Hello Everyone!
 
Our Monthly Meeting is this Wednesday and we are setting our sights on snuggling in with those that we care about. Our topic Baby & Child Wearing fits the bill as we call on local community experts (i.e. veteran moms and dads) to show us the ropes and share the reasons why “wearing baby” can work for you and your family. We hope that you will join us for this fun and enlightening meeting.
 
NEWSFLASH!!

Hello Everyone and Happy February!

In this season of love and appreciation for one another, we set our sights on snuggling in with those that we care about. Our monthly meeting on Baby & Child Wearing fits the bill as we call on local community experts (i.e. veteran moms and dads) to show us the ropes and share the reasons why “wearing baby” can work for you and your family. We hope that you will join us for this enlightening meeting.  In the meantime, we would love to see you and your family at our monthly Playgroup for some socializing and fun.

This evening is our monthly Loss Support Group meeting as well, and we hope that you will join us and share your loving thoughts and experiences of the little ones in our community whose lives were all too brief.

If you would like to support the Birth Circle’s various programs and groups, including our Loss Resources, you can do so in several ways. You can learn more about these opportunities by following this link or by clicking on the “Support the Birth Circle” tab on our website.  We sincerely appreciate your contributions and generosity!

Have a wonderful week and we hope to see you all soon!
