Postponed: Feminine Wisdom: Positive, empowering birth stories
In popular media, the birth narrative is often a fearful one, but traditionally knowledge of childbirth has been passed down from woman to woman. Childbirth is a powerful, transforming experience. Do you have a positive or beautiful birth story you’d be willing to share? Wisdom or insights to pass on? Or do you just want to come hear a good birth story? Please join us. Facilitated by Caitlin Kilpatrick, childbirth educator and owner of Childbirth Edification.
