Author, Amy Wright Glenn, joins CAPPA Radio to discuss her book, "Birth, Breath, and Death: Meditations on Motherhood, Chaplaincy, and Life as a Doula." She shares her wisdom on how to support a woman on the "hero's journey" as a labor doula and her calling to support the dying and their families as a chaplain.  She shares insight about being a labor doula before having her own baby and how she communicates her role to clients.  We also discuss extended breastfeeding, the importance of self care, and following your intuition.  Amy Wright Glenn earned her MA in Religion and Education from Teachers College, Columbia University.
