Birthing close to home: a dream come true for many women.

Help us open a new birth center in Patzcuaro for women to access the dignified, quality care they deserve.

Our story

 Campaign summary:

Since the moment we opened the Birth Home in Patzcuaro as a pilot project a couple months ago, it has truly been a success. Nine women have chosen this location to experience an empowering birth, pointing out the advantage of it being this closer to their homes. Many women are from La Valenciana, a poor neighborhood with lots of needs, amongst them, the need of women for dignified, quality care.   

As a pilot project the Birth Home has proven that there is a real need for this service and now Mujeres Aliadas wants to take it a step forward. The situation is ideal: we have a beautiful space that is being donated for us y to use and we have a volunteer midwife to help for a year. The only things we need to turn this shared dream into a reality is your support.

We want to raise $8,000 dollars to make a few adaptations to the room and buy some basic equipment, to make it more comfortable and secure for women and their families. We need another midwife to help and supplies for the rest of the year. With the money we raise will also make a fund to help at least 10 women who would like to birth with us, but can’t afford to pay it all.

Help us open our Birth Center in Patzcuaro! Give women the chance to experience dignified, quality care close to their homes! Help us change the world one birth at a time!

Why it matters:

For more than a decade, Mujeres Aliadas has worked to promote rights and provide sexual and reproductive healthcare based on the model of Professional Midwifery. We’ve heard, seen and experienced the reality that many women experience while giving birth at a public hospital. The horror stories include verbal violence, unnecessary procedures, negligence and abuse.

Turning this pilot project into a real Birth Center will give women from this neighborhood access to high quality care that otherwise would be inaccessible for them. It also is a convenient location for other women in Patzcuaro and surrounding villages, allowing more women and families to experience a beautiful empowering birth.

There is a phrase from a French Obstetrician, Michael Odent that says: “To change the world, we must first change the way babies are being born.”

Help us open our Birth Center in Patzcuaro! Help us change the world one birth at a time!

How will the funds be used?

The first $5,500 we raise will go into turning the space into a comfortable, safe environment for women to give birth in. It includes the salary for a second midwife, adaptations to the birthing room, accommodations for the family, and some additional equipment and supplies.

The second $2,500 dollars will go directly to help women who can’t afford our price of $5,000 pesos (USD $250) a birth. With this amount we can help at least 10 women, more if some women are able to contribute a portion of the fee. 

If if we exceed our goal of $8,000 USD, we will use those funds to expand our support for women who cannot afford these fees.

Every dollar you invest in this project adds, but to encourage larger donations that can help us get closer to our goal we have a few perks:

$25 USD – You will receive a ‘thank you email’ from someone in the team.

$50 USD – You will receive a personal ‘thank you letter’ from someone in the team

$100 USD – You will receive a personal ‘thank you video’ from the team

$200 USD – You will receive a personal call from the Executive Director, to thank you and answer any questions that you might have about Mujeres Aliadas
