In this long-awaited episode, Rachel and Katie get into the questions you've all been asking us; how to navigate, cope, and work within the system. In this 1st part, we look at spheres of influence, the gifts we can offer, and our relationships with women. We've got to say, that despite the title, this was probably one of the funniest episodes we have ever recorded! So, enjoy the fun along the way, and treat yourself to a bit of self-care by listening in!

This is so spot on!!! Thank you! I love 💕 Rachel’s analogy: midwives are there to inform the woman that she might fall of a cliff. Midwives must neither take the decision away from the woman nor must they jump off the cliff with the woman. But midwives must be there to help put her back together when the woman has fallen off the cliff. - Also thank you so much for explaining the importance of wording. It’s so important to explain the pro and cons and then end with: I’ll support you whatever decision you make. - oh, I LOVED 🥰 that part...
