~~~In the Spirit of Giving~~~
I've spent over 25 years studying & dreaming about being a Midwife with my Heart & Hands full of Mamas & Babies ~ Now the reality of Global Maternal Health has fueled my motivation in the direction of providing care in the under served regions of the world. Only through our joint efforts form here forth will this be possible~
Why You can support me:
I am very passionate about Maternal Health, the drive within me to make this happen is not my own, it originates from the call to rise up and take responsibility for those whom have been left behind, from my point of view there truly is no other work to be done until we Lift up the bottom Billion then we may all move forward together.
I am only one woman but my hands and heart will serve and care for thousands. This has always been my path & now my children and I are able to follow it through to fruition as a Family in service to all. Please share and support us so that we may give back not just simply because we can but because we choose to be responsible for others. We are All One~
I will be enrolling in the distance program offered by The National College of Midwifery in Taos NM while studying at the Shiphrah Birth House in the Philippines where all clinical and academic training will be overseen by certified Midwives (CPM's). Upon completion of the program I will recieve my Associates Degree in Midwifery afterwhich I will sit for the NARM to pass and then recieve my CPM status~ Then through collaborative efforts determine where a new Birth/Maternal Health center will be of great service to a region that presently has high Maternal Mortality rates (defined by 600 or more deaths per 100,000 women) due to lack of services and or care providors & take appropriate steps to begin construction of a Center while providing care and education to Women and Girls in the communities~ This is what I care about and how I can make offer Life to others! Together we can make a difference and save lives~!~

Maternal Death has
"According to Dr Mickey Chopra, chief health officer at Unicef, the time is ideal to spend money on reducing the number of deaths caused by complications during pregnancy. According to the World Health Organization, complications during pregnancy and childbirth are one of the leading causes of death and disability among women of reproductive age in developing countries"
~Words could never express~
The Gratitude these women feel when they are attended to by a skilled care provider and are not in fear of dying in childbirth nor of losing their baby. Childbirth is perhaps the most empowering experience in a woman's life and these women deserve to Live through it and experience it for the miracle it is!
