While Black is not synonymous with low income, we cannot ignore the horrific statics regarding birth mortalities, lactation, and infant mortality rates for Black birthing people. And, while not everyone is called to be a birth worker in order to create change, there are other ways that folks can support and positively impact a Black birthers experience.
This pay-it-forward system is for folx to show love and support to Black folx in need. These donations assist in expanding the accessibility of doula and lactation support and services to Black folx regardless of gender or family structure.
This pay-it-forward system is a means of breaking down the financial barrier of Black folx receiving the support/services that they need and deserve. All funds donated will go to covering the costs of doula and lactation support, and supplies that they may need (ie. babywearing wraps, nursing or bottle feeding supplies, etc).
This is about our community, and your support positively impacts our community.
Each donation given, merits a loving message to go with it. Your message can be a message of encouragement, love and support. This part – the note writing part – is optional but makes it so special. The messages are published here and on different pages of the site. If you'd like to provide a loving message, please email it to email@example.com.
When a local Black person or family seeks the services of BLKBRY®, your gift allows them to be embraced with the love and support they needs.
