Good Morning Everyone!
 
Here we are…November, a month full of excitement and gratitude.  In keeping with those themes, The Birth Circle is offering a month of really great events, including our monthly meeting about postpartum recovery.  See below for more details about this meeting, as well as information about our Play Group and Loss Support Group.  Also below you will find information on volunteering for JIVE!  This fabulous family-friendly event is on the horizon and we’re excited for another fun evening of celebration!
The season of giving is upon us and we would love to have your help.  Every few years we put out an Impact Survey which helps us gauge your wants and needs, and helps us stay relevant in our community.  We would love to hear from you, so please consider taking this short survey by following the link provided below.
 
In the spirit of the season, we hope that you will consider donating to The Birth Circle.  Your support helps us offer important programming and resources to families in our community, for free.  It’s easy to donate and since we’re a charitable non-profit, your support is tax-deductible–it’s a win for both of us!  You can mail in your donation (see address below) or you can follow this link for a safe and secure way to donate online.  We are incredibly thankful for your support!
 
We hope you have a wonderful November and we look forward to seeing you at one of our events this month.  Thank you!!
 
Warmly,

OUR POSTPARTUM BODIES:  PELVIC FLOOR & ABDOMINAL RECOVERY AFTER CHILDBIRTH
Wednesday, November 30th
***this meeting falls during the week AFTER Thanksgiving***
7:00 to 8:30pm
At the Athens Public Library

Our bodies work hard during pregnancy and childbirth, and sometimes there’s more to recover from than we were expecting.  Join physical therapists Angel Thomas, PT, OCS and Allison Barnett, PT of OhioHealth to learn more about common postpartum diagnoses such as pelvic pain, incontinence and diastasis recti.  They will also share helpful tips to manage these including some exercises to help you recover.  Bring your questions and experiences to share!
