World Doula Week begins on March 22nd and will go through March 28th annually. This week was chosen because it is the spring equinox, which represents the return of fertility in countless cultures.
The Long Island Doula Association -- in celebration of World Doula Week -- is hosting a screening of Doula! The Ultimate Birth Companion – this is a new 60 minute documentary-style film about the work of birth and postnatal doulas. The film intimately captures in close-up detail the practical and emotional support given to the parents by their doula at each stage of their unique birthing journey.
This is a fundraising event and all net proceeds will benefit the Long Island Doula Associations "Families in Crisis Fund" visit www.lidoulas.com for more info.
