Doula Cafe on Zoom

So now that everything else is online for me has online options at the moment, I’ve decided to bring my Doula Cafes online, too, so that everyone has access to a safe space to talk “face to face” about anything related to pregnancy, childbirth and the post-partum period as well as find out all about my work as a doula.

The first Zoom Doula Cafe will be on Monday, April 20th from 11-11:40am.  If you’d like to join, please email me here and I’ll send you the link!  The topic of this meeting will be about the post-partum period which may be looking a bit different now to how you envisaged it initially (with restrictions on travel and visitors) and what support is out there for you 🙂
