National Midwifery Week

Welcome to October and National Midwifery Week!

I’m proud to be in the ranks with you, my birth-working, baby-catching, advocating, health-promoting, justice-seeking, space-holding, trauma-informing, choice-honoring, person-empowering midwives! I hope to share the dance floor with you and celebrate all that we do at the Annual Meeting in a few weeks.

Until then, maybe I’ll see you at the March this Saturday, or at the Birth Happens Midwifery Exhibit at the San Lorenzo Valley Museum reception on October 3!

In the spirit of intersectional feminism,

Paris Maloof-Bury, CNM, IBCLC

President, California Nurse-Midwives Association
