Laguna Hills, CA (PRWEB) May 19, 2010
Community Alliance for Birth Options (CABO) (http://www.projectcabo.org), an organization established in 2008 to support the efforts of women and families to retain options for non-interventive care and acceptance for the philosophy of natural childbirth, announced today they have awarded Scholarships to three women in Orange County, California.
The CABO Scholarship was introduced last month at the Project CABO 2nd Annual Fundraising event and Silent Auction at Nirvana Grille in Laguna Beach, California. The CABO Scholarship is designed to financially assist expecting women who have shown an interest in delivering their babies in a natural environment, including the use of a Midwife, Birth Center or Doula, but are unable to fulfill the birth plan due to financial hardship or lack of insurance coverage. Proceeds raised at the event were donated to the CABO Scholarship program.
“We are absolutely thrilled and humbled that CABO was able to award three Scholarships to local women in need of assistance,” stated Mieke Johnson. “CABO is dedicated to helping women in our community. We strive to help each woman attain their birthing plan even if they are experiencing a financial hardship or lack of insurance coverage,” concluded Johnson.
The CABO Scholarships will be awarded on a quarterly basis. Recipients will be chosen based on a set of criteria outlined in the application in which their identities and the amount of the awards will be kept confidential.
“We are looking forward to awarding the CABO Scholarships each quarter. Each member of Community Alliance for Birth Options supports and believes in the Mission Project CABO advances,” added Mike Snell.
