On episode 15 of Working Birth, doula & RN Yamel Belen talks about giving moms power- sometimes by simply being present and there for them- emotionally, physically, and otherwise. Research has shown that a doula’s presence at a birth results in shorter labors, with less complications, and women are less likely to have negative feelings about birth. Doula power!!
On midwife Jessica Willoughby’s episode of Working Birth, we talk about the transformative power of c-sections. She shares about a recent client who felt so empowered by her c-section experience. Though some may discount them, caesarean sections can be powerful healing birth experiences too! So awesome.

Simple and wonderful. I wish more moms knew that lactation consultants and IBCLCs exist and that there is skilled support & help available for them on their breastfeeding journeys, whatever their goals may be!
