“In the Ladies’ Room with Dr. Donnica” is the only public ladies' room you can enter any time without ever waiting on line! Hosted by women’s health expert and media commentator Donnica Moore MD, the podcast will feature real conversations, with real women, about really intimate issues. They may be embarrassing, sad or funny, but they will always be
interesting & informative. You know, like the best conversations you've ever had in ladies' rooms with your best friends. . .or total strangers. . .and a physician!

With a wide variety of guests with “been there, done that” expertise, Dr. Donnica discusses the health and wellness topics women often talk with her about in the ladies’ room. . . after speaking engagements, media
briefings, at events, or just because they happen to be chatting anonymously while waiting on line or over the sink. Generally, these topics tend to be things that are embarrassing; issues Dr. Donnica calls “the Toilet Talk topics” (anything related to bowel or bladder issues, gas, bodily functions, periods, discharges, etc.); questions related to sex and intimacy; subjects women are uncomfortable discussing in public or in “mixed company”; challenges women are struggling with; or anything top of mind or in the news. In each topic, we add our Top Tips about that topic as well as a call to action.

My next guest, Martha Buttenheim, is the first guest I’ve had who was a college classmate! Over the years I heard she had married her college sweetheart and had children, but I didn’t see her in person again until our 25th college reunion, when she introduced me to her partner, who is also a woman. In addition to Martha, I also knew four other women in my age group who were previously married to men & now divorced, but in happily committed relationships with women.  We talked to psychologist Dr. Drema Dial about figuring out she was a lesbian after her own divorce briefly in episode 29 about the psychosocial causes of migraine, but I thought this topic was worth a much deeper dive, especially after our interview with Vivian Fransen in episode 56 about her book, “The Straight Spouse”. 

Martha is the owner of Guidelight Coaching, and works as an executive coach, helping women and entrepreneurs achieve their goals, perform at their peak, and manage work/life balance with minimal stress, striving, and sacrifice.
