Support Midwives….NY midwives depend on it

September 22, 2011

For many women, midwives are an important part of the birthing process but they aren’t always supported or even understood in our health care system. To help support midwives, raise awareness and raise funds for this cause, the NYC Chapter of American College of Nurse Midwives & Choices in Childbirth is holding the 9th Annual Miles for Midwives – a 5K Run/Walk and Birth & Wellness Fair. This run/fair is designed to bring runners, families and midwifery supporters to this fun community day. Additionally, proceeds from this event will benefit the work of ACNM and CIC to improve maternity care.
