"THE DEPTH OF BIRTH" RADIO EPISODES

In 2005, I wrote and produced a radio show called "The Depth of Birth" on Charleston's local non-profit station OHM Radio. The episodes are fun, informative explorations into the intricacies of birth. UNICEF estimates that over 350,000 babies are born each day around the world, approximately one every 2.5 seconds. I discuss the physiology and psychology of birth, pregnancy, customs, practices, genital mutilation, umbilical cord, placenta, postpartum, labor, parenting…with interviews, book excerpts, songs, statistics, news clips, and insights that support each topic. I also wrote a song called "Mother May I," available on Spotify.
