This is an opportunity for expectant families in Northern Humboldt County to meet local doulas and hear about the services they offer. Formal introductions will be followed by a Q&A session. Doula is a Greek word whose definition has come to mean a woman who helps other women. The word has further evolved to mean a woman experienced in childbirth who provides continuous physical, emotional, and informational support to the mother before, during, and after childbirth.
