Midwifery Advocacy Day and Rally in Raleigh

Twas the night before Rally
And all through the state
Midwives held their breath
That the babies would wait.

It was time to gather together
From far and wide
And shout out loud,
CPMs shouldn't have to hide!

We know midwives provide special care
And their clients feel it strong
We have to license CPMs next year,
Not doing so is just plain wrong.

Hello friends! Some of you may have heard that I am working with Honey Head Films to make a short documentary that will focus on Certified Professional Midwives and the quest for licensure of CPMs in NC.

Why a documentary?!?

I believe that it is important to increase the reach of our advocacy information and build connection with perinatal healthcare consumers, voters, politicians, public health agencies and organizations, and policy makers. A documentary is an important tool that we can broadcast widely to provide informative evidence and beautifully filmed stories that will inspire excitement and momentum for change!

This is meant to be a quick explanation of why I wanted to develop this documentary. One of these days I'll learn how to make a quick video, but this is stil...

Without a doubt, my childbearing experiences changed who I am and shifted the course of my life. Did yours?

This space is sacred and a care provider should treat it as such.

I am seeking a grant writer. I'm not sure that this matters, but I am specifically seeking grants to fund a short documentary film. Any thoughts or references ?

Legislative Business post for the day! Call to Action!!

The link below is a detailed outline of email addresses and messaging (so much easy copy and paste, folks! Please do add personal details and messaging too!) that we need members of the House Health committee to receive. Tuesday is the LAST CHANCE our Bill has to be heard and move through the House Health committee, which needs to happen for the Bill to move forward this legislative session.

If we are not successful this legislative session it will be 2 MORE YEARS until we can try again for licensure. Please take 5 minutes of your day and add your voice to this important cause. If you have already emailed about this cause that's wonderful, thank you and we ask that you do it again!

Attention new moms: Come join us in October for a playful, light-hearted and feel-good class for Mamas and pre-crawling babies on Sunday afternoons! We will focus on community building through sharing our experiences of new motherhood while also bonding with our babies and getting to know our beautiful new bodies. Balancing both restorative core movements and relaxing breathing techniques/movements, we hope you leave feeling empowered and at ease in this transitional phase of life. During class, Sometimes wearing baby will feel better and sometimes placing baby on a soft blanket will feel like just enough space for mama to lighten her load a little - the choice is yours! We hope to see you there!

Walk for your midwife, walk for your community.

There aren’t enough midwives to meet the needs of homebirth families in NC.

We want insurance coverage for people choosing to birth at home, system integration so folks can safely utilize resources and higher levels of care when needed, and the ability to practice midwifery without the threat of prosecution.

You can donate to support our legislative efforts. Link in stories.

Dear ILM Birth clients and friends,

Licensing CPMs in NC is a matter that is very close to my heart. This will expand access to high quality care for many families. 2023 is a critical year for getting a licensure bill passed in the legislature, and we are working hard to raise the money to fund navigating the political system and process to bring our licensure efforts to fruition.

The 2022 Walk for Midwives is fast approaching! This is an important fundraiser, if you are able to contribute please click the link provided to make a donation toward my fundraising goal. Check out the main Fundraising page to see other ways to participate! I would love to see your beautiful faces at the in person Walk event in Wilmington (see site for info). Let me know if you have any questions!

With gratitude~Nicole
