Birth Circle

Our Birth Circle meets on the first Monday of each month at 6:30 pm at Women’s Health at Robinwood, Suite 249 (Blue Entrance), 11110 Medical Campus Road, Hagerstown, Maryland. Anyone who is due to give birth or who has recently given birth is welcome, as is anyone with an interest in birth and parenting, including birth professionals or professionals who work with pregnant women and new families. Part of each gathering is set aside for socializing and informal discussion, and part is devoted to a short presentation or discussion on a specific topic.
