As needed and requested, Al Muslima and Motherhood Birth Service is hosting its first annual Natural Birth Natural Body Conference: “Information = Empowerment” on Friday, May 27, 2011 2:30pm - 7pm & Saturday, May 28, 2011 9:30am - 7pm * at the historic Berean Institute: 1901 West Girard Avenue, Philadelphia PA 19130. This special, two-day conference is for women only and is designed to cater to the specific needs of the Muslim women and Black women in Philadelphia and surrounding communities. For registration or vending information call 215.939.0867. This important event is the first of its kind in Philadelphia and serves as a community educational service and fundraiser for our women and families in need of pre-conceptional, prenatal, postpartum and maternal services.
We live in a world that is ruled by technology. I Phones, I Pads, text messages, tweeting, and updating our stats on face book hold more attention than basic knowledge and awareness of our mental & physical health, the global acceleration of infant mortality and the lack of traditional maternity care. Our communities are lost; Left with little support & knowledge to make changes. This conference is just the beginning! We will bring hope, love, good health, and positive self reflection and education back to our families and our communities!
The conference will feature life changing and informative workshops covering topics such as: the importance of breastfeeding, stress management, wholistic parenting, educating our children, pre & post natal fitness, herbs for mothers & their babies, teen self awareness & building confidence, black beauty image, homebirth, the role of a doula, African dance, non-vaccinating and much more. Our attendees will also enjoy: fine live vegan and halal cuisine, poetry, product sampling, shopping in the sokoni (marketplace), massages, henna body art, love, laughter and social sisterhood. Child care will be available on sight for an additional fee.
Lots of FREE on-street parking available! Registration fees and workshop details can be found at Information=Empowerment - Home or call 215.939.0867.
