Are you committed to changing maternity care?
At the 2010 MANA Conference in Nashville, FAM launched the Birth Trust. We have decided that YOU should choose who receives grants to advance midwifery and the gentle birth movement. The Birth Trust is a transparent fund where its Birth Trustees vote on grant-making every year. Birth Trustees make a minimum contribution of $33 a month for one year in order to vote.
We are advertising the Birth Trust to the readers of Mothering, Midwifery Today, and we plan to reach out to doulas, childbirth educators, lactation consultants so that this effort is not limited to the financial resources of midwives alone. We must do this together.
For about a $1 a day, don't you want a say in the projects that promote midwifery policy, research, access, and public education? Make your voice heard! Join us!
