Weʼre raising £500 to support Doulas Without Borders and their mission to provide accessible grassroots services to women and childbearing people.
- United Kingdom
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
"Doulas Without Borders is so, so vital to women who find themselves with no support during pregnancy and birth, or who are dealing with added stress and trauma. We need to be supported in such a vulnerable time."
Doulas Without Borders is a voluntary network, offering accessible grass-roots support to those experiencing multiple disadvantage and financial hardship during pregnancy, birth and early parenthood.
We provide companionship, advocacy, support and signposting, we help when we can with translation, helping to build bridges and create community for those whose lived have been fractured by circumstance.
Our clients often have no baby clothes or phone credit to let loved ones know when baby arrives or no money for a meal after the birth. Our team members need funds to get to our service users, get birth plans printed or buy a coffee to stay up through the night with someone in labour. Every penny counts.
Learn more about supporting our mission to make birth accesible, empowering, and joyful for women and birthing people across the UK @ Doulas Without Borders or give us a follow on Facebook @ Doulas Without Borders.
