Just home from a long weekend in Vancouver. It was wonderful to spend time with our dear friends from California, hiking at Whistler and biking through gorgeous Stanley Park. We weren’t deterred by the rain (though there was a lot of it) and managed to stay warm with delicious bowls of ramen and a micro-brew….or two!
ACNM is excited to share a sneak preview of our new video to educate the public about midwives and the care they provide. Let us know what you think and please, #SPREADTHEWORD!
On Sunday, September 21, Barbara joined her granddaughter Kendall at the Climate March in Manhattan. Kendall came up with 18 of her friends from the University of Virginia, where she is a freshman, to make their voices heard in this cause.
It was a full house at Barbara’s apartment, with sleeping bags on the floors & lines for the bathroom, but we all had a great time.
On August 18th, CBS Midwifery delivered our 3,400th baby, Jackson Scott Harrison. Jackson’s parents, Scott and Viktoria Harrison, founded the NYC-based nonprofit charity: water, which raises awareness and money to help people living in developing nations get access to clean drinking water. Currently, 800 million people worldwide don’t have clean water to drink, and in the last 7 years, charity: water has raised more than $140 million, and funded over 11,000 water projects that will help 4.4 million people. To celebrate Jackson’s birth, Scott and Viktoria setup a fundraising campaign where friends and family could donate in his honor. To date, Jackson has raised more than $171,000 which will help 4,800 people get clean water.
