We have the chance to have many people around the world learn about Midwives and Mama's.  Every year CNN has a show called CNN Hero's.  This year Robin Lim an American Midwife who lives and runs a Bumi Sehat Birth Center in Bali.  has made it to the TOP 10!  It is a big event on CNN with lots of press and the show is played over and over on CNN in US and internationally.  Which means in airports all over the world, politicians offices, and many homes world wide.  If Robin wins we all win.  Robin promotes good care for all pregnant women.  She does not limit this to her birth center or homebirths.  If a mama needs a c-section the clinic pays for it.  Basically her message is MAMA'S AND THEIR BABIES ARE IMPORTANT!

SO can you give 5 min a day for Mamadom??  
You can vote everyday 10x (silly I know but that's the gig)


AND don't forget to take a moment to VOTE for Robin to win CNN hero.

Its not just good for Bali.  It's very important for Mothers and midwives in America (who normally get pretty bad press.)  Here is a chance to show many many people the great work we all do as mama's and midwives.

You can vote everyday up to 10x!

Please keep voting, friends! 


We need everyone with internet access to vote!  Indonesian people just don't have access like many of us here on MDC so please use it for some good today!


I am here in Bali working at Bumi Sehat and happy to answer any questions you all have about what we do and how we do it.  We are entirely funded by donations so winning CNN Hero of the Year would be huge for us!

doula mama to my nov 05 and my feb 08 babes who wrap me in love.
