Join the Village Women of Woodstock three times a year as we meet to listen, talk and learn about all things holistic and womanly: infertility, the fourth trimester, natural family planning, PMS, natural menstrual products, breastfeeding & homemade formula, poverty and pregnancy, co-sleeping, baby wearing...the topics are as varied and endless as we are as women. No one ever selling anything; just local women gathering. You are invited! Come!
