Zoe and Danae Candidly Debrief



This week’s episode is very different, we’ve never really done anything like this on The Deep before. Danae, my birth doula who you heard from last week, came to see me about four months after Ever’s birth. We hadn’t seen each other since and we wanted to debrief together. The conversation was so good that I just had to stop her, grab a microphone and put it between us to start recording before we continued the chat. You may notice that the audio is a bit different because we only used the one mic, but it's just a conversation not an interview and I thought it was worth sharing, so enjoy!
You can find out more information and contacts details for Danae on her website www.danaebirthdoula.com.au and the birth documentary she mentioned is Birth Time www.birthtime.world
