I have some really wonderful Birth Network of Monterey County updates to share with you!
First, we have several new members, welcome Caitlin Hutcheon, Marie Stroh, Yvonne Gray, Vignette Ching, Krystal Barschig, Lynn Sladek, Satisha Hollandsworth, Melanie Klaumann, and Marlena Christensen!
I also wanted to share with you some of the beautiful pictures that member Rachel Lambert of Mint Portrait Studio took at the Big Global Latch On Monterey. You can see the rest of the pictures here. Thank you Rachel!
Thank you to everyone who participated in the Natural Birth Talk last week. It was well attended and we have decided to offer it instead of the Meet the Midwives. We will host quarterly panels with midwives as well as other professionals knowledgeable in physiologic birth. If you are interested in participating, either on a panel or the welcome table, check out our Volunteer Form. If you would like to attend in December, RSVP here.
The BNoMC Board met on Sunday, and decided to add two people to our board. These would be general board positions for now. You do not need to be a birth professional, just a person supporting our cause. If you would like to volunteer, you can do that here, and membership can vote at the next Member Networking Meeting.
We would like to hear from membership when the most of you could attend our fall Member Networking Meeting. We had planned to meet in November, but with adding members to our Board and preparing for Optimize Your Birth, meeting in the beginning of October would be best. We want to choose a time and day convenient for the most members. Please select all of your available times in this poll, and we hope you will participate!
The next Meet the Doula is Friday, September 23rd at Babies”R”Us (1930 N Davis Rd) in Salinas, 6:00-8:00PM. Because Optimize will be on October 23rd, we will not have an October Meet the Doula. Please encourage your clients to attend. Doulas, please register by this Friday, September 16th. I’m looking forward to this event after our summer break!
