In today’s episode, I interview Rachel Burke. Rachel shares her first pregnancy and birth of her little boy Hugo. Very early on in her pregnancy, she experienced some bleeding while working on a fashion shoot interstate. Panicked, she called her GP and then made her way to the hospital to try and determine if she was having a miscarriage. Thankfully the bleeding began to ease up over the next 24hours, and it was later determined that she was experiencing an implantation bleed. Rachel went on to carry her baby to full term and was induced. To hear her full story, tune into this weeks episode.
Today’s episode of the podcast is brought to you by Frankly Eco. Did you know this Australian made skincare brand all started with a Nipple Ointment to support Breastfeeding Mamas? While studying for her Diploma in Breastfeeding Management, Co-Founder Anna, volunteered her time with lots of women to provide Breastfeeding and infant-support. Through these experiences Anna found there wasn’t much choice in regards to nipple creams or ointments to help soothe mama’s with sore or inflamed nipples. Anna realised, not only were the options limited, but the options women did have were not of the natural or plant-based variety. From that moment on Anna, together with sister Lilly, went to work to develop the first Frankly Eco skincare product, the Nipple Ointment - to give all women who chose to breastfeed a natural, plant-based and safe alternative.
