This is a unique opportunity for expecting women (plus the support person of your choice) and families considering having a baby in the near future to meet several doulas in a short period of time. It will be set up like a speed dating event where each couple will have some face-to-face time to get to know each doula. This is a great opportunity to get a feel for several doulas and figure out which ones you connect with so you can schedule a longer interview. We will provide a list of "questions to ask" for the couples or expecting women participating, as well as a sheet listing each doula's picture and bio. This event is fun and fast paced, and a great way to learn more about your options when giving birth! (doulas are not just for women looking for natural birth, we also have postpartum doulas, csection doulas and all doulas support a woman's birth choices!) Come learn more and enjoy a fun evening at the NEST!
