That sounds awesome! Do we have to RSVP in advance? We have 3 moms due on December 18th (can you believe that!) and I think 6 more during that month. It's going to be a crazy time but I would really love to be there. I miss you girls!

Pancake breakfasts are so much fun! I had a blast at the one that I helped run for another organization this summer. It was like one big fat mamababy community party and I bet that this one will be like this too!

What about kids davi? Any separate price or free admission for the littles?

I hear there is going to possibly be a silent auction. Who doesn't want to go shopping and have all of the money go to a great organization like this?

Friends of Michigan Midwives need this money as we go into an uncertain future for homebirth midwives in Michigan. Things are changing fast in other states and homebirth has a high profile now. I know that FOMM is poised to work hard to either help make Michigan midwives stronger or save our bacon, whichever comes first.

I'll be there!

We've posted a suggested donation $6.00/plate as just a suggestion, we'd love to have people come & decide what they can pay for their families.

YES, we will be having a silent auction!!! :

Hey --

I was recovering from an early-morning birth I am really sorry to have missed it. I want to make a donation. Does FOMM have paypal? If so, let me know and PM me:
