    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    For years we've talked about Birthing Classes... and we all have a view on what they are like... but a while ago a group of us here at BTUH found this thing called HypnoBirthing... hypnotherapy for childbirth and, as we've found it works for childbirth and can help for so much more.

    So, we've started training up our midwives, we've started running courses, via skype (now that's really 21st century, eh?), and so far results have been really positive. It's another example of how we are helping women & their partners in the Basildon and Thurrock area to have access to the best, most up-to-date and in this case innovative care.

    We are trying to keep the costs down, in some places these HypnoBirthing course can run to the hundreds of pounds. but we are trying to offer the Skype course for £21. !!! Yes £21 !!! (its just the cost of the printed material). But not every mum to be has the finances to pay for the course, we do have some in our area who are not so fortunate and we still want to help them as well.

    As midwives we'd love to be able to fund this, and unfortunately our maternity unit, doesn't have its own charity, (yet, but watch this space!) So for now this is the only way we can ask for donations. So that's what we are doing. If you've read this far, please help us help rollout this innovative birthing experience to anyone who wants to use it.

    Any amount will help from £1 upwards will help.

    Many Thanks
    Becky Tranter, midwife at Maternity Direct+
