I haven't had a chance to watch the entire thing yet (hour long) but it's an inspiring story of Loretha, a doula, who helps teen mothers in a disadvantaged neighborhood of Chicago. Just wanted to share!

checking it out now

just noticed she is a black woman. I think that is even greater!!!!! I don't know about natural child birth but I know with breastfeeding the rates are lower. And she teaches these girls to do it! Love that

Finally got to finish it. What a great woman! All mothers need to be mothered, which is why doulas are so important. But these teen moms need so much more and Loretha lovingly and tireless gives it. Very inspiring as a human being, as well as to a hopeful doula.
