Wisdom Wednesday: You Need a Doula at your Birth
November 20, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm| FREE
Chat with local doulas Julia Samson and Allie Mennie to learn about what doulas do and how they support you throughout your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.
Doulas are trained birth supporters. We are an asset because we provide experience in treading unfamiliar scenarios and we help educate you and normalize what you’re going through. We help you understand your options and help your partner or family support you.
STATS for people who had a doula attending their birth:
• 39% decrease in cesareans
• 15% increase in spontaneous vaginal birth
• 38% decrease in low APGAR 5 mins after birth • 10% decrease of use of pain medication

The event is free (included with play-area admission) but please register so we’ll know how many people to expect.
