There will be a wonderful day planned for our little one s – no Charge!!!
Well its time begin the labor process on a second, Birth Justice Fair.
A core group has met and decided our theme is : Natural Birth is a human right and saves lives!

We plan to live stream the meeting for those who can’t attend – but only those there in person can vote, or have direct feed back.
Children are most welcome!
