There are some women who are so achingly cool, that the fact itself really goes without saying. Such is the case with Domino Kirke, a longtime Brooklyn dweller (by way of England), who is one of the co-founders of Carriage House Birth, which she started eight years ago after noticing a gap in her own care while carrying and delivering her son, Cassius (now 8). While juggling the demands of devoted, single-motherhood and her busy on-call lifestyle (she’s attended around 200 births in the Brooklyn/NYC area), she’s also managed to finish up her first full-length album, which will be released this spring (peep her sister Jemima, of GIRLS fame, in her latest video). Find out more about the inspiring mama—including her ace advice for successful co-parenting and the books she considers must-reads—in our snapshot of a day-in-the-life with Domino, below.
