Her birth, his birth, our birth


After her baby died, Nancy’s whole life changed.

I just so desperately needed compassion and love and tenderness and understanding from anybody.

Now she is a birth doula, helping others have the birth they want… including me!

With the help of Nancy, Claire and I began to view labour in a whole new light… but will it be enough to get me through the biggest event of my life?


Nancy and her family are volunteering in Indonesia, to find out more and support them go to https://gofund.me/c0ccca15

About the Podcast

Towards Connection
I'm willing to take risks and get uncomfortable in an Australia-wide search for what brings people meaning and connection.
Do you have enough connection and meaning in your life? What does this even mean and why does it matter?

Follow me – Kai, on a camping trip around Australia, meeting people who have found meaning and connection in their life.

Learn how they discovered it, how it has changed their life and why it is so powerful.

Then, join me as I try their activity out for myself, throwing myself into it with genuine curiosity and unbridled effort in an attempt to bring more meaning and connection into my life… who knows, maybe you’ll be inspired to try something new yourself.

Kai Noonan

Towards Connection is my first (and so far only) podcast. It was a bit of an experiment, an adventure and remains a passion project.

My professional background is in social services, specialising in sexual, domestic and family violence. I didn't get into this work to help people, I got into it because I find people fascinating. Especially in their darkest hours.

I believe we all just fumble through life doing the best we can with whatever experiences and resources we have. I also believe that everyone has a story to tell, and I want to hear those stories.
