Doulas generally recommend to their clients to take an out-of-hospital childbirth course during their pregnancy. The better informed a family is, the more empowering their experience can be. As they say “if you don’t know your options, you don’t have any”. Some of our doulas are certified childbirth educators.
Currently, Connie Lambeth teaches a Hypnobirthing Childbirth Education course, Alix Loniello and Margaret Romano teach in-home childbirth education privately, and Maggie Mehr teaches childbirth education at Meriter.
