Okay, here it is! All that I have been working so hard for, what prompted the growth mindset of Huron Birth- my heart & soul...
Huron Birth Maternal Outreach Fund.
Anyone who knows me knows that I have a big heart for community. Living in community with others has truly made my life as a parent so much better.
They would also know that I have a big heart for supporting families through pregnancy, birth and into parenting. These are the golden years folks!
I’m not referring to the state of our homes, sanity, or appearances. Ha! These years are golden because this is when we lay the groundwork for lasting bonds, where we learn to communicate with our partners optimally-to create a safe place for our growing families, where we grow into confident and capable parents, where we develop attunement and resiliency within our family.
It has been such a blessing working with families in the perinatal period of their lives. I feel SO privledged to witness so much vulnerability and raw love. It is a beautiful reminder of what humanity is and is always challenging me as a Mother, Wife, Friend and Community Member.
That being said, there is a VOID. There is a VOID in the Perinatal Support that is available to the vulnerable members of our community and it hurts. Down to my core, I know that in building relationships, providing optimal support, and making community connections through these golden years, of a family’s life- is HUGE! I know that investing in a Doula is worth it, I know that investing in support for the perinatal period of a vulnerable family’s life is worth it.
I have been supporting vulnerable families through this golden period for years now. I have worked with many families out of the goodness of my heart, with a significantly reduced rate, or sometimes through the support of sparse funding of other local organizations. The reality is that despite the need and value; there is not funding readily available for this in our area.
When passionate about something: I become quite the “do-er”. This Huron Birth Maternal Outreach Fund is my response to this void. By growing Huron Birth into a team, we are able to do more! This fund will supply Birth & Postpartum support to the vulnerable members of our community. A percentage of all Doula services and groups/ workshops run through Huron Birth will be put in this fund. We will also be hosting some exciting events and fundraisers to raise funds for the Huron Birth Maternal Outreach Fund.
This next week is going to be an exciting time for Huron Birth! Our new website is launching, we have some EPIC giveaways planned, and new events to be announced! But, it just wouldn’t of felt proper to start off the party without explaining the heart & soul behind it first.
