This week on MD for Moms, I’ll be interviewing opens in a new window two extraordinary women, Midwife Risa Klein and Bare Air-Free Feeding System Founder Priska Diaz. Risa will explore birthing a baby using a midwife and the benefits many women experience from using a midwife. Risa will explain the role a midwife plays in a woman’s pregnancy and how it may differ from more conventional care. She will also discuss home birth and if it is right for you. Risa will review the various types of midwives and why knowing the difference matters, as well as much more.
The second half of the show will be devoted to birthing a business. Priska Diaz took her idea for a reflux reducing bottle and made it a reality. We will walk from concept to product and Priska will explain the hurdles she faced and continues to face going forward. You will additionally learn how to take your idea and make it a reality. Priska will also explain how her products can help a baby with reflux or one who is struggling to nurse.
