"Love this Book!! This Book was so helpful to my husband and I when we were sleep deprived and needed a quick refresher on what to do. I also love the fact that it's a book that is quick to the point and gives you the most important information. It is so hard to sit down and read some of these mommy to be books that are 300 + pages and they talk in circles. This book was a awesome read and I recommend it to all my new mommies to be!"

Family Fest in Griffith Park

The Doula association of Southern California organized a Family Fest on May 9th in Griffith Park, LA. Melissa and Gea showed The First 8 Days of Being a Mom to a crowd of doula’s, pregnant woman and families of all kinds. As you can see it was a lovely day with information, music, a panel discussion and a book signing for YourBestBirth, the newly released book by Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein and of course we signed our book;-) We also raffled off a book which was won by Patricia from Burbank. Yay!
