Miles for Midwives, our annual 5K Fun-Run and Birth Fair brings together runners, families and midwifery supporters for a day devoted to maternity care improvement and community wellness. This annual fundraiser, put on in conjunction with Choices in Childbirth, is held the first Saturday in October in Prospect Park. Your support of this event and our mission is invaluable. With your help we are able to celebrate with our community of midwives, families, and supporters, as well as raise vital dollars to improve awareness of midwifery as a safe and supportive option for maternity care in New York City.

Join us for the 14th annual Miles for Midwives, a community fun run and fundraiser devoted to improving birth experiences for women and families and raising awareness about the benefits of midwifery.

Choices in Childbirth is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing expectant parents with a full range of information and education so they can experience the birth they want and choose. We educate, advocate and shape policy to help families make informed decisions about where, how, and with whom to birth and to increase access to childbirth services that support healthy birth outcomes.

NYC Midwives is an affiliate organization of the New York State Association of Licensed Midwives (NYSALM), the ACNM (American College of Nurse-Midwives) state affiliate. NYC Midwives practice an ancient tradition in modern times. The role of midwives has expanded over time to now include not only care of the reproductive age woman but also of women throughout their lives.
