Join other new and expectant parents to learn about the benefits of doula services (birth and postpartum). Each Meet the Doulas Night includes an overview of what doulas do, the benefits of doula services and how to find a good match. Birth and postpartum doulas from the community participate to answer parents’ questions. Time will also be provided for parents to meet individually with doulas.
A birth doula, or childbirth assistant, offers non-medical, one-to-one care during pregnancy and the birth of your baby. This service makes available the nurturing care and support that traditional obstetrical care isn't always able to provide. A postpartum doula provides care for the family after the baby is born.
Please register at least three days prior to the date event. Meet the Doulas Night is a community service provided by Yoga Alameda. Yoga Alameda does not endorse specific doulas.
