The Monterey Birth & Wellness Center believes that all birthing families need community and a place to learn, grow and connect. As such, we have put together a monthly Community Speaking Series to showcase different members of our community that have something to offer for pregnancy, birth, postpartum and well person/well families.
October’s MBWC Community Speaker Series Presents:
Mid Drift Movement is a nonprofit organization using film, social media, art, and community outreach to change the conversation surrounding postpartum body image.
Angie Sonrode has been a birth worker and parent educator for well over a decade, and her husband Mike is a high school English teacher, as well as the "film crew" for their Mid Drift docu-series. Together, the Sonrodes have traveled extensively with their four children, conducting workshops and filming as they seek perspectives on postpartum across cultures, hoping to educate larger audiences about health care systems, media influence, partner perspectives, self care, and more. Mid Drift
Episode 1 introduces their work and background, along with the complexities, challenges, and successes of several body positive allies.
