Transformed podcast

FEATURED GUEST: Nkem Ndefo, Lumos Transforms and the Resilience Toolkit

In this podcast episode, Nkem reflects on transformation, pregnancy, birth, parenting, stress, epigenetics, and self-care. With an emphasis on stress and stress relief, we discuss ways to prepare for a big life change, even when it’s too fast. Even when there’s trauma involved.

One of the most powerful things we can do as parents is to “settle” our own stress. To be as calm as possible in the moment at hand.“- Nkem Ndefo
