What is Casa Compasiva?

Casa Compasiva (Compassion House) is a Christian Birth and Midwifery Training Center due to launch in January 2011. This is an approved medical project of Missionary Ventures International to complement the ongoing ministry of MVI among indigenous people groups in Oaxaca, Mexico.

The mission of Casa Compasiva is to provide a place where pregnant women and their families can experience the love of Christ at this very vulnerable time of their lives.

From beginning prenatal care, through labor, delivery, and the postpartum period, women and their families are given love, support, and a biblically-based education.  It is a place where the good news of the gospel is proclaimed in both word and deed.  It also provides an ideal training opportunity for Mexican Christian women desiring to learn midwifery in a Christian context.
