Interview with Karen Brody

Karen Brody and I had a chance to catch up Monday in Santa Fe. Karen is the founder of BOLD, a global movement to make maternity care mother-friendly. She is also the playwright of BIRTH, the critically-acclaimed play about childbirth in the US.

Karen was in Albuquerque for a production of BIRTH, and to train birth workers in her FEAR to FREEDOM program, a ground-breaking new childbirth education method.

In addition to her online FEAR to FREEDOM Birth Facilitator Training Program for birth workers, Karen is a passionate proponent of mothers getting more sleep and teaches Nap Quest Tele-Classes and an upcoming E-course.

Karen and I both look at maternity care through the lens of social activism and see childbirth as a human rights issue.

Here’s a short clip of our conversation.
