May 5 is More Than Cinco De Mayo….

May is Midwifery Month, but May 5 is the Virtual Day of the Midwife!

To celebrate you can:

1.  Interview a midwife!  For an article, blog post, school project or as a potential caregiver.
2.  Send a midwife a thank you card or gift.
3.  Participate in this online conference.
4.  Read this great 1970's interview with the Modern Mother of Midwifery, Ina May Gaskin
5.  Help sponsor to train and Afghan Midwife here

Even if you haven't hired a midwife, supporting midwifery in your community is an important step to keeping childbirth safe overall.  Please do your part to support midwifery!
