The Event

Doula Speed Dating, Mamas' Market & More...

Mamas Market & Mingle

Attendees will enjoy our birthing-specific marketplace. We will have a room full of vendors who focus on making the mommy-baby connection.

Doula Speed Dating

Moms who know their options, own their power. Moms will have the opportunity to meet a variety of doulas. Our doulas will specialize in everything from immigration to bereavement.

Birthing Simulation

Not sure what to expect on the big day? Let our doulas, doctors and birthing experts walk you through it step-by-step. From what to pack in your bag to questions to ask at the hospital, we've got you covered.


Our workshops are your chance to hear directly from experts in lactation, baby-wrapping and more in a small group setting. Instead of trying it for the first time when baby is born, let us get you started.
