Great Expectations 

Pregnancy Circles

Theme and plot structure aside, every birth story is different. Birth Journeys, a doula and childbirth education company, will soon host Pregnancy Circles — discussion groups for expectant moms who want to hear about pregnancy and birth in a supportive environment. That means trained professionals sharing the details — not some woman with a labor horror story in the checkout line at the grocery store. "She was in line when I was pregnant, too," quips Jenna Thayer, a partner at Birth Journeys. The goal is to counter the seemingly endless supply of freak-you-out birth tales with honest and encouraging accounts. Drop in on twice-monthly classes that start in May.

Pregnancy Circles: Bimonthly discussions offered on a sliding scale, $5-15 per session. Birth Journeys, 4 Kellogg Road, Essex Junction. Info, 324-8809, vtbirthjourneys.blogspot.com.
