76. Nature’s Ancient Design: Exalting Life by Honoring the Physiologic Truths of Childbearing - Rachelle Garcia Seliga

Medicine Stories

How do we support thriving life on earth through the pathway of maternal health? Our physiologic design is the inarguable truth, but in today’s confusing online culture well meaning morality politics often obscure what eons of evolution make clear. If we want to best support babies and their families, do the deep repair work of these times, and become the fully realized adults we were born to be, we must have an accurate understanding of what our biology needs from us. Learn more about studying in community with Rachelle and exploring true wellness on the childbearing continuum, creating a culture of thriving life, and growing ourselves into the elders we so desperately need in the Innate Postpartum Care Certification Online Training at https://tinyurl.com/1darrj59. TOPICS: Social engagement: the lesser-known third branch of the autonomic nervous system (beyond sympathetic and parasympathetic)  Getting out of our conditioned morality and turning to nature/life/evolution as our ultimate teacher  Eating to grow a baby, birth a baby, help the body recover from birth, shift from gestation to lactation, replenish iron stores, and supply the nursling with necessary nutrients Babies in utero and at the breast literally grow their brains off of their mother’s brains (our bodies will always give our gestating or nursing babies nutrients first- at our expense, if we aren’t getting enough) Health is multigenerational The profound lack of emotional and spiritual maturation in modern adults Be real with yourself and speak your truth, because you’re going to offend people no matter what “I can’t be triggered if I don’t have something to work on” Reorienting towards joy and the alchemy of women coming together to exalt life How lack of community support is toxic for mothers Keeping in mind the both/and in this time of repair Healing can only happen when we feel safe Kids and anxiety in heightened times RESOURCES (if listening on an app that doesn’t support embedded links, find these at https://mythicmedicine.love/podcast): Innate Postpartum Care Certification Online Training (early bird registration for $300 off ends 3/2; total registration period ends 3/7) Medicine Stories Patreon- get an extra $100 off coupon code for the training through 3/7 Our previous conversation- Revillaging: Maternal, Cultural, and Planetary Wellness Are One Rachelle on Instagram Rachelle's Physiologic Baby Care Course Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art by James Nestor My website MythicMedicine.love Take our fun Which Healing Herb is Your Spirit Medicine?

77. Mothering the Mothers with Rachelle Garcia Seliga

Belonging

Today on the Belonging podcast, I am joined by Rachelle Garcia Seliga. Rachelle is a Mother, Wife, and Midwife who has spent the past 18 years working with women and families, in service to woman-centered/ family-centered birth, health, and Life. She is deeply invested in the revitalization of community living as the most important medicine of our times. All of her work is dedicated to midwifing a cultural shift — honoring our innate wisdom, personal authority, and the sanctity of Life.This conversation with Rachelle was one I deeply needed to have in one of the hardest weeks of my postpartum journey. Her words really land deeply with me, and I truly don't think you need to have given birth or have a child to feel the depth and the urgency of this conversation. Together we talk about defining midwifery as the original tenders to community care, the unavoidable grief at the repair work we as a global community must do to tend to birthing folk and re-village, returning to our biology to break the cycle of dis-ease, pathology treatment vs. care-taking, the importance of the exo-gestation period (aka postpartum), how to begin the process of re-villaging and creating a regenerative future, and honoring the mother.Rachelle's Innate Postpartum Training Certification opens February 26, 2021!

Sex Birth Trauma with Kimberly Ann Johnson

 What Rachelle Shares: Stepping into our next maturation level as adults How our experiences being gestated and born impact us through life Why the physiological birth requires safety and protection What You’ll Hear: Returning to personal authority and innate wisdom The long-ranging impacts of gestation and birth on an infant Creating healthy, high-functioning adults in the future by prioritizing the care and health of mothers Making decisions during pregnancy and birth to support your child’s capacity in life Aligning ourselves with Thriving Life Principles instead of Death Principles Understanding how separating a mother and baby at birth may impact the baby’s attachment patternings Knowing how the use of Pitocin during birth effects postpartum depression rates Attending to our family’s health and wellness by respecting our physiology Working through fear so that we can align with Thriving Life Understanding that intense experiences are not automatically traumatic Heading the radical call to re-center our power and authority as women Connecting to our food and water sources Birthing in safe and protected environments Protecting the hormonal blueprint of labor and birth The difference between a mental idea of safety and a physical understanding of safety Why interacting while wearing masks feels incoherent to our systems How the imprinting of being born impacts us in every single decision we make Bringing implicit patterns into conscious awareness to begin changing them Looking at this choice point of humanity through the 7 Fires Prophecy ·  Remembering the essentials of being human

61. Revillaging: Maternal, Cultural, and Planetary Wellness are One - Rachelle Garcia Seliga

Medicine Stories

We cannot talk about collective health, planetary health, or the health of future generations, without talking about the health of mothers. As Rachelle says, “The dysfunction and disharmony within our human environments is manifesting through the vulnerable bodies of postpartum women. In fact it is through the bodies of mothers that humanity is being alerted to the urgency of our collective need for change.” IN THE INTRO: The reaction to my previous episode on parenting without a village IN THE INTERVIEW: Our culture is set up to fail new families/parents, and pathologizing the postpartum period overlooks the fact that it’s our social structures that are the cause of the immense emotional and psychological pain most postpartum mothers feel Mama- it’s not your fault New moms lose up to 700 hours of sleep during the first postpartum year The baseline of normal is that human babies need care 24/7 (your baby is not “high needs”), what’s not normal is living in isolated nuclear families Postpartum care cannot happen without community, and community is the one thing we are all lacking  Why it’s so hard, when it’s what we all deeply crave, to recreate the community living of our ancestors/how the colonial mindset keeps us mired in separation and distrust The pelvis as the seat of trauma for most every woman, and how we can begin to heal that How we feel in our pelvis is how we feel in our life- the connection between mental and pelvic health Intergenerational trauma and clearing the “bad medicine” that was embedded in the bodies of our female ancestors and passed down to us Anchoring in what we actually believe about ourselves, our bodies, this life Women are, and deeply feel, unsafe in our culture The incredible responsibility of raising girls (and boys tho!) in this culture, and how Rachelle and I navigate talking to them about the realities of patriarchy in an age appropriate way Teaching our kids to respect their inner authority first and foremost Reproductive and environmental justice are one and the same It’s time to grow up and do the work- our primary responsibility as adults on this planet at this time is to caretake life One simple way we can create community and support the parents of little ones If we can’t be resourced horizontally (by the folks around us), we can be resourced vertically (by our well ancestors) and by the land The sacrifices we make as mothers are a holy offering to life itself LINKS: The Innate Traditions website Innate Traditions on Instagram Medicine Stories Patreon (podcast bonuses!)
