I’m really excited to be able to share the video from my TEDx DePaul University talk from April.
It’s about three lessons I’ve learned from my work as a doula.
This was a such an amazing opportunity, and such an incredible challenge for me. I had to think about how to talk about my work, in this field that is so marginal in many ways, in a way that would reach people everywhere.
I spent a lot of time thinking about how to talk about this work without making assumptions about people’s knowledge, and what makes doula work universal. In the end, I talked about empathy and how it connects to our work for social justice.
I hope you’ll take the time to watch it. Thanks to the TEDx DePaul U crew who made this happen, an extremely dedicated group of student volunteers.
