Welcome to the Cervical Wellness Podcast with Denell Randall, a place where we dive into the realm of the cervix, the deep pelvis, and all the nitty gritty of taking care of our beautiful human bodies. It’s here where cutting-edge conversations are had on subjects such as lifestyle medicine, habit & behavior change, human physiology & wellness, and the modern-day grass-roots revolution that’s happening within the field of women’s health.

In this episode I interview Adelaide Meadow to discuss how the biomechanics of our body can inform our labor experience, birth outcome, and overall experience in our female body.

This interview is a perfect segue following the sharing of my birth story in the last episode, as if offer insight and potential 'answers' as to why my (and many others) birth experience unfolded in the way that it did.

In this conversation we explore:

-What is biomechanics?

-How does biomechanics inform the birth process?

-Fetal positioning vs fetal movement, and why fetal positioning is not a pathology

-Body structure and how some women are physically more able to give birth

-What Adelaide says to women who 'did all the right things' but their birth didn't unfold and end in the way that they wanted.

Bio: Adelaide is a female physiology academic, movement teacher, bodyworker, and home birth attendant. She has been studying birth and female biomechanics for over ten years. She approaches women’s health, birth, movement, and women's culture from a physiological perspective, and believes in the genius of the body and the brilliance of women. Her professional contributions are at the intersection of birth, movement, and biomechanics, and how physiological birth requires physiological womanhood. She is a sought-after teacher, leader, and speaker on women's health and women's culture.

In this episode I dive into my 3.5 year preconception -> conception -> pregnancy -> post-partum prep journey, and how the concept of FORETHOUGHT was the under-current through all the phases.

In an age of instant gratification and diminished ability to focus, our innate cognitive ability of forethought is like a superpower.

Forethought is what I mean when I say 'setting ourselves up for success'.

It's thinking about and planning for the future (knowing we cannot control the future or how it unfolds) but knowing we CAN influence it with our actions TODAY.

Forethought for our pelvic well-being and the willingness to include it in our daily mental load is something I cannot recommend enough.

We can even set forth and do bulk-thinking/planning all at once for an extended period of time (ie. Planning out to-do's, actions, shopping lists, what needs to be prepped for a week/month/season period of time).

While doing this may feel like a chore in the process (so...much...thinking...), it actually provides more spaciousness and peace for ourselves in the future when we're undergoing a new phase of our journey.

This what makes when I say 'just do one thing a day on behalf of your cervix' to my clients do-able: using our precious life-commodity of TIME and FOCUS in thought to plan and prepare ourselves to be able to make it happen.

Where we don't actually need to think about it every day if we've already taken the time to think about and prep/plan for it in the past, and are able to benefit from it in the NOW.

Forethought is a superpower that we can tap into to set ourselves up for success no matter where we're at on the cervical healing journey or pelvic well-being journey.

This is when we can truly embody the phrase 'Your future self will thank you'.

Friends, this episode is like a balm for all those who carry a womb and who come from a womb.

I'm excited to introduce you to Jasmine Rose, a self-described Womb-Guardian who's work with women centers on walking them back home to their womb, their bloods, and the entire womb-continuum mystery of womanhood.

In this (highly poetic) interview, Jasmine and I explore:

-Why 'Womb-Guardian' is how Jasmine describes herself

-Jasmine's perspective on the womb, and the mystery and power it holds

-The Red Thread, Womb Mysteries and how they're not that mysterious

-How we can hold the pain-body of the womb alongside it's real beauty and power as the center of humanity

-The Voice of the Womb...and what that actually means

-What happened? How did we, as women become so disconnected?

-Hand's on work, the Rooted Method, and how does it differ than crystal wand work?

-What happens when women begin to touch their bodies in this way?

-How to approach this work for beginners.

With every journey there's a predictable arc of experience that goes along with it. After 7 years of doing this work, I can tell you, without a doubt, what phases you'll experience as you deepen your relationship with your deep pelvis and begin listening to the voice of your cervix.

In this episode I go over the phases and what to expect:

-The importance of the initial full-body 'YES' to healing your cervix

-How education and developing your literacy around what's happening within your body sets up a foundation for longevity, motivation, and devotion for your journey

-Why the first two phases are critical in setting you up for the bulk of the journey- the time when rubber meets the road and you're 'in it'

-How even once you get that CLEAR PAP result, the journey continues on

This episode gives you an idea of what to expect as you walk the cervical healing path and illuminates how each and every phase is important and necessary to cervical healing success.

I'm excited to share with you my conversation with Sena Maria, re-mineralizer, wellness explorer, and Root Cause Protocol practitioner and guide.

In this episode we dive into the world of becoming a deeply nourished woman through whole animal-based foods.

We dive into:

  • Metabolism, pro-metabolic living, and why it's imperative for women to know this
  • What is remineralization and why we need to focus on this for our body's ability to heal itself
  • How pro-metabolic living differs from other food and nutrition fad-diets, like Paleo, Keto, bullet-proof coffee, etc.
  • Sena's provocative take on vegetarianism and veganism, and what women are missing out on when they choose to not incorporate animal food products into their diet
  • Weight gain, exercise, and why becoming plumper and juicier may be exactly what our body is asking for
  • Beginning steps to begin a pro-metabolic lifestyle

Sena Maria is here to increase our capacity for resilience through micro-healing. As a Re-Mineralizer, Wellness Explorer, and Root Cause Protocol Consultant, she believes that minerals are the language of evolution and that the mineral realms are powerful allies to our collective returning to the simple, natural joy of being alive.

Sena’s career at Google and her subsequent studies of yoga, energy healing, shamanism, plant medicine, tools for building emotional capacity and integration, and the Root Cause Protocol have led her to sit with many questions about what humanity may need at this time to heal from trauma + toxins, strengthen our families and create mineral-rich generations to come.

Sena is passionate about supporting women, mamas + families to reclaim their mineral heritage. She shares thought-provoking content drops about plant medicine, minerals, and holistic healing on Instagram @sena__maria and offers 1:1 remineralization packages utilizing Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis and blood labs.

In this episode, I muse on all of the thoughts and feelings I had in receiving news that I've had 8 years of consecutive normal pap smears after having abnormal pap smears for 7 years.

I share my thoughts on what has helped me maintain clear paps, and I speak about continuing on with the cervical healing journey even after paps come back normal.

Enjoy!

All of that which we know was taught to us by someone, and in some circumstances, a single teacher changes the course of our life, forever.

This episode recounts the story of my greatest teacher: Phyllis Bala, Doctor of Indigenous Medicine.

I found out about 1 month ago that Phyllis died, and this episode is in honor of her and her instrumental impact on my life and work.

If it wasn't for Phyllis, that which is now known as Cervical Wellness wouldn't exist, and its time for my community to know about my walk with her.
