National Midwifery Week

Funny how IP will just knock the wind out of you. You wake up on a Friday morning and realize that it’s been National Midwifery Week ALL week, and you haven’t said or done a thing about it. However, it’s not too late to celebrate! This year, like last year, our local NYC ACNM chapter, along with Friends of the Birth Center will be hosting the 4th annual Miles for Midwives, a 5K Run/Walk race around Prospect Park, this Sunday starting at 10:00 am, rain or shine. Registration costs $15, and all proceeds go to Friends of the Birth Center and the NYC ACNM Chapter. There are great pictures up from last year’s event, and I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun it was. This year is slated to be even bigger, with more people expected to participate (last year we had about 200), and maybe even a politician or two. The beloved boy and I, as well as many of my fellow sister students from midwifery school will all be there, so if you’re in the area and you’re not doing anything on Sunday, come for a jog! Bring your children, bring your dogs, bring rain gair if it’s raining, and come hug a midwife or two and learn more about the wonderful profession of midwifery, and everything we have to offer you.
