She tells us the ONE thing you can try to instantly feel better. We agree.
Best advice ever: mother yourself.
She explains the true role of a doula – she’s like a producer for your birth – mapping out the run of show and makes sure shit gets done.
Her birth story is a good one – her ancestors showed up to help her push.
Latham is from Oakland, which is called Oakland because of all the Oak trees. (Were we the only ones who didn’t know that?) Oh, and she can HEAR plants and their vibrations.
…and because of the Oak trees in Brooklyn, Zoe is a mouth breather throughout the entire episode. Damn you, allergies!
As a culture we’re doing a crap job at supporting postpartum women. Understanding and supporting maternal mental health is critical.
