Illinois Midwifery legislation has made it through the senate, and negotiations with the Illinois nursing groups in the house. Now we near the home stretch, and you can help us celebrate this Labor Day weekend! I hope that each and every one of you will attend the Coalition for Illinois Midwifery's 2nd annual home birth family picnic in Channahon, Illinois on Saturday, August 30, 2008 11am - 5pm (organized activities end at 5pm, park open until dusk).
Family Fun and Games!

Free hot dogs/tofu dogs!
Meg Volk, home birth mother and member of the Coalition's fundraising committee, has been working hard to put together a fun-filled afternoon with lots of interesting raffle prizes and silent auction items,. So join us for fun family activities and a day in the park, all to raise money to support licensure for certified professional midwives in Illinois.
