Who will be at YOUR baby's birth? Who will have the privilege of sharing this precious, exciting, emotional, and intimate space with you? Whose face will you see when you reflect back on YOUR birth experience? At this meeting, we will discuss how to choose and prepare the people who you would like to share your birth experience with. You may have a doula, who is a professional support person, your husband or partner, a family member, or close friend. Let's discuss these choices and how you can prepare the non-professional members of your team to give you the best support.

Future discussions to include:
Pregnancy 101...Is this normal?
What's the difference between an Obstetrician, a Midwife, and a Doula?
Local Hospital Protocols...how to prepare
Popular Birth Methods and Childbirth Education
Reading is Fundamental...Book recommendations and suggestions
Tips for an Un-Medicated Birth
Inductions and Interventions
Effective Comfort Measures during Labor
...and More

It will be informative, highly interactive, and best of all fun! Your input on what topics you would like to hear about will be solicited and integrated into our meetings. These topics may lead to guest speakers, associate birth professionals, and/or vendors at our meet-up to offer more information and aid you in your decisions regarding future pregnancy concerns, birth, and postpartum.

**This event is open to expectant parents and their immediate support persons, only.
