May 2017 News & Events

Good Afternoon Everyone,

Our May is full of great events for the whole family! We are coming off an incredibly successful Pregnancy & Baby Fair and would like to take a moment to thank all of you for coming out last Saturday to visit with us! We had a great time and hope you did too!
Below you will find information about our programming for May, including our monthly meeting which commemorates the reason The Birth Circle exists in the first place–to share our birth stories. Call or email us with any questions, suggestions for meeting topics, or anything else that you would like to share. We hope you have a marvelous month and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Claudia Bashaw
Executive Director, The Birth Circle


Big thanks to our 2017 Pregnancy & Baby Fair sponsors for making our event possible!



Monday May 22nd


Chauncey Park in Chauncey (opposite side of the railroad tracks from RT 13)
Are you a young mom who would like to spend some time learning and socializing with other young moms and their children? Open to all younger moms old and new, so if you were under 22 year of age when you had your first child, then come join us and share your experiences as a young mom. Come join us for a fun time learning, sharing and playing. We’ll even have a craft to do and some food to eat! We can’t wait to see you!

Wednesday, May 31st
From 7:00 to 8:30pm
At the Athens Public Library

Every year we dedicate one meeting to the sharing of birth stories. Whether your children were born last week or a decade ago, we invite you to share your story or just sit and listen to others. All backgrounds, experiences and choices are honored at all Birth Circle events.
