Birth Circle

What is Birth Circle?

A Birth Circle is an informational, inspirational, fun event where parents and parents-to-be come to talk about birth in a safe environment, without judgment.  Most people who have given birth don't typically get an opportunity to share the positive and even not-to-positive aspects of their birth story (natural, medicated, Cesarean, hospital, birth center or homebirth) with others who are there JUST TO HEAR THE STORY...come share your story with others who really want to hear it!  

This event is open to people who are pregnant, have given birth (ever!) or those who might someday--or if your partner doesn't plan to give birth but identifies as a woman they are also welcome.  Birth workers also welcome.

While of course, there may be some negative parts to your story which you are welcome to share, Birth Circles is not a place to try to fully process your traumatic birth but feel free to tell your story and also consider calling one or more of the specialists for mental health listed on the Resources page of this website.

Birth Circles tend to include laughter, questions, learning, inspiration and lots of listening. 

Babies welcome as long as they are quiet (or your mic is on mute!).

 

What is the Cost?

FREE during this stay-at-home time!  (typically this is an in-person event that costs $10 to attend)

Registration is not required but VERY APPRECIATED!!!! It's quick and free, thanks for doing it by clicking the link below! 

Of course, since it's free, if you register and don't end up being able to attend, that's fine...BUT if you need to come in late, that's also fine! Just please be sure to keep your video ON for a minute or so after you join so your facilitator can see you and ensure that you change your name so we know who you are.  Thanks!
