Birth and Parenting Educators

Welcome to Birth and Parenting Educators

Birth & Parenting Educators has provided Lamaze birth and parenting information for over 21 years to families in Kentucky, Michigan, and North Carolina.

Barbara also works with the UNC Volunteer Birth Doula Program at UNC Women’s Hospital. All of our doulas are professionally trained; many through the international organization DONA International – Doulas of North America International. Whether a pregnant woman arrives at the hospital alone or with family and friends, the doula can help her to have a more comfortable birthing experience. As a gift to our UNC patients, we conveniently offer our doula services free of charge.
