Time to Help Another

Over the last few years I’ve seen some amazing acts by amazing people.

The last few months I’ve seen women raise money to help others with their homebirths through Birth Without Fear. I’ve seen people donate to a family that lost their baby to SUDC, and others that have donated milk to a man that lost his wife in the birth of their daughter.

But no one has impressed me more than Amber. Two and a half years ago she found a used Ameda Elite and kit for me to use and set up the donation fund. Last year she and her husband took on a project that still makes me smile whenever I think of it – a breastfeeding calendar, which they barely break even on but it helps so many. They are doing this for a second year now and I am so excited for them.

The biggest thing Amber has done though is helping others with birth. She is a doula and midwifery student through Ancient Arts Midwifery Institute, but more than that she helps women trust themselves. A lot of the faith and trust I had for my UBAC was because of her. I never would have even considered a UC for any of my children if she hadn’t come into my life.

Right now, she is on the path to becoming a midwife, and in my opinion, a midwife the world needs. The only problem is supplies. Most midwives have a bit of money to pick up what they need or they do it slowly throughout their apprenticeship, but even then they spend thousands just getting the basics together.

I want to pay Amber back for all the good she has done. The world needs a midwife like her, one that trusts women completely, and money shouldn’t stand in the way of that.

Consider helping her out. Even just $1 is more help than you know.

Instead of setting up a Paypal or fund like that, an account has been set up through Midwifery Supplies Canada. This way you can send $1 or $100 or actually buy an item for her, but no shipping costs and no fees so she can just pick it up, and that way you know your money is actually going to something. The best of both worlds.

Best part- Amber has some goodies if you donate.
$10: a handwritten note, birth quote, and bookmark
$25: a one hour distance Reiki session
$100: a free 2014 breastfeeding calendar

It may not seem like much, but truly every dollar helps. All you need to do is either donate money HERE or buy an item HERE. When you buy any item, just add in the comments or notes when you buy it’s for Amber.

Easy peasy and you could be helping someone achieve something amazing.
