Creating a potent, personalised culture of health around food and the kitchen is one of my main focuses on this health journey and that’s why I’ve invited Simon Favorito to join us on this episode. I’ve had the honour of sharing a house with Simon years ago and have had an up close look at how effective he is a bringing the romance back to way we interact with food, how to use food addictions as an access for transformation and ensuring that all senses are engaged in the cooking process so that we can get the best possible health and happiness from our food.
Delving into the birthing realms this week with the wonderful Sheryl Sidery. Sheryl has been practicing midwifery since 1985. The experience of her first birth lead her into this beautiful line of work. She felt alone and unsupported. She felt that no one was aware of what an enormous life changing experience becoming a mother is, and so she became a midwife. She wanted to be truly “with woman” as she embarks on motherhood – feeling strong, confident, transformed and joyful. For her, that’s what midwifery is all about. Her primary philosophy is that pregnancy and birth is a period of great transformation, one that is necessary for parenting. She finds that having one-to-one midwifery care throughout pregnancy, birth and early parenting provides the best start to life with a newborn.
