    Posted by Katie Hennessy on Sep 6, 2011 5:33:46 PM

    According to the Toronto Sun, soul singer Erykah Badu is working towards a certification in midwifery. Previously, she became a birth doula after helping her friend through a natural birth. The Sun reports that,

    “Badu, who provides all of her services for free, has since become a spokeswoman for the International Center for Traditional Childbearing and she is now aiming to get her professional certification so she can open birthing centres in inner cities in the future.”
