Spring calendar

Some events to mark down for this coming season:

Planned Parenthood's Sexual & Reproductive Health Training Calendar. They have a great assortment of classes that touch on a wide variety of topics including youth, HIV/AIDS and advocacy. I'm considering the Birth Control Options and the Facilitation workshop.

Wednesday, April 8th @ 7:30pm:
ALL MY BABIES at the Anthology Film Archives. This sounds so lovely:
"Mrs. Mary Frances Coley, an African-American midwife in Georgia, demonstrates her skill and loving kindness in a 1952 film...Currently active midwives will be present to discuss their struggle to preserve their profession against the assaults of other branches of medicine."

Tuesday, May 5th @ 6:30pm: Well-Woman Care During Pregnancy, Labor & Delivery and Postpartum at the Brooklyn Central Library.
"Homeopathy, acupuncture, natural herbs and nutrition are gentle, non-invasive and effective ways to relieve situations that range from physical ailments such as heartburn, nausea and constipation - all the way to emotional anxiety , easing the birth process and postpartum trauma and depression."
