Doula Meet & Greet
Join the doulas for a no-strings-attached chance to get a sense of each of the doulas, and have a place to find out more about what we do, how we work together, and the benefits to having a doula-supported birth and/or postpartum. All Meet & Greets are currently hosted on Zoom.
Monthly Group Prenatals
Once you’ve hired an MDC doula, please put the monthly group prenatal on your calendar! Discuss special topics relating to the childbearing year, get to know the backups, listen to other families’ birth stories, and spend time in the company of other families who’ve chosen doula supported births.
Our group prenatals are held from 4:00-5:30p on the 1st Sunday of the month (unless it is a holiday weekend) at 1214 Williamson St.
Due to Covid-19, MDC’s Group Prenatals will be held on Zoom until further notice.
“[MDC] offers monthly group prenatal meetings, where you can meet and chat with all doulas. In preparation for birth, these wonderful women have helped me to take any doubts towards birth and see contractions as friends rather than enemies. I can only recommend them!” - Susi

EVERY TUESDAY, 10am - 11am
A WEEKLY PARENT & BABY GROUP INCLUSIVE TO ALL GENDER IDENTITIES.
$10 SUGGESTED DONATION | BUSINESS VENMO: @UZIMABIRTH , @ RABSARIS-ARREAZA , @PAXANDLUX
Becoming a parent is life changing. It can feel blissful, intimidating, easy, and hard. Katie Rice, Rabsaris Arreaza, and Connie Lambeth (three trained and experienced doulas), facilitate a weekly parent-baby group open to the public and available to anyone parenting a baby under 2yrs. Siblings welcome!
Bring your mask (required), a baby carrier, whatever you need to feel comfortable on a low-key winter hike, and enjoy some socially distanced outdoor time with your babe.
Parent & Baby Group will be held on Google Meet in case of extreme weather or temperatures below 20*F.
Early Parenting groups support new families in connecting and finding community as they navigate the transition to parenthood.
This group is open to all parents of any gender identity. We welcome all parents, honoring their experiences, identities, and voices through a culture of belonging and acceptance.
We believe that human connection is at the heart of meaningful parent support. Through shared experience, parents know they are not alone.
Here we share our stories, ask hard questions, reminisce about the joys, and maybe (most likely) cry a little. We show up and speak up with humility, vulnerability, humor, and strength.
Please follow our social media for possible cancelation or updates!
