Natural birth scholarship:   

A recent video that went viral on Facebook and YouTube shows an indigenous woman from Oaxaca giving birth on a government health clinic lawn after having been ignored and refused service by the medical staff.  The plight of that woman and her baby underscores the predicament of underprivileged indigenous women and their babies in Oaxaca.

Help us provide a compassionate alternative to a traumatizing birth experience. A "birth scholarship" will allow a low-income woman and her baby to be lovingly attended in a clean and safe environment, with professional doctors and midwives.  The normal cost of a birth at Casa Compasiva is approximately $480 US, and although we give frequent hefty discounts, that is still well beyond the price range of many low-income families. Let the love of God touch both mother and baby at this critical time of passage!

Caesarean birth scholarship:

Complications sometimes arise in even the best-planned births. And sometimes a pregnant woman is "screened out" from a natural birth because of pre-existing medical conditions. In these cases, a "Caesarean birth scholarship" will allow a low-income Oaxacan woman to transport to a decent private hospital for a surgical birth.  For $1250 U.S. she can be promptly attended by a respectful medical team rather than waiting hours (and sometimes days) for care at the public hospital.  Instead of isolation and abandonment during the most difficult hours of her life, she will be accompanied by loving Casa Compasiva staff who will pray for her and her baby, ministering peace during anafter surgery. Your gift can help to make a necessary transport to hospital a time of peace and confidence in God rather than trauma, fear, and neglect.
