Rights for Homebirth AZ
Organized by: Arizona Association of Midwives
It is becoming very clear that we, birthing families and the licensed midwives who support them in Arizona, are in great need of legal counsel. As we continue to create the necessary changes to assure the autonomy of women and their choices, we need your help. We are committed to continue fighting to create midwifery rules that are appropriate and that meet national and international standard of care. We need the expertise of legal counsel to pursue legal routes to accomplish real change.
To continue to retain legal counsel, all the court fees, and misc expenses in a legal battle we estimate a minimum of $5000 will be needed and as we move forward to make permanent change in statue and rule we will need much more.
All funds will be run through Arizona Association of Midwives - The Committee for Legal and Regulatory Concerns.
We are asking for gifts of $25, $50, $100, $1000.
Even if 1000 people gave $5 each we would have what we need to get started!
Give today and give generously!
Please feel free to share this far and wide.

As pointed out clearly by Judge Lang, "AZDHS knows that it's own rules and lack of guidance have put the midwife in this position...AZDHS has known about the potential problem posed by the rules for years and yet has failed to arrive at a solution itself."
