Why the “etc.”?

February 26, 2010

We are so excited about the birth of our new blog (pun completely intended)!  Since Malory and I are both professional birth doulas and this blog will speak a lot on pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum topics, the “Doulas” of “Doulas, etc.” is pretty self-explanatory.  But why the “etc.” ?

Well, we like to talk a lot and don’t want to limit ourselves.  As doulas we are immersed in the world of women, babies, and families.  So much so that we actually are women with babies and families.  Just like you, we depend on the community and support around us.  While we will be talking about issues directly related to our work as doulas, we will also talk about many other topics (that would be the “etc.”) that interest families- well, ours anyways.  Our hope is that this blog can be one more addition to you and your family’s community of support.

In celebration of this new beginning we are giving away a  “birthday present”!

Bravado! Designs has gifted us with the “Breastfeeding with Bravado” DVD . And we want to pass it on to one of you in our very first giveaway!
Breastfeeding w/ Bravado

If you are not familiar with Bravado! Designs- they are an amazing company that offers stylish and comfortable nursing bras (as well as tons of other products for pregnant/nursing mamas). I can not say enough about my favorite product of theirs- the nursing tank top. These nursing tanks have REAL bras inside- who wants their ladies sitting on a “shelf” ? Even those of you who thought you could never wear a tank with a built in bra should give it a try, they go all the way up to a size “G”.

To Enter the Giveaway:
• Head over to the Bravado website and check out their awesome products. Leave a comment below with the name of your favorite item or the one you would love to try.
• For an extra entry, put a link back to this giveaway on Facebook or Twitter (and then do a second comment here that says “FB/Twitter”)
• You will get ANOTHER entry for posting about this giveaway on your own blog (add another comment here that says “blogged here” with a link to your blog)
• And lastly, you will get ONE MORE entry for subscribing to our blog. (Add another comment that says that you’ve subscribed)

    Yay for the blog! Proud of you guys! I would definitely love to try one of the Bravado tanks. The tanks I’ve used before dont have a bra, just a “built in” type bra which doesnt offer the same kind of support. So that looks pretty nifty! 🙂

    A bamboo nursing bra? That’s what I’m talking about!

    I can’t decide between the bamboo bra or the nursing shrug!?!?!
