Today is International Midwives Day (and Cinco de Mayo).
Choices in Childbirth thinks that a good way to support International Midwives Day is to take action to help the homebirth midwives in NYC who are unable to practice since St. Vincent’s shut down.
What better way to celebrate than helping us support the Midwifery Modernization Act?!
PLEASE – Take a moment to review this action alert, and set aside 15 minutes of your day to call your local legislators to ask for their support of this crucial piece of legislation.
We will be organizing in-person visits to the local (NYC) offices of our state representatives in the coming weeks. Please contact Terry if you are interested in showing up and talking directly to legislators! Terry@choicesinchildbirth.org
**We particularly need more supporters from Queens!**
** If you haven’t yet, please sign the petition in support of the Midwifery Modernization Act
