Maternity Brand and Doula Team Offer Free Webinar for Moms-to-Be
Being pregnant during a pandemic can be downright scary. Many expectant women are having to face stressful and sometimes scary new normals, including having to change their birth plan, receiving virtual prenatal care and adjusting to a different pregnancy experience than they had previously imagined. While this is undoubtedly difficult, as people remain confined to their homes with access to limited resources, many brands are putting their best foot forward and stepping up to help. Now, two companies are teaming up to host a free informational webinar for any pregnant woman who may no longer have access to in-person birthing classes.
The webinar will be hosted by the NYC Birth Village doula team, Narchi and Karla, in partnership with Elle Wang, founder and CEO of sustainable maternity-wear brand Emilia George, on Friday, April 3rd at 3 PM EST. The goal is to create a doula support system to help expectant couples feel a sense of community and comfort. Any expectant woman who signs up can join the webinar with her partner and have the opportunity to have some of their questions answered. Participants will also receive a $100 gift card to Emilia George maternity clothing.
“When I founded Emilia George, from day one, I knew my mission was to do something good for pregnant women. That mission is ingrained in my designs to make sure they meet pregnant women’s wardrobe needs. It is also ingrained in my mind, constantly propelling me to think of ways to help make the pregnancy journey easier for expectant moms,” Wang tells The Bump. “During this difficult time, especially when some NYC hospitals originally planned to ban support people, I immediately thought, ‘let’s at least offer them some virtual support.’ My own birth story was a bit dramatic and scary, and I had my husband and a doula to support me. That’s how I came up with this Virtual Doula support webinar.”
