Greetings Birth Community,
We write you today with an urgent call for assistance for our beloved sistar in birth, Midwife Claudia Booker. Her automobile was broken into Sunday night. Thousands of dollars in equipment that has been accumulated over the years is now gone and will have to be replaced ASAP so that her livelihood can continue. The insurance company is covering a small percentage of her loss plus providing windshield repair and a rental car so that she can continue the work of caring for the women in her community. She has a full calendar or prenatal visits, births and doula clients over the next several weeks and needs to replenish her supplies and equipment swiftly.
Any contribution of homebirth specific supplies or gently used / new equipment that you can spare would be greatly appreciated. Please email BirthHandsDC@gmail.com for shipping information. Alternatively, you can send a monetary gift via PayPal to BirthHandsDC@gmail.com or through this verified gofundme link http://www.gofundme.com/MidwifeClaudia so that she can place orders directly from her regular list of vendors.
