Time for some announcements!
- The first draft of the Midwifery Student's Bill of Rights is ready for review and feedback! It is printed in the spring issue of SQUAT Birth Journal. Sincere thanks to www.squatbirthjournal.org for supporting the Bill of Rights.
This has been a major feat and has incorporated the words and wisdom of many elder and young midwives alike. A rigorous survey process was used to create the framework. We are proud of the document (and still very open to constructive criticism.) There will be three rounds but this initial one is very important. Feedback can be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- We did receive a response from the NACPM, so thanks for writing! Janelle and Jeramie applied for scholarship and were both offered $300 scholarships. Unfortunately, this was not enough for us to make it to the symposium. Unfortunately neither of us were able to make the streaming option, however we hope to be able to collaborate with the NACPM in the future and appreciate their efforts
- We are looking for volunteers specifically graphic designers, programmers, social media folks, and grant writers! Do you have any of these skills and have even just 2 hours a week to donate? Email us!
- We had a small leap ahead in California this week. The Chief of Medical Licensing read our document and has asked to see the completed version! Yay! That said, we still need help spread the word and getting feedback.
