Home Birth Meetup - Charleston

Our group meets the fourth Saturday of each month, and we welcome women/couples of all interest levels—from experienced home birthers to pure curiosity seekers.  With home births representing less than 1% of all births in West Virginia, this is a very elite group!  http://homebirth.meetup.com/19/

This began as a networking tool for doulas and aspiring doulas in WV and surrounding areas.  We use this as a communication tool for announcements of events, news from around the state, personal updates, and other birth-related information/news.
