You can feel good about purchasing this pattern because 100% of the sale price after PayPal fees goes into the bank account of the grassroots non-profit Kentucky Home Birth Coalition (KHBC).
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 Your purchase will help KHBC hire a lobbyist for the 2015 Kentucky legislative session to change the outdated laws and improve access to qualified midwives across our beautiful state of Kentucky.
