February Salon Series: Share your Family’s Story!

Our Salon Series on February 27th will be a storytelling event to celebrate all the wonderful ways families are made.  As Doulas focused on providing nonjudgmental, compassionate and empowering support to people through the full spectrum of their reproductive experiences, we understand the power of story sharing.  Story sharing is often empowering and affirming for the person telling the story and illuminating, educational and affirming for the community receiving the story. 

We are looking for people who want to share the story of how their family was made, specifically stories that are under-represented: Stories of single parents by choice, families with LGBTQI parents, families made by adoption and foster parenting, families who have chosen not to include children, poly familiesfamilies made possible by abortion, etc. 

The event will be hosted at Langton Labs, a co-housing creative space in SOMA just 3 blocks from Civic Center Bart from 7-9pm.  We expect each story teller will have around 10-15 minutes to share their story and then we will allow time after all the stories have been completed for questions and comments from the audience.

Can you join us as a story teller? Please, if you would like to share your story. 

Do you want to tell your story but can’t join us in February, or don’t like public speaking? We would love to share your story as a guest post on our blog.  Please contact Sarah Whedon <> if you have a story to share on the blog.
