Look What TCBN is Doing NOW!
NEXT TCBN MEETING:
Fear not! You did not miss the vaccination meeting for the Tarrant County Birth Network! It is this Thursday, March 31. We moved our meeting place and day so there has been some confusion. Please check the TCBN website for details. Just a reminder though: Meetings will be held on the last Thursday of the month, not the fourth Thursday. There are a few more of those this year, too.
We are expecting a large turnout for this next meeting. Drs. Jim Bob and Cindy Haggerton will be addressing us on vaccinations. There is so much conflicting information out there and I think a lot of us are quite confused. Our pediatricians, and family doctors, are telling us one thing, but we've all read enough resources to know that there are potential risks associated with vaccinations. This is a great meeting to bring your husband, but again, as always, lap babies only. Thanks so much for your cooperation. No one has put up a fuss over this "rule" and we know it is an inconvenience for many of you. We appreciate so many of our TCBN dads that stay home and put kids to bed so moms can attend our monthly meetings.
THE ART OF BIRTH:
A BOLD FORT WORTH RED TENT EVENT
I put this up here on my blog a few weeks ago but didn't say much about it. Have you studied our logo? Have you figured out what it is? Yes! It's a placenta! Our producer of BOLD Fort Worth and TCBN Chapter Leader, Shannon Blackwell, has a bit-of-an-odd obsession with placentas and she came up with this logo. We all love it so much, we are printing the cutest black fitted tees! Visit our website to buy one for yourself!
The Art of Birth is a mixed media art and performance show, in addition to spoken birth stories. Come see birth photography, belly casts, sculpture, henna, live art, and dance -- all celebrating this life-changing event called birth.
The t-shirts will be available for purchase the day of the event, as well as a book TCBN is printing consisting of birth stories of women who have birth in and around Tarrant County. Let us know if you'd like to make the book available to your friends or clients by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Art of Birth will take place on Saturday, April 30 from 11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. It is a free event being held at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center at 1300 Gendy Street, Fort Worth 76107.
If you have birth-related artwork you would like to display, please contact BOLD Forth Worth at email@example.com. Likewise, if you'd like to share your birth story, please contact us at the same email or call (682) 710-BOLD.
We are looking forward to sharing with the community how wonderful birth can be though The Art of Birth. See you there!
