All Things Birth
Whether you’ve been dreaming about this pregnancy for years, or it caught you by surprise…
No one is quite ready for the level of overwhelm that comes from the number of choices and decisions to made while pregnant. Like sitting down with a professional wedding planner - our All Things Birth workshop aims to bring clarity and calm to your journey.
If you’ve been asking yourself:
- who are the best Midwifes and OBs?
- do I really need a doula?
- wait, what’s the difference between a midwife and a doula?
- what's the most cost effective and efficient way to prepare for this birth as responsible parents without over doing it
Or generally want to collect the best “insider tips”, this workshop is for you.
Join Birthsmarter's Director of Education, Caprice Abowitt, Erica Glaze*, special guests and meet other expectant parents, for a light-hearted and interactive session where we’ll discuss what’s good when it comes to midwives, doctors, doulas, birth locations, birth education, and more!
Bring your questions.*
