Time out for a little plug for a cause that’s so important to families and mothers throughout this area.
You may or may not know that Certified Professional Midwives are prohibited from providing out-of-hospital maternity care in this state. (Alabama, by the way, is one of only nine states that specifically prohibit midwives.)
This Saturday morning, put on your walking shoes and join the Alabama Birth Coalition as they build awareness of their efforts to change this (unnecessary) legislation.
Birmingham’s Walk for Midwives will begin with breakfast at 8 a.m. at Rojo, located at 2921 Highland Avenue S. The walk will begin at 9:30 a.m. All are welcome to walk a distance that is comfortable and to learn more about the issue and the Alabama Birth Coalition.
