MUM 48: Karen Tham : Choosing a Home Birth

I absolutely loved this episode! Super relaxed and it was my first time interviewing my guest in person, sitting relaxed on the couch and having a chat. I could get used to it!

Not only do Karen and I have the same name (ok well you all know me as Kaz , true, which is my preferred name but Karen is the name my mum gave me) but we also speak the same language and I am not referring  to the English language if you get what I mean.

We sepak all things birth, natural parenting and loads about what to expect for new mums.
