Heart-funded Birth Information
I make my living from lecturing, writing and consultancy, but I also run a website, a twice-weekly blog and a facebook page - and hopefully more in the future - which share up-to-the minute information, research and discussion. They are all completely free.
That bit is really important to me, and it's why I've created this donations page. It's all free, and I really want to keep it that way. No ads, no selling baby or parenting products that might affect my objectivity, and no paywall.
Lots of people tell me I could charge for what I do, and I know that's true. I know that many people would happily pay a few pounds a year to see what I'm writing about - thank you - but that's not going to help the women who don't know where to go for information except by googling. I want my work to be out there and freely accessible for those women, rather than hidden behind a paywall, and that's where I'd really like your help.
In 2014, I managed to fund this project (whose costs include website, techy tools, access to information and sometimes expertise and assistance - I give my time for free at the moment) from donations given to me by lovely people who bought little home-made fabric hearts (hence heart-funded) at my workshops and conferences.
If you find my work useful and want to keep it free for midwives and birthworkers, or if you see true value in offering independent, woman-centred, evidence-informed and heart-funded birth-related information for women, please click the button and make a donation :)
Thank you very much,
P.S. If you've come here by accident and you don't know who on earth I am, or if you'd like to see what I do for yourself, you can find me on the web at www.sarawickham.com and on facebook at www.facebook.com/saramidwife - I look forward to seeing you there :)
