As many of you already know, ICAN of Baltimore was awarded a grant from the Lamaze International in order to hold four Birthing From Within Healing Birth Story Workshops in various areas of the state this year.
I am happy to announce that the workshop dates and locations have finally been set! See information below regarding dates/times/locations and contact numbers for registration. The workshops are free to participants but registration is limited to eight women at each event. We expect these workshops to fill up quickly so if you are interested in attending one make sure you book your spot as soon as possible.
The workshop facilitator is ICAN professional level subscriber and Birthing From Within mentor Juji Woodring. Here is a description of the workshop:
<<Healing Birth Story Workshop
Come experience the transformative power of birth story for women.
This free workshop is for women who are hungry for a space to talk about their birth in a real way. If you aren’t happy with your birth, for whatever reason, this workshop is for you. Perhaps you’re still struggling to really be heard about how hard it was for you; perhaps, you’re still trying to make sense of what happened; or perhaps you just want to feel good about yourself as a mother and have been worried about how your birth might have affected your relationship with your child. This workshop will give you the opportunity to begin to see your birth and yourself with love, so that you are prepared to move on to be even more fully alive as a mother and woman. The workshop will include the opportunity for sharing and introspective exercises.>>
