Until next time, my dearest doula community, have a wonderful day and remember Nickie’s quote from renowned french Obstetrician and childbirth specialist Michel Odent, “I have been taught where women are free, we will learn how they give birth best. They will show us. They will trust us. Look at them and listen closely”.
