As of yesterday the first doula training course has been happening at Casa Compasiva. So far, so good. It's been a wonderful beginning. Hopefully we'll get some photos of the class to post soon.
Meanwhile we are in serious need of ... just about everything for the house itself. As you know, it is an enormous facility, which is a blessing. However, it is EMPTY.
If you live in the vicinity, can you find any furniture, dishes, linens, lamps, vases, decorative items, wall hangings, rugs, curtains, or basically anything that will make this building more homey for women coming for prenatal checkups and for delivering babies? Please keep us in mind before you have a garage sale or pass things on.
Even if you live further away, maybe you would consider making a donation toward the purchase of some of the furnishings. Hint, hint.
