Hi all. I am part of a mom's group that is currently hosting an auction to benefit one of our members. As you may or may not know, I used a midwife at the birth of my son, Lincoln. We were lucky enough to have our insurance cover most of the fees, but some insurance companies still do not recognize midwives as a viable option for women. My good friend, Kari, is currently expecting twins and is hoping to deliver them at home with a midwife, as she did with 3 of her other children. Unfortunately, the insurance they currently have will not cover the cost of a midwife, and with 4 other kids, money is tight. We are holding this auction to help them have the birth they desire for their children. We believe mothers should have a choice in how they give birth, and we want to help Kari achieve her birth by offering some financial assistance. The items up for bid are either handmade or skills donated by other mothers from the group and/or friends. If you are looking for any items for your own children, or for a gift for a baby shower or birthday, please consider checking out the awesome items on the blog. To leave a bid, just place your amount in the comments on the blog. The auction will close March 19th at 8:00 pm, CST. Let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for reading!
