Do you have an interesting story about giving birth? Or maybe one about watching a baby come into the world?

On Nov. 15 at 5:30 p.m., the Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College is inviting people to share their experiences at a program called Birth Stories.

Part of a greater exhibit, Birthing Bodies, the program focuses in on the fact that giving birth and being born is a lesson in reciprocity—about “being with” and “from” other people.

The discussion will be moderated by Skidmore student Laila Morgan, curator of Birthing Bodies. Author M.B. Antevasin will also read from her book The Birth of Magdalena: A Journey Towards Healing in Three Trimesters.

Visitors may bring objects, such as photos or drawings, to help tell their stories. Babes in arms are also welcome.

Admission is free. For more info, call (518) 580-8080 or visit the Tang’s website.
