Fantastic Interviewer

The Clearbirth podcast with Annette gets into the Niche topic of Doulas and birth. Annette’s very good at making her guests feel comfortable and asks the questions that spark some interesting conversations on what it’s like being a Doula and the birth process. You will learn a lot from this podcast on the subject. Annette proves herself as an expert in her field with each amazing episode!

Great information and empowering to parents

This podcast is a welcome addition to an often overlooked field. Having a doula can be one of the best things for an expectant mother, and as such, it can also be one of the best things for an expectant dad! Annette is very knowledgeable and very experienced in all things birth-related, as well as pregancy and post-partum care.
