My guest today needs little intro. She is a leading expert in period health, hormonal health and an advocate for women's health. Maisie Hill is the author of best selling Period Power and Perimenopause Power, she runs her own podcast Period Power, and offers health coaching via her innovative membership platform The Flow Collective. She is also a trained acupuncturist, Chinese Medicine specialist and a doula. Five years ago Maisie gave birth to her son Nelson, which inspired a new trajectory in her work - to write, and this is how she broke waves with her debut book Period Power! I was fascinated to learn more about Maisie's journey into motherhood, her career and the role of food and nourishment in her experience of mama hood. So in this episode we cover all of those topics and more!

    S3 E9 MotherFood with Uyen Luu, food writer, photographer, chef and mother

    1:03:00

    A powerful episode that celebrates food and family! It is a moving tribute to Uyen's own family who experienced an unimaginably difficult transition from post-war Vietnam to London, but also to the very concept of Family and its power to heal, nurture and support us. Uyen's passion and genuine love for food shines through every word and will undoubtedly make you re-evaluate your own relationship to the seemingly banal daily ritual of feeding yourself and your family. We talk about Vietnamese food culture, the tradition of sharing your meals, the flavours and the deep understanding of how food nourishes your body on a deep level. Uyen share recipes and ideas for postpartum and baby weaning, and if I have another chance to experience that beautiful phase in my life, Uyen's new cookbook Vietnamese will definitely be the source of inspiration for me!

    S3 E6 MotherFood with Georgina Hayden, food writer, stylist and Greek-Cypriot mama

    1:13:03

    Welcome back to Part 2 of the 3rd Season of the MotherFood podcast!  In this episode I have the absolute joy of talking to one of my food-mama heroines, Georgina Hayden. Georgina is an acclaimed food writer, author of best-selling cookbooks, food stylist and a mother of a Greek-Cypriot origin. This conversation, which I have been dreaming of since the very beginning of the podcast, is likely to move you to tears and make you laugh, and feel all the feels in-between. Georgina's story of motherhood is so powerful, moving and inspiring. While she never doubted her desire to be a mother of a big family, her journey towards that vision was all but straightforward. She experienced child loss when her first baby, Archie, died short after birth, her and her husband went through a miscarriage and IVF treatments to be able to welcome their two daughters Perspehone and Elektra, who are now 4 years old and 9 months respectively. We also talk about the role of food and sisterhood in a life of a Mother, Georgina's views on gender roles within a family and why it is essential to include men into all conversations, while she also shares some insights into a life with two under 4s during a lockdown alongside some tips on weaning and eating as a family!

    1:21:59

    Welcome to this 2-part special episode dedicated to Her Nutrition, where I have the pleasure of talking to nutritionists behind UK's unique food-grown supplements brand, Wild Nutrition. Their supplements are ethically and sustainably sourced, and are 100% food-grown, i.e. an organic way of producing supplements without any addition of synthetic elements, solvents or bulking agents.  In this episode, featuring nutritional therapist, and mama of two, Marianne Grechko, we delve into nutrition and supplements for fertilely, pregnancy and postpartum. This episode is packed full of useful insight into the science of nutrition addressing specifically the needs of female body from pre-conception to postpartum, so I would invite you to make some notes. We also talk about how food is grown and where do the nutrients in the food come from - through that we touch on the essential topics of understanding the food chain, and eating seasonally and locally where possible. Marianne really is the perfect person whose outlook very much resonate with my own - she embodies both the science and the intuitive approach to food. Her indepth knowledge is rooted in profound love of food and nature as well as in the feeling of trust in her intuitive and the innate wisdom of the body. While there is a ton of very sound scientific nutritional advice,  I hope the key message that you carry out is that the main thing is to eat with pleasure and honesty with yourself, as it is the truthful and joyful process of eating that nourishes your body more than any particular ingredient!
