October Monthly Meeting

Birth Support Companions/Doula Birth Circle: October is pregnancy and infant loss awareness month. As birth workers we have the honor of supporting women through loss. We hold space for women to grieve offering support, love, and a place in our hearts. GALS would like to honor you as the one who bears witness by hosting a birth circle: a safe space to share birth stories of grief, loss, healing, whatever truth you need heard.

Please bring: floor pillow or yoga mat, a candle of your choosing, small pieces of paper and pen/pencil. 

Location: 212 E Monroe St Austin TX 78704

*Please note that this time is not intended to be a support group for moms who have lost a baby, rather for the birth workers. If you are a mom who is interested in this type of support group, contact us and we can direct you to those resources*
