WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Some Wilmington moms are taking part in a national rally spanning 170 cities about maternity care for women.

The mothers are calling for safer, evidence-based practices that put newborns and mothers before convenience and profits. So, they rallied on the corner of Carolina Beach Road and College Road in Monkey Junction Monday.
