Treasures Birth Hour

Chatty Claire and Acorn Treasures are initiating the "Treasures Birth Hour" at Acorn Treasures.  This is a once per month meeting, free, for Huntsville and North Alabama families.  

 

Each meeting will be led by either Jessica Claire or Sarah Bailey AND one or two local doulas.  Additionally, we will have special speakers at some meetings such as a midwife, ICAN Leader, chiropractor, obstetrician, acupuncturist, or any number of other possibilities.  

 

This is an opportunity for us to serve our community and engage in purposeful education opportunities and your collaboration will lessen the burden on any one person.


Meetings will be the 4th Saturday of the month from 9:00am-10:30am at Acorn Treasures. Presentation will begin at 9:15am to allow time for group to get refreshments and to settle into seats before presentation begins.   

 

Doula responsibility:

1.) Share your prepared activity or discussion questions (approx 40 minutes of activity or discussion) related to the topic of the month with Jessica Claire before meeting date.  For accurate event descriptions which leads to better attendance, share this information with Jessica Claire as early as possible; 3 weeks in advance is preferred.   

2.) Bring light snacks/refreshments for the group

3.) 10 minutes to speak about their business offerings

4.) Spread the word and invite people to attend

 

Jessica Claire and/or Sarah Bailey responsibility:

1.) Lead meeting  (along with scheduled doula) using activity or discussion questions related to the topic of the month

2.) Seating, table, & paper products
