Miles for Midwives takes place in the autumn to raise awareness around the benefits of midwifery and the important work of Washington midwives! Your participation helps to ensure that families in Washington State have greater access to quality women’s healthcare and the lower healthcare costs associated with utilization of midwives.
Proceeds from Miles for Midwives benefit the Washington Affiliate of the American College of Nurse Midwives (ACNM) and the Midwives’ Association of Washington State (MAWS).
We are pleased to announce some businesses who are providing their support by offering free services before and after the run/walk:
Jasmine Bay Accupuncture (acupuncture and herbal tea samples), Libby Golden LMP, Doula (chair massage) and Trilogy Chiropractic (facilitated stretching, structural analysis and body balance checks)
