My second interview is with Rachel Hart

I wanted to interview Rachel because she has a teenage daughter and works with women every day. She understands the power of women coming together and sharing and talking about these issues. She’s a homebirth midwife and is serving her community in a crucial way.

In this 45-minute interview Rachel describes the beautiful coming of age ceremony she hosted for her daughter’s 13th birthday, the dance culture from a parent’s perspective, the roles we as women play, overcoming a difficult childhood, finding forgiveness and self acceptance, and the importance of communication and connection when parenting a teen.

If you’d like to digest it in smaller bits, I have a playlist called “Interview Clips: Issues Girls and Parents Face” where you can watch the interview one topic at a time. Let me know what you think!


This is Rachel’s bio, which can be found on Birthing Way Midwifery’s website.

Rachel Hart

I am a traditional midwife and CPM. I moved to Atlanta from Las Vegas with my husband and four children in 2008. I am a graduate of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas with a Bachelor’s degree in English. I began my midwifery journey through an apprenticeship training program in 2005 and began my own practice in 2007.  All four of my children were born at home, the last birth unassisted. I joined Beth at Birthing Way in 2010.

Helping women realize their true power and potential as a woman and mother through the birthing process has been a privilege. I have really enjoyed attending births with the lovely families here in Georgia. I also support the birth community as secretary of the Georgia Midwifery Association and as Membership Director of the Georgia Birth Network.
