In Honor of Mothers: KSLA Birth Center Fund

It is Time!  Join us in our fundraising efforts to bring forth a South Los Angeles Birth Center!

Allegra Hill and Kimberly Durdin are asking for your help to join us in creating a safe, home for birth in Los Angeles, in the community that we have dedicated ourselves to elevating.

Your support has grown us, our vision to grow more birth workers of color and to create a community space in South LA. Your love helped us to open KindredSpaceLA and fund The Birthing People Foundation and for over 2 years we have served and loved on the community in our birth, lactation, and education space. We have served hundreds of families in that time with great joy and gratitude.

Our services have always been made available as sliding scale or free as needed. Your support allowed us to do that! We have trained over 200 individuals as birth workers and have participated in and encouraged the formation of groups, healing circles, father’s support, mom’s support, body positive workshops, low cost lactation clinics, pelvic floor healing, infant development, mental health support, anti-racism circles, trauma informed training's, and birth worker training's. We have celebrated Black Breastfeeding week twice, screened films, baby-wearing workshops and more. We have given away countless items and products for parents in need, including baby carriers, diapers & clothing. We have created a nurturing space where folks can meet up, connect, meet new friends and chosen family. We have provided an incubator for emerging healers and leaders to hold court in our space. It has been a glorious two years!

Our goal has always been to OPEN A BIRTH CENTER, and at the start of 2020 Allegra and Kimberly began searching for a new home for KSLA that included space onsite for birth. COVID-19 has created “The Time Is Now” opportunity. To move forward in these new and changing times, we must create our next incarnation so that we may continue to serve the families of Los Angeles that we love so dearly, especially now, we when our services as midwives and lactation consultants that can provide care outside of the hospital are needed most.

Our wonderful groups have all moved online and will continue to be virtual until its safe to gather again. In the meantime, we are closing or current physical location to RE-OPEN as a fully embodied Birth Center, a Center for our community that is long overdue and whose time has come. Indeed, the time is NOW.

Would you like to join us in making this a reality? Let us start today, Mother’s Day 2020!  This auspicious time in which we honor our mother’s and fore mother's, the one’s who have birthed us and/or raised us as we also celebrate the ultimate Mother, our home, Mother Earth and all of her children.

We would be honored to receive your tax-deductible donation today, to honor the mother’s, perhaps to honor YOUR Mother in a project we build that will continue to hold, honor and embrace all who are BECOMING into motherhood.
