Birth will be presented by BOLDSA2013, a grassroots coalition of organizers and performers who are committed to making maternity care in our community sensitive and responsive to women and their families. We are excited to bring this powerful play to you!
Moving between first-person monologues, dialogue, and the voices these women heard on the day they gave birth, Birth confronts "the naked truth about childbirth in America." It tells the true stories of eight women painting a portrait of how low-risk, educated women are giving birth in America today. These stories are told with humor, sadness, joy, and drama and reveal our common humanity that begins at birth. Each performance will be followed by a community talk back with local maternity care providers and consumers.

All proceeds raised at this event will benefit San Antonio Birth Doulas (SABD), a program of Catholic Charities, Archdiocese of San Antonio, Inc. SABD provides free doula services to pregnant teen mothers and free or reduced fee doula services to low-income mothers. Visit sabirthdoulas.com for additional information on the important role that doulas play during childbirth and identify the many benefits that our young at-risk mothers receive who are now giving birth and raising our next generation.
