I attended a Maryland Friends of Midwives meeting yesterday and we had a presentation from Jeremy Galvan, president of Maryland Families for Safe Birth. They are going to make a push in 2012 to get a bill to legalize CPMs in the state of MD passed.


They are looking to get 60,000 signatures on their petition before the bill is introduced in Annapolis. If you could please take a minute to sign the petition and if you have the means, to donate to the cause via their PayPal link on their website, that would be excellent.


The petition is linked from the left side of the page. Please share on Facebook and via email with other like-minded groups (mom groups, LLL, VBAC, etc)

Thank you so much for sharing this!! I'm working with Jeremy and MFSB in NE MD to try and get more support! I actually came on here to share about a fundraiser we're having in Feb in Harford Co in case anyone wants to attend and/or donate for it.
