This episode is for moms and dads who homeschool and still want to grow their career and fuel their passions while they are educating their children. Our guest and interviewee is Jacquelyn Clemmons, a birth and traditional postpartum doula, certified breastfeeding specialist, author, and mother of three. She has spent the past 20 years helping families from various backgrounds and ethnicities to have the care they need as they experience the joys of birth and the challenges of nursing. Through proper care, deep nourishment, and community support, she aims to help Black and Indigenious families experience their births and postpartum seasons in a positive way. We need more women like Jacquelyn in our world.
