Joining Forces - The HUG and Operation Special Delivery (OSD)

"My husband's in Iraq. I'm all alone to have this baby...and don't know what I'll do!"

A fundraiser to support women who deliver while their husbands are deployed.

Program provides:
Free doula services and a Free HUG DVD

She wants natural childbirth, but the doctors suggest that a planned c-section might be easier for all.
