NEWS AND UPDATES

NEW WEBSITE

We have a new website to help midwives and students stay in contact with each other, discuss issues, and spread the word about classes and events. The website includes a regional events notices, and a "Dear Midwife" Forum.  This new type of open format allows every visitor to post questions, announcements, comments, and responses for all to read.

The website also has an interactive CALENDAR. This is a new POWERFUL tool for communication! Any person can enter an event: a meeting, a class, a discussion group, a conference, a seminar... even a party or lunch meeting! Come visit the calendar and POST your announcements!
