Midwifery Wisdom Podcast

Prepare to embark on a captivating journey as host Augustine Colebrook takes you on an eye-opening expedition through the state of birth care in India.

First, you'll hear each guest share their own personal journeys of what led them to the world of Midwifery. Then they work together to peel back the layers surrounding the state of birth care in India, offering an exploration of the stark contrasts between working at a birth center and the hospital environment.

Their stories shine a light on the transformative impact of compassionate and informed care.
