Birth Options Discovery Night

February 21, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

$25

Come have some veggies and dip while discovering what your birth options are in Washtenaw County and beyond. There’s no one “right way” to give birth! Understanding what your options are helps you make the choices that are right for you.

 

Topics covered include

 

  • What kind of birth is realistic for me to plan?
  • What are the differences between midwives and obstetricians? Which practitioner is a “best fit” for my specific needs? What if I am high risk? What if I am carrying twins/multiples?
  • What questions should I ask a practitioner to gauge their birth philosophy?
  • What happens in triage at University of Michigan or St. Joe’s hospitals?
  • What is a birth doula and are they worth the money? (What if I am low-income but I want a birth doula?)
  • What is a postpartum doula?
  • Where do I get good breastfeeding/chestfeeding information in our area?
  • If I wanted to explore homebirth options, where do I start?
  • Which books/podcasts out there are best if I am a nerdy fact-seeker versus if I am an artsy feeler type? If I want ALL the information? If I want “Just What I Need To Know”?

 

$25 per family
