Healthy Pregnancy Lecture: All About Doulas

Sunday, November 21st
6:30 - 8:00 p.m.
Led by: Kathy Julia, LMT, CD

Cost: FREE! 

Our next Healthy Pregnancy Lecture is all about doulas! Doula is a Greek word that refers to a woman who personally serves another woman. The word has evolved to encompass a woman who is experienced in childbirth, and who provides continuous physical, emotional and spiritual support to the mother, before, during, and after childbirth. Even today, Doulas can serve a great role in the labor and delivery experience. They are trained birth professionals who offer guidance, knowledge, and support to a mother as well as an expecting father. Join Kathy Julia, a certified Labor doula and trainer, for a conversation about the role of a doula in providing support to a birthing family. This is an amazing opportunity for anyone who is interested in having a doula at their birth or also in becoming one.

Kathy Julia is a Licensed Massage Therapist since 1978, a practitioner of Siddha Yoga since 1982, and a Certified Labor Doula and Labor Doula Trainer with Childbirth & Postpartum Professional Association (CAPPA). She is also a mother and grandmother. The combination of knowledge, skills and experience have called her to a strong sense of purpose to fulfill the need for educational, emotional and spiritual support to birthing families. She has helped countless families reduce the stress, fears and anxieties related to childbirth, empowering them to participate fully in their birthing process.
