Pineapple Connections: Gathering for Fertility Hiccups
7pm

Pineapple Connections is a free peer to peer "support group" for those dealing with the hiccups of conception. Navigating life while dealing with these struggles can be really challenging, and trying when everyone around you seems to "get it right". Be around others who "get it", and have an idea of what your journey may be like.

This is a safe space for those who have chosen to go through the ART (Assistive Reproductive Technology) route, and for those who have chosen not to. We meet the 3rd Wednesday of each month, at 7pm at Indigo Physiotherapy in Roland Park. Plenty of parking, and wheelchair accessible.

Hosted by Jessie Bernstein of Moksha Massage & Wellness. For questions, please contact Jessie at jessie@mokshasoul.com. You can also find her on Facebook @MokshaSoulMassage.

Positive Birth Movement: Labor Induction
6 - 8pm

Induction in labor is becoming increasingly common and is often top of the list of women's concerns. The aim of this month's topic is to provide a space for women to talk about induction, not to set an agenda either 'for' or 'against' it.

The Positive Birth Movement is a global network of FREE to attend antenatal groups, linked up by social media. PBM connects pregnant women together to share stories, expertise, and positivity about childbirth to challenge the epidemic of negativity and fear that surrounds modern birth and help change birth for the better.

Join the Positive Birth Movement as they meet up, link up and shake up birth! For more information, please visit the PBM Baltimore Chapter Facebook page @PBMBaltimore or contact Odile or Allie at odile@mybirthcompanion.com.

Don't Talk About the Baby: Documentary Screening
6:30pm - 9pm

In honor of Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month, we will be showing this film twice in October 2019.

This documentary explores the culture of shame and silence surrounding miscarriage, stillbirth and infertility. Too many men and women suffer in silence, and this film will be a tool for people to start conversations and spread awareness.

Through expert interviews and personal stories, this documentary thoroughly explores why a woman feels the way she does after a loss, and how her community can support her.

It examines the male voice in fertility and loss, and empowers families to break their silence and start telling their stories.

This film is not a compilation of tragic stories- it's a journey through the different aspects of the cultural taboos, and a tool for navigating loss and infertility.

We will have a brief discussion after the viewing. "Tickets" are $10 pp, all proceeds will go to Elijah's Hope Foundation, Inc. based in Baltimore. Founder Tamira Dunn is featured in this film.

*Elijah's Hope is dedicated to providing strength, support and resources to women who have experienced miscarriage and other early child loss.

Light refreshments will be provided, film will begin at 7pm.

To purchase tickets, please click here. For questions, please contact Jessie Bernstein at jessie@mokshasoul.com.

Infant Massage October Series
10am - 11am

Touch empowers compassion, security, and trust. The earlier we can provide a continuous positive touch to an infant, the earlier the attachment creates a long line of constructive effects in the relationship between an infant and those that are caregiving. Infant massage can improve and support sleep, stimulate appetite, body awareness, decrease postpartum depression, latch challenges, help relieve constipation, gas & colic, increase parental bonding, and increase overall bonding and attachment with caregivers.

A new technique is introduced each week, along with weekly emails including support, cool handouts, and more. Infant massage classes are also for grandparents, foster parents and adoptive parents, as well! All supplies plus a few goodies are included.

This is a 4 week series; if for any reason you need to miss a class, a make-up session will be arranged if requested. Class is appropriate for babies 3 weeks old up to pre-crawling.
