Episode 11: Talks With Antonia & Sean – Clients Extraordinaire!

You’ll need to find time to tune in to this episode for just 37 minutes – it’s a great one! We chat about Antonia being a Midwife, being a Surrogate and the home birth of Una in the middle of a pandemic!

Having both of them on the show giving their unique perspective on their birth story, having it documented and what the images mean to them, was golden. I ask all the questions you’d be curious about.
