This Saturday, October 4, 2014 come help celebrate 40 years of nurse-midwifery in Santa Cruz. Local members of the California Nurse-Midwives Association are organizing a fundraiser and silent auction at the Kuumbwa Jazz Center with live music by local band SambaDa.
This is something close to all of our hearts at Benedictine Healing Products. My mom chose to have all three of us at home, and I have continued the family tradition and had both of my kids at home as well. Having grown up in such a unique and special community such as Santa Cruz, where so much is accepted and supported, it was eye opening to navigate the issues of home birthing in Ohio, where I now live. Come out and support the nurse-midwifery community in Santa Cruz this Saturday and celebrate this amazing group of women!
For an excellent article on nurse-midwifery in Santa Cruz county, read the article that appeared in the Good Times last week.
The doors open at 12:30PM for the silent auction and the festivities start at 1PM.
Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. For more information, check out the event information on Facebook.
Benedictine Healing Products has donated a fantastic basket of products valued at $250 for the silent auction that focuses on women and children’s issues.
