PLUS! This Thursday, join us at 6:30 for “Eat, Drink, DOULA”, hosted by BirthFocus: At BirthFocus we understand the process involved in choosing the right doula to join women and their families on a most intimate experience, the birth of a baby! Our FREE “Eat, Drink, DOULA” open houses – held weekly at various locations throughout the city – give pregnant women, and their partners, a chance to learn more about our doula practice and to connect intimately with several doulas through one on one interviews. We lovingly refer to these events as “speed dating for doulas” as each expecting couple will have a chance to meet with 4-5 doulas, of varying experience levels, throughout the event. Please register for the open house of your choice and know that we are very much looking forward to meeting you! RSVP to 917-414-5595 or


And! La Leche League toddler meeting, Friday morning at 10: La Leche League is an international, nonprofit, nonsectarian organization dedicated to providing education, information, support, and encouragement to women who want to breastfeed. All breastfeeding mothers and pregnant women interested in breastfeeding are welcome to come to our meetings or call our Leaders for breastfeeding help.

Toddler Meetings are Special Meetings for older nursing babies, 9 months and older. The issues around feeding and nursing change and grow with your baby. This is a drop in meeting, no need to pre-register.

The Museum Of Motherhood is the first and only facility of its kind, celebrating the “her”story of mothers around the world. We need your help -- please make your tax-deductible contribution today! Visit the Museum of Motherhood NOW OPEN in NYC - Tues.-Sun., 10:45-6:30.
