Doulas rock

As a Doula it has been a joy to listen to these podcasts, Leila has an informal style and delivery that immediately puts her interviews at ease and her breadth of knowledge around the subjects discussed is second to none. A must for anyone considering becoming a Doula or a pregnant mother thinking of using one for her birth

BirthBright ,

Absolutely brilliant

I’m a doula and these podcasts are absolutely brilliant! Each one has a new guest bringing a fresh subject and perspective on pregnancy, birth and supporting through the postnatal time. Leila Baker hosts and expertly gets to the heart of each topic.
