Let’s doula it!

Let’s doula it!

By Anne Glover Motherdoula HypnoBirthing teacher in Northern Ireland
This Let's Doula It podcast is brought to you by Anne Glover, aka MotherDoula, who has been working as a birth and postnatal doula in Northern Ireland since 2015.
The podcast is for anyone interested in anything to do with birth!
Throughout the podcast I chat to various doulas, midwives, mothers, parents and other professionals working in the birth world. We are all striving to raise awareness of resources and support available in NI
There's also some relaxation episodes thrown in for good measure!
My hope is that you enjoy this podcast and my dream is that we can all make a little difference
