Help for waterbirths

For those of you who have had a waterbirth or know someone who has, you'll want to know that Waterbirth International needs your help, and quick. Here's a note from their site...

For twenty plus years WBI and Barbara Harper have been guiding mothers and their providers, providing education and birth pools all over the world. Waterbirth International is facing the very difficult truth that the Gentle Birth World Congress - a fabulous success in every way for international and local attendees - drained all of our resources. We may have to close the doors permanently by January 31st.

We need to raise $200,000 in donations to cover the debts from the Congress. With such a large sum to raise, we need each of you to support this cause. When you support waterbirth, you are making a statement that you want and need options, choices and more control.]

Waterbirth International is accepting donations through their web site in hopes of raising enough money to cover their debts before January 31.
