Group Prenatal Visits

  • Group prenatal visits include the usual clinical aspects of any prenatal visit, a pot luck brunch, discussion, and a chance for some of you to get to know each other. Bring a dish to share. These group prenatal visits are for current aMK clients. Pregnant people only please; partners and other children (except babes in arms) are kindly asked to go play at the park. If you are interested, talk to your midwife.

 

Family Dinners

  • About once a quarter, we hold family dinner get together for current and past clients of a Midwife's Kaleidoscope or those interested in learning more about our practice. This is an informal, pot luck style, family friendly dinner for people to build community and get support from each other during pregnancy and after birth. We offer a space to come together, share food, play and experience. Please send your name and contact information to info@midwifeskaleidoscope.org or 623-206-8531 if you would like to join us and we will let you know when the next get together is scheduled.
