JOIN US IN OLYMPIA FOR MIDWIFE LOBBY DAY!
Your presence is important for legislators to understand the depth and breadth of midwifery use and support. We travel in in teams to visit our legislators and educate them about the value of the midwifery model of care for families. You will go in groups with a team lead guiding the way. Our 2018 Agenda is being developed now.
Specific questions can be addressed to our fantastic coordinator, Sasha, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
