National Midwifery Week starts today and goes through October 10th. The idea was created by the American College of Nurse Midwifes to raise awareness about midwife-led care, and to celebrate their contribution to mother/baby care. You can learn more about this here.
Midwives have made a big difference in my clients’ lives, as well as my own. I am happy to partake in this week and answer any questions regarding midwife-led care. I believe this should be an option for all low-risk mothers, but too many times we in the U.S. are stuck in the “I need to see an OB” mentality.
Please join me here and on social media with the hashtag #NMW15 each day asI follow the daily action plan. I also would love to hear your experiences about how #MidwivesMakeaDifference.
