Memorial Physician Women’s Center and the American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM) invite the public to learn about midwifery during National Midwifery Week, Oct. 5-11.

This educational campaign will bring women and families and nurse-midwives together to empower women to make informed choices about their health care.

Rising rates of Cesarean sections, skyrocketing health care costs, fear and misperceptions are among the reasons ACNM and its more than 7,000 nurse-midwife members observe Midwifery Week each year. The week also highlights 80 years of midwifery care in the U.S.

"Midwifery Week is a good time to recognize the contributions midwives make on women's health within our community," supporters say.

Midwifery Week is supported by ACNM, its members, physicians and and women's health organizations across the nation. More details are available at www.midwife.org. For more information or to set up an appointment, please call Deb Logan, Certified Nurse Midwife with Memorial Physician Women’s Center, at 903-439-4917.
