…is coming to Portland! she will be speaking at a Waldorf school in town. here’s a link to more information. and here’s a link to a short YouTube clip of Rahima. i hardly recognized her without her mullet! her books, You Are Your Child’s First Teacher and Special Delivery, are my favorite childcare and birth books. her writing manages to be both gentle and radical. and her message is full of respect for mamas and for children.
