Checkout Donation to Birthing Kit Foundation (Australia)
The BodyWise BirthWise Store is a proud member of the Business for Birthing Kit Partner Program with Birthing Kit Foundation Australia (BKFA).
This is a not-for-profit, non-government organisation dedicated to improving conditions for women who give birth at home in developing countries.
Most of the women BKFA assists are for reasons of isolation, cultural choice, poor transport means or have little or no assistance during childbirth. By providing a clean birthing kit these mothers will have the resources to reduce infection.
Birthing Kits are an internationally accepted intervention to support a clean birth.
Each item in the BKFA Birthing Kit works to reduce infections at key high-risk
moments of care during labour, birth and immediately post-birth for the mother,
newborn and birth attendant.
Each kit contains 6 disposable components and are assembled by volunteers in Australia.
BKFA also aims to promote sustainable change, fund midwifery training programs to educate birth attendants and to empower these women through education.
The gift of safer births empowers women to take control of their futures and live safer, happier, more fulfilled lives. These donations really do have the potential to save the life of a mother and baby through the use of the birthing kit.
As of mid 2019, the cost of the Kit increased to $5. Although, I'm keeping the donation cost at $3 for customers and I'll happily donate the extra $2.
Please consider adding this simple, but extremely worthwhile donation to your order. Thank you!
