Stefanie’s Latest Podcast Interviews
We’ll often get the question from potential students “where can I get a deeper understanding of doula and birth work?” While reading about birth work is a great way to familiarize yourself with the day to day life of a doula, there is still nothing like a long form interview. Over the past few months our founder, Stefanie Antunes, has had the opportunity to sit down for a number of podcast interviews. Topics have ranged from her own birth experiences, to the future of doula work, and everything in between.
We’re going to keep this post regularly updated with new podcast episodes as they become available.
Moony Birth Stories
Stefanie Antunes- Doula, Educator, Three Birth Stories
Stefanie Antunes from Toronto, ON joins me on this episode of Moony Birth Stories to share her three birth stories. When she unexpectedly got pregnant with her first baby, she didn’t know much about birth and felt generally quite fearless and confident. The pregnancy went well and though her birth would have been considered straight-forward from a medical perspective, there were many things about it that ended up leaving a bad taste in her mouth. It was that experience that ultimately ignited her passion for birth support and started her down a new path. Stefanie goes on to share her second and third birth stories and talks about how she shifted the power back into her possession. She also shares helpful and encouraging wisdom she’s gained in over 20 years of birth work.
