Trust Birth @ Charlie Parker Pottery

The Village Birth Circle [Link] describes itself as a " community, dedicated to supporting mothers, families and intuitive maternity care. The group provides education, assistance and support for pregnant mothers and families". It was founded by Katrina Hollon, LM, Toni Belange Shelby, RN, Laura Irmis, AAHCC, and Lisa Russell. 

It was hosted at Charlie Parker's Pottery Studio [Link], a spacious building, with three long and wide sections in which pottery classes are held, work shown and Parker does his own work. The show Trust Birth embodied body painting, belly dancing, artwork, and information focused on childbirth.

l to r, Katrina Hollon, Charlie Parker, and Ashley.

I spoke with Katrina Hollon and Ashley, who explained the mission of the Village Birth Circle and the nature of the show.

I got there too late for the belly dancing or painting, but even at that hour, the turnout for the event was very good. The art was all about birth, babies, mothers the whole experience. A few pictures...

Congratulations to all the artists, participants, Katrina Hollon, Charlie Parker and their crews for a great event.
