Call for Submissions: Carnival of Birth Reflections

Carnival of Birth Reflections and invite you to participate in the first Carnival of Birth Reflections

Have you written about your birth experience(s) or are you finally sitting down to write about it for the first time? We invite you to reflect on how birth has transformed you into the parent you are today.

We are looking for new writing about birth experiences. If you have already written your birth story, this carnival is the perfect opportunity to write a new post as the parent you are now, reflecting back on your earlier writing or simply looking back at the parent you were at the time of your child's birth. We welcome all voices and experiences.
What we are not looking for are posts that disparage another's experience, selling or promoting a product, have a plethora of grammatical or spelling errors, or are far off topic. If you're not sure whether your post will fit in, please email us. We're happy to answer any questions.

Some Writing Prompts to Stir Your Creative Juices:
  • Would you like to share the experience of your birth or your child’s birth?
  • Did you learn something through birth that you think would benefit others in similar circumstances?
  • Are you healing from a traumatic birth experience and you would like to find closure by opening your heart to others?
  • Did the experience of birth lead you to a deeper understanding of yourself?
  • Did you witness a birth that had a profound impact on you?
Please join us in celebrating and honoring all birth experiences by submitting an authentic, personal story.

Please complete the submission form below. If you can’t view the form, you can find it here. In addition, you must email your complete submission to BOTH Patti: ptinh0441{at}rogers{dot}com and Zoie: zoie{dot}touchstonez{at}gmail{dot}com

Submission Form and Emailed Post Deadline: Tuesday, August 23 midnight PST

Carnival Date: Friday, August 26
