We are running a Classic "Your Dunamas Life" this week because Catherine's husband, Jeff, had to have emergency surgery this week, and she was unable to record a new show. So in honor of Jeff we are rerunning on show on Plancenta Encapsulation When and When Not. Jeff does placenta encapsularion for the Dunamas Center so we think this is fitting. Please pray for his speedy recovery.
Many people are unaware that the placenta is a powerhouse of nutrition...for the mom! This show talks about encapsulating the placenta and turning it into a small capsule supplement for the mother to get all the nutritional benefits in the months following childbirth. Dr. Pauline and Catherine have asked Jeff Pearson to join them as he is the one at the Dunamas Center who does the planeta encapsulation. They will discuss the process, and the pros and cons, as well as times when we might want t

I'll be talking with Jodi Selander of PlacentaBenefits.info about options for using your placenta to benefit your health after birth.
"The key to Postpartum Wellness is inside you."
While placentophagy is unusual in the U.S. this traditional practice has many benefits to offer postpartum women including: more energy, increased milk supply, and a natural way to restore balance to your body's hormones after birth.
We'll talk about what these benefits can mean for mothers in the first few wee
Doulas are women who empower other women to have the birthing experience they want to have. Doulas meet with you before you deliver, stay with you while you deliver and visit with you once you are home with your newborns.
So, I navigated well around all the vagina talk with two doulas and an ob - gyn. I deftely deleted the part about placenta encapsulation (eating the placenta for hormonal and nutritional effects. I'm all for it if iit works for you but this show airs at breakast time!) Then, I get my last call of the day from Virginia Madsen. The Sideways actress has a new movie coming out, so I jumped at the chance to talk to her. I should have read the full e-mail. "See more below", it advised. Suddenly, I was knee deep in a conversation about vaginal atrophy and dyspareunia; painful intercourse. Viginia is serving as a spokeswoman to open up the dialogue. She brings with her Dr. Pollycove. Yeah, right, Pollycove sounds like a code word for vagina! So listen in and hear how you can have the birthing experience you want, and years later, the vagina you want. As they say....you can't make this stuff up!
On this pre- show to the big show. I play a snippet to the beginning of the show, I talk about what we talked about, and where to find the new home of the show. Also where to send us emails, and odd stories. So it's only a short show, but it leads to funny stuff. I MADE A MISTAKE ON THE SHOW...THE WEBSITE IS www.itskindofafunnypodcast.info Thanks for listening.

Approximately 1 in every 6 babies in the USA are born with harmful mercury levels in their blood. Consumption of fish contaminated by mercury is the main route of human exposure. The mercury drops from the air into the water system, where fish we eat eventually take it up. Mercury is extremely toxic to the brain and nervous system, especially to the rapidly developing brain of the unborn child during early pregnancy. When a pregnant woman eats mercury-contaminated fish, the mercury in the fish enters the mother’s blood stream. Once in the mother’s bloodstream, mercury can move directly across the placenta to enter the body of her unborn child. One of the body’s protective shields against damage to the brain, called “the blood-brain barrier,” is not fully developed until the first year of life. Thus, in the unborn child, mercury can cross this incomplete barrier and accumulate in the brain, causing developmental disabilities and brain damage resulting in lowered intelligence and learning problems. This has lifetime implications. One study found that “the resulting loss of intelligence causes diminished economic productivity that persists over the entire lifetime of these children.” The unborn are also being harmed by air pollution (SO2) that will be reduced as a co-benefit of the mercury standard. This pollution has been linked to birth defects, low birth weight, premature births, stillbirths and infant deaths.
