I had the pleasure of talking with six International Doulas, Birth workers and Birth Activists who are currently writing a book (with me) "Birthing With Heart - The Birth of A Mother". They share wisdom for birthing and being a new mother during this time of Covid and Social Isolation as well as an initiative to support new mothers currently in lockdown in the UAE. So much love here. Love for yourself, for each other and especially for new mothers and their little ones. Enjoy
