Starting in June 2022, we will be hosting community gatherings on the first and third Monday of each month in East Van from 7-8:30pm. This is a great opportunity to meet other families in your community that also have Jill, Judy, and Dori as their doulas. Each gathering will be led by one of your doulas. There will have a topic that will be discussed initially, and then there will be an opportunity to ask general questions and pick the brain of one of your doulas.
The earlier in pregnancy that you hire us, the more opportunities you will have to attend these prenatal gatherings!
