"What is a Doula?" Class
This class, taught by Dawn Bollhoefer, CD, SBD, is for pregnant women who want to learn more about doulas and their role in pregnancy and childbirth.
Doulas offer physical and emotional support to mothers and partners before, during, and after childbirth. At Guiding Star Marshalltown, Dawn will be educating women on their rights during their pregnancies, teaching about doula care and informed consent.
