We have 22 terrific letters - thank you to everyone who wrote one. They've been submitted, along with one from Lane Co FBC, to Mr. Mel Pyne, PeaceHealth CEO and Board President. 

We need more letters as we'll continue submitting them to PeaceHealth. PLEASE add your voice and encourage your loved ones to do the same. Remember, your letter doesn't have to be perfect - writing it and submitting it is what counts here. Click here for more info. 

Getting the word out and building our base
We want to connect with as many Birth Center families, friends and supporters as possible. Please send email addresses for these folks to Additionally, the steering committee will get the word out via Craigslist and a drop box at the Birth Center. 

We are also working on an e-newsletter and an online petition. When you receive these, please forward them to as many people as you can.
