Natalie Nevares, founder of Mommywise, has been featured in the Wall Street Journal and on CBS This Morning for her work as one of the top Baby Sleep Training experts.  I think of Nevares as a "Baby Whisperer," helping parents discover the secret to sweet dreams -- for all.  Joining the conversation is Margaret Siebers who, at the time we recorded this conversation, the mother of two young girls -- who now have a baby brother. Whether you are the parent of a baby and desperate for more sleep, or a grandparent or auntie worried about the sleepless nights young parents in your family are struggling through, this episode is for you.  




COVID-19 Lessons Learned

May 3, 2021

When it comes to loss of life from COVID-19, Singapore has one of the world's lowest case fatality rates.  With 60,000+ cases and around 30 deaths, there is much to be learned from the island nation's approach to the pandemic that is currently raging out of control in India and Brazil and mutating globally into even more dangerous variants. Professor Ivy Ng, a physician, researcher and CEO of her country's largest healthcare provider, shares Singapore's lessons learned and why the world should be preparing for the "new normal" of the future. 

Transgender Girls Playing Sports: What's All the Fuss About?

April 27, 2021

So far in 2021, over 100 anti-trans bills in 33 states are under consideration in U.S. state legislatures. That's the highest number in any year since we started counting. Many of those bills target transgender athletes, with the goal of making it illegal for trans students to play on teams that correspond with their identity. Advocates argue that trans students threaten Title IX gains for girls sports. Opponents argue the growing anti-trans movement is about misinformation, misunderstanding and fear. So what are the facts? Donna Lopiano and Nancy Hogshead-Makar, both world class athletes and internationally respected advocates for sports gender equity, answer our questions. Additional resources they recommend include: Women Sports Policy Working GroupChampion Women, and Title IX Schools.
