Mercy Maternity Center
What is it?
The birth center in the Philippines where Eileen and Jenny received midwifery training.
What do they do?
They serve women and families who live well under the poverty line by providing them wit very low cost pregnancy, birth and baby core, all the while training midwives like me to gain the skills necessary to open their own practices either stateside or even going to other countries were the need is great for skilled birth.
What are the costs involved in providing this kind of care?
The women pay only for their medical supplies, so approximately $15 per birth or less, but donations given make up the difference as one birth costs about $50 total.
How can I help?
You help just by choosing New Birth Midwifery! 10% of all funds brought into New Birth Midwifery are taken off the top and given to Newlife/MMC to allow women and their families receive care they would otherwise not receive during such an important time in their lives.
