Free Pregnancy Circle - Support Group

Expecting mothers are invited to come spend time with one another, while forming friendships with other local moms who are expecting babies as well. Bonds formed at these circles are carried over into the Breastfeeding Support Group and Baby & Toddler Play Groups which are also held at the Waddle n Swaddle and Hudson Valley Midwifery.  We like to think this is the foundation for the support you will receive from the many other providers (including Hudson River Doulas), moms, and babies you will be connecting with and growing alongside of here in the Hudson Valley. 


The first of each month, one of the Hudson River Doulas moderate a free drop-in circle for expectant moms virtually during Covid-19 pandemic (1st Saturday),  registration required by sending a "contact us" message.  


Experienced doulas Amanda Winters and Suzie D'Angelo of Hudson River Doulas are present at the circle to provide free prenatal support, answer common birth related questions, share some laughs and foster relationships between expectant Hudson Valley moms. Find updates about our group on our closed Facebook group page: Expecting Hudson Valley. Send us a request to be added to the page with your email address or request to be added through Facebook on your computer of mobile device.
