Why this podcast?
I love, love, love all the beautiful and powerful photos that I see on social media from the rockstar birth mamas.
I also believe, so strongly, that whatever kind of birth you want it is incredibly important to be an active participant in that birth.
Shalome Stone, the host of Rockstar Birth Radio, says that when she was pregnant with her first baby she wanted a natural, drug-free labour but did precisely zero preparation and simply turned up at the hospital in labour asking “So, what do I do next?”
Emily Wills is a doula based in Stockholm. She believes that birth can be a beautiful and empowering experience and started this blog as a way of sharing some really great podcasts. She is also a mother of three and an enthusiastic runner.
