How to get involved

Pagan Families has been growing as a resource on Pagan pregnancy and birth because of its many readers and contributors.  We’re up past 540 likes on Facebook, and the writers who’ve contributed to the blog number in the double digits.  That’s pretty exciting!

Are you a writer who’s been thinking about making a contribution?  Now’s a great time to have a look at our contributor guidelines and send us that post.

  • * ritualizing adoption

    As a pagan mama about to embark on a gestational surrogacy (their bun, my oven, essentially), I’d love to read others’ thoughts on surrogacy.

    Or.. maybe I’ll write mine for y’all!

      Oh, what a great topic – and what a journey that must be! Please do consider writing up your thoughts and experiences.

    I wouldn’t mind reviewing Birthing From Within, because I’m the only person I know who didn’t like it. But I’d prefer to team up with another writer – side by side posts with some one who liked it. If you find that person, let me know!

      Niki, I think that would be great. I’ll try to find another writer who liked it.
