The Hidden World of Women - Living through a Pandemic E20

June 14, 2021

Western Australia seems to have been bypassed by the Covid-19 pandemic (touch wood). With relatively little disruption and very few cases it is hard to comprehend what it has been like to live through in other parts of the world. In this episode Emma chats with Charlotte a community services manager in Nottingham, UK to hear what it has been like over there being in lockdown for the better part of 15 months! Again this is a conversation, unscripted, no set questions, just a chat finding out first hand what Charlotte’s personal experience was like.

 

Thanks Charlotte for joining me!

The Hidden World of Women - What even is a Doula? E19

The Hidden World of Women - What even is a Doula? E19

May 31, 2021

There has recently been attention on the restrictions that face birthing mothers. With only 1 support person in the room mothers are having to choose between having their partner in the room or having their doula there. This led to much discussion around the role of a doula and ‘what even is a doula anyway? And why is it a big deal if they can’t go in for a birth?’ Good questions! I sat down with Kate from Bright Mums to answer these questions and talk about all things doula and discuss ways we can support new parents during birth and after the birth of their child. Of course, we may have gone off on a tangent or 12 as we explored some of the challenges and celebrations that come with bringing a new life into the world and the additional challenges that come with birthing in a pandemic era!

Thanks Kate for joining me and if anyone would like more information you can find Kate at https://brightmums.com.au/

If parenting is not what you were expecting we have workshops specifically tailored to that at https://hiddenworldofyou.com.au/

 

If you or someone you know here in Western Australia is due to give birth or has recently given birth WHWS has a fantastic event coming up ‘The elephant in the room’ https://drpac.sales.ticketsearch.com/sales/salesevent/11113
