Don’t forget that BirthFire – originally scheduled for May 10th, but postponed due to rain – is this Friday, June 14th at 7pm in Dufferin Grove Park. We’ll be at the main campfire site (the one nearest the rink house).

Check out the website for more info. Remember, this is an event for anyone* with an interest in birth, not only those who have given birth themselves. All are welcome, regardless of whether you wish to share something or simply to listen and support others. I hope to see you there!

*We would like to remind expectant mothers that there may be upsetting stories and information shared at this event. No one will be turned away, but we do not encourage pregnant women to attend, out of concern that negative birth stories may adversely affect your mindset as you prepare for your own labour and birth.

BirthFire! This Friday!

Just a quick reminder that BirthFire is this Friday, May 11th at Dufferin Grove Park, from 7-9:30pm.

Whether you want to celebrate your birth experience, let go of negative or unwanted feelings about your birth or birth in general, or just support others, we hope you’ll be there!

This event is open to everyone with an interest in birth.

In honour of International Doula Month, sponsored by doulaC.A.R.E.

BirthFire – May 11th, 2012

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.
