Hey Shayla

Shayla Christine

Being a mom is HARD, and we wouldn't want to do anything else. Here we're a little granola, move with a positive, intuitive, and minimalistic approach. We do not take things too seriously and all are welcome. If you relate... welcome, you're my people. Let's talk about it and raise good humans!
017 - An open conversation about mental health in pregnancy and postpartum
An open conversation about mental health in pregnancy and postpartum with CameronHey Shayla Podcast | Ep: 017Guest: @freckledfoodieThank you for listening to the Hey Shayla podcast!  Here, we love to learn new things and decide what works for us and our family.. We're the moms that support instead of judge and know there are many ways to do something right.  I'd love to connect on Instagram @heyshaylaIt’s kind of insane how much our mood fluctuates during pregnancy and postpartum. Some of us just ride the wave, and others seek out help with therapy, journaling, mediation, medication, exercise or ANYTHING that helps us to feel ourselves again. Cameron (@freckeledfoodie) is an open book about her mental health journey which is EXACTLY why I wanted to chat mental health in pregnancy and postpartum with her.She was a breath of fresh air who openly chatted about meditation, therapy, medication and let me ask questions I don’t feel comfortable asking most people like “At what point do you need to go on medication?”. I hope this episode gives you the confidence to get help however that best looks for you!Xo ShayJoin the email list to be notified when episodes go live HERE!Brands I am an affiliate with + Discount codes:*California Beach Co - Travel Playpen use HEYSHAYLA for an additional 15% off whatever sale they're running!*TushBaby - Great “Up-Down” Baby carrier use code HEYSHAYLA for 15% offLet's Connect!Instagram (@heyshayla),YouTube (Hey Shayla)Website (www.heyshayla.com)Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/shop/heyshayla)**Disclaimer: Please note that some of the links here are affiliate links.

We're the moms that support instead of judge and know there are many ways to do something right.  I'd love to connect on Instagram @heyshaylaIn the instagram culture that we live in now, people think they need to quit their job, sell all of their things and buy a van to be able to travel. Also, people love to tell new parents to “do it now before you can’t”. Well Travel Writers Lindsey and Cole Ranzau took that on as a personal challenge to continue traveling and adventuring around Minnesota (and the world) even… ESPECIALLY after their daughter was born.Lindsey and Cole open up with me to share their mindset on getting outside and JUST DOING IT! We hope this leaves you inspired to gather up the energy and get going with your little one!BOOK mentioned:  “There is no such thing as bad weather” Xo ShayJoin the email list to be notified when episodes go live HERE!Affiliates in this Episode:*My Little Eaters: Guide to Baby Led Weaning use code HEYSHAYLA for 15% off*Clearly Filtered: Filtered water bottle pitcher use code HEYSHAYLA for 15% offLet's Connect!Instagram (@heyshayla)YouTube (Hey Shayla)Website (www.heyshayla.com)Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/shop/heyshayla)**Disclaimer: Please note that some of the links here are affiliate links.

We're the moms that support instead of judge and know there are many ways to do something right.  I'd love to connect on Instagram @heyshaylaUnless you have a planned c-section, that option may not be one that you heavily consider when you think about how your birth will play out.  Many women come out of c-section a little stunned and wondering what just happened (and what to do now). Not Liz! Liz felt empowered by her emergency c-section. Knowing that that isn’t the norm for many women I wanted to interview her so we could hear her story of a long labor and eventually an empowering birth.  Liz also chatted with me about body image postpartum and putting in the work to FEELING better, however that looks for you.Xo ShayJoin the email list to be notified when episodes go live HERE!Brands I am an affiliate with + Discount codes:*LoveBug Probiotics - Pre and postnatal probiotics use code HEYSHAYLA for 15% off*Kindred Bravely - Maternity Sports Bra use code HEYSHAYLA for 20% offLet's Connect!Instagram (@heyshayla),YouTube (Hey Shayla)Website (www.heyshayla.com)Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/shop/heyshayla)**Disclaimer: Please note that some of the links here are affiliate links.

Expect THESE emotions (&hormones) in pregnancy, postpartum and weaning with Dr. Carrie JonesHey Shayla Podcast | Ep: 013Guest: @dr.carriejones a functional medicine and women's health/hormone doctorThank you for listening to the Hey Shayla podcast!  Here, we love to learn new things and decide what works for us and our family.We're the moms that support instead of judge and know there are many ways to do something right.  I'd love to connect on Instagram @heyshaylaThere is SO MUCH we didn’t learn about our own bodies. Most of us have NO CLUE what goes on in the body when we ovulate, have our period, get pregnant. So when our mood (and labido) tank postpartum we don’t know 1. That it wont last forever and 2. That is totally NORMAL. I had to have Dr. Carrie Jones, a friend, guru and functional medicine and women’s health/hormone doctor on to tell us all exactly what happens inside our bodies. This is the information we needed going into pregnancy and postpartum (and for me when I weaned) so we knew our crazy was… well normal crazy. That being said, it may be normal but that doesn’t make it any less horrible and we FULLY SUPPORT  talk therapy and medication to help you feel back to yourself!Xo ShayJoin the email list to be notified when episodes go live HERE!Brand's I LOVE + Discount codes:1.

We're the moms that support instead of judge and know there are many ways to do something right.  I'd love to connect on Instagram @heyshaylaAs moms our bodies, hormones, emotions and energy levels can be insane and make us wonder if we’ll ever feel like our old selves again. And while we probably won’t (I mean this new title is more than all of those things) we can do things to feel better. I’ve been working with Stephanie, a clinical nutritionist and owner of Ooh Wow Nutrition, and after looking at my labs she recommended natural ways to support my thyroid, low mood and energy.  In this episode we go through some of my history and my labs. I wanted to share Stephanie with you if you are feeling depleted and looking for someone to help!I enjoy working with Stephanie because she combines data (YOUR BLOOD) with a natural and holistic approach to find a solution. If this is you, I hope this episode helps to give you some guidance.Xo ShayConnect with Stephanie: IG:  @oohwownutritionWebsite: https://linktr.ee/oohwownutritionhttps://www.oohwownutrition.com/Join the email list to be notified when episodes go live HERE!Affiliates in this Episode:*Expecting and Empowered: use HeyShayla for $10 offLet's Connect!Instagram (@heyshayla),YouTube (Hey Shayla)Website (www.heyshayla.com)Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/shop/heyshayla)**Disclaimer: Please note that some of the links here are affiliate links.
