Call to Action: 10th Annual Miles for Midwives.
Saturday, October 6 2012 marks the 10th annual miles for midwives! The 10th Annual Miles for Midwives 5K Fun-Run and Birth & Wellness Fair brings together runners, families and midwifery supporters for a fun day devoted to maternity care improvement and community wellness. Over the past 10 years, Miles for Midwives has worked hard to provide universal access to midwifery care through legislation like the Midwifery Modernization Act (2010).
Participants of all ages are welcome and encouraged to bring a picnic lunch to celebrate the 10th anniversary. Proceeds from this event benefit the work of the NYC Midwives and Choices in Childbirth to improve maternity care in our community.
