You are missing out if you don’t listen to this podcast!

I found this podcast very grounding, affirming and guiding all at the same time. So many great insights into Birth work and not just Midwifery. How to hold space and how to just be. I’ve listened to this first episode twice and keep coming back to it! Excited for upcoming episodes!
