Gabriele 2.jpg

In today’s episode, I interview Gabrielle. Gabrielle takes us through the difficulty of having a miscarriage at 10 weeks whilst living in New York. She didn’t share her loss with those around her at the time and found it a very challenging and isolating time. Gabrielle went on to conceive and deliver her first daughter whilst living in New York. After a drug-free active labour, she suffered an unexplained and traumatic post part haemorrhage. To hear more of Gabrielle's story and how she returned to Melbourne and became a doula, tune into this week's show.

Todays  episode of the show is brought to you by ergoPouch’s NEW spring/summer sleep collection launches this week! 

The Nature Collection brings three fresh nature-inspired prints across the entire range of award-winning, premium Swaddles, Sleeping Bags, Sleep Suits and layers for baby through to preschool age.   In addition to the luxurious Organic Cotton range, “The Nature Collection” sees the launch of a limited-edition Bamboo range, available in the 0.2TOG Cocoon Swaddle Bag, 0.2TOG Jersey Bag, Cot Sheets, and Layers (pyjamas).  The ergoPouch Bamboo fabric is sustainable, breathable, soft to touch and moisture-wicking. This allows for greater air flow to help keep baby cooler and comfy when sleeping in warmer temperatures, making it ideal for summer and a great choice for children with sensitive skin.   Bamboo also has antibacterial properties, so it doesn’t retain unwanted odours.  This is great for reflux babies, and those unavoidable overnight accidents! If you want to get your hands on the ergoPouch Bamboo range for cool, comfortable and most importantly, safe summer sleeps, we have an exclusive 20% off for ABS listeners using code “birthstories20” when buying online from
