Write Your Birth Story

Writing Your Birth Story NashvilleI cherish my daughters’ birth stories because they are *our* stories, each one an epic tale of mother and daughter meeting for the first time. My daughters love to hear about their birth days — those sacred events that led to their arrival earthside. I love birth stories, too, so much so that I created a book of them, and created a special section for them here on the {breathe, mama} blog.

But I’ll be the first to admit that a birth story isn’t easy to write!

That’s why I’m offering a new workshop, Writing Your Birthing Story.

{sign up for the birth story workshop below!}

My writer-yogini friend Alisa  created this workshop to give mamas time to reconnect with and process the events and emotions of birth, and she’s kindly extended her blessing and her guidance to me to offer the workshop here in the South.

Please make plans to join me for an easy introductory yoga practice and a writing session dedicated to your birthing story.

Friday, November 15 in Nashville TN ~ Register by Sunday, November 10th! 

Here’s the scoop:

The story of how you birthed your baby is something you and your little one can treasure forever. The act of writing your birthing story can help you process the emotions of that experience. The highs and lows, the tears and sighs, the joys and challenges, moments poignant and funny — they all help define the day that you and your baby first met.

Whether or not you think of yourself as a writer, this is your story to tell, and this workshop offers a safe and sacred space to capture the details of your birthing day (or days!). This workshop is for moms of all ages, and this writing is just for you – no sharing required. We’ll begin with a light, easy yoga practice to open your heart to the memories of your birthing experience, and then cover some writing tips to help your story flow with vivid detail.

You’re welcome to bring photos, your headphones and mp3 player to listen to your birth playlist, or other treasures to help bring back the memories of the day. After writing, we’ll return to our mats to honor and thank our bodies for creating and nurturing life. Bring a journal and a pen that lets the ink flow, or your laptop. The session will include light snacks and drinks. $35/mama.
