  • | 6:00pm - 8:30pm | Local Events
    - In this workshop we will dive deep into what birth REALLY looks like and how it really works. Indie Birth's birth education resources have been hugely popular in the online natural birth community but we want to see more change, faster, and so have started doing these shorter immersions to make the most crucial information as accessible as possible. This will be a multi-media, experiential learning event. Our hope is that you will leave feeling fully immersed in what birth really looks like and feels like when we understand and respect the process. We also hope that you will leave with a stronger sense of what you want for your own birth (if you are planning one) and how you are going to get what you want and need for you and your baby. Nursing babies and children welcome if you feel like you'll still be able to focus. Learn more about our philosophy and work at indiebirth.com Everyone who is interested is welcome - you do NOT need to be pregnant or planning to become pregnant to attend. I love when we have people of all ages, sexes, genders and backgrounds attend! The workshop will be from 6-8 PM with 30 minutes following for Q & A. All attendees will receive a goodie bag, exclusive sales the evening of the workshop, plus mock-tails and snacks for the moms to be.

Fun things to do in Cumberland

Since 1986 the Town Planner Calendar has been keeping families across America up-to-date about events and other fun things to do right in their hometown.

Delivered free of charge every December to millions of homes across America, our full-sized, full-color calendar is a time-tested and beloved tool for helping families stay organized. The large date blocks are not only loaded with lots of nearby events and fun things to do, there's plenty of room for you to record your own family's important events like birthdays, anniversaries, parties -- anything you have planned -- so everybody in the house can see them whenever they go to the fridge, out the front door, or wherever you choose to display it.

But there's more! Every calendar is full of coupons from popular local merchants, so you can save money while supporting small businesses right in your hometown.

And don't miss our beautiful full-color photography! Every month you'll recognize a new photo from someplace close to home, submitted to us by a local photographer. If you'd like to have your own hometown photos included in our calendar, please contact your local publisher for more information.

We truly believe it's better to "keep it local". From coast to coast and border to border, our network of franchisees work with organizations and merchants right in their community to make sure you get the information and savings you care about. We prefer to feature family-friendly events that are a short walk or drive away, and coupons from local businesses so you can support your hometown economy.

If there's something happening close to home that folks in your neighborhood need to know about, why not submit it to us today? Please note that publication of your event is subject to approval by your local Town Planner publisher.

If there's no Town Planner calendar in your area, you could be looking at a great business opportunity! Town Planner franchisees set their own hours and can work out of their homes while providing a valuable service to both homeowners and local businesses in the area.
