2016 was a big year for us. We served around 50 families through our childbirth classes, labor doulas, placenta encapsulation, fitness class, postpartum doulas, and free online groups/meetups. We welcomed in two more doulas to the team, Sarah and Lindsey. We also gained access to the operating room for clients having a cesarean birth at Texas County Memorial Hospital in Houston. Our 5th annual MamaFest was our biggest one yet. In fact, it was so big and so successful that we’re going to a new venue this year. Stay tuned for news on that later in 2017. Our final exciting moment in 2016 was seeing Doula Cara welcome her third baby, Everlee, into her family! Cara was amazing, Everlee’s birth was beautiful, and we feel fortunate to add her to our “families served” list.
We are looking forward to 2017, which is shaping up to be huge for us! Here’s what we know so far:
Birth Classes – We decided to make THREE options for group classes every month. This gives you the opportunity to choose which class day/time fits you best. For those who need something different, we still have our private full series class that is done on your schedule.
Meet the Doulas – This free, informal event is for those of you wondering what all the fuss about doulas really is. Our doulas will be on hand to answer questions, give you a tour of our facilities, and feed you some delicious snacks too! Be sure to join the Facebook event for one (or all) of them…we’re doing it January, April, July, and October.
SBS Newsletter – We will be publishing a quarterly newsletter to help keep all of you better informed about new services, articles of interest, and anything else that tickles our fancy. Click here to join the mailing list (you can unsubscribe at any time).
There are more exciting things in the works, but those will have to wait..
We thank all of you for trusting us to serve your families in 2016. We are looking so forward to seeing new babies join the world and serving new families as they find their parenting wings to take flight. From all of us here at Summer Birth Services to all of you, have a fabulous new year!
