Pregnant in the City: Empowering Pregnant Women
Pregnancy and giving birth can be overwhelming enough but add in adapting to life in Israel and learning Hebrew, women feel they are losing control over one of the most empowering and enriching experiences of their life.
Pregnant in the City is here to help and support these women by providing Israel-specific information on pregnancy such as navigating the Israeli health system from preconception to post birth. Other services offered by Pregnant in the City include hospital tours in English, assistance and connections to the whole range of birth options.
Pregnant in the City is the inspiration of Leanne Kaye and Sharon Kastoriano. While working with pregnant women in their respective roles as child birth educator and acupuncturist, they recognized a need to provide their clients, many of whom are new to Israel, with information about the pros and cons of all the possibilities available for pregnant women in this country to help them create an informed and therefore, better birth experience.
