Education and Fun at CNY Doula Connection Events
CNY Doula Connection is going back to the basics, Birth Basics. Our group has restructured out meetings to bring the basics of pregnancy, labor and delivery to all expecting parents. Our meetings will provide information to educate parents on what to expect during this time and how we, as doulas, can help further educate, nurture and support your birth wishes.
Upcoming Birth Basics meeting:
Every 2nd Monday each month (except December)
CNY Healing Arts
195 Intrepid Lane
Syracuse, NY 13205
*Please note: for the time being, due to COVID, all of our Birth Basics meetings will be virtual until further notice. Thank you for understanding!
October 12th: Tips for a Low Intervention Birth
Every woman wants the best possible labor, delivery, and birth experience. For most of us, this means avoiding unnecessary labor interventions especially if we want a natural childbirth. Some people might think that there’s no harm in a few labor interventions; however, every unnecessary intervention puts you at a much greater risk for more, and increasingly risky, interventions. There may always be circumstances beyond our control. That’s a given, and making the best-informed choice in that moment is a necessity. There is much, though, that can be done to create a natural, gentle birth while still being in a hospital setting. We will discuss what constitutes as an intervention and how one may lead to another, and tips on ways to prevent unnecessary interventions.
Bonus! Our friend, Heather Yerden, will also be speaking at this meeting about pregnancy, birth, and newborn photography. Heather is an amazing photographer, so come learn how she can capture your precious moments!
November 9th: Breastfeeding Preparation
Although breastfeeding is natural, for many there’s a learning curve. This event will give you a foundation of knowledge and skill for your breastfeeding experience. Participants will learn how to overcome breastfeeding challenges, problem solve and how to establish a successful breastfeeding relationship right from the start.
December: No Birth Basics, enjoy the holidays!
