Haiti: How you can help!
Dina and I travelled to Haiti in August and had another amazing trip. You can read about it on my blog at: wisewomanchildbirth.blogspot.com
Thank you to our donors, especially: Vivian Acebal and Andra Baldo, Renee McKenna, Jennifer Nutt, Kim Nguyen-Ehrenrich and Kevin Ehrenrich, Dr. Laura Norrell, Gretchen and Jim Sandler, Maria and Walter Muncsh, Kristine Hicks, Ayesha Hasan, Diana Paul, Tracey Stone, Anelise Dandler, Eugene Brandon, Dulce Baron and family, Shaniqua Stipins and Beatrice Bofill. We could not have had such a success for trip without all those who helped either by collecting baby clothes or donating. My deepest gratitude to you!
Here's how we can continue to support mothers and babies in Haiti:
Sew menstrual pads!!
Most women arrive at the hospital with only a few torn rags to use postpartum. I am hoping to find women across the country who love to sew and would like to make cotton menstrual pads for the birthing women. Find patterns here

Sponsor a Midwife:
The midwives get paid $1.50 an hour for their work. For $4000 a year, you can sponsor a midwife, including her equipment and travel expenses. This would be a great project for church groups, mom's groups, a special fundraising event, or an individual family that would like to connect with an individual midwife. Just let me know if you would like to help in this way and I can help get you started!!
Collect white mesh panties from your birth kit or hospital stay to send to St. Therese hospital. You can drop them by my office any time.
Come by on Saturday, I'll see you there!!
