A Cause for Celebration!
We did it! After four years of organizing and lobbying we helped pass the Home Birth Safety Act making midwife attended home births in Maryland a recognized legal option! We still have a lot of work to do but let's celebrate the huge accomplishment that this is.
The celebration is a family-friendly event aimed at celebrating all of you who helped make this happen. Thank you mamas, papas, your little ones, midwives, assembly bill members, and community supporters! The event will be potluck style at a gorgeous historic stone house in centrally located Columbia, MD. We will have a DJ, food and drinks, a kids corner, some speakers, and possibly some live music too. There is outdoor space for kids to run around (supervised) as well.
When: Friday, June 26th, 4-8 pm
Note: The party will take place between 4 and 8 pm; feel free to stop by on the earlier end or on the later end - whatever works best for you. We wanted to accommodate families who need to leave early for religious reasons or for little one's bedtimes. Also, those with 9 to 5s may need to come later. Staggered arrivals might actually help us accommodate more people which is what we want to do!
In order to make our event a success we are counting on your support in 3 ways:
