A New Information Coordinator for Birth Workers

Do you work with families during pregnancy, birth, or postpartum? I am a new Information Coordinator for our group!

A while ago I read an article in Present Time by a doula* about how she was sharing RC with local doulas and lactation consultants. I found it inspiring and thought it would be great to increase the communication between all of us—midwives, doctors, nurses, doulas, lactation consultants, social workers, and others—who work with families during the months before and after birth as well as during the births.

As Information Coordinator, I will collect people’s thoughts and experiences. Everyone who sends something to me will later receive a compilation of all the communications.

I thought we could start by getting to know each other—who we are, where we work, and what we do with families. If you want to say what you love about your work, and what is difficult about it, please do. How do you use RC for yourself and while working?

You can send something brief or write something longer. I would love to hear from all of us! Please write to me about yourself and your work.
