The Birth Circle
Kirsten Kowalski-Lane of Florence, MA writes:
The Massachusetts Friends of Midwives (MFOM) is hosting a statewide program of Birth Circle meetings for pregnant women to meet with women who have already birthed with midwives.
The Birth Circle is a meeting of like-minded moms interested in sharing support, information and personal experiences about pregnancy & birth. Each meeting begins with a positive hospital/birth center birth and a positive home birth story. After the stories, discussion topics will be based on the pregnancy and parenting questions of the group. So if you’re a mom-to-be who plans on birthing with a midwife, come join our Birth Circle and discuss diverse birth stories with inspirational women!
Because birth can often be a very vulnerable topic, women need a private, quiet place for discussion with no distractions. We therefore please ask that the Birth Circle should be a babes-in-arms only event. We also ask that midwives who attend should do so as fellow moms, not as midwives, so that they can also benefit from the support of this group and its experience.
While this event is free, we ask that you RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if possible, but drop-ins are welcome!
The Northampton Birth Circle is Thursday, July 24 at
Yoga Sanctuary from 7-9:00 PM
