Blog's by our very own!

Have a local blog? Let us post it like the following 
A Michiana doula's blog B.B. Birthwork.  
Betsy Black childbirth educator, doula, birth assistant

Mother of three kiddos, I spend my time caring for them and our home. Working in childbirth is a passion that comes second to my family demands, but I sneak in bits of teaching childbirth classes, doula work and attending home births as a midwife's assistant. Much of my work is with my Amish neighbors, as they are a large percentage of the childbearing women in my area.

Went to a birthday party at Imagine That and had to nurse the twins. I just have to say that the owner was more than accommodating, she offered me multiple places to sit, water, AND SNACKS! To sum it up, Imagine That is breastfeeding friendly!

There hasn't been a post in a long time so let's start back up with a short video clip...

Ever wondered what a prenatal visit in your home would be like....check out this short video!

In it you will see a local 27 week pregnant mama being shown some techniques to help loosen up ligmants that can help in optimal baby positioning.
