She tells us about the experience of being a virtual doula in the times of coronavirus. She’s been teaching her methods online during these times. She goes through what a doula is and how a doula can be a helpful third party in the birth to feel supported and empowered in the process. The rules of the hospitals have changed during the pandemic. So it’s important that expecting mothers are prepared for the new procedures of the hospital.
It’s important to use this time at home to listen to what your need to work on yourself. Find a self care routine that will allow you to live a happier life. What can you cut out that is adding unnecessary stress in your day to day. Let’s learn how to not go back to a stressful lifestyle most of us led pre-quarantine. They discuss the Black Lives Matter protest that have come about in quarantine and how we can carry this activism into our daily lives. There’s also a huge problem with racial discrimination in the medical field that needs to be addressed. Dr. Donnica and Latham talk about how we need to create a new pathway for people to get medical help.
