Episode 41 Show Notes

On episode 41 of All Ears at Child’s Voice: A Hearing Loss Podcast, Wendy and Colleen are joined by Michelle Hu, also known on the internet as Mama Hu Hears. Michelle Hu has been a pediatric audiologist for over 13 years working specifically with the diagnosis, hearing amplification, cochlear implant evaluation, programming, and aural rehabilitation. Something unique about her is that she grew up hard of hearing herself. She was fitted with hearing aids at 3 years and now utilizes bilateral cochlear implants. She is creator of Mama Hu Hears, a safe space to share, laugh, learn and inspire others about living life with hearing loss.

Wendy and Colleen talk to Michelle about how she helps families navigate their children’s hearing loss journey with the unique perspective as both a deaf woman and a pediatric audiologist.
