Gift Box Sponsorship Program:
Gift boxes can now be donated on your behalf in your city! For a set donation, we will send a gift box a month for a year to an organization helping mamas in your area. If you, or your company is interested in participating in this program, please send an email to email@example.com.
Chicago, Illinois: Chicago Birthworks Collective, sponsored by a private donor. Chicago Birthworks Collective is a full service Birth and Postpartum doula collective providing culturally centered reproductive health support to Black families across the Chicago area, including comprehensive birth and postpartum doula support, pregnancy and birth education plus an array of pampering mom and baby services. Our mission is simple: providing the birth and postpartum support we know Black families deserve and desire for an empowered, educated and enjoyable reproductive journey.
Doulas Sponsored by In Kind Boxes:
For 2021 In Kind is sponsoring two doulas to receive monthly gift boxes. We believe that doulas are very helpful for families, and we want to support the wonderful work they’re doing. We chose these two winners via an application process we shared about in October of 2020. We chose an applicant from Oregon, as well as one from Minnesota. Our first winner is Doula Kaytee. We are grateful for the work she does supporting families in need, and we want to support Black mamas wherever possible.
“I work with an organization that partners doulas with birthing parents on medical assistance who may not be able to afford the care they need from a doula. Sometimes we’re their only support person. I also try to do sliding scale for BIPOC clients for doula care and babywearing consults. Being Black myself, I know how important it is to have outside help that can advocate for you and care for you. I’ve experienced a lot of racism in healthcare and want to be able to be a voice for my parents who experience that.” -Doula Kaytee
Our second winner is local to us here in Oregon- Pacific Northwest Doulas. They are seeking to give back to the community, by working with mamas who are on the Oregon Health Plan.
“We have a large focus on families who have experienced loss, are pregnant after loss, have anxiety, and have medical trauma. We are also contracted as an OHP provider. he shift in our clientele is big- working with more people who just need to feel special and loved.” -Annie Willems
