I had a fabulous weekend with women & their nurslings coming in from several different states for a Birth & Babies Bed & Breakfast get-together. We also watched a screening of The Business of Being Born. Now the house is so silent and empty with everyone gone.
Most of the audience stayed for the discussion after the film--we had lively conversations about VBAC bans, the disappearing art of vaginal breech birth, how to find midwives in midwife-unfriendly states, and how to bring about changes in our current maternity care system. The discussion carried on for several more hours at my house.
We also did made birth art with silk painting and learned how to make jewelry.
On Friday night, the dinner conversation must have been quite exciting because Zari fell asleep right in the middle of eating.
More pictures forthcoming, once other attendees send me theirs! Many thanks to everyone for coming from so far away. We had women from Iowa, Arizona, Missouri, Connecticut, and Michigan!
