The Friends of Missouri Midwives annual Cookie Day at the Capitol was great! We had many wonderful speakers, including Jennifer Block, the author of Pushed. There were tons of families and bags galore of beautifully packaged homemade cookies. How exciting it was for those of us who were visiting the Capitol for the first time since Midwifery became legal! For the official story and some pictures, go to the FoMM blog.
On a personal note, it was fun for me to go back again. I actually missed walking the endless halls and talking to the various legislators, even though some of them were devils in disguise. It was a bit more tedious with a five week old in tow, but he slept contentedly for most of the day.
