[This is a previously released episode. Enjoy!]

The Zika virus caused quite the stir in the news a couple years ago.  It made few people feel sick…but its effects on developing fetuses was horrifying, causing multiple, profound birth defects.  It has receded from the news since then, but it’s effects are still being felt, especially in warmer  climates…including Corbin’s current home, Texas.  So what are the effects of Zika?  How is it prevented? Are there treatments available for its effects? And what do doctors do to support those affected?

Natural Cycles App – with Dr. Jillian Claire (Rebirthed)



Because Katee and Corbin’s schedules are challenging, The Vagibonds are switching to an every-two-weeks schedule.  I know, it sucks, but it’s what they must do.  In the meantime, enjoy this rebirthed episode. –Dave

This week the Vagibonds are joined by Dr. Jillian Claire to discuss the FDA’s recent approval of the app Natural Cycles for use as birth control. We recommend listening to our episode on fertility awareness because we reference it… a lot.

ACES and Toxic Stress: How trauma can change our brains (Rebirthed)



[Katee and Corbin are, as always, being amazing at their residencies this week.  But since being a doctor often means sacrificing other bits of life, take in this rebirthed episode until next week.  –Dave]

If you have been following the news, you likely have seen that a recent Trump administration policy has forced children crossing the border with their parents without proper documentation to be stripped away from their parents and held in prison-like detention centers. This week Katee, Corbin, and Dave talk  about the research behind how “Adverse Childhood Experiences” (ACEs) affect brain development and life long health.From the backround to the pathology and finally its implications.

[Katee and Corbin are beavering away at their residencies this week, so enjoy this rebirthed episode.  –Dave]

Alison Oliver is a sexuality educator at the university level, and also for the Unitarian Universalist Society’s sex ed program known as Our Whole Lives.  Unlike what most of us get in schools, public or private, OWL is comprehensive.  Even the most detailed conversation with one’s parents can’t hope to cover everything OWL does in its 25 weeks.  Katee, Corbin, and Dave visit with Alison to get a feel for just what comprehensive means, and how young people can get more comfortable with sexuality as something that exists for all people, throughout their entire existence, from cradle to grave.

Postpartum contraception



In this previously aired classic, we discuss why women should be thinking about birth control while they’re pregnant, what kinds of birth control we can use postpartum, and the methods and timing of those options. Also, our group text kept autocorrrecting postpartum to post-party and we kind of like that.
