Placenta Prep & Belly Binding Workshop by ProDoula
January 30th & 31st 2016 in Charlotte, NC
ProDoula’s Placenta Prep is coming to Charlotte, NC. This 2 day, 12 hour comprehensive workshop is designed to educate and guide you on your path to becoming a well-respected postpartum placenta specialist in your community.
Through our program you will learn about our industry standards as well as ProDoula’s desire to elevate them. ProDoula insists that our Postpartum Placenta Specialists do not transport client’s placentas. Additionally, since providing services in a client’s home is the only doubt free way the client can be certain she is consuming her own placenta, services must always be provided in the client’s home.
ProDoula is associated with providing the highest quality training programs available to birth workers and the Placenta Encapsulation program is nothing short of exceptional.

Every family shares a heritage of unique lullabies, depending on family traditions, culture, religion and even just musical tastes. I have always been fascinated by traditional lullabies from other cultures. Just for fun, here is a collection of the songs I have sung to my own 4 babies and also many doula babies, as I ushered them into dreamland.
I'm a big fan of one-day childbirth prep workshops! You can gain so much knowledge in just a few short hours. I think it is great to gain different perspectives and bits of wisdom from more than just one childbirth educator. I recommend checking into a more in-depth series of classes as well, but be sure to be on the lookout for short workshops such as this whenever possible. I love the work of Pam England and Birthing From Within and highly recommend her books and workshops based on her methods. If you are having a baby in the Charlotte, NC area sometime this fall or winter, you don't want to miss this class!
