Other educational support services

Lending Libraries

Both of our sites have books, VHS and DVD/CDs to share, loan and check out.  Please ask any of the core staff about loaning privileges.  We consider our information to be your information as much as possible.

Doula Training

We have extensive experience in training doulas, especially birth doulas.  We work with about 12-14 people over a three to four day, in-depth training that includes didactic learning, role playing, visiting couples, hands-on work and movies.  It is a full, fun community training.  We envision a group of doulas in every community, supporting every family who is giving birth if they do not have experienced support people with them on this journey.  Please let us know if you are interested in taking this step.

Lactation Counseling

Tisha Graham is a Certified Lactation Counselor and is, along with Betsy Mercogliano, Rose Mitchell-Tenerowicz and Jessica Hayek, a seasoned breastfeeding mother with years of experience supporting and counseling mothers during breastfeeding.  We are all available for breastfeeding support and counsel, as well as having resources for referral when your breastfeeding needs warrant more help.  Please let us know if you are in need of this support.
