Calling all campaigners: how parliament works

 Stroppy Mums of the UK – here is a good opportunity to get some free training on how to be effective in lobbying Parliament.  Or at least how Parliament works so you can be effective in lobbying.  I went to one, it was excellent and will blog my report when I have a chance to write it up.  YOu can email the contact to find the workshops closest to you.

Midwives and independent Midwives need our support.  And Mums need the lobbying support of midwives.

Lots of love
