Love A Mama Midwifery Scholarship
Love, Adriel & the Collective
(You can check out the smartband here if you'd like: http://www.projectnursery.com.au/product/mum-bub-smartband/)
Update Saturday, May 13: We are about $240 shy of our goal of sending Jerina for her third year of midwifery training! She will be the FIRST woman in her area to have achieved higher education. She is making HISTORY. Also, FYI: if we exceed this year's goal, all funds will be rolled over to our next maternal health project.

Love A (Vulnerable) Mama this Mother's Day
Since 2011 the women of the Love A Mama Collective have been using Mother’s Day as an important reminder: safe birth is not something every woman has access to. All over the world women are giving birth in places where medical care is not accessible and sanitation is poorly understood. Instead of celebrating Mother’s Day with breakfast in bed like we do in nations like the USA, Australia, and others, countless mothers in developing nations are absent from their families because they’ve lacked simple resources, health education, and access to qualified maternal care.
The Love A Mama Collective exists to see this change.
Your donation to the 2017 Love A Mama Mother's Day Drive will fund the third year of a midwifery scholarship for a young women named Jerina to receive training in central India where she’ll be serving an area with zero access to maternal health care. (In fact, her entire state of 25 million has 18 OBGYNs if you can believe that.)
Not only is this young woman studying to become a midwife, but she's in training to know how to help train other birth attendants to serve these remote communities along with her. She’s a midwife with a mission of multiplication—women empowering women—to see the statistics turned around in their area.
