The Visitation Birth Center

$5,145 of $200,000 goal

Raised by 88 people in 50 months

For the past 5 years I have been working full time to build an alternative birth center in Kentucky.  Prior to that I had worked toward that goal while being otherwise employed.  

Kentucky has NO Alternative Birth Centers!!!  

Kentucky women need options!!!  

I have been without a salary for 5 years, and have spent my saved IRA's and retirement funds to work toward this goal.  This was spent on the lawyer, certificate of need, architect, expert witnesses and their travel, etc.  It has been a fight that is meaningless and unjust. 

If this is to continue, I need your financial support as well as your emotional support.  Kentucky needs MIDWIVES!!!  

Please consider donating....
Even if it is a small amount monthly....
You deserve to be part of the solution.....
You deserve to be treated humanely in labor and birth....

Help fund a birth center now.

As an alternative, please send a check to :
The Visitation Birth & Family Wellness Center
1704 N. Dixie Hwy, Suite E-7
Elizabethtown, KY  42701

Thanks for fighting the good fight for all women!! So many people don't realize that the current practices in childbirth are often informed by the desire not to be sued, rather that the research regarding what is best for the mother and child...unless your care giver is a midwife. Pregnant women are among the most vulnerable in our society. I sure wish I were independently wealthy so I could bankroll your fight for justice for pregnant women!!
