What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Hi there, I’m a Doula and Doula Educator who’s raising money to fund a start-up for a new project called ‘Doulas Without Borders’, which will provide Doulas (supporting and empowering companions) to vulnerable women and their babies during pregnancy, birth and in early motherhood.

There are pregnant women all over the U.K (and the world) who are alone and unsupported, who need our help right now, and a Doula can provide that companionship, support, empowerment, education and nurture, which can make all the difference to a woman’s experience and that of her newborn.

We know that this time is key for making positive change and that this time is creating an imprint for the baby’s future life, so this is very much a social change project. We aim, with your help, to contribute to making a positive step towards healing the next generation by leaving a legacy of love and nurture.

DWB will offer training, specialised additional workshops and ongoing supervision for all our Doulas, will be a resource for vulnerable women and a database for organsiations who are looking for Doulas to support those referred women.

We aim to pay a small fee for each ‘job’ to those Doulas who can commit to 3 births a year and we already have many people who want to help, including some voluntarily. Your money will also go towards setting up a website resource, to training up and down the U.K (and Internationally) ensuring the payment and ongoing supervision for each Doula, to maintaining an online database and offering additional development, safeguarding and ongoing support for the women and for the organisation.
