Support Midwives with 5K Run and Wellness Fair

September 27, 2012

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 10th Annual Miles for Midwives and Birth & Wellness Fair NYC 2012. This run/fair is designed to bring runners, families and midwifery supporters to this fun community day. Proceeds from this event benefit the work of the NYC Midwives and Choices in Childbirth to improve maternity care in our community..

Though I am not a runner, I do love to support the Run and I love going to the Wellness Fair afterwards and meeting new doulas, OB/GYNs, midwives, massage therapists….all of whom support women’s health.
