91 | Eleesha Quinn Three Vaginal Births, Private MidWife, Two Inductions

In this week’s episode, I interview Eleesha Quinn. Eleesha was incredibly lucky to conceive on her first attempt with her first daughter. Her husband was working a job of fly in and fly out so they had limited opportunities to ‘try’ and they were incredibly thankful to have success straight away. Living somewhat remotely Eleesha went through shared care with her GP and gave birth in Bundaberg Hospital closer to her family. Eleesha was induced and her husband was sent home by the midwives as they felt it would be a long wait. Eleesha actually progressed very quickly and spent the night labouring on her own.

Today's episode is sponsored by Silky Tots. Nikki Bardis is a mum of two from Mount Eliza in Victoria who launched the Silky Tots’ range of silk sleeping products in May when she noticed clumps of hair in her daughters cot when she woke from sleeping.

Normal cotton sheets twist and tug at fine baby hair, causing knotting and dreading of the hair to occur and eventually, a lot of hair loss. Sleeping on silk eliminates this friction as hair glides across the surface.. All Silky Tots products have been designed in line with the SIDS safety guidelines, fitting snug over your normal cot sheet to create a silky barrier between your bub's head and the sheet below. Silky Tots also produce a silk pillow slip that work wonders managing knotting in older kids hair. We’ll back any product that allows us to spend less time fighting and screaming when we have to get ready for a busy day!

Silk is also naturally hypoallergenic, helping soothe sensitive skin, dust mite repellent to make breathing crisper and cleaner and also temperature regulating so your baby will stay cool in summer and warm in winter! Find Silky Tot’s online Instagram at @SilkyTots and go to www.silkytots.com to choose from a whole host of different colours to suit all nurseries!
