Workshop will be held at:
A Brighter Birth & toLabor Center
112 North Boulevard
Richmond VA 23220
Saturday 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Our birth stories are wonderful mementos for our children and important processing for ourselves. Birth stories reveal joy, strength, fear, disappointment, regret, peace, empowerment, and almost every other emotion on the human spectrum. Join doula and writing teacher Sarah Allen-Short for a three-hour workshop intended to help you write and your birth story. We will use the tool of writing to explore our experiences and memorialize them, with all the complexity and power that these stories so often imbue. These workshops are co-sponsored by toLabor and Life in 10 Minutes.
Once you register, details will be sent to you. In-person classes are held in Richmond, VA in the fan. Feel free to take more than one class if you have more than one birth to write about. If you're interested in writing your birth story but are not available on these days, let us know and we will consider new times for the fall.
