Oak Grove Midwifery

Mother Health International (MHI) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to respond and provide relief to pregnant women and children in areas of disaster, war and extreme economic poverty. We are committed to reducing maternal, infant and child mortality rates by creating culturally competent and sustainable birth centers using the midwifery model of care. We currently work with midwives in areas where the burden of perinatal mortality is extremely high. In each country we have clinics staffed by traditional midwives who work side by side with local nurse midwives and visiting ‘resident’ midwives from around the world.

Michael Franti's non-profit organization One Big Love put out a call for midwives from around the globe to come help relieve the local midwives recovering from the super typhoon from November 2013 in Dulag, Philippines. They were offering grants for midwives to come. Rachelle and Jenn put applications in right away, and asked to be scheduled for October of 2014, so they could finish out their client load. We're not sure how many midwives applied from around the world, but there were only 20 grants awarded and Rachelle and Jenn each got one. They worked at Bumi Wadah Birth Center in October 2014.  http://www.wadahfoundation.or.id  Please consider to donating to this amazing work being done by some amazing midwives.
