Whidbey Island's library system hosted two panel discussions on midwifery care on International Midwifery Day on May 5, 2008.

Cynthia Jaffe, a licensed midwife known for her compassionate care of childbearing women on Whidbey Island, headed up and organized the panel. Both panel discussions were interactive and lively, and at times provocative as the controversial book Midwives was discussed.
