    So you want to be a doula Pt. 1 - Balancing Birthwork and Family

    So you want to be a doula Pt. 1 - Balancing Birthwork and Family

    We may be a little biased, but doula work is critical to changing the way people experience birth and new parenthood. Aspiring doulas reach out to us often asking how to get started and the answer is........it depends! In this episode of a 3 part series, Eleanor and Alex discuss things to consider before you make the leap into birthwork. There is so much more to this work than holding babies and squeezing hips!

    Next episode we'll cover mental health as it pertains to birthwork so please send us any questions you may have to inthefamilywaypodcast@gmail.com
