“For every newborn that crosses my threshold, I feel the inclination to unwrap them, check the umbilical cord, count breaths and check for chest indrawing!” These are the words of Charlotte Blake Alston after she narrated the final editions of our first 10 videos on newborn care. She is a master storyteller, professional narrator, instrumentalist, and singer who has performed at a wide range of venues worldwide including the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Women of the World Festival in South Africa and the Cape Clear Island Festival in Ireland. Charlotte holds two honorary doctorates and has received numerous other honors and awards including the Pew Fellowship in the Arts and the Circle of Excellence Award from the National Storytelling Association. We are very grateful to Charlotte for the pro bono contribution of her lovely resonant voice to our first videos.
