I had the delight of meeting Erica from Birdsong Brooklyn at Spirit Weavers this year, and her darling baby Stone (who melts hearts with his sweetness), and it was love all round for us!
Erica does amazing work with her doula sister Laura, supporting women and families through pregnancy, birth and post partem in Brooklyn USA.
They have just launched their New Moon Newsletter, and today the second edition arrived in my inbox.
I was so touched by their first edition, I encourage you all to sign up for it, in the pop up window when you go to the interview below. Many wonderful resources and tender sharing from these two wise women and their guest contributors in Mama of the Month.
Speaking of which… I was the Mama of the Month this new moon! Such an honour. Erica asked me questions primarily about dance, which was such a treat for me to reflect and share on. I don’t usually write much about that.
I have wanted to make playlists forever, and felt overwhelmed by the choosing from the thousands of amazing songs I love… but with a little push from Birdsong I created one which they are sharing on the newsletter too!
Thanks for pulling it together Erica. I’m listening to it right now, and I hope it gets you all up and moving.
Here’s the Mama of the Month interview. The playlist is at the end of the interview.
And here’s a little dance I did after I read the first Birdsong newsletter and watched a sneak peak of their documentary Threshold.
