For Immediate Release


Renowned midwife and author comes to Western North Carolina

Ina May Gaskin will speak at the 3rd Annual Joyful Birth & Breastfeeding Expo to be held November 3rd at the Blue Ridge Mall in Hendersonville. The event begins at 10 am and will also include presentations, films, vendors, kids’ activities and prizes. Admission is free and open to the public.

“We are incredibly fortunate to have the most famous midwife of our time joining us at this year’s Expo,” said Barbara Davenport, Co-Leader of BirthNetwork of WNC which puts on the annual mother-friendly event.

Gaskin is best known for her books “Spiritual Midwifery” and “Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth,” used in many childbirth preparation classes across the country. A midwife at The Farm, in Tennessee for many years, she received the Right Livelihood Award for her contributions of teaching and advocating safe, woman-centered childbirth methods. Gaskin travels the globe speaking to midwives, nurses, educators, physicians, and doulas, promoting birth activism to transform the culture of birth for safer, healthier births.

The Joyful Birth & Breastfeeding Expo will be held at the Blue Ridge Mall, 1800 Four Seasons Blvd, in Hendersonville. For the full schedule of events visit events
