The ladies — and their male counterparts — of the Charleston Birth Place are not ones to be trifled with. Ever since DHEC started making trouble in the Birth Place hood, people have been fighting every step of the way to keep its doors open. There have been protests, legislative action, and even food truck rodeos and fundraisers for the cause. And they’re at it again this Saturday with a food truck rodeo. Event-goers can enjoy music from the bands Brandon and the Archer, HoneySmoke, and Let Me Fly, while noshing on delicious food from Cast Iron, Korki’s Kafe, Mud Pie Bakery, and more. And since the Birth Place is all about children, it makes sense that they’ve got some special events just for the little ones. “For $5 children will receive a wristband that allows unlimited access to a jump castle slide, balloon artist, face painting, and bubbles,” says Rachael McNamara, a Hypnobabies childbirth hypnosis instructor. “We will also have an optional nursing area with a tent, chairs, and a changing area.” All the funds collected from the vendors and food trucks, as well as donations and a silent auction, will go toward legislative and legal efforts to pass S.C. House Bill 5002, which if put into effect would enhance the state’s birth center regulations and bring all centers up to national standards.
