Birth can be a magnificent, empowering and overwhelmingly positive experience, but it can also be frustrating, disappointing or traumatic and that can leave a lot of strong emotions behind.
DoulaC.A.R.E. invites you to join us at 7pm on May 11th, 2012 at Dufferin Grove Park for BirthFire. This is an event, in honour of International Doula Month, for letting go of any negativity related to birth. We invite everyone – moms, dads, partners, children, friends, parents-to-be, midwives, doctors, nurses, doulas – to come and share your fears, your anxieties, bad advice, social pressures, medical practices, cultural attitudes or disappointing experiences related to birth by burning them in the fire. You can speak about your experiences or fears if you wish, keep them to yourself as you let them burn or simply come to support others with your presence. You do not need to have given birth or attended births to participate.
We ask that anything you bring to put in the fire be safe and non-toxic to burn.
For more information, check out the website or contact me directly.
