It's official. The DOULA! film screening will be taking place on March 24th, 2pm at Birth Roots. They have been very awesome in letting us host the screening in their space. I will be co-hosting the event with fellow doula Natasha Miller. We previewed the film last night, and let me just say, it is fantastic. It is about an hour in length and showcases three separate births, all attended by doulas. If you have been thinking about becoming a doula, hiring a doula, know someone who might want a doula, or if you find yourself wondering what exactly a doula is, you should watch this documentary.
In addition to Natasha and myself, there will be a handful of other local doulas in attendance, so we will have a little discussion after the film to answer any questions/thoughts that you may have. If you're interested in attending please email me to register, space is limited. The screening is free, but any small donations for the space (Birth Roots) will be accepted.
A huge shout out to Alto Films for creating a film that builds awareness in the birthing community about doulas, and on top of that, allowing free screening during World Doula Week. You rock!
