Do you have plans for October 24th? Are you expecting a baby, thinking about making a baby or have a new baby? Birth Unlimited and Dr For Moms present the Maternity Care Providers Fair October 24 from 10-4 at Pineridge Community Association!! Its a $5 entry...or you can get in for free by purchasing tickets to the keynote speech by Gina Crosley-Corocan, The Feminist Breeder at 6 PM.
Come out and meet photographers, doulas, massage therapists, chiropractors, NDs, non-profits organizations and more!! There will be short talks happening all day...including my "Top 10 Things to Know Before Baby Arrives" at 3:30! There are door prizes and swag bags for the first 200 people!
Gina's keynote talk will cover key vocabulary and language important to defining and understanding birth in the context of feminism. Audience members will be asked to participate in this interactive dialogue about the challenges and opportunities facing birth advocates against the backdrop of our modern culture.
Birth Unlimited is a non-profit, consumer organization supporting families seeking healthy alternatives so they can make the most informed choices during the childbearing year and beyond. We support the rights of families to access a full range of birth place options - from hospital to birth centre to home birth - with a full range of professional caregivers - including funded midwifery care. Our goal is to assist families in the quest to educate and inform themselves about their options. Birth Unlimited publishes Birthing Magazine three times per year. I am a board member for the organization and we are always looking for volunteers!
I hope to see you at the events!
With Love & Light,
