Organizing a week's worth of BOLD events has knocked me out! I haven't been eating and sleeping like I should, which got me sick for a little more than a week

I had been sort of winding down until Thursday night.....
I showed up to one of the rehearsals and was just completely WOW'ed!!!! I met this amazonian nubian goddess of a woman who plays a strong mama character.

Picture this: I walk into the room and she is on all fours roaring her baby out! I had to do a double take, lol. It was just as great the second time and I laughed with the project co-coordinator about how we both stood in the back of the room suppressing the urge to push right along with her. I was transported to Dec. 25th, 2006 where I birthed my son on all fours next to my bed - pushing for hours.....

Next, I witnessed a lovely latina woman who tells the story of her care providers who insist that her baby is not "britch" and that this first time mom doesn't know a thing. It was my story all over, really. To do over, I would never have insisted upon an ultrasound to check for breech I couldn't suppress a giggle when the poor mama gleefully announced "I told you so!!!"

All the exhaustion melted away when I witnessed these women giving the rehearsals their ALL - sweaty brows and hoarse voices. It's a diverse, real cast of women who tell REAL stories - yours is in there, I promise. It's going to be a hell of a show and I hope none of you miss it

It was. I was unable to attend the forum or play but the expo was fun and I had a good time talking with the midwife who was at the exhibit in the theatre. Looking forward to next weekend at the UU church.

Lucky wife to DH and mom to DS (10/02) and sweet DD (7/08) and DSD (3/93) and assorted animalia

Great! So glad you enjoyed I most enjoyed the forum and the midwifery exhibit. I loved hearing the audience laugh and respond to parts of the play as I chased my littles around the lobby

The midwifery exhibit was also shown last evening at the Trustus screening of Orgasmic Birth - we'll be showing the film again this Saturday: http://www.boldaboutbirth.com/?page_id=21

I am getting ready now to scoot over to Lexington Medical Center's Doula Celebration from 6 - 8 pm.

Soooo looking forward to Saturday too. The ICAN Chapter made home-made post-partum moon pads for sale and we have some other things to share.

We are also expecting a great turn-out for the father's forum and Janel Martin, the producer of "The Other Side of the Glass" will be with us, as well.

There will be a nursery provided and a vendor for lunch.

See You all there!!!!
