Dear women - we need a moment of real talk. I’ve recently started shopping around for cars. My own 14-year-old vehicle, fondly known as Babcia (Polish for Grandma), may be on her last wheels. Rather than wait for the inevitable and fly into a panic when she dies, I decided to be proactive and begin to research and test drive cars. I’ve read tons of reviews, read Consumer Reports Car Buying Guide (Used and New Car edition of Summer 2017), sat in over 10 vehicles, and driven about 7 of those 10. All this and I finally feel like I’ve identified a make and model I like.
I gotta be honest here for a minute… This post isn’t just written for you readers. That’s right, I got selfish. As a women’s health therapist I work with pregnant clients all the time and the first time I heard of doulas I had absolutely no idea what that meant. So when I had the opportunity to meet a doula and learn about them, I jumped at the chance! Emily Potter Wannenburg and I were introduced through a mutual friend who knew we would nerd out and bond over our love of helping women. For this interview, Emily and I grabbed lunch to discuss all things Doula.
