We are a missionary family that moved to South America and have opened a Free Maternity clinic in southern Ecuador. We offer prenatal, labor, postpartum and well women care free to any women in need. We provide a safe, beautiful place with hot water/birth pool, birth room with a private bath room, birth ball, diffuser with essential oils, a kitchen for the family to use, toys for children to play with, free vitamins/supplements and food for delivering mothers, all while providing them with compassionate skilled care. We opened the doors and women just started arriving, word spreads quickly down here! We have seen women from all over Latin American as well as refugees escaping the current conflict in Venezuela. With a national cesarean rate of 76% the women birthing here in hospitals are subject to unnecessary interventions while being treated inhumanely without a say in what happens to their or their babies bodies. We are working to change this..one birth, one mother and one baby at a time! We are raising funds for a washing machine, (doing birth laundry by hand is not fun), a small form of transportation to travel to home births and home visits, (such as a quad), and to ship 14 plastic storage totes full of birth center supplies from the United States. We have women almost ready to birth but are lacking the supplies needed because they have not come down yet! Please help us make a positive difference in the world and donate to this most worthy cause!
