Diane Goslin Gets a Boost from Successful Fundraiser

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

Saturday our family had the privilege of attending an amish-sponsored fundraiser auction & breakfast at the Solanco Fairgrounds.  The event was to raise money to help support the legal fees for popular local midwife Diane Goslin, who is in the court system fighting back against the state board of medicine.  The auction was very well attended by both Amish & English families and when we left at 1:30 people were still arriving with items to sell.  We enjoyed an excellent breakfast and connected with other homebirth families from all over the region!Lancaster Pennsylvania Home Birth Diane Goslin Amish Savehomebirth.com

For those of you who are new to LancasterCountyBlog, my wife and I became homebirth parents after the medical and insurance system failed us (read the story here) back last summer.  To put it mildly, Diane was a Godsend when our paths crossed in the midst of labor.  Now, we try to help other families looking for a natural option to the hospital and drug-induced birth scenario.

An organization was formed this summer to support homebirth in Pennsylvaniawww.SaveHomeBirth.com.  Since the state board is trying desperately to make an example of Diane, the hundreds (thousands) of satisfied patients of hers have decided to push back with their dollars and time.  For all the private midwives and doulas out there…this day was for you!

Jeff, with your own past experiences, I can understand your support for Diana Goslin.  It's a shame that the state is putting her through such hardship.

Jeff, This is awesome what the community is doing for Diane. Doesn't the state have something better to do like go after medicaid fraud or pill pushing docs.. What a shame..

Jeff, I will be donating some money to this great cause. I have meet so many great people here on Active Rain and it is weird how some of our lives are similar even being so far away.

All three of our kids were born at home with the aid of a midwife and the states are going after them here also. I applaud you for helping Diane and I hope your state doesn't foul things up on something that is so good for children and can save the medical community thousands. I don't know why they fight it so much?

Jeff- I am so glad that you are supporting Diane and this great cause! We have a constitutional right to our bodies and many states are trying to take away those rights. I wrote some posts about forced vaccinations and forced medications. Do you know they vaccinate for Hepetitis B on newborns!!!! IT is horrendous! We must stand up and fight for our health freedom and our children's health freedom. We as parents also have the right to not medicate our children and there are parents going to jail for that! I am glad you are being proactive! Katerina
