events/workshops

 

We host events for the families we work with 8 times a year.  Each meeting will have a different topic covering everything from Comfort Measure/Relaxation Techniques,  Prenatal Body Balancing, Postpartum Preparation, and Babywearing.  The goal of the classes is to offer opportunities to connect, learn, and empower.  We're thrilled to collaborate with Orna and Madeleine.

Meleah Ekstrand

Meleah believes that Women find some of their greatest strength when they give birth. They find power they never knew they had. Birth is mental, emotional and physical. With each of the births she attends , as well as her own four children she gave birth to, she learned something new about herself and the amazing inner strength that she possess. As a Doula, her goal is to help other women discover this inner strength that they innately have. Meleah’s wish is to help them feel loved and respected while they experience one of life's greatest moments.
