All About Doulas: November 5 in DC

Filed Under:

An event of interest for those of you expecting a new addition to the family: The Breastfeeding Center for Greater Washington will hold a free info session on birth and postpartum doulas on Monday, November 5 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

A birth doula and postpartum doula will be on hand to discuss the following (and more):

What is a doula?
Why use a doula?
What services do doulas provide?
How is a doula different from a midwife?
Can I still use a doula if I plan to use pain medication?
Is a doula redundant if my partner will be at the birth?
Is there a connection between breastfeeding and doulas?
How much do doulas cost?
Where can I find a doula?
What should I ask a prospective doula?

Attendees are welcome to bring a partner, friend, child, and lunch.

To register, send email to: register-at-breastfeedingcenter-dot-org, or call 202.293.5182. The Center, which by the way has a superb reputation among local mamas and maternal-child health professionals, is located at 2141 K St. NW (Suite 3) in DC.
