[REBROADCAST] All About Doulas With Keisha Graham

I'm spending time with family this week for Thanksgiving, so this week's episode is a rebroadcast of one of my favorite episodes. Enjoy!

Do you know what a doula is, what they do, and how they can help you during your pregnancy & labor? There are a lot of misconceptions out there about doulas, so I thought it would be helpful to chat to a doula and get an inside look at their work and all the things they do for pregnant women.

Our guest for this episode is Keisha Graham, who has been a doula for almost a decade and is also the community manager in the All About Pregnancy and Birth Facebook Group!

Keisha and I talk about what doulas do, how to choose them, and how doulas can support you and your partner during labor. She also talks about why she thinks everyone deserves a doula and why you should get one as early in your pregnancy as possible.

In this Episode, You’ll Learn About:

  • What a doula is, what they do, and how they can help you in all stages of your pregnancy
  • Where to find a doula no matter where you are 
  • Three questions you should ask before hiring a doula 
  • Why it's a great idea to hire a doula as early in your pregnancy as possible
  • How a doula can work well with your partner during the birth
  • Common misconceptions about doulas and what they do
  • What to consider when coming up with your budget for a doula 
  • How Keisha uses her skills to help people of color, and especially black women, get the treatment they deserve in the hospital system
  • Keisha's top advice to any pregnant woman
