Affirmed my choice to become a doula!!!

Wow. I am so grateful to this podcast. This really gave me the *COURAGE* to commit to investing in a doula certification training, and gave me the dose of reality that I needed to hear in order to imagine myself doing birth work. I’ve listened to every single episode, and although I was drawn to listening to most of the topics, I even learned something amazing from the episodes I was not all that jazzed about initially… In other words, I never felt disappointed by a single guest because every guest had at least 1 amazing insight to offer, if not many. Thank you, Nathalie, for doing this amazing work for the birth community at large. And thank you to all the guests that stepped up to share their experiences as a birth workers! I’ve been happily awaiting more episodes since Nov ‘16, yet I understand Life Happens with a newborn ;) (This community of all communities should understand that!) PS. I’m interested in the Accountability Tribe and looking forward to inquiring further about it after I attend my first birth and feel a bit more engaged in my path as a doula.

Inspiring Podcast

I am really glad I found this podcast, because I am a new doula so I have been learning so much from all the episodes and guests.

I even got my calling to become a midwife while listening to Juli Tilsner's and Aubre Tompkins' episodes back-to-back coincidentally during my commute home several weeks ago. Since then, I started looking into the Cornerstone Midwifery Training program and accredited midwifery schools to start my journey. Thank you inspiring birth workers like myself and keep up the great work, Nathalie!
