Doula Speed Dating!
This is a unique opportunity for expecting women and the support person of their choice, or couples 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 with room for taking notes. Register Online!

A documentary exposé about breastfeeding in the United States. We show how women can reclaim their birthright and restore the nursing mother archetype. More than a breastfeeding promotion film, this is a film by, for, and about women. It is about the knowledge that inherently resides in every woman, how to access that knowledge and how to trust what we already know. It is a film that inspires women to say, “I can do that!” “I want to do that!”
Did you know that?…
•America has one of the lowest breastfeeding rates in the world.
•Premature babies’ health improves much quicker when they spend more time on their mother’s chest rather than in an incubator.
•Other countries are more advanced in their birth and breastfeeding policies than the United States.
•Our own Milky Way galaxy was named for mother’s milk.
