Is fresh best? How often should pet-soiled sheets be washed?

One Bad Mother Episode 119: What Happened To My Personal Space? plus guest Penny Simkin

| 0 comments
Show: 
One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Penny Simkin

Warning! Our show goes a lot of places this week. Luckily they fall into neat categories! (see our trigger warnings note below)

This week, Biz and Theresa talk about personal space, which is a thing our kids like to act like they've never heard of! Plus, Biz finds something new to love and Theresa prepares to send her youngest off to daycare. And renowned author, childbirth educator, physical therapist, and doula Penny Simkin joins us to discuss actual helpful ways to prepare for a first childbirth experience as well as ways those who have suffered sexual trauma can prepare for childbirth.

Trigger Warnings:
Opening Segment: Safe but some high emotions about childcare decisions
Topic Segment: Mostly safe, but does touch on surviving sexual trauma and how a child who doesn’t respect your space can effect you
Interview: Two warnings. 1. It does talk in detail about preparing for child birth while being a victim of sexual trauma. 2. Additional risk of questioning your birth choices if one is sensitive to that.
Rant: Normally fine, but after the previous segments, it might be a tough one!
Wrap up: Biz and Theresa try very hard to bring it all together!

Penny Simkin's books are on Amazon, including The Birth Partner, The Labor Progress Handbook, When Survivors Give Birth, and more.

Y2K! w/ Todd Anderson and Stephen Skelton

| 1 comment

Hello Buddies! Allow me to paint you a picture: The year was 1999! Panic swept the land as the new year approached and with the terrifying possibility of the Y2K Virus! Planes would fall from the sky! We'd be launched back to the Great Depression! Nuclear weapons would be launched worldwide! We counted down as the big ball dropped and on 0... nothing happened. Well, actually a few relatively minor (though in one case incredibly shocking and horrible thing happened) things occurred, but we did not find ourselves in a new Stone Age. We're joined this week by Todd Anderson and Stephen Skelton of The Film Pigs to discuss the Apocalypse that almost was and what we can learn from it. You should probably hurry up and download before your computer glitches...
