I am now at 26 1/2 week! Only about a week to raise bulk of funds. Thank you all that have contributed so far. Love & blesdings Willa & fam See More

THE STORY:

We will use the money to pay for midwife care and an out of hospital birth at a birth center. In CA, insurance companies do not contract with midwives so to have a baby at home or at a birth center it costs a great deal of money out of pocket up front with no guarantee of reimbursement. I was born at home on The Farm with a midwife in 1977 and my daughter was born 7 years ago on the Farm with a midwife. We have opted to have our son in a birthing center with a midwife here in Berkeley, CA. I am currently 23 weeks along in my pregnancy and need to pay majority of costs by 28 weeks. Yikes that is so close. Anyways, this will be a huge financial drain and with new baby on the way any help is greatly appreciated. We have been given tons of baby gear from some close friends, so in lieu of gifts we are asking that you contribute to our birthing fund. Please do not feel obligated to donate, only if this is something you feel passionate about and want to help.
