Celebration of Midwifery in Nelson this weekend

Chances are you or someone you know has had a baby delivered by Ilene Bell in the Nelson area. 

She's part of a celebration of 20 years of Midwifery in Nelson this weekend, and a chance to say goodbye as she retires.

Tanya Momtazian is the co-partner of Appletree Maternity in Nelson.

She says Bell has delivered upwards of 1-thousand babies over the years. 

Bell was the first Midwife registered in BC and Nelson.

The celebration is tomorrow at 5:30 at the Rod and Gun Club in Nelson.
