BloomBars and the Village Birth Co-op host a screening and discussion on birth choice. The Face of Birth: Where the Personal Gets Political (2012, 90 min - view trailer), by Gavin Banks and Kate Gorman, is a documentary about families that choose to give birth at home, and about respecting and protecting a woman's right to choose how, where and with whom she gives birth.  Read more about the film on the invite. The screening will be followed by a discussion with natural childbirth advocates from the DC Metropolitan region, moderated by doula-in-training, Tsedaye Makonnen. They will discuss the importance of encouraging expectant mothers and their partners to choose their own birth experiences.

Donations will help to support Village Birth Co-op's Mamatoto Village - starting this fall -  in providing free doula services and support to DC teen moms throughout their pregnancy, birth and postpartum period.
