117: Dispelling Myths About the Postpartum Phase of Motherhood with Eyla Cuenca

WELCOME BACK TO THE PURE NURTURE PODCAST! We are birthing Season Four with new guests to help you reclaim your pursuit of pregnancy, orgasmic birth, and parenting with more ease.

Eyla Cuenca is our first guest after a nine month hiatus. She is a holistic birth guide, Childbirth Educator, Lactation Counselor, health freedom advocate, and mother. She holds a BA in Anthropology from Bennington College, and trained under Robert A. Bradley, MD where she became specialized as a Birth Educator. Her years of work as a Guardian Ad Litem for the 11th Judicial Circuit and attending births as a Doula in both hospital and home settings brought her into human rights and advocacy work. She stands behind the idea that it is everyone’s right to have access to empowering education from conception to parenting. Her practice is dedicated to offering guidance that supports women and men in the process that is a return to their deepest knowing about birth, individual sovereignty, and the body’s innate intelligence.

She offers 1-1 guidance sessions to assist women and couples at any point in their journey, from conscious conception to processing births years later. She also offers her signature childbirth education program, Uncovering Birth, as well as Doula training, and Placentophagy training (how to prepare the placenta for consumption).
