Minisode with Mel: A Birth Story, From an Auntie's Perspective

Welcome to the second episode in our newest series, Minisodes with Mel. In this solo episode, I tell the insane and twisted story about the time I had to face my biggest fear in life - CHILD BIRTH! In January 2021, my sister was admitted to the hospital to be induced for labor, and after a series of unfortunate events, I had to volunteer tribute to be by her side while she gave birth to her daughter Alana. I've been terrified of child birth my entire life, but the universe decided this was the year I'd have to face my biggest fear.
