As the Maryland Representative for DONA International I have the pleasure of hosting annual member meetings. This year we had a fantastic turnout of over 15 doulas! Maryland's birthing women are so lucky to have such an amazing group of doulas to choose from. After networking and chatting we were honored to have an informative session on postpartum depression by Valerie McManus LCSW-C of Healing Therapies. In a fun change of pace it was the doulas who were led in a visualization. Our member meeting was full of excitement as we hear about innovations in doula care, future conferences to help keep us learning, and the growing trend of placental encapsulation.
If you are looking for a doula for your upcoming birth, Maryland DONA doulas have you covered!
