THE STORY:

Hello friends, Being a mother is a life-changing event. For some women, pregnancy and childbirth result in less than ideal outcomes. Did you know that African American women have lower birth outcomes than any other race? The Birthing Project USA was created to support women of color during this important time. The project is modeled as a big sister/sister-friend program, where a participant in the program is assigned a sister who will support her during pregnancy and through the baby's first year of life. The Birthing Project USA has so far supported tens of thousands of healthy pregnancies and births all over the US- and beyond! We don't yet have a local chapter of the Birthing Project (BP) here in the Bay Area, and I think that needs to change. Please help me raise funds to send two local women to a training and international conference to learn all about how to lead a BP USA group! We're on a tight timeline, as the conference is in Little Rock, Arkansas November 5-8. Anything you can donate will go towards travel, accommodations, and conference registration, plus some meals. For more information about the Birthing Project, visit the website: http://birthingprojectusa.org/intro.html In gratitude and health, Lauren Gendler
