an interview with Mac Brydum of the Braving Doula Collective
Mac Brydum is a doula and a transman that is trying to conceive (TTC). In this interview, we discuss the role of the doula, particularly how they can support queer and transmasculine families. Mac talks about his hopes and dreams for pregnancy and birth, and we talk a lot about building a community that supports queer and trans parents and our kids.
