Event description

Description

This month, we're supporting healthy births for incarcerated people.

The Minnesota Prison Doula Project (MnPDP) provides pregnancy and parenting support for incarcerated pregnant people and mothers. It provides birth support from trained doulas, as well as parenting eduction groups and one-on-one counseling. The Minnesota Prison Doula Project works with women held in correctional facilities throughout Minnesota, including Minnesota’s only women’s state prison in Shakopee.

They're also hosting a National Prison Doula Training this fall where doulas will be able to learn from each other and from those working within the intersections of full-spectrum reproductive health, justice for incarcerated people, and health policy. We're raising additional support for scholarships, available for birth companions within communities disproportionately affected by the carceral system, including Black doulas, Women of Color doulas, Indigenous doulas, and LGBTQI2s doulas.

You'll toast feast on small plates inspired by baby nicknames, including:

  • Munchkin and Tater
  • Muffin and Baby
  • Sprout and Sweet Pea
  • Bunnie
  • Chickadee and Beanie
  • Honey and Peanut

Food will be available for a donation, and we invite you to give any amount that is generous to you. There will be halal, vegan, and gluten-free menu options so that all can share.

Specialty craft cocktails are available for purchase, and are created by Stefan van Voorst and Machine Shop

Hosted by The Break Room at the Historic Machine Shop, which hosts a pop-up Monday night lounge with craft cocktails and small plates.
