Community Event of Interest: Giving Birth at Home

Saturday, October 3rd

Are you planning a homebirth or seeking an alternative to the medical model of care? Join us to learn more about giving birth at home. Highlights will include: why women choose homebirth, getting your partner on board, interviewing a midwife, labor support, preparing for birth, hospital transport, postpartum responsibilities and more!

Melissa Prebe is a mother to three children all born at home. She holds a deep belief in every woman's innate ability to give birth.
Amy Erlewine is an Athens area doula. She was drawn to homebirth advocacy after attending homebirths and seeing the benefits to mother, child, and family.
