Long before our babies are born, their stories begin. They begin with moments—the first flutter of a tiny kick, the first glimpse of an ultrasound. A family begins long before birth, and so does its story. Learn to tell the story of your baby and your new family in a one-day workshop led by storyteller and doula Lisa Libowitz and doula Dale Kaplan.
This workshop will allow expectant mothers and their partners to use journaling to explore their hopes and dreams for their baby and for the life they will share together. Participants will receive 10 weeks of prompts after the workshop that will inspire you to tell your own unique family story.
Lisa Libowitz is a storyteller and doula who teaches storytelling as an adjunct professor at Towson University. She also is the mother of three daughters, and she has chronicled her family's story in journals for nearly a quarter of a century.
Dale Kaplan has had the pleasure and honor to work with more than 300 families as a labor/birth coach, postpartum doula and trainer. Nothing is as fulfilling for a doula than the birth experience and working with moms and partners. Dale believes each birth adds joy to the world. Married for 37 years, she has two daughters and two grandsons. Dale, also known as the Coola Doula, has proudly served families in the Baltimore, Washington DC and surrounding metro areas for more than 13 years.
Our goal in creating Birth Stories is to allow you to approach your child's birth knowing your family's story, and the story you imagine for that oh-so-important day. We believe that the process of chronicling your birth will lead to better outcomes and a happier family.
