The Virtual Midwife

By The Virtual Midwife

A podcast for the thinking woman, not afraid to question the current policy based maternity system. Hosted by the Virtual Midwife, Karen Wilmot who left hospital work to unlearn everything she knew and relearn it in a way that remains true to her calling to be "with women". In this podcast she shares lessons from the labor room, women's wisdom, interviews with thought leaders and discussions with change makers, along with transformational lessons and meditations for pregnancy and birth.
