It will be a beautiful day when the Kentucky state legislature passes a law allowing for licensure of certified professional midwives and creating the Board of Midwifery. Supporters of natural birth will breathe a sigh of relief and a joyful smile will light their faces. Midwives will be free to practice the full scope of their profession. Many will open practices in underserved areas. Women who previously lacked access to maternity care of any kind will be able to choose safe, respectful care provided by a licensed midwife. Communities and midwives will come together to open birth centers. Women will be able to choose to birth at home or in a birth center with qualified care providers and without fear. More women will have peaceful, empowering birth experiences surrounded by their loved ones. Fewer women will have to fight for the birth they want. Other state legislatures will follow Kentucky's lead. The effects of this positive change will ripple through space and time. It will be a beautiful day.

You can feel good about purchasing this pattern because $4.55-$4.60 of your $5 U.S. dollars goes directly from Etsy into the bank account of the grassroots non-profit Kentucky Home Birth Coalition (KHBC). The rest goes to Etsy. Thank you, Etsy!
KHBC is a non-profit organization of mothers, families, midwives, and other community members dedicated to licensing Certified Professional Midwives in the state of Kentucky.
Currently, the state prohibits these midwives from practicing despite the extensive evidence of their success in birth outcomes. Certified Professional Midwives are nationally credentialed and licensed in 28 other states. Your purchase will help KHBC hire a lobbyist for the 2018 Kentucky legislative session to change the outdated laws and improve access to qualified midwives across our beautiful state of Kentucky.
