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.>>

Several of our chapter members including myself have attended Juji's birth story workshop in the past and found it to be very useful in processing our past births. Here is the rundown of the dates and locations:

10/7 7:00 p.m. Christian Temple Christian Church, 5820 Edmondson Ave, Catonsville, MD 21228 (Baltimore County). To register email Barbara [email protected]

10/17 9:30 a.m.-12 p.m., 1301 Motter Avenue, Frederick MD 21701. To register call Julie 301-662-7409 or [email protected]

10/29 6:00 p.m., Abingdon YMCA, 101 Walter Ward Blvd, Abingdon, MD 21009 (Harford County). To register call Mary Beth 717-456-7727 or email [email protected]

11/14 12:30 -3:00 p.m. Center for Healing Arts, 112 East Main St., Westminster, MD 21157 (Carroll County). To register call Tina 410-552-0558 or email [email protected]

No sorry, our grant was to have the workshops in Maryland and we selected the four areas based on where volunteers stepped up to be regional coordinators. You could always look up the Birthing From Within website and see where the closest mentor is to you and inquire as to when her next workshop is planned for although of course it won't be free : (

About 2 1/2 hours. Normally ICAN events welcome children of all ages but for this workshop the facilitator is very careful about creating a healing space and so bringing multiple kids isn't conducive to that. I do have an email into her however to find out about young nursing/attached babies.
