At the Centre itself. It's in Nyuh Kuning, just south of Ubud. (directions at the bottom of this post)

They specify visitor hours: "Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays between 10 am and 2 pm." but I am sure donations are welcome anytime! They just may not have time to show you around outside those hours, as they are a working centre.

There is also a 'donate now' option on their website; if you don't make it down there during your visit.

www.bumisehatbali.org.

I thought I would add here some info about visiting 'immediate needs' I just copied off their website:

(some of them are specialist medical items, but as the OP here has demonstrated, medical professionals travel too!)

Immediate Supply Needs

1) Sterile Gloves (Size 7 and 7.5)

2) Bactroban

3) Lidocaine (Liquid form, 2%, non-expired)

4) Infant Receiving Blankets

5) Waterproof Fetal Doppler Machines (Brand: Huntleigh; www.1cascade.com)

6) Umbilical Cord Clamps

Other Needs

1) Children and Infant Vitamin

2) Aloe Vera Gel

3) Digital Thermometers (in Centigrade)

4) Otoscopes

5) Sterile Gloves (Size 6.5 and 8)

6) Newborn Cotton T-shirts and Hats

Directions to Bumi Sehat in Nyuh Kuning, Bali

Once you arrive to Ubud, we are located south of Monkey Forest in the

village of Nyuh Kuning (pr. 'Nee-ew Koo-ning'). If you ask a taxi driver

to drive you to Nyuh Kuning, either the taxi driver or anyone in the

village you ask will know the location of the clinic. If you are walking

from central Ubud, it's relatively easy to walk to the southern most area

of Monkey Forest, exit and then follow that road through Nyuh Kuning until

you see the clinic on the right.

(THIS IS ACTUALLY QUITE A HIKE!)

We have been visiting the clinic for a few years now, I just get the hotel to ring ahead and ask "is it's OK to come now" and then get a lift with the hotel driver. When you get there tell them you want to make a donation they will take you into their office and ask you to sign the visitors book and offer a receipt.

They always offer to give us a tour and last time was the first time I said yes as my daughter loves baby's and wanted to look around. Well she was in for a shock we saw some young mothers and my daughter still talks about how one girl looked the same age as she was (10 at the time) I'm sure the mother was older than ten! but she was young.

I'm a hairdresser and all my clients know about it and ask when I'm going again so they can get their baby clothes ready :)

Hi I would just like to let those interested that we are raising funds for Bumi Sehat by organising a High Tea to be held in Sydney on 20 November as you can see from the posts they desperately need funds to continue there work and we hope to be able to raise money that will be donated to Bumi Sehat. If you are interested in finding out more about our Fundraising for Bumi Sehat please reply to this post.

No we aim to make this an annual event, it is unfortunate that you are unable to attend, but if you can let others know who are interested in the work of bumi sehat that would be really helpful..thank you
