After a discouraging birth experience, I've decided to help make sure other mothers feel empowered, not bullied, during their births, and to ensure that they receive proper postpartum and breastfeeding support.  I was lucky enough to be approved ...

**UPDATE** I hit my original goal fo $600, but I want to keep going... If I can raise even more money, I'll be able to register for all of the BAI courses I've wanted to take at once, plus I could get the school supplies I'll need, and any donations left over after all my school stuff is covered can go to Improving Birth, an organization that helps women get respectful births! So let's keep going!

After a discouraging birth experience, I've decided to help make sure other mothers feel empowered, not bullied, during their births, and to ensure that they receive proper postpartum and breastfeeding support. 

I was lucky enough to be approved for a scholarship for my doula/postpartum doula/breastfeeding educator training courses. However, they still cost $600 which is no small expense for a military family with a young child. Plus, my scholarship award is only valid if I enroll within a month's time. That is why I am asking for your help.

Any amount will be greatly appreciated, and if you can't afford to help, words of encouragement are always nice as well. This is a big step for me... One that I hope will lead me down a very fulfilling path.

Thank you.
