Have you ever found yourself drowning in grief, or wondering how to wrestle with the strangeness of the human experience as heartbreaking news continues to unfold in the world?

I couldn’t think of a better person to interview than my own doula, who helped me welcome my first baby into the world, and has seen, experienced and participated in countless life and death moments during her own lifetime. 

Her perspective on grief and the rub of gratitude that’s found in the midst of deep grief is such an inspiration.

Listen in if you’re ready for her inspiring, beautiful perspective.
