Birth Fest is an annual festival of all things related to belly, baby and family. I went for the first time 4 years ago with my firstborn tucked into a sling and walked around thinking to myself, “Wow, this is a whole new world! There are so many things out there to access in the way of support and great products that I had no idea about”. Fast forward a couple years, New & Green was born and I found myslef on the other side of the “table” still with a baby on my back (just much bigger) and talking to lots of pregnant and new families about how to cloth diaper. The next year, New & Green was on the organizing committee. This is our third year being a part of the Birth Lounge Collective and the 5th annivesary of this great event.
What I love most about this event is that it is like a giant party where you meet new friends, catch up with old ones and really feel the love. It feels a bit silly to say it, but really, it’s true. Folks that get into the world of supporting new families do it because they love it right down to their core, and it shows.
So if you are in town on February 26th, come on down to Birth Fest at Britannia Community Centre on Commerical, say hi to us and check out the amazing folks that can support you on your parenting journey.
See you there on February 26th between 11-4.
