Baby fair to offer alternative therapies
3:00pm Tuesday 18th September 2012 in New Forest News
A HOLISTIC baby and toddler fair is being held at Ringwood Waldorf School this Saturday from 10.30am to 3pm.
Independent midwife and parent Erika Thompson and colleague Lucie Mann are offering a nearly-new sale alongside information about doulas, hypnobirthing, homeopathy, acupuncture, osteopaths and pregnancy yoga.
There will also be children's activities and games, and stands with details about naming ceremonies, twins and multiples support, children's centres, reusable nappies, slings and baby toys.
The event will be raising funds for Ringwood Waldorf School, in Folly Farm Lane.
Mrs Thompson is also organising a screening of a film on proposed changes to EU laws concerning independent midwives.
Freedom For Birth will be shown at the school at 8pm on September 20.
Midwives, women and MPs will be there to discuss a proposal to make independent midwives illegal from October next year.
Mrs Thompson said: “This is not about independent midwives - this is about women's choice and rights.”
