Elizabeth, Jade and Carly aka "The Babes" start this episode out by catching each other up on their week's events. Carly talks about her date night with Evan and tells us about how dating has changed since becoming a mom. Jade confesses to breastfeeding on a ride at Disney World and getting stuck when it broke down.  Liz shares her excitement about her client who had a successful VBAC this week.
The Babes then bring on special guest, Johanna Kandel, to educate them on why eating disorders are on the rise for women in their forties.  Johanna founded the nonprofit organization, the Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness, which provides outreach, education, and intervention.  She worked hard to get Barack Obama to sign a piece of legislature to educate health providers on eating disorders.  Johanna smashes the stigma that eating disorders are a choice.  They are a serious biologically-influenced mental illness.  She shares her story of fear of infertility and how her unexpected pregnancy brought everything in her life full circle. The Babes then have Erin Childs, a mother of four boys, share her journey of struggling with an eating disorder.  She opens up about how it has effected her as a wife and mother and how she now strives to support others who are going through it. 4 out 10 Americans have either suffered or have known someone who has suffered from an eating disorder.  Listen to this episode to learn all about how to help those who are suffering.
