The Corporate Counsel Show: How being a birth doula makes me a better GC

On top of being the GC in the healthcare sector, Nina Stamell also works as a birth doula, supporting women and their partners in the childbirth and postpartum journey.

In this episode of The Corporate Counsel Show, host Jerome Doraisamy welcomes back MyHealth general counsel and company secretary Nina Stamell to discuss her work in the healthcare sector and what she enjoys about it, what it means to be a birth doula, what she finds so meaningful about supporting women through the birthing journey and how she approaches individual cases.

Stamell also reflects on how she balances her schedule as a senior in-house professional and doula simultaneously, how lawyers can sell the undertaking of such roles on top of their in-house duties to workplace superiors, the main takeaways and transferable professional lessons from her work as a doula to her role as a GC and co sec, the importance of informed consent, finding pursuits that are meaningful and rewarding, and why she’s a better legal professional as a result of her work as a doula.
