Have you had a home birth in Kentucky?  If the answer is yes, then you can help us put a face on home birth in Kentucky.

Hello babyWe are starting a series on our blog featuring birth stories and photos from real Kentucky families.  Not only is it important to share our birth stories, but it is especially important that we share our stories of babies born at home in Kentucky.  The more we talk about and share our experiences, the more lawmakers will understand the importance of birth choices for the citizens of our state.

If you have a home birth story that you would like to share with us, please e-mail your story, along with any photos, to stories@kentuckyhomebirthcoalition.com.  Please include the town/city where the birth took place and the following statement:

“I am the copyright holder of this story and photo(s). I hereby grant permission for the Kentucky Home Birth Coalition to use this photo(s) on kentuckyhomebirthcoalition.com, related social media/networking sites, and in professional presentations. I give permission to use first names.”

It doesn’t matter if your Kentucky home birth was recent or long ago.

Thank you for continuing to help in the effort to license Certified Professional Midwives in Kentucky.
