In this episode I interview Evidence Based Birth operations director and chief of staff Victoria Wilson. She shares candidly about her physically, emotionally, and mentally challenging birth experiences, as well as her journey to become a doula.
Victoria is a wife and mom to three spunky girls, and is a DONA International certified birth doula. She operates her own practice, Mother Well Doula Service in Kentucky, and has also advocated for the licensure of certified professional midwives in the state. Lately she has been focused on forming positive relationships, both personally and professionally, as a way to improve birth outcomes.
Listen as Victoria shares intimate details of her birth experiences, and gets very real in describing the emotions she processed along the way. We also discuss the biggest struggles for doulas – including trauma and burnout. This is a deep discussion on aspects of the birth world that are not often discussed.
