|Birthwell midwives facilitate “The Red Tent” creative space for women. The Red Tent is a sacred space constructed from beautiful fabrics and carpets that provides a nurturing and peaceful place where women come to gather and share their stories. Red is a symbolic color of strength or female power. Candles, flowers and beautiful altars help set the tone. The tent itself is rooted in an ancient Judeo-Christian-Islamic history of women’s gathering spaces and in native culture was called the Moon Lodge. Women used to go to the red tent while they were menstruating or giving birth. The Red Tents became community spaces where women went to learn from one another, to be in community, and to celebrate life. We draw upon these numerous rich traditions when we call this project a Red Tent. Inspired by Anita Diamant’s novel, The Red Tent is a space and time to honor our stories and promote healing. Midwife Marina facilitates this event to honor the women of our community and invites you to join her in this healing space.|
