"At least you had a healthy baby!”
If you’ve ever felt as though there is more to your birth story than the outcome, then consider participating in a birth story circle. This workshop is an opportunity for you to gather with a small group of women and participate in the process of giving words to the breathtaking – and sometimes overwhelming – experience of welcoming a tiny human into the world.
If your birth did not go as expected, then sharing your story can be healing. If you had the birth you’d always dreamed of, then sharing your story can be a celebration and encouragement to other mothers.
As a Swedish Proverb states, “Shared joy is double joy and shared sorrow is half sorrow.”
