Walk for Midwives


On October 3, we’ll be joining citizens in communities across the state to help raise funds and awareness as we work for greater access to midwives and better maternity care in Alabama. 

The Walk for Midwives is part of the Alabama Birth Coalition’s campaign to raise $55,000 to support our vital public policy and educational work. A nonprofit, all-volunteer, grassroots organization, the Alabama Birth Coalition relies on the generous support of our sponsors and individual donors to make this work possible.
