Highly recommend for anyone preparing for birth!

Åsa is passionate about highlighting positive birth stories. There is so much power in sharing positive experiences since our culture tends to focus on perpetuating negativity and fear. I recommend this podcast to all my birth doula clients. If you’re feeling anxious about birth, positive stories will help empower you with confidence. Thank you Åsa for all you’re doing to change birth culture into something more positive and joyous!
