Unschooled Homebirth
77. Sacred Songs & the Magic of Music for Birth
Show Notes

My dear friend Laura Otter of Birthing Mamas will be sharing stories of her forthcoming album, Birth and Beyond: Sacred Songs for Mother and Baby, she will share how this album came to be, how the songs came to her, how they are impacting the families she works with, her own birth stories and how they were the portal to the music, and how music is such an important tool for birth.

If you are listening to this episode before April 25th, 2023, Laura and her team have a Kickstarter to help fund the costs of producing the album. After costs are covered, all additional profits will be donated to special causes that raise money to improve access to midwifery care and family health in low resourced areas. If you believe in midwifery care and the magic of rhythms, rituals, and keeping traditions alive in birth, this is a project you won't regret supporting.
