In this episode, Geoff talks with Lena Cerbone, Director of Midwifery Services in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at WVU. Geoff and Lena talk about midwifery as it's depicted in Educated and as it is practiced here in West Virginia and elsewhere. They also talk about what it means to be called to a profession, the secret strength that good work gives us, home births and hospital births, catching babies, and many, many other things. Enjoy!

Thanks to our producers, Nick Kratsas and SeVohn Hunter, and to Sean Graham for the music you heard at the beginning and end of the episode.
