Here’s an idea of what’s coming your way from the Georgia ACNM Affiliate! Feel free to follow along, celebrate in your own way, repost with your stories and celebrations of Georgia midwives. More will be posted each day of the week, including highlights of Georgia midwives throughout the state and words of wisdom they have for women!
Begin your week by posting signs on your midwife’s office doors and let patients and staff leave messages of appreciation for their midwife! Take a minute to write cards or decorate onesies for all newborns delivering during National Midwifery Week. Share your photos on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram with #MidwivesMakeADifference; #NatMW16; #GeorgiaMidwives

Midwifery self-care… take time to celebrate you. In a world of working hard in caring for women, it’s time to take a breath and reset your energy. Revisit what motivates you to care for women, what keeps you going and how you came to be a midwife. #MidwivesMakeADifference; #NatMW16; #GeorgiaMidwives
