As a Mother of 3, a registered nurse, and a photographer, I am a proud member of the East Alabama Birth Village. It is a great educational resource for women.
On Tuesday, East Alabama Birth Village hosted "Celebrating May: Dessert with Doulas, Nurses, and Mothers." Some of the businesses who are a part of the village offered door prizes, dessert, and coffee. The event was held at The Overall Company, in Opelika, Alabama. The highlight of the event was the comradarie between the mothers in attendance and the business owners of the East Alabama Birth Village. The icing on the cake were the children present, who benefit the most when parents, nurses, doulas, and other members of the healthcare team work together.
I must say the event was a HUGE success, and to top it off, there was a rainbow in the sky.
A special thanks for Ashley Lovell, Owner of Strong Momma Birth Services, LLC for having the foresight to create the East Alabama Birth Village and this event. Feel free to leave a comment below.
