Why a Doula is a Must for Birthing Abroad

A while ago I was honoured to be asked to write a guest blog post for the amazing Knocked Up Abroad. Whilst this post is not podcast related, I thought it was about time that I featured it here.

I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Why a Doula is a Must for International Births

Having moved from the UK to The Netherlands age 22 with no job, nowhere to live, and a partner who’d never even visited the place, I figured that moving to Sweden thirteen years later would be easy.

Sure, I didn’t speak much of the language, but I could understand some, and yes, I’d miss my amazing friends A LOT, but I figured I’d meet other mums at the playground and make friends that way.
