Birth fim fest contines in Alberni

The Trust Birth Film Festival at Char’s Landing in Alberni continues.

The West Coast Doula Collective, a group of birth and post-partum doulas working with birthing families in the Alberni Valley and beyond, is sponsoring the Trust Birth Film Festival at Char’s Landing in Southport.

This week’s film is Babies, and screens at 7 p.m.

The final film in the series will be Orgasmic Birth on Thursday, Oct. 25.

With these films, WCDC hopes to offer the community a look at how other countries and cultures experience birth and parenting.

All of the films are free of charge and open to all members of the public. Refreshments will be available before the film at Char’s Landing. Time for discussion will follow.

(Note: because of the subject matter there is some nudity and explicit birth scenes.)

For more info, please call Cornelia Slotiuk at 250-724-4088 or e-mail at douladarlin@gmail.com.
