Final Project selects

For staff class this semester, I'm working with a woman who is a doula. A Doula is like your birth coach only way more productive and knows more than your husband who might pass out. DeeDee teaches classes for expecting moms in the traditional sense as well as pre-natal belly dancing for moms who are planning to have a natural child birth.
