SFSL Podcast Episode 04: What's a Doula?
For this episode I had the pleasure of interviewing Erica Chidi Cohen who is a doula, a private chef and founder of The Mama Circle. With a doctor and a nurse for parents, the idea of helping others with their health came second nature to her. Erica has a warm and comforting spirit that makes her well-suited to aid and welcome new life into the world. Erica provides services that moms dream of from lactation counseling to prenatal and postpartum classes to guidance on nutrition. Now I can't imagine any mom to-be or current mama not working with her. Enjoy the show!
