The Meet The Doula Event in Buffalo, NY was a beautiful event organized by Shannon Johns of Calming Nature Doula Services. Thank you Shannon. So many great services for pregnant women in Buffalo. Moms were pampered with samples of massage, and facials. There were presentations all day regarding pregnancy-related subjects such as placenta encapsulation, what a Doula does, rebozo, midwifery, chiropractic, and of course a presentation on pregnancy massage benefits and myths by yours truly. The Postpartum Resource Center of New York’s Western New York Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders Task Force was there to educate our community to really ask moms how they are doing and to be aware of signs mom is having a hard time and how to get her help. https://postpartumny.org/wny/
It was fun and informative. We really are fortunate in Buffalo New York to have so many supportive services for families and mothers. If you ever have any questions about pregnancy massage or how I do look and help you in your birth, please shoot me an email and we can chat.
