Happy International Day of the Midwife!

Today, we are celebrating our midwives and sending them love.  Midwives do a tremendous work in the communities they serve.  The Midwifery Model of Care brought the opportunity for healthy birth to so many mothers whose options were limited.  We thank our midwives for believing in the normalcy of birth, creating safe spaces for us to birth in, their sacrifices, and all their long hours of loving our babies into this world.  Blessings to you.
