Tomorrow, November 27th is #GivingTuesday. This year, Willow Wish is fundraising to underwrite at least twelve (12) $1500 gifts for Arizona families wishing for a birth center experience in 2019. Facebook and PayPal are matching donations on Facebook for a total of upto $7 million dollars.
Your donations to Willow Wish‘s facebook page could be matched.** Mark your calendar and set your clock to help us reach our $18,000 goal.
Why this #GivingTuesday fundraiser matters:
“The problem isn’t that we don’t know how to make childbirth safer… “Women know what they want when it comes to labor and delivery, and it turns out the things they want (midwives, doulas, fewer unnecessary interventions and cesarean sections) are less expensive and produce better outcomes.” The problem is not that pregnant women are uneducated or uninformed; the problem is that those in charge aren’t listening to them.”

Willow Wish is a scholarship fund seeking to make the birth center experience available to any family in Arizona who would choose a birth center setting, regardless of their ability to pay out-of-pocket. It is our belief that peaceful, evidence-based care should be an option for all.
With your help, we can make a difference for Arizona families who want O-U-T of the hospital system where women and babies are receiving sub-optimal maternity services when their care providers fail, or sometime refuse, to provide evidence-based care. Your donation makes a gift possible to those families who are wishing for a birth center experience with patient-centered care, and can’t afford the out-of-pocket expense on their own.
With your donation, we can make a difference and make their birth center wishes come true. Thank you so much for your passion for and support of Arizona’s birthing families.
