Do you have a birth story to tell?
"Women of the Earth, Take Back Your Birth" We want to hear your birth stories - the momentary pleasures, pains, traumas and triumphs as you made your way through the birth spiral. We especially want to hear from women who danced and sang out their babies, rebelled against convention, made art, made love, experienced orgasmic birth, unassisted birth, water birth or birth outside in nature. We also want activist stories speaking out against the violence done to women's bodies by an overmedicalized, corporatized hospital system. We want your story, the raw and honest truth. We want to combine the stories of many strong Mothers into a powerful oral herstory that foregrounds women's natural birthing instincts, hormonal thresholds of pleasure, and spiritual power quotient. We want you to bring your sisters, mothers, grandmothers, partners, sons and daughters to this important community forum and rebirth ritual. Let's weave our stories into song, poem and speech form.
