Birth Center 5K Run/Walk Event a Labor of Love

The Santa Barbara Birth Center will host its second annual 5k Run/Walk and Wellness Fair starting at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 6, at Leadbetter Beach.

Participants can warm up with pre-race yoga at 9:30 a.m. The run/walk (jogging strollers welcome) will head up from Leadbetter to La Mesa Park.

Also planned are a kiddie race, Kindermusik, massages to pamper local moms, post-race yoga, raffle prizes, food for purchase, beer and wine. There will be information about holistic family care in the community, and a chance to meet the midwives at the Santa Barbara Birth Center.

"The SB Birth Center offers a comfortable, home-like setting for birth with certified midwives and skilled attendants," said midwife Laurel Phillips. "We value education, informed consent, and family involvement in the birth process.

"The Santa Barbara Birth Center strives to make the midwifery model of care available to all women regardless of socio-economic status through donor-supported subsidy," she said.

The SB Birth Center is the only freestanding birth center (501c3 nonprofit) in Santa Barbara County.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
