On today’s podcast episode, we will be talking with postpartum doula, Ali Buchanan, about the importance of postpartum doula care. Ali (she/her), is a certified postpartum doula with Cornerstone Doula Trainings, and currently trained as a full spectrum doula with Doula Trainings International (DTI). As a postpartum doula, Ali works with parents and families to transition into their new roles before and after birth. Ali is also my executive assistant here at Evidence Based Birth® where she helps us provide current research and best practices by helping us to fulfill our mission to empower families across the globe.
**Content Warning: We will talk about postpartum depression.**
We talk about Ali’s birthing story and her experience with postpartum depression. We also talk about how life-changing experiences led Ali to pursue her career as a postpartum doula.
