If you’re in Halifax and are interested in promoting prenatal care for women and families, then this event is for you (anything that is pro-birth is a worthy cause in my book).
On Sunday, October 16th, 2011 the Nova Scotia Doula Association (NSDA) and IWK Health Centre Foundation will be hosting the 1st Annual Walk, Rattle and Stroll for Birth. Our goals are to raise awareness about the importance of prenatal, birth and postpartum support for women and their families and raise funds to benefit the NSDA and the IWK Women’s and Newborn Health Unit.
Welcoming a new life into the world brings a lot of change within a family. Research shows that doula care reduces family stress, improves health outcomes and reduces healthcare spending. This will be a fun-filled family event that helps to create healthier communities in Nova Scotia, right from the start.
