National Midwifery Week was created by the American College of Nurse-Midwives to celebrate midwives and midwife-led care. This year, National Midwifery Week was September 30th to October 6th, 2018.
This year we will be celebrating the end of #NMW2018 with our Annual Miles for Midwives in Prospect Park. Please consider donating or doing us for the event.

There has been many articles in the new recently concerning the disparities in maternal mortality for black women. It is important that we as care providers recognize the statistics and do our due diligence to improve the preventable.
Twenty years ago today, Shar birthed her first child. This child inspired her to move toward women’s health and a career in Midwifery. Today we celebrate her, her transformation and all other women!!
Today is such an important day in the history of reproductive rights. On January 22nd, 1973, the Supreme Court ruled in a 7-2 majority to legalize abortion. This historic case was built over the course of three years, and to this day, it is an important reminder of all the work that has been done and the work that still needs to be done to maintain and improve access to abortion care. In modern times, it’s easy to forget just how difficult things were only 45 years ago. Many people died attempting to self abort or due to lack of access to a safe abortion.
We were so lucky to be a part of the growth of families this year (39 and counting). Thank you for sharing and supporting us. We can’t wait to see wait 2018 brings.
