Ina May is Coming! Ina May is Coming!

In case you missed the big announcement, the Tarrant County Birth Network is bringing Ina May Gaskin to Fort Worth July 13-14!  We have so many fun events planned while she is here and there are still a few tickets available if you haven't gotten them yet.  This link will give you lots of info about getting tickets, addresses, times, etc.

Dinner with Ina May:
We have an intimate dinner in Ina May's honor being held at Reata on Friday night at 5:30.  These sponsor tickets are $185.  The money raised helped pay our fees to bring Ina May to Fort Worth.  Trust me, she will be treated very well while she is with us.  If you would like to sponsor Ina May's visit and enjoy dinner at Reata with a handful of people -- including Ina May -- there are just a few tickets left, closing Tuesday night, or until sold out.  Buy here.

Book Signing/Meet & Greet:   
On Saturday morning at 10:30, we have a special treat for the members of the Tarrant County Birth Network.  They can purchase a variety of Ina May's books at the event (proceeds benefit TCBN) and have Ina May sign their book.  We will also have a photo opportunity at this time.  Membership of TCBN begins at $25 for a Birth Advocate.  Join TCBN here.  To participate in the book signing -- other than being a TCBN member -- it is free, but you must have a ticket.  Get your ticket here.

FREE Public Speaking Event:  
Come hear Ina May speak on Maternal Mortality on Saturday afternoon at 3:30.  There are 500 tickets available and they are nearly gone.  Get your ticket here.  Without getting too technical, the earlier you arrive, the better wristband you'll get to sit closer.  Walk-ins will be seated at 3:10, so if you have a ticket, you'll need to be there before 3:10.  

There is some down time between the Book Signing and the Speaking Event to grab lunch and check out the vendors and a portion of The Art of Birth exhibit.  Bring your girlfriends and come hang out with us!  Birth Boot Camp will have a booth too!  Come browse through the workbook and check out some of our online classes.

There have also been t-shirts made with the (optional) line on the back "Ask me about sphincter law".  Shirts are $26 or $28.50 depending on if you want the back of the shirt.  They will be available for purchase at the event. 

We are so honored to bring Ina May to Fort Worth.  She truly is the Mother of Modern Midwifery.
