Welcome back to the birthing in Finland podcast. This is another special episode that was recorded a little over one year ago to capture the special moment. Today I have Maria Fernandez with me again along with her then 4 week old newborn baby. We got to talking about baby brain in the immediate postpartum, the use of mantras or affirmations also for postpartum, what you can do to help support your baby brain, why the hormone oxytocin continues to be important also after birth, and why talking about “getting back to yourself” can be quite a misleading idea to keep in mind. At the end of the episode Maria mentioned that she would like to have a closing ceremony and indeed almost one year after the birth, the nest doulas gifted Maria with a beautiful loving caring ceremony that nurtured and gave her a boost of confidence. But now, let’s get started with this episode about baby brain.
