Become a Donor

Transform Lives Through Your Generosity

Welcome to the heart of Birth Equity Resource, where your generosity paves the way for brighter beginnings. Becoming a donor is more than a contribution; it’s an investment in the well-being of expectant families seeking a fair and equitable start to parenthood. Midwifery care has been proven to reduce preterm birth, low birth weight babies,  and unnecessary interventions that lead to cesareans. The Midwifery Model of care is known to increase client satisfaction through shared decision making and evidence based care.

Financial Contributions, Empower Families Financially

Your financial support is a lifeline for families seeking home birth and facing economic challenges during pregnancy. Most home birth providers do not accept insurance for their services (insurances constant benefit denials or underpaying their services), forcing clients to pay out of pocket. More families are reading the research on positive maternal outcomes from hiring a doula, seeking childbirth education, receiving acupuncture, physical therapy and chiropractic care prenatally and during postpartum. In addition, they must get birth supplies necessary to be prepared to experience birth at home. Along with the recognition towards optimal maternal birth outcomes, comes the financial obstacles that are overwhelming and can be detrimental for many families that cannot afford care. 

Your contributions directly impact autonomy, emotional and physical well-being of expectant parents.

How Your Money Works:

  • Clients must apply, state their hardship, and tell us who their midwife is.
  • Midwives in the community will register with BER, exercise birth outcome transparency and pay a small annual fee to be known to the fund.
  • Midwives must show that they are also giving a minimum discount to clients facing financial hardship who apply for a scholarship.
