All the info you didn’t know you needed

I’ve been listening to the Birth Boot Camp Podcast for years now, and it really inspired me to pursue earthwork as a career. I was recommended the podcast during both of my pregnancies by my own Doula, and it helped me prepare so much for my birth experience after the birth of my second daughter, I decided to become a certified Doula with birth Boot Camp! I use this podcast, not only as a tool for my own continued learning, but a tool for all of my clients to learn about the inside world of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. The BBC team takes great care to ensure that their podcasts are evidence based, inclusive, and engaging. Thank you so much for the great information!
