Devy boo ,

I love all the information!

I just started listening this yesterday and I'm loving you ladies already! Haha
I’m becoming a postpartum doula and I’m having a hard time finding families. Listening to your episode where you talk about agencies, community memberships etc. was so helpful! Thank you for sharing all you know!

I love this!!

Love this so much! I’ve been searching for a good doula podcast and this is it! I’m a 17 year old and currently taking courses to become a birth and postpartum doula! So insightful!! Thank you! Please do more episodes!
Could you do an episode on what to do when you and your client don’t get along or aren’t a good match?

Just what I was looking for

I listen to a number of doula/midwifery podcasts, but they were missing something so I keep searching. I found this podcast last week and have now listened to the entire first season in the last few days.
As a newer doula this podcast is exactly what I was looking for. What feels like a friendly chat over coffee about doula work, with tangible tips and information I can put into use right away. Including help with hands on clients, but also business considerations I haven't thought of yet.
Keep it up, ladies!
