Susun Weed answers 90 minutes of herbal health questions followed by a 30 minute interview with Carrie Kenner. Carrie has been helping people have babies since 1980. Her role as mother and grandmother are the most important teachers in her life. But the biggest impact she has on the world is as a birth doula trainer. Carrie has trained over 2000 doulas since 2004, and the ripples of love and support that all those doulas provide in the world help support her mission of "a more peaceful world by promoting healthy birth”. Carrie’s approach to doula training, urban farming, parenting and life is to do what you love, share your passion, and make all your actions lead to racial and social justice.
