help Ari be born!

help Ari be born!

This is a fundraiser for the birth of Mauricio and Chrystal’s baby boy Ari. We are trying to raise $4,000 by mid July to pay for Ari’s delivery at the natural birth center in Whittier, Ca. We do not want our baby delivered in the hospital for a great number of reasons that are very important to us, but our insurance will not cover a natural out of hospital birth.Hospital routines are very impersonal and unnatural especially when it comes to birth. This results in rushed or forced labor, unnecessary stress to the baby and mom, and often an unneeded c-sections. This manipulation and detachment from the doctors makes us un comfortable and is very frightening for Chrystal. Chrystal suffered many years of severe childhood abuse, and in an intimate moment like this being forced to have unneeded medication or forced delivery would be very traumatic for her. She will not be having any medication for pain or to induce labor. This will be an all-natural birth.We want to start Ari’s beautiful little life in a gentle loving way, as we all should have. We do not want him to be pulled away from mama by tools and taken away to have that first important moment stolen from us by having him jostled around by strangers in a bright scary room full of machines. Needless intervention often subverts the importance of the role of family at the very onset of our lives together. There is no room for this assembly line “get it over with” mentality in the delivery room. The birth center does not have procedures such as this. A woman’s body is made to nurture and birth a baby; they are not built to malfunction which is the assumption in hospitals. Ari and Chrystal are both very healthy and will not need any of these harsh practices.At the birth center there will be no medications to induce labor or stifle the natural chemicals changes needed to give birth. They do not even offer such things because they are not needed and are generally problematic. There is a much lower possibility of having a c-section or unnecessary surgery. Our midwife is very caring and present and will be the one to help deliver. Ari will be born in a quiet room in water with only mom, dad, and the midwife. He will get to be held immediately by mama Chrystal and daddy Mauricio only. He will stay with us the whole time and will be cared for by us. No strangers, no scary hospital, and no rude doctors.Our insurance is covering the prenatal care but will not cover an out of hospital birth. Im sure you have all experienced an unsatisfying encounter with a detached, awkward, doctor who did not answer your questions and just treated you like a way to get a paycheck. Please help us not have our little guy’s first moments be like this. If you have any questions at all or would like to speak with us about any of this please feel free to contact us! Donations can be small. We know that funds are sparse these days. But, if you think about spending money on something temporary like a cell phone, that pack of beer, or eating out it seems frivolous if you can do something so important and more permanent. We appreciate your help very much! Chrystal will be giving prizes to the top three donators. The people who donate the largest amount will receive one free tattoo or original art piece of their choice from her. Everyone else who donates will receive an art print or t shirt to show our gratitude. Again thank you so much for taking time to consider and donate to this very special event. Help us make this happen!!!!
