To celebrate the International Day of the Midwife (May 5th), we spoke to midwives Danielle Laxdal and Tracey Novoselnik via speakerphone while they were on the road to a conference.
Let’s return to thinking about relationship with food and our bodies. Our bodies want us to communicate and listen. When we’re hungry, our body wants to be fed. Our body wants to trust that we’ll nourish it regularly with food in order to care for it. At other times, we may not feel hungry and our bodies want to enjoy food just for fun or just for comfort. Paying attention to our body’s cues for food is part of having that healthy relationship.
