Born Into This Birth Conference in Austin, TX

Born Into This is a conference for birth workers and leaders interested in the intersection of social justice, technology and creativity. The conference is an invitation to engage in a public conversation, a call to accountability, and a way to make contact across our differences in service to the past, present, and future of the field and our lives, asking the fundamental question: What were we born into?

Born into This is coming back in 2019 on June 27 and June 28 in Austin Texas. We expect talks, conversations and workshops to be better then ever before. So mark you calendars and reach out to us if would like to get involved. We are currently confirming 2109’s sponsors and would love to hear from you. Follow along on Instagram for more info @bornintothis.co
