As a doula immersed in maternity care, I strongly understand that...
“Midwives are essential. Our bodies need them. Our families need them. Our mental health needs them. Our health care needs them. Our black mothers need them. How do we expand midwifery care so everyone who wants a midwife can have access to one? Sadly in many places the choice comes down to privilege.” Quote from @ourbrilliantbodies
Please join me this Saturday at MILES FOR MIDWIVES, I’ll be running the 5k or kindly donate here to support and celebrate the midwives our there trying to better care for ALL! Any donation is greatly appreciated.
The 16th Annual Miles for Midwives 5K Fun-Run and Birth Fair is a fundraiser that brings together the birth and midwifery community, runners, families and midwifery supporters for a day to recognize and celebrate the contribution of midwives in New York City and the families they serve.
All contributions go directly to NYC Midwives, a membership organization of midwives residing and/or working in New York City. The chapter aims to support midwives and the practice of midwifery, while increasing visibility of and access to midwifery care in our city.
