October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, and BIPOC for a Better Birth is hosting a free painting class to help BIPOC families who have experienced these losses.
Their Painting, Loss, and Remembrance Workshop will be held October 15th from 1 to 4 p.m. at Phillips Recreation Center. The event is free, kid-friendly, and breastfeeding-friendly.
Participants will be led by an instructor, and there will also be an opportunity for people to share their stories if they feel compelled to do so.
There are still spots available. You can register for the class here.
The BIPOC for a Better Birth mission statement:
BIPOC for Better Birth is a grassroots organization that addresses the unique needs of Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) who continue to face disproportionately poor pregnancy and birth outcomes while creating pathways to better reproductive experiences by raising awareness, building community, and supporting the efforts of birthworkers like doulas, midwives, lactation specialists, and herbalists who recognize the intersection of racism and medicalized childbirth.
