Serving the Community -
With Support from the Community
In able to serve the community while still providing for my family, support from the community is crucial. Well supported and healthy moms go through life feeling more capable in raising their children - thus raising a happier, healthier next generation.
This creates more sustainable communities in both physical and mental health.
I love offering the village prenatals for free or by donation, but they do incur costs. By donating to Raven & Oak, I can continue to offer village prenatals, low cost childbirth education, free spots at workshops, and keep the lights on while I work as an herbalist and midwife.
This all works to keep holistic, wise woman care more accessible to those who want it.
I am currently looking to raise $2500 to help finish gathering good quality tools & herbs for births as well as more tools for educating moms. Once everything is purchased, the remaining money will go into covering the operating costs of the village prenatals and spots at workshops.
For those interested in donating, to me and what I do, you can send donations through Paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org or click the donate button below.
Here is general list of things I am looking to purchase with donations:
Hemoglobin tester with cartridges
3 more hemostats and 2 scissors
Higher quality infant stethoscope
Another fetoscope used for teaching mamas in both one on one prenatals and at village prenatals
Higher quality newborn scale (my current scale would then act as a back up)
Neonatal resuscitation items (non oxygen related)
A fully stocked home birth kit (underpads, scrub brushes, pads, panties etc.. in case a family can’t afford a kit)
Childbirth and breastfeeding education models
Rebozos for childbirth classes - supporting small handmade woman owned businesses
US grown herbs for tinctures, baths, and teas
Organic grape alcohol for high quality gluten free tinctures
