Whitney Pinger and natural birth featured on NBC Washington

Whitney Pinger and the WISDOM Midwifery practice at George Washington University was featured recently on NBC Washington.

Watch the story.

The theme: WISDOM midwives support women in having a natural birth in a hospital setting with a c-section rate of less than 5%. In this way, WISDOM midwives optimize the chance of normal vaginal delivery with the back up of hospital technology if intervention is necessary. "It's the best of both worlds," Whitney says in the video.

March for midwifery in the Palisades 4th of July Parade

We marched in the 2011 Palisades
July 4th Parade to give a loud
shout out to  midwifery care in DC.
Where's Your Midwife? 
My midwife is at GW!"

Proud WISDOM women marched along midwives, doulas and families at the Palisades July 4th Parade this year to shout out the importance of access to normal birth with the support of midwives for all women in Washington, DC.

The DC Affiliate of ACNM sponsored the float: a red pick-up truck decorated with belly casts.
