Motherhood in Milan with Valentina Ghilardotti

Our first interview for Motherhood in Milan is with one of our favourite women working with and for mothers in Milan, Italy. Valentina Ghilardotti is a doula with years of experience and a native Milanese.

She’s not only a trained doula but also a mom of four. In addition to working with La Leche League for over 10 years, she’s also one of the trainers at Mondo Doula, one of the main doula associations in Italy. She’s a mentor and role-model for so many of us in the maternal health world and it was my pleasure to sit with her and learn even more about her in this interview.

While our podcast is still at the beginning stages, we really love the content that is being shared. If you’re a podcasting expert and you’d like to give us a hand, please let us know at We’re also accepting suggestions for moms and maternal health workers to interview.

We’re trying really hard to get this podcast on iTunes but for now it’s available here on the website. If you know someone who might appreciate our podcast, please share this link!

As always, many thanks to Marta from Musindò for the wonderful music for this podcast. Marta is an extremely talented music teacher in Milan who teaches music education to young children from 0-6 years (as well as ukulele lessons!). You can find all the details about Marta at her site:
