Behind Brave Birth Stories
Everyone experiences birth and is affected by it. Brave Birth Stories are culled from birthing people, partners, doulas, midwives, doctors, nurses, and everyone in between. It is with these submissions that the Brave Birth Stories Troupe devises an original theatrical production annually to benefit local efforts to provide Doula services for those who cannot afford them.
We are working on a full length production for late 2017, early 2018. Check back for upcoming event details and schedule.
