney and Diary of a CEO host Steven Barlett discussing the idea of “sexual currency” aka everything you do with your partner *except* sex. Steph and Laura share how this plays out in their own relationships…and why Laura has to have her wits about her when she’s naked and she knows Dalton is home. Plus Steph shares a story of a recent encounter with a brown snake at the Murray River and we hear about the one and only time Laura went kneeboarding on the river. If these stories didn’t scare you off the Aussie wildlife, check out Josh Neille on Instagram.

Should I break up with them? Relationship coach Megan Luscombe answers your questions

Overwhelmingly the most common questions we receive in the KICPOD inbox are about relationships. For this episode we brought in an expert: Megan Luscombe has specialised in relationship and business coaching, working with individuals and couples, for the past 12 years. We put three different scenarios (from you) to Megan and asked for her advice: I love him but I’m not in love with him anymore I’m young and I’m scared I’m missing out on my 20’s by being in a relationship He said he wanted two kids and he changed his mind after we had one.  And then we asked the most common questions that came up: am I a bad person for thinking about my ex while I’m in a relationship with someone else? How do I stop having feelings for someone who never had feelings for me? I can’t stand my partner’s family - should we break up?

Only 20% of women invest. Here’s why you shouldn’t be scared of it, with Girls That Invest founder Simran Kaur

Simran Kaur’s mission is to put money into the hands of women through investing. Most of us haven’t been taught about investing. If you haven’t, you might think it’s too hard, or too risky, or our parents told us to save our money so that’s what we’ve always done. This means that only 15-20% of women invest worldwide and in Australia only 42% of women invest compared to 58% of men, citing affordability as their main barrier to investing (according to ASX Australian Investor Study). Simran is here to change that. She is the founder of Girls That Invest: a multi-million-dollar money media company with the #1 investing podcast for women where she breaks down the intimating world of investing and growing wealth, minus the jargon. In this episode, Sim joins Steph & Laura from New Zealand to walk us through investing for a first timer: the difference in returns between saving vs investing, the different places you can invest, how long you need to keep your money in each investment, and the risk profile for each, why investing even a small amount is better than nothing, and how to get started if you truly feel like you know nothing. The advice in this episode is not personalised investing advice and is educational in nature. Remember to do your research and speak to a financial advisor for your personal situation.  FOLLOW SIMRAN Simran @ms.simran.kaur on Instagram Girls That Invest @girlsthatinvest on Instagram Listen to Simran's podcast Girls That Invest https://podfollow.com/1529887342 Simran's book 'Girls That Invest: Your Guide to Financial Independence through Shares and Stocks' Learn about Simran's masterclass https://girlsthatinvest.com/ FOLLOW US KICPOD @kicpod on Instagram Steph Claire Smith @stephclairesmith on Instagram & @steph_claire_smith on TikTok Laura Henshaw @laura.henshaw on Instagram & @laura.henshaw on Tiktok Simran Kaur @ms.simran.kaur on Instagram Kic @kic.app on Instagram & @kic on TikTok and kicapp.com or download the app from the App Store and Google Play Store

Steph’s oldest friend reveals what they did when they were teenagers

So in today’s podcast we call Steph’s oldest friend Martha to find out what Steph did at a sleepover in year eight. And Laura reflects on decision making, doing the “right” thing, and worrying about what people will think, as she unpacks two parts of the Mel Robbins’ podcast episode with Steven Bartlett that she recommended last week.  If you’re making a big decision - this is the pump up you’re looking for!

Do I or don't I want kids? - KICBUMP with Laura Henshaw

The decision to have kids is one of the biggest ones we’ll ever make.

In today’s special episode, Laura is back on KICBUMP to share her plans for a new miniseries exploring the decision to have kids from multiple perspectives, from people who didn’t want kids and had them, to people who did want kids and never had them, how they decided and how they feel about it now. And we want to hear from you: what do you want to hear in the miniseries? Who do you want to hear from? What’s holding you back? What pushed you to make a decision?

Alexis Fernandez is the host of the podcast Do You F*ing Mind, she has a Masters of Neuroscience, she's obsessed with the brain, and thankfully for us, she is REALLY good at explaining how it works. We wanted to speak with her about discipline and oh boy...did she blow our minds 🤯 In this episode, Alexis explains why discipline isn't something to be scared of and how it gives you more control and freedom to choose the life you want.

Finding community through a cerebral palsy diagnosis – KICBUMP with Kic community member Kim

Kim was 27 weeks pregnant with her first daughter when she noticed a tiny amount of bleeding. After almost a week in hospital, and a traumatic birth experience, Kim gave birth to Elsie. Elsie then spent 11 weeks in the NICU and in that time, Kim and her husband Greg learned that Elsie had suffered a brain injury through pregnancy or birth and she was given a diagnosis of spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy. In this episode, Kim shares her story with Steph: her mostly straightforward pregnancy with Elsie, Elsie’s traumatic birth, their NICU stay and how it felt to finally hold Elsie for the first time, learning of Elsie’s brain injury, finding support online from parents of children with disabilities, and the decision to have a second baby. Thanks to Kic community member Kim for reaching out with her story. We hope her story helps other parents going through similar things feel less alone. Kim recommended the book 'Special: Antidotes to the obsessions that come with a child's disability' by Melanie Dimmitt https://www.simonandschuster.com.au/books/Special/Melanie-Dimmitt/9781925384680 FOLLOW US KICPOD @kicpod on Instagram Kic @kic.app on Instagram, @kic on TikTok and kicapp.com Steph Claire Smith @stephclairesmith on Instagram, @steph_claire_smith on TikTok Join our virtual mothers' group in the the KICBUMP Facebook group.

The best thing you can teach kids about food, movement & body image – KICBUMP with Taryn Brumfitt

Taryn Brumfitt is a body image activist, documentary director, writer, speaker, and the 2023 Australian Of The Year. Taryn created the documentary ‘Embrace’ to help us change the way we think about our bodies and ‘Embrace Kids’ to teach 9-14 year olds how to respect, move and nourish their bodies. Kids learn their first messages about food, movement and body image from their parents but parents can’t control what messages their kids learn outside the home. This is where Body Blocks comes in: a free learning resource for childhood educators. In this moving conversation, Taryn joins Steph to discuss how Taryn has reframed the parts of her body that changed through childbirth and feeding 4,000 meals to her children, the impact that parents’ and teachers’ language can have on kids for years afterwards, and the importance of sending positive messages to kids even if you don’t always feel them inside.

How to ACTUALLY achieve your goals this year – with trainer Danny Kennedy

If you’re setting goals this new year, you need to listen to this. Less than 10% of new years’ resolutions succeed. If you want to achieve the goals you set yourself this year, this episode with Kic’s Head Trainer (and our goal setting champion) Danny will give you the tools and motivation you need to make it happen. In this episode, Danny speaks with us about what makes a good goal, setting goals that are challenging but realistic, the mental blocks that stop us from achieving our goals, and why the short-term weight loss challenges that are so popular at this time of year are destined to fail.  FOLLOW US: Danny: @djkfitness on Instagram KICPOD @kicpod on Instagram Kic @kic.app on Instagram & @kic on TikTok and kicapp.com or download the app from the App Store and Google Play Store Steph Claire Smith @stephclairesmith on Instagram & @steph_claire_smith on TikTok Laura Henshaw @laura.henshaw on Instagram & @laura.henshaw on Tiktok

If you thought not washing her bra or vibrator was where Laura’s grotty habits ended…wait until you hear what she does (or more importantly…doesn’t!) wash in the shower.  Plus Steph opens up about something she’s working on in her relationship with Josh and we answer your D&M about what to do if you suspect a male colleague is being paid more than you.

Don’t call it a “cookie” - talking to kids about consent & body safety – KICBUMP with Jayneen Sanders

Jayneen Sanders is a mum of three, author and educator. Her childrens' books teach kids about body boundaries, respect, consent, body safety, feelings and emotions.

In this important conversation, Steph asks Jayneen about the importance of calling ‘private parts’ by their proper names, what age to start these conversations with kids, and the skills Jayneen teaches kids including creating a list of trusted adults that they can come to in case anything happens.

The pressure to “bounce back” after childbirth - KICBUMP with Em Clarkson

Em Clarkson is a new mum and the founder of fitness community ‘The Have A Goes’. At 8 months postpartum, Em's body looks and feels different to what she’s used to, but instead of getting caught up in the pressure of “bouncing back”, she’s appreciating what her body is capable of and finding empowerment through rebuilding her strength and fitness. Steph & Em discuss how Em went from running in circles in the dark and hating her body, to leading a fitness movement, her debilitating experience of HG (Hyperemesis gravidarum) which prevented her from training through her pregnancy, how her daughter Arlo has cured her anxiety, and running her first half marathon since giving birth.

Being open about sex in a conservative family & overcoming social anxiety, with Savannah Sachdev

Savannah Sachdev has gone for a run nearly 850 days in a row now, and although that may only seem possible from someone who is a pro runner with extreme motivation, for Savannah, she began running purely for the amazing effect it has on her mental health. Rather than focusing on distance or time, Savannah listens to her body and runs what she feels is right for her on the day. Her goal is to promote movement each day, regardless of what that looks like for every individual. In today's episode, Savannah also generously opens up about the struggles she has faced growing up in a conservative and strict family, what this means for her in comparison to her brother in terms of their romantic relationships, and how her family feels about her being openly sex positive online. She also speaks to her struggles with being in group situations and how she navigates this in the work that she does.

* Trigger warning - this episode mentions abuse. For support, contact 1800RESPECT * Mitch Larsson found himself living a pretty common lifestyle as a married father and lawyer, but a snap decision one day in his 40s changed his life forever. He became a male escort. In today's episode, we hear about what brought him to this snap decision, what the response was like from his wife, family and friends, and what he has told his 8 year old son. We also delve into another side of this particular line of work that is often overlooked - that it is very often more than just sex. Mitch explains that some who seek the services of an escort are also seeking companionship or the desire to rebuild their confidence.

Jordan Lambropoulos is now thriving after fighting for her life just 3 months ago

You may have come across Jordy on Tiktok (@itsjordysworld) where she very openly shares the details of her life with a chronic illness and living with an ostomy bag. At age 9, Jordy was diagnosed with a rare case of Crohn's disease - an incurable chronic inflammatory bowel condition where her body attacks her own digestive system. Only a few months ago, she was fighting for her life in the process of a stem cell transplant, but after a successful surgery (and the first of its kind in Australia) she is now thriving and things are looking up for the 25 year old. In today’s KICPOD episode, Jordy so eloquently shares her journey of what led her to the transplant, how it felt thinking her time was up, and what it was like filming a goodbye video for her family. She also explains what life is like with an ostomy bag, how she is confident to be 100% herself on social media, and her feelings around the prospects of dating.

Woody Whitelaw on friendship, mental health and surprisingly… gut health!

You’ve either heard Woody Whitelaw on his national drive radio show ‘Will & Woody’, or perhaps you’ve seen him on TV on The Celebrity Apprentice Australia or I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! What makes Woody so unique is that he manages to be hilarious and witty (eg asking Steph about her bowel movements and suggesting to coach her while she’s on the loo), all while showing an incredibly vulnerable side, being extremely open and generous about his experiences with mental health, his relationships and work life. His other half, Will, was on the podcast not too long ago where he was also very open about his mental health and coping with depression (you can listen to that ep here), and in today’s episode Woody speaks about how they navigate their friendship, how to be a lifeboat for those you love but also lean on them in times of need, and why having difficult conversations can be the best thing you can do. Among this chat, Steph and Laura share a recent hard conversation between the two of them that their husbands Josh and Dalton suggested they have.

Pelvic floor dysfunction & Steph’s bladder prolapse - KICBUMP with Rachel Fitt

Pelvic floor dysfunction is super common, particularly during your childbearing years. But just because it’s common, it doesn’t mean we should do nothing about it! Rachel Fitt is a Melbourne based Pelvic Floor & Continence Physiotherapist (and Steph’s physio actually), and in today’s KICBUMP episode she explains the importance of looking after your pelvic floor, and what to do if you suspect something is not right. Steph also shares her own experience of having a bladder prolapse after giving birth to her son Harvey, and asks Rachel what would have happened if she ignored the symptoms and not have gone for an appointment. Rachel also explains why you should take extra care getting back into exercise after birth, and takes us through some of the strengthening exercises during the podcast. Put it this way, you won’t be able to listen to today’s episode without squeezing your anus! 🤣

To sleep train or not to sleep train? That is.. up to you! - KICBUMP with Maggie Chretien

Maggie Chretien, also known as 'The Peninsula Mumma' on Instagram is an actress, writer, presenter, podcast host, and the biggest job of all... a mum of two! Maggie is incredibly open about her motherhood journey, her experience with prolapse, mental health, confidence and a bunch of other things, but in today's KICBUMP episode we wanted to focus particularly on her experience with sleep training her children, which came with an absurd amount of backlash from people when she opened up about it online. Sleep training may not be for every parent and that is totally okay, but in today's episode we discuss what options there are, what worked for Steph and what worked for Maggie, how to block out the noise of everyone else's unhelpful opinions and much more. Check out Maggie's podcast 'MA15 Plus' with Alex Nation.
