(Note: this page was set up by homebirth mama Sarah Whedon, but funds will be transferred directly from GoFundMe to MMA and not go to her at all)
CommonHealth also published an opinion piece in December from Sarah Whedon, the Somerville mom who's operating this GoFundMe page in collaboration with MMA: "In a recent survey of new mothers, more than a quarter said they would consider home birth in the future and two-thirds thought home birth should be a right. Shouldn't Massachusetts be protecting that right to choose home birth?" http://commonhealth.wbur.org/2013/12/opinion-license-midwives-birth-options
Supporters across the state are raising money to support the lobbying effort for the Massachusetts Midwifery Bill. Together, we can achieve our goal of greater and safer access to home birth in the Commonwealth.

Our family was blessed to have received excellent prenatal and home birth support from our midwives. I am a proud home birth after cesarean mother and highly recommend this safe option be considered by most families.
