Our goal is to always make sure families have access to the knowledge and nurturing they need to be the parents they want to be. So our services are always free of cost and judgement.
Every dollar makes an impact.
$25 can provide a box of diapers for an under-resourced family or room rental for one of our support groups
$50 can provide birth recovery supplies and feminine hygiene products (not covered by federal benefits), or a hot meal to a new family without support.
$100 can provide 3 hours of postpartum doula support for a new mother at risk for mental health struggles, who lacks both a local village and the funds to afford the support themselves.
$1000 can provide a full eight session of professional maternal mental health therapy for a mom in true need.
$1500 can provide the invaluable preventative and supportive benefits of a birth doula for a local Black underserved mother in our community.

- the physical and emotional challenges, the sleeplessness, and the enormous learning curve - is a powerful source of perspective and support.
