Oh Orlando, how I love thee. I was so excited to do an event in Orlando, as I lived there many years ago. It truly is a magical place. I even brought my oldest son with me so we could spend half a day at Harry Potter Land! Memories to last a lifetime.
This MeetUp was so wonderful. The women that joined us were pleasant and happy. The Rosen Plaza hotel was gorgeous and incredibly wonderful to us.
Samantha Bice joined us at this event and opened up the day by speaking about the Pursuit of Perfection. Many moms related to always trying to look and be perfect and the stress that causes, when truly motherhood is far from perfect! We are all doing our best and learning as we go and we are still amazing mothers.
I then had the opportunity to speak, sharing my birth stories and my journey to starting Birth Without Fear. My talk was followed up by a Q&A and then a lovely giveaway from some of our favorite companies.
After our lunch break we came back to lovely cups of warm Earth Mama Angel Baby teas and Harmony Circle. We started seeing a pattern that women feel a little awkward at first, then really do feel it’s a safe space, and open up. They were validated, supported, and loved on.
The vendors that joined us in Orlando were so kind, helpful, and had fun with us! We only allow a few and always include them IN the event room. We truly do try to be all inclusive.
The end of the day is always nice as we come together with a closing message, everyone feeling supported and inspired and then take time to chat and take pictures. I would love to do the Orlando event again in the future!
