Get involved in supporting pregnant women and families

Newborn baby

The NS Doula Association is looking for people (all genders, doula or non) to fill positions on their 2010 Board. This is a great opportunity to get involved with promoting the quality of prenatal, birth and postpartum support given to women and their families. An information session is being held on Wednesday November 4th at 7pm in the North and Windsor Sobey's community room. You are invited to attend to find out more about this opportunity.

Also, on Sunday, November 15, the Midwifery Coalition of Nova Scotia invites you to share in an afternoon of dialogue around the current status of midwifery in Nova Scotia. Get your questions answered, your opinions out there and your thoughts heard on how we can make midwifery a reality for every woman in the province! Tea, coffee and snacks provided. Children welcome. 1-4pm, Sunday November 15 at the Women's Council House at Young and Inglis in Halifax.

Another way to get involved is by volunteering with the Extra Support for Parents (E.S.P.) Volunteer Service, an outreach program of the IWK, which provides in-home, volunteer support to parents of new babies. E.S.P. families are facing difficult or stressful situations, such as twins or triplets, single parenting, or being new to the Metro Halifax area. E.S.P. volunteers provide a listening ear and caring help to families in their homes. E.S.P. is a very flexible way to volunteer! For more information, email or click here.
