If you can provide pro-bono translation support for this critical resource, please contact us.
We're providing a two-pronged response.
1. As part of our efforts to deliver PPE directly into the hands of healthcare providers, we are distributing masks to labor and delivery midwives, nurses and other nursing staff at HHC & Community Hospitals and Birth Centers. As well as doulas serving NYC clients.
We've donated to Brookdale Hospital, Metropolitan Hospital, Elmhurst Hospital, Wyckoff Hospital, North Central Bronx Hospital, and Woodhull Hospital and are organizing to expand donations to other institutions.
2. To conserve critical hospital supplies, protect healthcare workers and birthing families, we are sourcing and producing personal hygiene and PPE kits for birthing families.
Please support our efforts and join the fight to protect labor and delivery staff, doulas, and birthing families in NYC during the COVID-19 Pandemic. All donations go to purchasing and distributing masks & kits to birthing professionals and families.
