Wake up! The Northeast Mississippi Birthing Project blog is back online and getting better each day!

Sorry for the year-long break, everyone. There has been a lot happening here in our humble Tupelo office, and I’ll share a bit with you about it. First, I’ll introduce myself, the voice behind the keyboard: I’m Zola Pickett, the admin assistant, community-based doula trainer, and social media magician!

Cuddling babies, making them squeal with joy...magic!
Cuddling babies, making them squeal with joy…you know, magic!

I’ve volunteered with the Birthing Project in several different aspects since 2011, and am looking forward to bringing you news & pictures from all of our exciting community events.

What’s been up while we’ve been away? We have…
**Welcomed at least a dozen new babies into our growing tribe**
**Welcomed and graduated our first classes of community-based doulas & breastfeeding peer counselors!**
**Began providing, at no charge, a doula and breastfeeding peer counselor to any little sister in our program who wished for one.**
**Welcomed more new volunteer sisterfriends to our circle–umoja, sisters!**
**Safety-checked & installed car seats so that kids can ride safely**
**Had one of our most popular community baby showers to date!**

That’s a lot, and those are only just the highlights! If you haven’t liked our Facebook page, that’s the BEST way to stay up-to-date with the latest events, birth announcements, and info about pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, and so much more: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Northeast-Mississippi-Birthing-Project/131521062848

Baby Mariah welcomes you back and hopes that you'll stay a while!
