Things that matter

z What really matters ? z

Our lives begin to end 
the day we become silent 
about things that matter.
Martin Luther King

With woman midwifery” is, by definition, about mothers and babies, and not so much  about  the women who attend them.        
What really matters is a parent’s right to choose  where and with whom they will give birth—even if that is with no one.

Actions bring results

I think one's feelings waste

they ought all to be distilled
into actions which bring results.
Florence Nightingale

We care, but we don’t know how to translate that into CHANGE.
If you are looking for a way to make a difference for birthing mothers and
new little will find it at  The Trust Birth Conference.
