I am super excited to announce that I'll be coming to the BOLD (Birth on Labor Day) 5th Anniversary event in New York City! Playwright Karen Brody extended a VIP invitation and I couldn't refuse the chance to see her play Birth.
If you've already seen Birth, you'll want to watch it again. Karen rewrote the script and added a birth-- and it's a VBAC!
The 5th Anniversary event will also honor 5 people or organizations who have used the arts to educate pregnant moms about childbirth, including: Debra Pascali-Bonaro for Orgasmic Birth, Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein for The Business of Being Born, Christy Turlington for No Woman, No Cry, Kirsti Kreutzer for Where's My Midwife?, and the White Ribbon Alliance for Play Your Part and Avec Nous. We will also be honoring Ina May Gaskin.
If you live in the area, you can attend the performance with me at the brand-new Museum of Motherhood. If you can't make it to NYC, you can still watch the performance online! It will be webcast live on Labor Day and rebroadcast several times throughout September (Sept 17 & 24 every 5 hours: midnight, 5am, 10am, 3pm, 8pm ET).

I'm also really excited for this weekend, because Eric is coming out with me (and Inga, of course). We will have the entire weekend together without the two older children. We recently had our 13th anniversary and this will be the perfect opportunity to celebrate. I even went shopping and bought a fancy dress :)
