The Alaska Native Birthworkers Community hosts a virtual talking circle every other Saturday from 11AM-12PM! If you are looking to build community while pregnant, trying to get pregnant, breastfeeding, parenting, adoption, healing from pregnancy or infant loss, or closely supporting someone in any one of these phases of life, please join us! All events are posted on our Facebook page.
This is a safe space for conversation and community. Indigenous birth workers will be present to answer any questions or if you need guidance in any part of your preconception, prenatal and postpartum wellness. Please share this event on your timeline for relatives to see and join.
