Google Your Name

It has been a while since I Googled my own name. I am usually a bit surprised by what I find. Today’s gem was this blog written by one of my homebirth mamas – Lesley Cain. She has a blog called

What a great birth story and a powerful mama!

Check it out –

If there are more birth stories out there I am unaware of that FATS is featured, send me the link!

Placentas. Again.

My student, Mona Ziems, introduced me to this GREAT podcast “The Longest Shortest Time.”  What a fantastic Podcast about parenting and birth and hard conversations with the short people you live with and so much more. I am in love!!!

Their most recent episode “A Childless Man Makes Edible Placenta” is a brilliant breakdown of consuming your placenta. If you ever wanted all the details explained clear as day about that magic organ, it is the best 45 minutes you could spend.

Freedom and the Seed supports families’ decision to do whatever they want with this life giving organ.  Some of our clients plant it with a special tree or rose bush. Others have consumed it in smoothies or various recipes (Spaghetti, Stew, Sushi style, etc…) and still others have discarded it. Whatever the path, please take a moment after birth to revere it. What a miracle the whole process of growing a baby and how utterly amazing the placenta is!

We are also happy to help you process your placenta into capsules, tinctures, chocolates and/or smoothies and meals. Just give us a call – 480.528.1689

Happy Placenta!
