#52: “A Sociological Doula Who Codes!” with Kay McKelly | Educative Sessions

Kay McKelly was in a PhD program for sociology, feeling unfulfilled and stunted in her interest in the Internet. She left sociology for midwifery, training as a doula and home birth midwife, volunteering with the Prison Birth Project. While she loved birthwork, she didn't want to mix capitalism with it, so she turned to something new: software development.
