A Mother’s Day event happening this weekend in San Diego will celebrate midwives and everything they do to bring new lives into the world.
On Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Midwives Coalition of Greater San Diego will host a free family-friendly festival to celebrate Mother’s Day and International Day of the Midwife at Waterfront Park on Pacific Highway.
The event will include talks by midwifery experts covering the topics such as safety of home births, water births and delayed cord clamping. The fest will also include a special pampering station for moms, baby-wearing demonstrations, diaper races and food trucks.
Kids can enjoy activities like face painting and a bounce house, too.
Organizers say moms who have delivered with midwives will be in attendance, as well as midwives themselves with a passion for the profession.
The Midwives Coalition of Greater San Diego seeks to educate the public about the many birth options throughout San Diego County.
