Alpharetta Midwife Group Sponsors Pregnancy and Parenting Event with Ina May Gaskin in Atlanta
Atlanta Midwifery sponsors a pregnancy and parenting event in Atlanta in an effort to help educate residents on ways to improve birth outcomes and raise money to support midwives around the world.
The showcase brought many of Atlanta’s top childbirth educators, doulas and service providers together with leading minds in the field to raise money, share knowledge and discuss ways to improve birth outcomes around the world.
Henci Goer, an award-winning medical writer and internationally known speaker, presented on how to prevent the preventable c-section.
Actress, writer and spokesperson for Holistic Moms Network, Mayim Bialik, came once again to the Bellies to Babies Foundation event to help raise funds for Midwife International. Bialik, more widely known for her role as “Blossom” in the 1990’s T.V. show and the currently running “The Big Bang Theory,” is an outspoken supporter for breastfeeding and attachment parenting topics.
Ina May Gaskin, a world renowned writer, midwife, 2011 The Right Livelihood Award winner, and creator of the Gaskin maneuver, also joined the program to discuss why providing the best possible care to mothers and babies is an important part of making a difference in the world.
“The midwives of Atlanta Midwifery were thrilled to be a part of such an event. We have all read Ina May’s books and practiced her teachings,” said midwife Kim Storey. “I know I was honored to meet her and introduce her to a whole new generation of people.”
