About the Event
Our theme for this circle is: Early Birth
I think it is crucial to remember that miscarriage or termination is a birth event—sometimes a very, very, very early birth event, but reproductively speaking that is what it is!
Since we don’t have a better vocabulary for pregnancy loss in our culture, socioculturally speaking we tend to class it as “something else” but in most ways it isn’t. A egg touches down in a woman’s womb. Her hormones and all other physiological systems are impacted and feel its presence.
The embryo or baby stays for a time and when it leaves her body, the uterus must contract and the cervix must open and the woman’s body must open to allow its passage. Her body, mind, emotions, and spirit are all affected. In this way, early birth and full-term birth simply exist on a continuum of possible birth outcomes and are all birth events whether the pregnancy lasts five weeks or forty-two weeks.
We will join in circle to ground ourselves, meditate, journal, share and connect.
