Bloggers for Birth Kits

Adriel of The Mommyhood Memos is spearheading a fabulous project for Mother’s Day! It’s easy to become involved. Here’s what you need to know …

  • The maternal death rate in Papua New Guinea is 1 in 7. Think for a moment how many friends you know who have experienced birth in the last year. I can easily think of 14, maybe even 21 that I know in real life. Many more if I could my internet friends. Now imagine if 2 of those friends were gone, and their babies were alone.
  • A clean birth kit can make all the difference. Mamas in Papua New Guinea have a much better chance at surviving birth with a clean birth kit. They only cost $2-3 to prepare or with a donation of $10 you can sponsor 5 kits!

Make Mother’s Day truly meaningful this year by changing the future of mamas across the world. There are 4 ways to participate … 

  • Assemble your own kit(s) and mail to Adriel in Australia, address here
  • Make an online donation here, write “Bloggers for Birth Kits” in the box that says “additional comments” so the funds will be allocated properly
  • Raise awareness on Facebook, your blog, Twitter, etc., use #B4BirthKits
  • Add the Bloggers for Brith Kits button to your blog, here’s the code: <a href=”http://themommyhoodmemos.com/bloggers-for-birth-kits” target=”_blank”><img alt=”The Mommyhood Memos Bloggers for Birth Kits” src=”http://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m223/adrielmc/bloggersforbirthkitslogo125.jpg” /></a>

It breaks my heart to think that mamas in Papua New Guinea won’t have the same opportunity I have to experience the blessing of motherhood. I’m excited to be participating in Bloggers for Birth Kits for the 2nd year and hope you will jump on board too!

    This is an amazing project! I am setting up a blog post about it for this week, and I sent a link to several of my friends: doulas and midwives I know locally. Thanks so much for sharing!

    I have access to gloves and gauze where I work, I'm going to make a few dozen and dedicate it to my mum for mothers day (next week in Australia)
