Hello fellow midwives and midwifery students!
We are very excited to announce we have 3 great workshops lined up for the September 9th meeting. These are all free to NHMA members and only $30 for non-members (for the whole day).
Supplies will be provided, however, if you happen to have any old/expired suturing or IV supplies we would love for you to bring them. Non-members who bring their own supplies / expired supplies to practice with will receive $5 off.
Please RSVP/Reply to email@example.com or text 713-213-4330 if you think you might attend – we absolutely understand the nature of on-call life, but having a rough idea who might be there helps us not over-purchase supplies (and thank you in advance for RSVP’ing!)
