Birth Circle Meetings

What is ‘Birth Circle’?

The Birth Circle is a safe, nonjudgmental forum to share experiences, ask questions, connect with members of the local birth community, or just to listen and be a part of the experience. We are working toward the goal of empowering women and families to take control of their birth experience, to provide them with caring support, sound guidance, and evidence-based information, and to create a safe place for encouragement, healing and connection.
