For the birthing community, October 2 - 8 had a much deeper meaning as National Midwifery Week, a time dedicated to celebrating and recognizing midwives and midwife-led care.
During National Midwifery Week, the team at Baby+Company Wheat Ridge executed several events to celebrate midwifery and draw awareness to the maternal care movement.
Baby+Company staff and families took to the street to share their passion for midwifery with activities like canvassing First Friday on Tennyson St., handing out balloons, totes and information, and even sharing with families in their own neighborhoods. The team was able to spread the word about the variety of services and personalized care they provide. Before the community activities, the team hosted a Pearls for Pearls event, where birth professionals were invited to wear their favorite set of pearls and head to the center to hear a presentation from Tracy Ryan (CNM, MS) and lead midwife at Baby+Co. Nearly 20 birth professionals within the community came to hear the presentation and received insights on patient experience and relationships along with best practices for a variety of situations.
National Midwifery Week may have come to a close, but the team at Wheat Ridge continues to work each day to create a sense of community and awareness. This month, the center will host its first bi-weekly Belly to Belly Pregnancy Circle Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
The event is open to the community and invites anyone who is expecting to attend to learn, ask questions and connect with women who are going through the same thing.
