The holidays are coming, and You're invited! To a fundraiser for midwives and midwifery work happening at Shanti Uganda.
Please join me this Friday evening at my office. I'll have beautiful necklaces, malas, bracelets, bags (would make an excellent prenatal bag, midwives!), yoga mat bags, iPad covers, and more. These items are hand-made by mothers and Ugandan women, using beautifully-colored African fabrics and upcycled denim.
What: Moonbelly Midwifery fundraiser for midwives of Shanti Uganda
When: Friday, November 18, 2016
Where: Moonbelly Midwifery, located in the Shanti Center, at 700 Dupont St, Bellingham, WA 98225 (little blue craftsman on the corner of Dupont and C St in downtown Bellingham)
Time: 6pm - 9pm
Light refreshments will be served.
See items on their website (colors vary). This is a one-night only event, friends, please come and support the incredible work of these midwives. Hope to see you there...

I have a new office! It is in the Shanti Center for Bodywork and Healing Practitioners at 700 DuPont St in Bellingham, 98225. It's a beautiful, peaceful setting, downtown with ocean breezes and views. A little blue house on the corner of DuPont and C St. I can't wait to show it to you! I look forward to having you here for prenatal and postpartum care. We'll be having our open house soon... stay tuned!
Perhaps one of the best things about this space is the delightful energy co-created by the four women whose offices are at Shanti. I have had the pleasure of receiving each of their healing medicine, and I whole-heartedly recommend their care!
Susanna Alongi, Licensed Massage Practitioner and womb-healing, womb-care goddess
Elizabeth Ruff, Licensed Massage Practitioner and SOMA bodywork practitioner - deep fascia release and movement expert
Melissa Setum, Holistic Skin Care Practitioner, providing deep medicine in this life, perfect for pregnancy and postpartum
Enjoy the pictures below! A special thank you goes to Don Burgess (my sweetheart) who has spent a lot of time helping to fix up my office space...

Moon: Waning half moon in Pisces this afternoon.
Weather: kinda stormy! Windy, some rain, kinda cold, but also beautiful! Yep, it is the Northwest after-all. Call it: Parade Weather!
Notes: This seems like the perfect place to begin: Celebrating Midwives and Celebrating Midwifery in Whatcom County. Among the walkers: eight midwives, at least two student midwives, several midwives' husbands, lotsa doulas and their families, a mother in early labor, and many mothers, fathers, babies... all walking to celebrate midwifery in and around our town. What fun!! Indeed, there is so much to celebrate...
