2nd annual BIRTHING COUNCIL
Last year 22 people : many pregnant (including myself), birth enthusiasts and birth workers gathered in a gazebo in a sunny orchard. We shared concerns, joys, and resources with one another. Built & strengthened relationships with available support networks for this sacred adventure of pregnancy and postpartum.
Now babies have been born, changes in midwifery care continue, and another round of little fetuses preparing for life.
Its time again to gather, and this time I want to hear the diverse birth stories of 2022-2023 babies from families! I also want to have a moment to collectively hold prayerful space for the currently pregnant folks.
There will be a birth story sign-up in the registration and space day of to jump in if you feel the call.
