This domain was formerly the home of Virginia Birthing Freedom, the seminal grassroots movement to improve
consumer access to direct entry midwives. Between 1997 and 2002, VBF developed language that became the essence of the VA CPM

gradually morphed into the original BirthPolicy.org website.
All that remains (here) from those sites are the summary and download (.rtf files) of Peter F. Schlenska's dissertation, "SAFETY OF ALTERNATIVE APPROACHES TO CHILDBIRTH," and a copy of my favorite law, the original Virginia Statute for Religious Freedoms
