In this episode of The Megaphone, Isabel talks about “Fruits of Philosophy: The Private Companion of Young Married People, by a Physician" by Dr. Charles Knowlton.

His work is one of the first pieces known that acknowledge the fact that people can have sex and not suffer the unwanted consequence of pregnancy. According to Google books, "this work has been selected by scholars as being culturally important and is part of the knowledge base of civilization as we know it."

Temple Aura, a 38-year-old, happily Childfree, Medical Laboratory Scientist, is the newest moderator of the infamous Facebook page, 'I Regret Having Children'.

 

I found her through her very interesting work of facilitating and sharing the vents of distressed, overwhelmed, depressed, anxious, and angry parents. She says providing spaces for people to honestly share unflattering and unsavory first-person perspectives of parenting is necessary and helps support the Childfree community in being confident that their decisions are not due to brokenness or being crazy.

 

Join us as we discuss her experience as a moderator on this FB page of regretful parents. She also shares her first-hand experience of having had two abortions.

Beatriz is a proud, born, and raised Honduran. In 2013 along with her husband and their quirky, “middle-aged” Shitzhu, they moved to Dallas, Texas, and made it their home.

 

She’s a Nutrition Consultant and Coach, devoted to her education and personal development. A PCOS awareness supporter and “warrior” herself, passionate about coaching on blood sugar stability and stress management as foundations of health and hormone balance, insulin resistance, and prediabetes. She loves helping women improve their self-awareness and become masters or “hackers” of their own bodies, using food and lifestyle!

 

She ventured at giving motherhood a shot, some years ago, and found herself trapped in a web of miscarriages, frustration, and anger. She knew that was it, so she picked herself up, and together, they moved on to healing and creating a unique childfree life to love.

 

Find her on Instagram at @wavesandblueskies / @beazavalacoach, with links to her 1:1 coaching, and an exciting upcoming course for women: RESILIENT Nutrition, where she has poured her love, energy, and dedication in creating an intimate, group program for women ready to prioritize themselves and transform their nutrition habits and health.
