MCT Annual Reunion Picnic

Past clients and current clients of MCT it’s time to add the the annual reunion picnic date to your fall calendar! The picnic will be held Sunday, September 13th from 11am until 1pm.

It’s an opportunity see your midwives and pre-natal class friends again. The picnic will be held in the picnic area at the southeast corner of Dufferin Grove Park, which is located south of Bloor, East of Dufferin. It will be a potluck so we ask that you bring something small to share.

We hope to see you there!

#MidwifeMondays on Twitter!

#MidwifeMondays is a new campaign that the Association of Ontario Midwives has launched asking midwifery clients and midwives to tweet messages about the value of midwives and midwifery care to Ontario Minister of Health and Long-Term Care Dr. Eric Hoskins and Premier Kathleen Wynne. The goal of this campaign is to ensure that they’re aware of the tremendous support that families have for their midwives and the incredible commitment that midwives have to their clients and their profession.

Join us every Monday in October and tell the Health Minister, the Premier and the twitterverse in general about why you value midwives. – See more at http://www.ontariomidwives.ca
