I am pleased to be offering my classes through Emerald Doulas. I have always taught my students about the many benefits having a doula provides for birthing families, so I am pleased to introduce them to the region’s first full-service and professional birth and postpartum support business. Emerald Doulas serves families in Durham, Chapel Hill, Carrboro, Hillsborough, Raleigh, Apex, Cary, Wake Forest, Garner, Graham, Burlington and beyond. The agency model offers many resources for families to access during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum with childbirth education classes, placenta encapsulation services, lactation support, yoga classes and support groups. By holding my classes at Emerald Doulas, I can be sure my students are aware of the many offerings available to them!
