Ontario women are expecting…birth centres!
During the summer of 2011, Ontario Midwives asked supporters to send them a photo or their babies or their birth if they supported birth centres. The response was overwhelming, and we created two videos to showcase just a fraction of the over 10,000 Ontarians who sent postcards supporting birth centres. Their hopeful faces sent a message that Premier Dalton McGuinty heard and as a result, two midwifery-led birth centres will be created in Ontario.
This would have not happened without your support, whether you sent a postcard, tweeted for birth centres on our Take a Leap for Birth Centres social media day of action or liked us on Facebook. Thank you everyone!
