LUNA MAYA, CASA DE PARTOS
Luna Maya Birth Center works to ensure that all women in Chiapas have access to humanized health care, including safe and humanized birth. We believe that women in Chiapas have the right to make informed choices about their bodies and have access to the necessary resources to ensure health and wellbeing. We believe in access to safe motherhood as a human right leading to the empowerment of women, enhancements in quality of life, and the strengthening of families.
Our organization is dedicated to the holistic health of women and families and to the promotion of sexual and reproductive rights and the right to safe motherhood. We invite you to get to know our center and the services and educational programs we offer!

Luna Maya needs your support! We are in the midst of a fundraising campaign for much needed support that will let us continue our work with women and families in Chiapas, México. You can collaborate through cash donations, through the donation of computer equipment and medical supplies, through hosting a fundraising event in your city, or through our new program Sponsor a Birth! As of september 2009 we are no longer funded and would like to be able to sustain our low prices and service to the community. We need your help! Click on any one of the links to read more and help us continue our important and unique work.
Please note: At this time we are not accepting apprentices who are not Mexican and do not live in Mexico. We are focusing on increasing the number of midwives who serve women in Mexico. If you are not Mexican or do not live in Mexico please do not apply to our apprenticeship program.
Childbirth Education and Beyond
Our commitment to birth is profound and we know that birth entails more than a woman and a baby, it involves immediate and extended family, our community and our culture.

And it is not our object to destroy civilization. We do not desire to “divide up,” as people are in the habit of saying; we do not wish to throw humanity back into barbarism; on the contrary, we desire to lift the whole of humanity to the highest thinkable plane of civilization. We wish every individual without exception to have a share in the means of culture and education according to his capacities and his needs. This is the loftiest ideal that the human race can set before itself; and this ideal is possible today because it is only now that, in consequence of the thousands of years of progress towards civilization and of the tremendous acquisitions which man has gained in this age of culture; because only now are all the means and possibilities given through which we may realize this ideal condition in the way that the majority of men desire to realize it.
