Hello, Birth Circle Families!

We have an exciting and festive month ahead of us here at The Birth Circle!  Our Pregnancy & Baby Fair is happening on Saturday the 23rd and will include the Great Cloth Diaper Change this year!  Since we like to focus our energy on this fun, family event there will be NO MONTHLY MEETING THIS MONTH.  We will gather once again for a meeting in May.
We are gearing up for our 4th Prepared Mommy Camp and already have several young women signed up to join us this June for the week-long program which focuses on education and support of these young moms-to-be as they journey toward parenthood.  If you would like to contribute your time, donate baby-related items, contribute to our book drive, or help in another way please let us know at athensbirthcircle@gmail.com or call 740-652-6262.  The book drive will provide books for the children of the young moms who participate in Prepared Mommy Camp this June. If you want to make a donation to the book drive, please click on the link below.  We’re excited for another opportunity to extend our community of support to these young women, and we’re thankful for your help in doing so!

In the meantime please join us tomorrow for our Play Group, and we will be holding our Loss Support Group in the evening. See below for details on all of our April events and we look forward to seeing you all soon!
