THE LABORIOUS DANCE
by Karina Cochran
Three pregnant women of varying backgrounds and demographics bond during a weekend retreat that focuses on preparing for parenting. The weekend is led by an eccentric new age earth mother and a gen z doula who are both passionate about helping new mothers discover their life path. As they explore the “How to be a Mother” curriculum they learn there are no hard and fast rules to parenting, though some experiences are universal.
