Rachelle and Jenn received a grant from Michael Franti and Spearhead's non-profit, Do it For the Love Foundation, to work at Bumi Wadah Foundation Philippines for the month of October 2014. We are truly grateful. We are restructuring our practice to support our passion for international midwifery and non-profit work. We will leave at the end of September for a month to serve as midwives for the women at the Bumi Sehat Medical Relief Camp in Dulag, Philippines. In the wake of disaster, this Birth Camp was started by the amazing Vicki Penwell of Mercy In Action, and is now under the caring support of CNN Hero Ibu Robin Lim, of Yayasan Bumi Sehat. We will be serving the women and the families devastated by Typhoon Haiyan (locally known as Yolanda) from Fall last year. Oak Grove Midwifery is collecting supplies for the families and the Birth Camp Midwives. List of needed items Oak Grove will be collecting for the Birth Camp: dopplers, BP cuffs, Stethoscopes, Pitocin, Lidocaine, syringes-3ml, DeLees, Gloves, thin cotton baby blankets, baby shirts, & baby hats. It will be Rachelle's third time back to the Philippines and Jenn's second. Lets hope our Cebuano has held up through the years. So there it is! Stay tuned for more updates and events in support of this work!
