Birth Circle!!! Where to begin....
I started a birth trauma support group called "Taking Birth Back - Women Supporting Women" in October 2012. I felt led to start this group because I didn't have the community support during my VBAC pregnancy that I needed. I had the amazing support from my husband and doula, but that wasn't enough. After my successful VBAC in August 2012, I knew something had to be done. We started out meeting at different houses once a month.
IT. WAS. AWESOME.
The group eventually turned into a Birth Circle. We started having new mommies come to our meetings and tell their awesome birth stories! So instead of having the group exclusively about birth trauma, we decided to include all pregnant, new mommies, experienced mommies, and so on.
Birth Circle is on the third Thursday of every month from 7:00 - 9:00 pm. We meet EITHER at the Hampton Library in Bridgehampton (2478 Main Street, Bridgehampton, NY 11932) OR the Hampton Bays Library (52 Ponquogue Ave, Hampton Bays, NY 11946). This flip flopping between the two libraries allows women from the EAST and WEST to join us. There are many of us that come to every meeting, because it's just too good to pass up!
