ICPA Freedom for Family Wellness Summit
Maryland Birth Boot Camp instructors Carmen Calvo and Anna Jozefczyk with board member Kristen Hosaka, DC.
This past weekend I had the honor of being asked to represent Birth Boot Camp at the ICPA Freedom for Family Wellness Summit in Reston, VA. Birth Boot Camp supports and promotes chiropractic in pregnancy and postpartum and addresses its use throughout the curriculum. We were excited to be able to spread the word about our childbirth education series to chiropractors throughout the country.
The summit had many world renowned and well respected speakers, including some of my favorites, Ina May Gaskin, CPM, Jennifer Margulis, PhD, and Kelly Brogan, MD. I was really excited to represent Birth Boot Camp and was proud to help promote our curriculum, but I was also REALLY hoping to be able to meet Ina May and Jennifer Margulis at the conference.
I met so many amazing practitioners at the summit. I networked with moms, doulas, childbirth educators, physical therapists, and chiropractors, and feel really good about how well our childbirth education program was received. Of course I know that Birth Boot Camp is extremely thorough, modern, and comprehensive, but it was awesome to hear that other professionals agree!
The highlight of the weekend? Luckily for me, I spotted Ina May, and was able to introduce myself and get a picture. She was gracious and humble, just as I imagined.
