UW Health Nurse-Midwifery Program Celebrates Anniversary
Madison, Wisconsin – Mothers and their children born with the support of the UW Health Nurse-Midwives will gather Sunday, June 26 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the program.
A reception will be held at the Goodman Center in Madison. More than 80 parents and children who were born with the assistance of midwives will get together to reminisce about their experiences.
