Did you have a wonderful experience at the Birth Centre and want to help us spread the word about this awesome facility?
Friends of the Birth Centre need your help! The Pregnancy, Babies and Children’s (PBC) Expo is coming to Brisbane and Friends of the Birth Centre will be having a stall!
We are putting a call out for volunteers, to spare any time you have available on Friday 19 June, Saturday 20 June and Sunday 21 June 2015. The times are 10am - 4pm on Friday and 10am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday.
The Expo is held at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, South Brisbane and we of course will have everything as organised as possible to make it nice and easy and comfy for our volunteers, so mark your diary with dates and start thinking about how you might be able to help the FBC out at this great event.
We promise it’s not scary – we will prepare you before the stall opens!
Babes in arms/carriers are very welcome.
If you think you can help in ANY WAY on ANY of the days, even for a short time slot, please let us know.
There will be more information to come, but in the meantime, if you could email the Friends of the Birth Centre PBC Expo Co-Ordinator, Skye Rowan, at firstname.lastname@example.org with any times you think you may be able help, or any questions you may have.
Don’t forget - mark your diary in any case because this is a huge, worthwhile event to attend!
Each of us come to the Friends Of The Birth Centre after a life changing event which changes how we see ourselves and prioritise our lives. In the months after having your baby you process your birth experience, discover the human limit of sleep deprivation only to push beyond it, read endless pages of conflicting advice, celebrate with friends and family and quietly weep at the struggle and angst of such profound responsibility. In this turbulent time you may feel energised and impassioned to make a difference (other than creating a brand new human being) and that’s when we want to pounce!
You see we have a not so hidden agenda, we want you to join our organisation and share in the many rewarding and sometimes tedious tasks which allow us to keep supporting and spreading the vital message that non invasive continuity of care in birth is available for FREE! Why aren’t there queues of mothers outside the Birth Centre?! We need a marching band!
We can’t wait to hear from you.
Now that we have had a chance to recover from what was such a fun day, we would like to take this opportunity to extend our thanks to everyone involved in making our 20th Birthday Celebrations - Family Fun Day such a success.
We would also like to thank our Stall holders for participating:
We are also immensely grateful to Di Farmer, who attended as the representative for the Premier and Minister for Women.
And I am sure you would all agree that a MASSIVE thank you is due to ALL of the amazing Midwives who came on the day.
It made the event that much more special to be able to share it with the wonderful women who are so much a part of our birth stories.
Thank you again to all who were involved (we hope we haven't missed anyone!), and we hope you all enjoyed the day as much as we did!
We would love to thank everyone who attended and supported us at the event on Saturday, and we sincerely hope you had as good a time as we did!
A special thank you to everyone who supported our Raffle, and a big Congratulations to our winners!
