Best of TBAB Episode 24: Role of the Doula with Bebo Mia

Today, we are talking with Bianca and Natasha, co-founders of bebo mia which offers training, mentorship, and community for your pregnancy, birth, and parenting biz!

Together, we discuss everything related to doulas: from social justice work around reproductive health, to what a doula brings with them for during a birth, and why you may want to have a fertility doula and even a postpartum doula!

We would love to hear from you!
