Must listen for birth workers and anyone expecting a baby

The episode death, blame, grief and healing offers such rare wisdom on the subject of death for anyone involved in supporting women in pregnancy and birth. Such a privilege to be taught by Margo; her compassion and gifts as a midwife really shine in this episode.
