Marnellie Bishop (Hānau Doula) is a local Portland area doula and team member with MindTree. As a doula, Marnellie has seen a need for a support group for new and expectant families, specifically west of the Vista Ridge Tunnel. Marnellie will be hosting a new parent group, called the New Parent Power Hour at MindTree’s yoga studio/ event space.
The first meeting is on Tuesday, November 19th from 10:00-11:30 am. The discussion topic for the November 19th meeting will be centered around the first few weeks of bringing baby home and what to expect with regards to postpartum healing, newborn bare and establishing new family norms.
