Help us get 150 prenatal and 150 lactation bundles to Black and Pacific Islander pregnant women and birthing people in San Francisco.
In partnership with the Abundant Birth Project, Natural Resources is asking our community to purchase Pregnancy and Postpartum bundles that will go directly to Abundant Birth Project participants.
The Abundant Birth Project is a program within Expecting Justice, a "Black-led, cross-sector initiative consisting of city agencies, community-based organizations, health providers, and community members. In partnership with the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) California Preterm Birth Initiative (PTBi-CA), Expecting Justice is taking an innovative, multi-component approach, using racial equity as a framework, to address key dimensions of vulnerability faced by Black and Pacific Islander women and birthing people during pregnancy and childbirth."
The Abundant Birth Project (ABP) is a pilot program that will provide Black and Pacific Islander pregnant women and birthing people with a monthly income supplement during their pregnancy and post-natal periods. This program recognizes that racism has shut far too many Black and Pacific Islander parents out of the resources they need for healthy births. Providing cash during pregnancy is an expedient and humanizing way to support mamas during this critical period of life.
Please help us in supporting our ABP mamas to birth abundantly with these postpartum and pregnancy bundles.
If you would like a donation receipt please fill out this form. The receipt will come from Heluna Health for Abundant Birth Project.
About Play It Forward
San Francisco is filled with people and organizations doing important work. There are times when those folx could benefit from the pregnancy, birth and parenting items on Natural Resources’ shelves. PLAY IT FORWARD connects organizations who need these items with people who want to donate them, via Natural Resources.
So: pick a cause you want to support, and get them some needed supplies! Thank you!!!
Natural Resources, a nonprofit that supports families through classes, community and safe products, wants to make it easy for all of us to support orgs doing meaningful work in SF. To help, purchase the items which have been requested. We will coordinate delivery to them directly. Your purchases support both Natural Resources (rather than a big box store or Amazon) and the organization the items are being donated to.
