Since getting married and especially as a mom, girl nights out have become few and far between. Date nights are a rarity as well!
I do continue to keep my eyes and ears open for fun events to attend, as a family, with my husband with or without other couples, or for my friends. I got very excited when I saw a tweet for the upcoming Mama Glow Salon Series- a platform for birthing conversations around film, panels and cocktail hour.
The Mama Glow!™ Film Festival was co-founded by three phenomenal women: Latham Thomas- founder of Mama Glow, along with Haley Binn, mother and contributor for Hamptons Magazine, and Rachel Paletsky, an advocate for integrative alternative medicine practices and founder and creative director of WellNEST and WellNEST Studio in Sag Harbor.
More Business of Being Born will have its East Coast premiere at the Mama Glow Salon Series on Monday, April 16, 2012 at from 6-9:30pm at The Scandinavia House (58 Park Ave and 38th Street, NYC).
Executive Producer Ricki Lake and Filmmaker Abby Epstein follow their landmark documentary, The Business of Being Born, with an all-new, four part DVD series that continues their provocative and entertaining exploration of the modern maternity care system. More Business of Being Born offers a practical look at birthing options as well as poignant celebrity birth stories from stars including Alanis Morissette, Gisele Bundchen, Christy Turlington- Burns, Cindy Crawford, Molly Ringwald, Laila Ali, Kimberly Williams-Paisley and Melissa Joan Hart.
The impressive panelists at the NYC event are Rebecca Minkoff (Rebecca Minkoff), Lyss Stern (Diva Moms), Ariane Goldman (founder of HATCH), Denise Albert & Melissa Gerstein (The MOMS), Dee Poku (WIE Network) and Abby Epstein (Filmmaker MBBOB)
