Totally Mommy
6 - Define Vulva w/ Amy Biedel!

Elizabeth's long time friend and soul sister in sensitivity & dog rescue is our co-host today! Actress, singer and doula AMY BEIDEL came on and discussed the good (getting certified in childbirth education) the bad (her son picking up her less than pride-filled mannerisms, Elizabeth's swollen undercarriage) and the funny (her three year old being obsessed with anatomy, Elizabeth crying over a touch being the wrong kind). Then they discuss why Amy thinks one of their dog rescue foibles led to her pregnancy before giving their unqualified advice to listener questions about their thoughts on circumcision, how to navigate fertility testing, how to deal with anxiety about pregnancy weight gain, and how to manage a friendship when you are in mommy-ville and she wants you to get drunk at her wedding. Enjoy!

Welcome to Totally Mommy! In our very first episode, Elizabeth and her guest/Husband Andy discuss the good, the bad and the funny: Good is feeling baby Oprah kick and future In-N-Out trips with Daddy, Bad is being scared they got the gender wrong and less sex than before, and Funny is the reaction to baby's name and something having to do with Adult Content on Andy's part. Then they answer listener questions about fearing social snafu's for your child at school and whether or not Elizabeth enjoys people touching her pregnant belly. Thank you for listening - hope you enjoy!
