- Are you working toward licensure for Certified Professional Midwives in your state? Are you planning to?
- Are you concerned about the future of VBAC and HBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean and home birth after cesarean)?
- Have you been frustrated by lack of consensus and infighting within your local birth community?
- Have legislative road blocks, back-door dealings, and insider politics at the state capitol prevented your bill from advancing?
If the answer to any of these questions is YES, then please join us at the PushSummit, on August 6 in Cary, NC, to learn from veteran birth activists who’ve been there in the trenches and will share their insight, wisdom, experience, and not-so-dirty tricks!

Discounted student rates are available.
The Summit’s PushUniversity is a unique opportunity for people who want to become agents of change to learn from the birth community’s experts on everything from effective organizing tactics, to grassroots mobilization, to utilizing the media—as well as the many resources available via The Big Push for Midwives—to promote positive messages about midwifery and out-of-hospital birth and to build effective legislative campaigns that expand access to the full range of birth options for families nationwide.
Groups in every state that are working to improve birth can benefit from sending a representative to the Summit, not only to learn but to share. All of us have valuable information to share, and every time we leave our virtual worlds to spend face-time together, it makes our community stronger.
Hope to see you there, and please share this link widely! http://bit.ly/PushSummit2011
The Summit will take place alongside the MANA Region 3 conference, which has secured a special rate of $115 per room. Rooms can be booked at http://ncmidwife.org/MANARegion3Conf/?page_id=17
For questions about the conference, email Pam Maurath at PushSummit@bigpushformidwives.org.
Please check your calendars and make plans to attend!
