BIRTH STORY SHARE CIRCLE AND WRITING SESSION NOVEMBER
Description: In a facilitated circle, co-founder of Carriage House Birth and seasoned doula, Domino Kirke-Badgley will open the space for individuals and families to share their birth experiences. At CHB we believe the act of telling and listening to a story plays a powerful role in healing. The event is facilitated very carefully to ensure that pregnant guests feel heard and held. We deeply respect and understand your needs as you share.
Whether you are healing from a traumatic birthing experience or are feeling ecstatic about how your birth went, we can all benefit from a container being held for us to share safely and in a supported space. Recovering from a birth experience can feel incredibly isolating. You can have feelings of confusion and grief, no matter the outcome, and we have found that this circle is exactly the kind of ritual that our society lacks.
Aim: Our goal for the workshop is to have each participant leave feeling connected and cared for with potentially a new perspective on your experience, and certainly more community who might relate to your story.
Expect: Sharing of each participant is optional, and when undertaken, is well guided. We will also ask you to be mindful of allowing all in circle to have equal time of about 10 minutes. There will be an opportunity for guided reflection and writing of your story throughout the workshop.
Bring: Bring something to drink and eat. Bring a partner or a loved one.
