Chicago, IL – The Birth Center at PCC and New Moms will co-host “Women’s Night Out,” a free community event where women can enjoy an evening of fellowship. Women’s Night Out events foster community, model self-care techniques, and introduce health concepts such as nutrition or physical activity for women and mothers. This month’s event will be held on Thursday, June 29, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at New Moms at 5317 W. Chicago Avenue in Chicago.
Catherine McNeil, author of A Mother's Love: 31 Days of Affirmations for Single Mothers, will host a roundtable discussion to inspire mothers.
“Pregnancy and motherhood can be isolating because we don’t have places to gather and speak about our experiences,” said Mary Sommers, Birth Center Director of Clinical Operations. “This event invites us to listen to the words of Catherine McNeil as she speaks not only of her experiences of motherhood through spoken word, but speaks to our way of relating and knowing truths within the unique experience of motherhood.”
All Women’s Night Out events are baby-friendly. While not required, an RSVP is appreciated. Dinner and childcare will be provided.
Established by PCC Community Wellness Center in 2014, the Birth Center at PCC remains the only freestanding birth center in Chicagoland. It is a home-like facility separate from the hospital where women can give birth with minimal medical intervention. PCC partners with New Moms, an organization located on the west side of Chicago and the near west suburbs. New Moms offers holistic services surrounding young mothers and their children with all the supports they need to break out of the generational cycle of poverty, homelessness, and dependence.
