“It's been about 5 years since we've celebrated as a community. Let's reconnect with old friends and meet new ones on March 12. Be inspired and revitalize your homebirth spirit when you listen to our guest speaker, the awesome Dr. Sarah Buckley! Enhance the community by sharing information; build new relationships; dance to the rhythms of home grown beats or watch the tribal dancing of Lilobao and the Serpentine Dancers. A scrumptious dinner, music, and dancing - what better way to bring a community together?!” Hollie Singleton, HMA Convenor

Please note all funds go to the Home Midwifery Association in support of homebirth choices and keeping your local support groups active.
