  • Fear Free Childbirth Podcast with Alexia Leachman –> I particularly enjoyed the episodes about hypnobirthing (“Preparing your mindset for birth”) and “Hospital or home birth interview with Sonia Killik” (Note: this one is very biased toward home birth).
  • toLabor Doula Podcast –> The interview with a labour and delivery nurse episode #97 is very interesting; great conversation from both sides (hospital nurse and doula).
