In this episode we talk about Kim's work as a hospital-focused doula and what she thinks every doula needs to be an effective advocate in the hospital.   We touch on Kim's move from California to Wisconsin and back again, grief and connection to "home."  We also cover Kim's time serving in the U.S. Army and how it informs the work she does today.
