We’re revisiting another conversation this week on Professional Troublemaker! Luvvie is talking to Latham Thomas - wellness maven to the stars, birth doula, and queen regent of radical self-care.Latham is an incredible storyteller and she lets us in on how the birth of her son catapulted her into her purpose. We learn about birthing as a chemical, transformative experience and how her ancestors showed up on her behalf to guide her through the process. This episode shines a light on the Black maternal health crisis and how racial bias, education, and economic stability all play a role in the staggering statistic of black women dying or experiencing health complications during childbirth. Latham has committed to being a mother to mothers and holding the hands of women - literally and figuratively - as a doula during and after pregnancy. Her view that the birthing process shouldn’t be as scary and difficult as it is for women and birthing people in this country is what fuels her work spotlighting this global crisis. She has joined forces with Lisa Price, founder of Carol’s Daughter, to model advocacy for Black Maternal Health through an initiative called Love Delivered. You can learn more about their work and how to stand alongside them by visiting mamaglowfoundation.org and carolsdaughter.com/lovedeliveredDon't forget to follow Latham’s personal Instagram and Twitter at @GlowMaven as well.***Follow @Luvvie everywhere – Instagram, Facebook, Twitter.

Why Moms Should Ask for Help, Have a Vag Steam and More with Mama Glow’s Latham Thomas
Band of Mothers
In the premiere of their podcast “Band of Mothers,” Shayna and Tracey talk to Latham Thomas, aka Glow Maven, about the importance of caring for yourself as a woman. Latham discusses why it’s essential that every mother creates her own “sister circle of support” and that we learn to ask for help — even if it’s asking someone to watch the kids so we can shower or take a yoga class. Latham also shares why it’s essential we teach our children at a young age about women’s health, including why Mom may want to rest the first couple days of her period. Plus, should women get leave the first two days of their period each month? Latham gives her take. Then, Latham plays a game of Woo Woo or Poo Poo with Shayna and Tracey, where she reveals her thoughts on everything from sound baths and tarot cards to vag steams and psychedelic mushrooms.

Parents will be familiar with the battle to get their kids to brush their teeth, but did you know that kids have 3x more taste buds than adults? This makes them particularly sensitive to strong flavours and foaming agents, which can result in difficulties with brushing and too-short brushing times. You may also not have known but your child’s mouth also has its very own natural defences, made up of enzymes and proteins in saliva, that have the ability to protect them from dental problems.All you need to do is head to Zendium.co.uk and enter the code MOTHERKIND at checkout for 20% off their kids and adult range.Big gratitude to Zendium for supporting me and the podcast!
