It’s no secret that I’m a huge proponent of midwifery and today is a great day to help publicize the challenges we are having in our province. We don’t have enough midwives in Manitoba and the ones we do have are struggling with pay equity, training issues, and more. Let’s hope that their current contract negotiations don’t come to a strike.
There’s a petition running to improve midwifery services in MB: Sign it here!!
In the meantime there’s an event happening at the Birth Centre this morning on midwifery in Manitoba. I wish I was able to attend!
In the weeks leading up to our provincial election, this is a good time to press your local candidates on what their parties commit to do to improve midwifery services in Manitoba.
