  1. I’m hoping to get my doula cert. as after I finish High school, and I would love to become a midwife one day. Great podcast Kristen! Thank you

  2. It’s funny that you mention seeing orange a lot. During my last pregnancy, every time I saw an orange car, I would get really emotionally and angry. It was really bizarre, and I’d never experienced anything like that. The feeling faded postpartum.
