Despite slow traffic on a rainy night, at least 65 people came out to our September 16 meeting on the topic of "Local Options for Natural Birth." Wonderful one-on-one discussions were had at the beginning and end of the meeting as participants talked to and networked with practitioners during open house/meet & greet sessions.
Thank you to Karen Klauss, CNM with Unity Health Care for providing our overview presentation and to the many practitioners who participated in our question and answer session.
