The We Want Birth Committee invites you to join them Saturday for a one year anniversary march. Committee Co-Chair Kirsten Fritch explains this march is to bring awareness to the temporary closure of obstetrics in our community that’s now been in place for one year. She says women and families in our community have been uprooted and put under undue financial and emotional strain because of the closure adding their committee has heard from expectant and new mothers that there are gaps in their care as a result of the closure so they want politicians and decision makers to understand that this closure has come with serious implications for our community and for the surrounding area.
The march begins at Pioneer Square at 2 Saturday afternoon, goes down Main Street up to the hospital, down Church Street and back to Pioneer Square. If you’re unable to join the march you can meet them on Church Street in front of the hospital. You can get more information on the Committee on their Facebook page We Want Birth or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
