Cassidy Dobek and Charli Zarosinski are both experienced student-midwives, doulas, and childbirth educators offering a 3-week childbirth education series on a monthly basis.  This childbirth education series is available to all parents-to-be and is suited for people who are birthing at home, in a birth center, or in the hospital.  This childbirth education series is intended to meet the needs of all new parents.
