What Is Find Your Village Anyways?

by Birth Without Fear on March 10, 2017

We get comments here, Facebook, Instagram, and in emails wondering what our Find Your Village events are all about. They are about empowerment, inspiration, information, and validation for you and your husband or partner. There is no one size fits all choice to make in pregnancy, birth, postpartum, self love, or self care and the Find Your Village events allow you to open up and feel the way you do without the judgement of friends, family, or society.

Despite what we read and see in the media, we are ALL in this together and Find Your Village events help you to do just that: find a village of women who want to support and be supported just as much as you do!

Below are some of the comments people have made about Find Your Village events:

“I have so much love and respect for this wonderful lady right here! I have spent the last week really enjoying being a mama and being pregnant. Spending the day at the Find Your Village event in Denver and all the wonderful people there was so amazing! Here is to real life connection, conversation, and raising our vibes as a tribe. So much love.” @lovingmamadoula

“Gonna be honest here. This is me after a 12 hour graveyard shift, 1 hour nap, no coffee and a 90 minute drive to Queen Anne. I was so beyond emotional and finally meeting January Harshe after 3 years was the highlight of my month. January, thank you for coming to Seattle. Thank you for many of your famous hugs and thank you, thank you, thank you for being you. I shared a vey small bit of my story (birth to postpartum to 2 years later aka now) I didn’t have the courage to share it all, but I shared some. That alone, made me feel better, safe and made me finally see I WASN’T ALONE. Today made me open my eyes and realize things I didn’t realize before. Slowly but surely everything will work itself out and I will be okay again.” @k_paz3

“If you have any interest in babies, pregnancy, postpartum, self-love, or just being a fucking badass woman, educate yourself and follow this goddess. She is a personal hero and I got to hear her speak today for almost six hours. I am confident in saying that following her for the last three years has had a huge impact on the way I see parenthood and womanhood. January, THANK YOU.” @gabriella_eve

“Thank you to this badass mama January Harshe for keeping it real and having the strength to share your story with so many. Today was full of laughs and tears among women who entered as strangers, but left as empowered sisters.” @ashley____mae

“Yesterday was full of beauty. Beautiful people. Beautiful mamas. Beautiful babies. Beautiful stories. Beautiful interaction. Each day I think of 3 amazing things I’m grateful for. Yesterday were these 2 beauties. January Harshe preaching it and keeping it really real (with love) with us mamas and my boy who brings joy to my world every day. Thank you Birth Without Fear for being a resource while I was pregnant with this miracle and also during the lonely times postpartum – forever grateful.” @fitwhit86

“Do you ever listen to someone speak and their message makes you shake your head in agreement repeatedly and laugh and want to give solidarity fist bumps and toss up praise hands and sometimes even your eyes leak because it’s just so good? That’s me when listening to January Harshe. This woman is a blessing to other women and I’m grateful for her voice.” @mrs.cnv

“You rocked my world today. The openness of this setting and the real raw emotions felt and heard today, were just far more than I could have ever imagined would happen. Today I shared it all. From my first birth to my last, to my miscarriage and all the feelings and emotions surrounding postpartum healing, breastfeeding, wetnursing, and everything in between. Today was real. Today is what every mother needs. Find your tribe ladies. Don’t travel this road alone for another day.” ~Sara Swick.

“Seriously one of the best days ever! I am so thankful and grateful for the opportunity to meet and talk to this beautiful soul today. January, you are an amazing woman and thank you so much for helping me through 2 pregnancies and postpartum life and being a voice for so many women. You truly are an inspiration.” @kaybay0089

“I have followed this beautiful human since before I became a mom and today I got to not only listen to her speak (which I could have done all day) but also meet her, hug her, and feel the incredible love that simply radiates from her. On top of that, I got to connect with other women in a way that is open, honest, and raw. It is so comforting to listen to others and know that, even though our stories may be different, we are all in this together. Thank you, January Harshe, for holding space for all of us today and facilitating this much needed connection.” @mandalynnharris

“When January herself lets you cry on her shoulder while she hugs you and holds your newborn baby. I’m so happy that this moment was captured regardless of how I feel I look. I’ve always admired January Harshe but she is even more inspirational in person and I mean that on a very deep level. She is strong. We are strong. I will never forget this experience.” ~Jackie Pollack

“Today was so amazing. Missy and I not only got a much needed girl day together, but we got to listen to birth stories, were surrounded by strong women, and reminded that we all have a voice. Thank you January Harshe for being such an amazing woman. You have been inspiring me for almost a year now, so to see you in person and hear you speak on things that are so near and dear to your heart was wonderful. Thank you for what you do, you have impacted both mine and Missy’s life so much. You rock, boo.” @nstreeter88
