Episode 100: Call the Midwife Holistic Care Models

Episode #100: Call the Midwife! Holistic Care Models with Allison Tartari

Hello and welcome to our 100th episode! Whether you’ve been listening since episode one, or if this is your first episode, we are so grateful to everyone who’s come along on this journey with us. 

To celebrate this week, Allison Tartari of Tourmaline Collective will join us to discuss the power and importance of education and community gathering to assist women in their pregnancy journey.

Allison found her way to midwifery care through the pregnancy and birth of her fourth child. She knew she wanted to help support women during pregnancy, and avoid the unnecessary interventions she encountered with her other children. She became passionate about educating families on other, safer options for birth. She became a D.O.N.A trained doula. Out of this passion for holistic, integrative healthcare Tourmaline Birth and Wellness Center was born.

Their goal is to make midwifery care accessible to all women no matter their background or financial status and to educate the community on the benefits of midwifery care. Let’s dive in!

In this episode, we cover:

  • The expanded role of the midwives
  • Postpartum depression
  • Community care
  • The ideal birth team
  • Setting expectations
  • Self-care as a ceremony
  • Creating your birth plan and the fourth trimester
  • Box for Loss 
  • Women's rituals and coping with postpartum depression or miscarriage
