There is a virtual birth conference going on here:

Is anyone doing anything to celebrate? Last year, when I lived in Phoenix, the birth network in the area put on a big picnic/birth fair at the park by the zoo. I went and it was really cool. They had booths for midwives, doulas, childbirth educators, etc. There isn't anything like that here, though.
