Upcoming Classes & Events on the South Shore

New World Doula Services | Birth Doula Services | South Shore Massachusetts

Our next childbirth class will be on Sunday, December 1st, 2019 from 11am-5pm at the South Shore Perinatal Wellness Center in Norwell, MA co-taught with Certified Professional Midwife Nicole McKeen.  This class is for those birthing in a home or hospital setting.

Learn about the physiological process of childbirth in a manner that empowers you to welcome your baby into the world in the most gentle and loving way. An unmedicated birth enhances natural oxytocin to both mom and baby allowing for better breastfeeding rates, less complications, faster recovery and better bonding.

This class is designed around Lamaze’s 6 Healthy Birth Practices, which are:
– let labor begin on its own
– walk, move around and change positions throughout labor
– bring a support person/team for continuous support
-avoid interventions that are not medically necessary
-avoid giving birth on your back and follow your body’s urge to push
-keep mama and baby together, it’s best for mom, babe and breastfeeding

We also do relaxation exercises for labor.

We believe that knowledge is power and so many moms and their partners find it easier to maneuver through the birth process if they know what to expect and why things happen, whether it be physiological or hospital procedures.  Register here.

Stay tuned for our next Meet the Doulas & Placenta Encapsulation: An Informative Event at Jessica Lynch Photography in Plymouth, MA. Have you considered having a doula for your birth or postpartum care? As a prior doula herself, amazing maternity, newborn and birth photographer Jessica Lynch is extremely passionate about birth rights, positive and empowering birth outcomes and overall wellness as you transition in to this next chapter of your life.

Doulas are not just for the “natural” birth! C-sections, epidurals, sibling births, home and hospital alike — we ALL need DOULAS!

Come meet our doulas, and have your questions answered regarding birth and postpartum practices, like the benefits of a doula attending your birth and incredible offerings like placenta encapsulation.
