Preparing for Birth and Postpartum 2022 is a three-month series hosted by Healing Internationale and African Services Committee.
Starting March 10th, every Thursday from 11-12:30 pm, through May 2022 virtual classes will be held in 90-minute sessions. Clients will prepare for their birth and postpartum journey with Childbirth Education, Mental Health in Perinatal Period, Navigating Hospital Birth, and Postpartum and Community Support. Sessions will be presented in English, Spanish, and French per month series. March Series will be presented in English, April will be presented in Spanish, and the May series will be presented in French. Clients will walk away with information on maternal and child health education, mental health, and wellness resources as they navigate the healthcare system to make informed choices about their pregnancy and the postpartum period.
Sessions are created with culturally competent content working together with African Services Committee. African Services Committee is a multi-service human rights agency in Harlem dedicated to assisting immigrants, refugees, and asylees from across the African Diaspora.
Our facilitator Natalie Peña is a first-generation Caribbean-American bilingual full-spectrum doula and childbirth educator based in Washington Heights.
