Meet the DoulasJoin us on Monday, March 20, from 7-8:30pm for our next Meet the Doulas gathering. We will begin with a short presentation on the role of the doula, followed by informal mingling so that you can meet and chat with several area doulas. You may meet one whom you want to hire on the spot or collect several business cards to set up more in-depth interviews later. Get your questions answered! Refreshments will be provided. Pre-registration is helpful but not required. Free.
