Top 4 Pregnancy Information Resources

Thanks to the somewhat overwhelming and abundant information found in places like the beloved and dreaded GoogleBabyCenterpregnancy.com (seriously, those week by week images are addicting!) and WebMD,  you have the world at your fingertips.

Back to School with Tulsa Family Doulas

It's back to school and you know what that means: school clothes shopping, doctor visits, hair cuts and the dreaded school supply purchasing! There are all the wonderful first day of school pics posted on social media and the mommies and daddies with tears in their eyes as they realize their babies are yet another year older...then there are the stay-at-home-parents and work-at-home-parents who celebrate with mimosas after dropping off their kids FINALLY!

Well, at Tulsa Family Doulas we're celebrating the upcoming school year by launching our group childbirth classes and getting the word out about our private birth and parenting classes!

Every birth is normal and natural.

At Tulsa Family Doulas, we know every birth can be good. Your birth can be good. Every birth is normal and natural. If you tell us you want a natural birth or a normal birth, we will ask what that means to you, help you prepare for your vision of a "good birth," and support you every step of the way.

One of the most important things you can do to prepare for the birth of your baby is to educate yourself!

I mean, we all know how the baby got in there, right? We just need to know what it takes to get the baby out when the time is right!

No matter what your goals are for your birth and postpartum period, having a thorough understanding of childbirth will help you feel more informed about everything that is going to take place when your baby (or babies!) decides to make his or her appearance.

It has been called the wonder hormone, hug hormone, cuddle chemical, moral molecule, bliss hormone, but it is known best as the LOVE hormone.
