ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
The Mother Wit Conference seeks to offer an inclusive, safe, and engaging space for men and women of all ages, to examine and give voice to the reproductive experiences that are often left unspoken and unaddressed. These experiences include, but are not limited to, infertility, miscarriage, premature birth, abortion, and postpartum depression/psychosis. The conference examines how they affect the individuals mentally, spiritually, and emotionally.
The one-day conference is a forum for new viewpoints, language, and practices offering individuals a newly empowered relatedness to their experiences, dispelling the stigmas associated with reproductive health.
