#3 Annie Francis & Helen Sanderson - "Success is not final, failure is not fatal"

The Unfeasible Podcast

David speaks with two founders of Teal organisations in the UK: Annie was a co-founder of Neighbourhood Midwives and Helen of Wellbeing Teams.  As we continue to explore what it takes to build our Unfeasible world, it's striking that Annie and Helen appear on the podcast together as firm friends: two women working in related but separate fields supporting one another to do things differently. Empathic support once again proving foundational. We talk about how the very systems that are supposed to be there to care for us in the UK, can conspire to block us from the very best examples of that care. Not because it's more expensive (in fact considerably less expensive), not because it's unsafe (in fact considerably more safe), but simply because the old system doesn't have the capacity to recognise things working differently.  We discuss success and failure and again contemplate the true costs of being a pioneer.  Listener, this episode may make you angry. May make you want to smash the old system. May make you want to pull your hair out in despair at how wrong-headed the reality of our current world can be.  We hope you can turn that frustration to action, to find the courage and compassion to bring life to the new ways and take on the lessons Annie and Helen are able to share with us.  COMMENTS WELCOME Twitter @davidaula Instagram @unfeasigram LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/in/david-aula-750b68227/ Links  Teal - https://www.reinventingorganizations.com/ Neighbourhood Midwives no longer exists but still provide a directory of private midwives if you'd like to explore working with one of the former Teal midwives- https://www.neighbourhoodmidwives.org.uk/midwife-directory/ Wellbeing Teams https://wellbeingteams.org/the-model/ Yanis Varoufakis - Adults in the Room - https://www.yanisvaroufakis.eu/books/adults-in-the-room/ Annie's work to bring the Joy of Panto to your home, with her partner Peter Duncan - https://www.pantoonline.co.uk/ Helen's podcast - A Cup of teal - https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/a-cup-of-teal-with-helen-sanderson/id1476437378 Unfeasible Website - www.unfeasible.world  Pronk Productions - https://pronkproductions.com/podcast-production/ If you're here looking for better care whilst pregnant...
