Baby Babble Radio’s Samantha John sits down with Chelone Lee Woo, Independent Midwife, to chat about what it’s like to specialise in teenage pregnancy. Drawing on 20 years of experience in midwifery and the more than 1,000 births under her belt, Lee Woo talks about the importance of preparing young mothers for the journey ahead in a society that often ostracises them for their pregnancies.
