Ms. Ina May Gaskin is an internationally known activist, speaker and<br>
author on pregnancy, childbirth, and maternal & infant mortality. A<br>
homebirth midwife for more than three decades, she has been called the<br>
"Mother of all Midwives," and has been credited with the<br>
resurgence of midwifery in the US. Ms. Gaskin is the founder and<br>
director of The Farm Midwifery Center in Tennessee, and author of Ina<br>
May's Guide to Childbirth, Spiritual Midwifery and recently, Ina<br>
May's Guide to Breastfeeding. She also developed the Gaskin<br>
Maneuver, a technique for resolving shoulder dystocia during childbirth.<br>
Marnie Cooper-Priest won Ms Gaskin's visit and lecture through a Big<br>
Push for Midwifery contest. Inviting the public to hear her speak is a<br>
fund-raising and awareness-raising gift for the confederation of<br>
organizations in NC working to license CPMs. Come and share the prize,<br>
and continue the big push for CPM licensure here in North Carolina!<br>
Presented by the North Carolina Midwives Alliance and Duke University<br>
Women's Center, and sponsored by The Big Push for Midwifery<br><br>
Funds will go toward lobbying and working with the NC legislature on a<br>
licensing bill for Certified Professional Midwives, national licensing<br>
of midwives, and the NC Midwives Alliance.<br><br>
The North Carolina Midwifery Alliance (NCMA) seeks to promote unity,<br>
cooperation, and communication among midwives statewide. NCMA also<br>
strives to provide opportunities for information exchange, continuing<br>
education, peer review and support, while helping to ensure the highest<br>
quality of care for women and families seeking midwifery services.<br>
The Duke University Women's Center promotes the full participation<br>
and agency of women students at Duke through mentorship, leadership, and<br>
programming that addresses gender violence, equity and social justice.
