Revive the blog to tell the story of many mamas, babies, families and midwives…
In 2012 this website was created to bring awareness of the much needed help homebirth families and the midwives who assist them need! We formed a movement that created change. Amazing change! A movement that is still desperately needed. As we made the much needed change it was clear there is still huge amounts of work to be done. The spotlight illuminated other areas that desperately needed attention but never got addressed in the 2012 rule change.
And now, 3 years later, homebirth consumers and then midwives who serve them are feeling the ramifications.
Starting over a year ago midwives started to receive heavy fines and threats to suspend or even revoke licenses FOR GIVING GREAT HEATH CARE! One such midwife was Wendi Cleckner. In the posts to follow Wendi has agreed to share her story and we hope many of the other midwives who have felt the witch hunt will speak up as well.
Our intention is for awareness. Everyone must know what is going on. We hope this will insight you to action.
Mixed in with the stories we will keep you updated as to the current things you can do to make change now. There is a lot of momentum and it will take another movement of the masses to create positive change!
So are you ready for the stories?
