“Don’t forget about Milton Memorial Birthing Center’s 40th Anniversary Celebration this Sunday, August 14th (2016). The Celebration will be held at the Flowersview Community Center in Flowersview, FL (The physical address for the Community Center is 261 Flowersview Blvd., Laurel Hill, FL 32567.) It will start at 2:00 P.M. with dinner. The anniversary program will start at 4:00 P.M.. Please come and commemorate the wonderful work started by the late midwife, Gladys Milton. Feel free to bring a friend!
Gladys Milton’s midwifery career was from 1959-1999. Her work as a midwife led to her induction into Florida’s Women’s Hall of Fame (in 1994) and, posthumously, into Okaloosa County (FL) Women’s Hall of Fame (in 2001). The legacy of her work still continues at Milton Memorial Birthing Center through her daughter/fellow midwife, Maria Milton.
