One event celebrating Midwifery Week is "Meet the Midwives" on Thursday, October 4. From 5:30 to 7 p.m. Spectrum Health Midwifery and OB/GYN will be open to the public to meet the midwives that work at that practice. There guests will be able to ask midwives questions about what they do, and how they're involved in the birthing process.
The practice is located on 426 Michigan Street North East in Grand Rapids.
