A friend and I attended the International Midwives' Day celebration today in Phoenix, and it was a big success! Lots of exhibits, loads of people attending - a hit!
This year (the first year of doing something bigger here in Phoenix), we had music, food, a raffle, ultrasounds, free pregnancy massage, and a number of booths with some of the following:
- Bradley method childbirth
- ICAN of Central Arizona
- Arizona Student Midwives
- Baby Wraps
- Pregnancy Photography
- Birth Statuary
AND..... Sign-ups for a soon-to-be-formed Arizona Birth Advocacy group! If you weren't there, contact Mary Langlois to find out more and to sign up! I can't wait. We've needed this for a long time.
The organizers did a terrific job of getting together a great event! Nice work, everyone! Looking forward to next year.
