Positive Birth Movement Meetings

Join our facebook group here!

What: A Positive Birth Group is any birth discussion group that holds a woman’s right to a positive birth experience to be of fundamental importance. I want to create an opportunity for women from all walks of life to come together and share their positive birth experiences and positive birth information. It’s about providing a space for open discussion, a place where women can empower each other to approach birth differently and to expect and enjoy a positive birth - whatever that means to them.

When: 3rd Wednesday of the month.
Where: Dr. Christopher's Herb Shop. 188 S. Main Street in Springville
Time: 6:30 p.m.
Next Meeting: Wednesday, April 17th 6:30 p.m.
Cost: Zip, zilch, absolutely no cost!

Ever since I heard about this grassroots movement, I have been just a-c-h-i-n-g for the opportunity to jump on board and help in the cause! Well, the time has come, and I couldn't be more thrilled! Anyone is welcome to attend. As stated above, this is created to give women the opportunity to hear POSITIVE birth talk. Positive does not, however, mean "perfect, non-medical, natural, vaginal, uneventful, or surgery free." Positive means that a woman is where she wants to be, that she is honored and supported in her choices, and that elements of the experience are what she wants them to be.

All births have beautiful elements to them. This group is about celebrating those elements in a supportive non-judgmental environment! We hear too many negative birth stories from day to day. Let's come together to talk about the good stuff! I sincerely hope you will join us. Join our facebook group here to get regular updates on meeting times and also to let us know if you are coming!
