Meeting Announcement

The Chicagoland Chapter of Dar a Luz Network, Inc. has some exciting things in store for you at our very first meeting. First, let me tell you the basic information about this meeting:

Thursday, October 16, 2008
7:30pm to 8:30pm
Starbucks Coffee 338 Randall Rd., South Elgin, IL 60177
Randall and McDonald roads

(The Starbucks is on the West side of Randall Road, and across from the Jewel Foodstore.)

The topic of our meeting will be the value of a Doula, whether it be a Birth Doula, or a Postpartum Doula. For those of you who have never heard of a Doula, and you are looking for as much direct help as possible before, during, or after the birth, this meeting is a must. Our guest speaker has yet to be named.

Also, there will be a raffle at this first meeting, with all proceeds going toward the purchase of new books for our still-growing Lending Library.

For your information, future meetings will discuss such things as nutrition for mom and baby, breastfeeding, pregnancy complications, medical interventions and their effects, yoga, and much more.
