BIRTH, a play by Karen Brody
                                                                   
BIRTH, a play by Karen Brody.   We invite you to be part of a very exciting event coming to San Antonio in March 2013.  BIRTH has been performed all over the world and has been referred to as "the Vagina Monologues of birth."

Moving between first-person monologues, dialogue, and the voices these women heard on the day they gave birth, BIRTH confronts "the naked truth about childbirth in America."  It tells the true stories of eight women painting a portrait of how low-risk, educated women are giving birth in America today. These stories are told with humor, sadness, joy, and drama and reveal our common humanity that begins at birth.  Each performance will be followed by a community talk back with local maternity care providers and consumers.

BIRTH is presented by BOLDSA2013, a grassroots coalition of organizers and performers who are committed to making maternity care in our community sensitive and responsive to women and their families. We are excited to bring this powerful play to you!  It will be performed on March 8 and 9 at 7:00 p.m. and on March 10 at 3:00 p.m. at Jump-Start Performance Co., 108 Blue Star, in the beautiful King William area.

All proceeds raised will benefit San Antonio Birth Doulas (SABD), a program of Catholic Charities, Archdiocese of San Antonio, Inc.   SABD provides free doula services to pregnant teen and low-income mothers. Through education, mentoring and one-on-one relationships, the doulas plant seeds and empower women to embrace their pregnancies and motherhood in a bold way.  Support is continued through the postpartum period.   Please visit www.sabirthdoulas.org  

Please consider helping us make BIRTH an event that will truly improve maternity care in our community. For more information, and to meet our cast, please visit our website:  boldsanantonio.org.

  . . .  it all begins at Birth!
