The Reluctant Therapist: Harboring healthy forms of masculinity in fatherhood

   In the world of childbirth, parenting and post-partum support, the role of fathers is often overlooked and undervalued. In honor of Father's Day, host Elizabeth Barrett and The Birth Bruja, Eri Guajardo Johnson, have a conversation about the positive impact of healthy masculinity as support in the birth room and in parenthood, as well as the importance of inclusive prenatal and birth care for trans men.


Elizabeth Barrett is a wife, mother, licensed marriage-family therapist, educator, eavesdropper, emotion worker, and mental health consultant. She uses all of these skills to address the subjects that we all struggle with in this conversation with the Reluctant Therapist.
