Chosen - Birth + Faith through a Doula lens

Chosen - Birth + Faith through a Doula lens

By Katherine Newsom
For the first season of CHOSEN: Birth + Faith through a Doula lens, we will explore what it means to be chosen for childbearing, how this transforms our understanding and experience of pregnancy and labor, how knowing this invites us to share our stories, how knowing this affects our loss and grief, how knowing causes us to lean into our village, and how it all affects our understanding of birth in the Bible and today. In these 8 episodes, the famous lyric of Bethel Music, will ring true: “From my mother’s womb, you have CHOSEN me, Love has called my name.”
