Happy New Year Inhabitots readers! My name is Danelle Brown, aka The Green Doula. I am very excited about this upcoming year and sharing with you weekly tips, stories and features about all things holistic pregnancy, birth and sustainable baby care. It is my resolution to inspire you, answer your questions, and crank up the spotlight on deserving organizations, products, and DIY tidbits that can help you have an empowering and conscious experience with your bundle of joy.

Next Saturday, Jan 10th, I will be participating in a panel discussion on How to Have an Easy, Healthy Pregnancy, as part of The Pregnant New Yorker Series. This dynamic panel will be led by Midwife Cara Mulhanhn, who is featured in The Business of Being Born. There will be many wonderful prizes raffled off, including a free green nursery/home wellness consultation. Tickets are only $10 and you must RSVP. Hope to see you there!
