Where your money goes
Supporting vulnerable and isolated pregnant women and new mums
Bethel Doula Service supports some of the most vulnerable, isolated and destitute pregnant women in Birmingham. The women we help range in background from vulnerable teenage mums and women escaping abusive situations, to asylum seekers and refugees.
These women have nothing at all to welcome their new babies into this world; no nappies, no baby-grows, no blankets, no towels, no toys… nothing at all. For themselves, they have no sanitary towels, no toiletries, nothing… not even toothpaste. Many also go through hours of childbirth alone. No partner, no family, and no friends to hold their hand and let them know they’ll be OK.
Emergency baby packs
Every time you make a £10 donation, Bethel Doula Service is able to put together an Emergency Maternity Pack for an expectant vulnerable mother; filled with baby-wear and necessary toiletries and other items.
An Emergency Maternity Pack helps the mums we support to give birth to their babies knowing that at least they’ll have a few of the most essential items.
Supporting mental health
Our Rapha Service provides a listening ear for those who are experiencing a difficult time in their lives and are suffering low level mental health problems. Our trained volunteers are able to sincerely listen to those who need to talk without fear of judgement.
Your donation will not only help to purchase to purchase essentials for our vulnerable women and their babies, but will also help to cover the expenses and training of our volunteers for both our Doula and Rapha service.
We are not able to accept donated items at the moment
We’ve been overwhelmed by the generosity of our supporters to the point where we have run out of room to safely store any more donated items.
We’ll let you know when we can accept goods again on this page and through social media.
Donated items – what we are looking for
When we are able to accept goods, we would really like things we can use with our mums and baby group particularly:
- Prizes and gifts
Normally you will need to drop off items to our office in Balsall Health Birmingham, but if we have a member of the team that lives locally to you we may be able to collect.
Contact us with details of your donation and we’ll do our best to make things happen.
