Blessing of the Birth Keepers
December 14th 2019
Conception, pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, weaning:
As birth keepers, we live our lives by powerful natural cycles in others’ lives. But we often neglect our own.
This December, as we approach the Winter Solstice and the end of the year, we will gather with other birth keepers for a ceremony to process all the beautiful things and hard things that the cycle of 2019 has brought to our own lives.
The ceremony will include a chance to process your experiences internally and in community. We will celebrate the wonder and wisdom that 2019 included, and we will include a ceremony of release so that we leave feeling stronger and lighter than we felt when we arrived.
The event is being created and hosted in cooperation with Sally Parrott of Copenhagen Lactation and Karina Isolde and Louise of Copenhagen Doulas.
All birth-related workers are welcome to attend:
midwives, nurses, doulas, IBCLCs, pelvic physical therapists, perinatal yoga instructors, obstetricians, infant and maternal bodyworkers, etc. Our connections to each other strengthen us.

Opening the Circle: Midwife’s Invocation & Group Introductions
