I love that you honor, acknowledge and explore the birth of mothers.💜
So helpful as I start my new career
Loving working my way through Julia’s podcasts. I’m about to start her doula training and start my new career as a post partum doula. The interviews with other doulas are of particular value as it is highlighting the many ways this work can be done
An excellent overview of the importance of preparing for the postnatal period not just the birth!
