In this episode I'm joined by birth doula and founder of C & The Moon, Carson Meyer. After learning more about birth in college, Carson knew her calling was educating women. By understanding the differences between conventional hospital births and home births, women can take back the power over their bodies, pregnancy, and birth. From the benefits of having a midwife or doula to the very real "fourth" trimester, this episode unpacks everything you need to know about natural childbirth to get us back to a place of thriving women and babies. Plus, listen to learn more about why quality skincare matters for you and the next generation.

Carson Meyer, Birth Doula and Founder of C & The Moon: Carson started making skincare products in her kitchen in Malibu as a young girl. Her mother, an environmental activist, was aware of the lack of regulation of personal care products in the US and knew that endocrine disruptors and other toxic chemicals were widely used in skincare. As she grew up, she steered her away from conventional, mass-produced makeup and nail polish. Instead, Carson and her family made their own in their kitchen with natural and organic ingredients. All that home experimentation led her to create her first product, The Malibu Made Body Scrub. Since inception, C & The Moon has become a coveted product from celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Mandy Moore and January Jones. Carson continues to grow awareness for C & The Moon while also actively serving as a birth doula. 

A few of my favorite things we cover this episode:

  • Differences between our traditional healthcare system and midwifery when it comes to pregnancy.
  • The “fourth trimester” and how it’s equally as important as the rest.
  • Why taking care of our skin is just as important as the foods we eat.
