Meet Me Downstairs is a podcast and forum that honours the woman in the mother and the woman within ourselves, mother or not. It's a place for us to talk about the female body. To educate ourselves on what it means to be a woman and break away from the way society and the patriarchy has traditionally raised us. We are entering a journey to deeply love who we are and feel empowered in the female skin we exist in.

We have made it to the end of another season at Meet Me Downstairs, and to close it out, we’ve got a super special guest…Chloe Fisher! Chloe is the host of her own podcast called Darling Shine, which she co-hosts with her best friend Ellidy Pullin, a podcast that I have listened to and love dearly. She shares with us today her journey through fertility, miscarriages, IVF, IUI’s, ultimately leading her to a place of peace as she takes a break on her route to motherhood. Her vulnerability and honesty is something that I find so wonderfully comforting. She is a ball of life, and a guest I’ll never forget. Chlo…thank you soooo much for sharing your story with us!

42. Kaitlin Klimmer: How the Sleep Training Industry has impacted our own intuition

On today’s episode we are getting into a controversial topic, toddler and infant sleep, and in particular the way that the sleep industry has impacted natural and intuitive parenting. Our guest Kaitlin Klimmer has made waves on social media talking all about sleep. She’s got a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, a Diploma in Forest School Education, a Baby-Led Sleep and Well Being Specialization, and most recently, a certification in Breastfeeding Education. Her goal and mission is to help educate parents trust their own nurturing intuition and parent from there. This was such an important conversation to have. As Kaitlin states in the episode, the judgements and issues we raise are with the sleep industry only, and not the parents who choose to implement certain methods. We all have to do what is best for our family, so as you listen to our episode today, embrace what feels right and leave what doesn’t. Love always! Website: Instagram:

39. Louise de Menthon: Unmedicated Vaginal Twin Birth Story

This incredible birth story is brought to us today by Louise de Menthon. She shares with us her experience of having an unmedicated, vaginal twin birth. She takes us down her very non-traditional path when it comes to giving birth to twins, and the amount of strength and bravery it required to stand in her power and have the birth that she dreamed of. This episode is an incredible reminder of the power that the medical system has on us women when we're in labor, and just how far we've removed ourselves from natural birth. It reminds us how important it is to educated ourselves on childbirth and the options available to us. On top of sharing her wonderfully positive and inspiring twin birth story, Louise and I have some empowering conversations surrounding birth itself. This episode is one I recommend listening to if having children (one, two or four), is in your future. It's thought provoking, and incredibly important.  Louise thank you for sharing this with us. It will be deeply treasured.  Louise Instagram: Loup Yoga:

36. Amy Taylor-Kabbaz: The Transition Into Motherhood ~ Matrescence

This episode is all about the transition from woman to mother. From maiden to matriarch. Ultimately being defined as Matrescence. It's a topic that is not widely known, yet it should be, and this conversation is in service of that. Those early years of motherhood are often experienced in silence and leave women feeling as though the things they're experiencing are meant to be dealt with alone, or that they aren't doing a good enough job, or experiencing perhaps things that are considered 'normal' and actually shouldn't be. That's what this episode is in service of. The mother, making space for her to feel understood as she moves through this epic transition.  Please enjoy this amazing and deeply comforting breakdown of Matrescence with our guest Amy Taylor-Kabbaz.  Amy is a Best-Selling Author, Speaker, Journalist, Matrescence Activist and Mama of three. She is the author of Mama Rising, the host of the ‘The Happy Mama Movement’ podcast and creator of the #1 iTunes meditations for children with more than 12 million downloads - ‘Bedtime Explorers’. In 2019, she launched her world first Matrescence Facilitator Training - Mama Rising - sharing her unique formula of coaching and support into mother’s transition through matrescence.  Website - Instagram - Facebook -
