I went to a very enjoyable event last night: the opening of my birth educator's new studio! I have raved before about Cynthia Overgard's Hypnobirthing of CT- both she and her birth class are an invaluable source of information, inspiration and support. Cynthia's new studio in Westport is spacious (and gorgeous) so she can more easily accomodate classes and events... AND it's across from the Whole Foods. Does it get any better than that?
The ICAN event is being held at the Eileen Fisher Offices in Irvington NY from 6-9:30. I WISH I could attend this but my baby cries in the car after 6pm and that's just too long of a drive for me to hear my baby cry. (I always think, she got a good nap, maybe she won't cry on the way home from this party/event... nope, screaming, hyperventilating, choking, sobbing. Pathetic.) If you are interested in birth and many of the current issues surrounding it, I can highly recommend this ICAN event. Nancy is a very engaging speaker and I'm bummed I can't go hear her.
I had midwife care for my second pregnancy and birth and let me just say, it was worth the 45 minutes I had to drive (across the Tappan Zee) to every appointment. There is also an excellent CPM, Joni Stone, in New Haven if you want to save yourself the bridge toll.
