One experience we all share is that we’ve all been born. In this series, you’ll listen to a physical therapist who’s specialized in childbirth education and labor support since 1968. Her name’s Penny Simkin and KBCS’s Yuko Kodama interviewed her in this five-part series.

Part 1 – How giving birth can deeply affect a woman’s identity

Part 2 – We find out the role of the doula in a childbirth

Part 3 – Find out about the challenges that some women face in labor and after the birth, and the resources in our community that can help

Part 4 – Update on the latest approach toward Cesarean procedures in the obstetrics field

Part 5 – Discover the impact that music has on the expectant family at childbirth
