We were there to visit the offices of state lawmakers, to encourage them to vote for a bill that will help midwives to better serve mothers and babies in our state. A midwife assisted me when Zoodle was born, and I love the standard of care given by midwives.
We first met for breakfast with other families in our group. It was really great to see so many women wholeheartedly supporting midwifery!
Chickie and Zoodle did great, even though it was a long day. Chickie found a "walking stick" when we were making our way back to the parking garage.
Zoodle was tuckered out by the time we finished.
I thoroughly enjoyed this. Other than voting and writing a few letters, I haven't tried to be personally involved in the legislative process in the past. I was surprised how fun it was to speak out for an issue that is important to me. I think I will do it again--hopefully with the help of my two little lobbyists.
