So here I am, thrilled to my toes to share news about the Carolina Birth Junkies 2019 Summer Island Retreat, August 22-25!
The first two days will hold the eagerly sought after Breech Birth Workshop conducted by Dr. Rixa Freeze of Stand and Deliver and Dr. David Hayes, an honest-to-goodness homebirth OB/GYN!
The third day will feature the renown and well-loved Anne Frye, midwife and author of Holistic Midwifery Volumes One and Two, Understanding Diagnostic Texts for the Childbearing Year, and Healing Passage!
In addition to these stand-out individuals, Tracy Winsor and Judy Townsend of Be Not Afraid will be sharing with us on the subject of bereavement sensitivity, Julie Jetzer of Corrective Core will be teaching us Pelvic Floor Care, and Robyn Briggs will host a Red Tent through the third and fourth days. I’m ridiculously nervous to say it out loud, but I’ll be there with my books and to share on the topic of True Midwifery Skills!
Be sure to sign up just as soon as you can as early bird pricing last only through March 14! It looks like there will be lots of fun things to do at the retreat besides expand our knowledge!
I’m sure I made it obvious by the photograph I selected for this post I’m beyond excited about the Breech Birth Workshop portion of the gathering. The picture was taken by Blanca González of blancasphotos.com, and I first stumbled over it around the time Megan and Paul gave birth to my grandson, Brent, footling breech in the summertime of 2017. This image captures exactly what Hannah and I saw as little Brent began making his incredible exit. Thank you, Blanca, with all my heart for allowing me to use it ♥
Okay! See you there!!!
