Global Maternal Health Event
We were honoured to be able to screen the film, Freedom For Birth a wonderful film that re-frames Human Rights as the most pressing issue in childbirth today. Following the film, panelists, Gloria Lemay, Jane Claxton Drichta, Martha Roberts and Debra Woods shared their perspectives on everything from their suggestions for reaching Millenium Development Goal #5 – the improvement of maternal health, to issues of legalization and registration of midwives and traditional birth attendants throughout the world.
Our thanks to event sponsors, Jassal Chiropractic, Eco Booty, Modern Mama, Dancing Star Birth, Cultivate Your Health, The Essential Homebirth Guide and Truly Pure Birth Services for supporting the event and to all of the wonderful business who donated items for the silent auction.
