Prenatal Workshops

Our Prenatal Workshops are facilitated by our Doulas and Breastfeeding Peer Counselor. Classes are offered once a month on Wednesdays.

Fetal Development
We discuss Baby's ability in utero, including the five senses and movement.  We talk about changes in the body during pregnancy and comfort
measures for pregnancy including relaxation. We also talk about the choice to breastfeed and colostrum.  We discuss activities families can do to
develop a better understanding of their babies' abilities.

information on hospital proceedures during labor and delivery and afterwards including breastfeeding.
