I met a lovely group of women the other night - and I am honored that their organization, Dining for Social Change, has decided that MBC will be the recipient of their upcoming Tuscan dinner.
The event will take place on March 12, 2011 at 7pm
at 5213, rue Hutchison, Montreal .
The dinner will be prepared by a local chef and promises to be a great event. You can eat, drink and be merry, and know that you are supporting a very worthy cause.
The Montreal Birth Companions mandate is to provide free doula services for women who are in REAL need: recent immigrants, refugees or asylum seekers, or women living on the street or in difficult circumstances. Our doulas do prenatal classes with these women and then attend their labor and birth. We run on almost no cash. Most of the work we do is a labor of love. We serve about 60 women a year, and one client takes up to 50 hours of a doula's time.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!
I have an assortment of interesting classes, workshops and get-togethers happening at my cafe over the next few months. Here's...
