Joi of Motherhood with Joi Barnett
Do you know the difference between an OB/GYN, midwife, and doula? This weekend we chat with student midwife Joi Barnett to discuss midwifery, motherhood, and breastfeeding. In this episode, she unpacks several reasons expectant mothers are conditioned to choose certain care providers and don’t readily consider breastfeeding. Most importantly, we talked about the benefits of sex during pregnancy and negotiating lovemaking while breastfeeding.
