Parents rights

and people write about me  ...  actual quotes....

• Carla's ideas will never work. She is just dreaming.
• It will never happen.   It is too late.  The Big Push has won.
• Parents' rights can never be secured. We need to accept that and move on.
• Carla needs to give up and shut up.  Licensure is here to stay and there is nothing that can be done about it.

Some amazing women were told to give up and shut up.

Hi, Carla! I am not a midwife YET, but I agree with you and was wondering what there is that we can do about all of this. Do you have any specific recommendations? Thank you! -Erika

The thing is, speaking the truth isn't necessarily about winning anything. You do not cease to speak the truth just because nobody is listening.

Don't ever give up, Carla. Your message is one of empowerment and personal responsibility and even if you do not succeed in turning the birthing world over in your lifetime you must remember that it starts with individual hearts. Your words of truth touched my heart, unlocked a door and as a result, there are three very happy, peacefully birthed little souls running about. And I add my voice to yours in the endeavor to give birth back to those whom it belongs. One at a time. This is the kind of thing that can only be done that way. :)
