Community Prenatal Meetings are an exclusive benefit for Emerald Doulas clients. Whether you're a birth, postpartum or sibling doula client, first time parents or experiencing parenthood again, Community Prenatal Meetings are a time to build connections and grow together.
We host a time and place for you to hear about your options, plan for your birth, and connect with other couples. We'll guide the conversation and you'll learn from us and each other. Each month we feature a different topic (topics not often covered in-depth during childbirth education or other prenatal education opportunities) on a variety of days and times so you can be sure to find a chance to attend.
You're welcomed and encouraged to as many as you'd like, you prepare for birth and life with a newborn. These are your opportunities for the most in-depth preparation for your transition into parenthood and chance to build a deep relationship with your doula team. These meetings are hands-down the single, most talked about benefit of being a client at EmDo. Our clients rave about the connections they make and the information they learn and share together.
