In This Episode:
“I honestly think everyone should be a certified birth and death doula. There’s a space for that supportive role, as our society can promote disconnection – through devices or modern isolation.” – Lori Cosgrove
“I feel like there’s a space for a doula in a divorce. I feel like there’s a space for a doula in a new relationship. I feel like there’s a space for a doula in a really busy home.” – Lori Cosgrove
