Kristin Hummel is the Lead Medical Advisor of Miscarriage Matters Incorporated, a 501(c)3 public charity based in the western suburbs of Chicago, Illinois.
Kristin did not have a personal or family history of miscarriage or stillbirth. She had her firstborn child, a daughter, after an uncomplicated pregnancy. When she found out was pregnant with her second child, her daughter was only 8 months old. It was sooner than she would have preferred but she found herself excited and happy after getting over the initial shock. She wasn't concerned when the midwife wasn't able to find a heartbeat, she just assumed it was the positioning and too early in the pregnancy. Unfortunately, at 12 weeks pregnant, she miscarried her baby in a traumatizing experience at her OB office.
Kristin was depressed after her miscarriage and did not receive any support or help from the OB practice. She found the whole experience to be very cold and heartless, despite the fact that she lost a baby and felt she needed warm sympathy and understanding. Her family was shocked and saddened but weren't much help since they weren't experienced. She soon realized the subject was taboo- not welcomed to be spoken of. So she put the whole experience behind her, shutting off her grief and pain, burying it deep within.
It wasn't until Kristin was in nursing school and sitting in a class for her maternity education that her experience came back to haunt her.

Sandra Jones-Keller turned her journey of a high-risk pregnancy into life altering work for other women and couples. Taking her 20 plus years of spiritual studies and healing energy work, Sandra developed techniques to easily teach pregnant women and new moms how to have two-way communication with their babies. “We have all heard how important it is to communicate with your unborn/new born child, to talk to them regularly so they can hear and know your voice. But most people are not aware that their babies can communicate back to them,” states Jones-Keller. “Use of our intuitive muscles is essential in this new age with these new age spirits being born for a deeper level of bonding, partnership and understanding,” she continues.
Sandra also works with women and couples trying to get pregnant. Her firm yet gentle approach requires participants to look within to start clearing out any blocks that may hinder a spirit from coming through. She believes getting pregnant is not all about biology and addresses spiritual aspects as well. Find Sandra - Click Here

Sam Thurman, Cliff Stewart and Lisa Stewart of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans.
Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Sam, Cliff, and Lisa will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an actually innocent person.
Our Special Guests for tonight's show are C. Ronald Huff, Professor of Criminology, Law & Society at UC Irvine, and Donald S. Connery, Author & Independent Journalist, who has for over three decades investigated and helped expose other cases of convictions based on false confessions.
A Just Cause is currently campaigning for "FreeTheIRP6," who's been wrongly imprisoned in Florence, CO for a crime they didn't commit. Read full story: www.freetheirp6.org.

Sowing your royal oats can get one in a lot of trouble especially if you're not ready to deal with them. Such is the case of a friend of mine, here is his tale....
I'm a single guy of marriage age but I still haven't found that special woman to settle down with, while waiting, I have been playing the field. Recently I got a cold call from an Ex-fling who happens to be a Family Friend (we've messed around a few times) saying she is pregnant for me.
I do not want to marry her but at the same time I don't want to have a child out of wedlock. My mom is ecstatic about the news because the girl's mom is one of her BFFs. Matter of fact she is already shopping for Aso-ebi and planning a quick wedding. Thing though is I do not love this girl. My mom is awaiting my go ahead to plan things in full gear, what do I do or say??
There we have it folks!!! What should this brother do??? Join us on Tuesday as we swap tales and learn a thing or 2??
Join Danna and Tiffany as they talk with Dana Trentini, also known as Hypothyroid Mom. She graduated in 1993 with an Honors Bachelor of Science degree in Neuroscience from the University of Toronto with High Distinction receiving multiple scholarships and prestigious awards. She also worked for several years as a high school science teacher in a specialized school for intellectually gifted students. At Columbia University in 2002, she obtained an M.A. in Organizational Psychology and an Ed.M. in Counseling Psychology. She was no stranger to scientific research so she used her science background and research skills to learn everything she could about her thyroid disease? HypothyroidMom.com was created in memory of the unborn baby she lost to hypothyroidism.
Check out a wonderfully important article by Dana on Thyroid Nation....Mental Disorder or Undiagnosed Hypothyroidism?
Recently I had a chance to interview Iva Keene from Natural Fertility Prescription and she shared a lot of her wisdom with us!
1. The basics of a fertility diet and simple ways to add nutrients to the way you currently eat.
2. Fertility after 40, a few of the factors that come into play
"The reproductive system is not crucial to your survival, so as such, the body will not give a lot of energy and a lot of nutrients to it unless it has a lot to spare. The heart, the lungs, the brain, these are all the key organs that get the nutrients first."
3. Tests that are important, things like -
hair mineral analysis
4. How to decrease the negative affects associated with artificial reproductive technologies, including the nutrients that are really important to sustaining the health of the egg and sperm.
5. We discuss a couple ways to reduce the possibility of a miscarriage as well as what you can do after a miscarriage to facilitate balanced hormones and fertility.
Iva is also doing a fertility retreat at Sanoviv Medical Institute in Baja, California from September 19-25, 2013. It's a five star health resort that serves all organic foods and some of the latest testing, where medical doctors and naturopaths work together. As a bonus, it's also very much a resort and offers many spa services. Couples will be able to work with Iva and the staff to be able to get to the bottom of their fertility issues.
