Deer Tender Souls,
I am writing to you to ask for your help. This past month I have been gifted doula trainings at a discounted price. I say gifted because I know shináli Lucy (my grandmother, who returned to Spirit this past New Years Eve) is answering my prayers.
During her transition back to Spirit, I was able to act as her death doula, & in her last hours this side, all kinds of clarity was communicated between us, including the fact she was also a birthworker. Postpartum doula care could be one way to describe shináli's work. She held new birth parents as they held new babies. She fed them, bathed them, & kept their space tidy. All in all, she spent her working years simply loving them. This is what I want to do, love & care for & support new parents & their families.
The femmeiverse is all about this life path for me! I asked shináli to help me if this was really what I am supposed to do, & as soon as I gave myself permission to be in the world as a femme birthworker community healer, these doula training opportunities just started coming my way.
Even though these trainings are at a reduced cost, it is still more than my broke ass can afford. I'm squeezing by & fronting the costs, hoping that you & other folks can come through to help me out with expenses.
As of today, I am needing help with $315. It breaks down like this:
***02/22 Update: Only $240 left to raise!
***02/28 Update: Only $125 left to raise!
***03/04 Update: Only $60 left to raise!
THANKS FOR THE DONATIONS! xoxo
Any monetary support you can offer will help me continue living the luxurious lifestyle of a single mama, buying groceries & tea, gas for rides, keeping us warm with the lights on, with lipstick. I'm happy to arrange a pickup or drop off if you're in Salt Lake, or you can donate to my paypal through my email firstname.lastname@example.org or the paypal button on this website.
Thanks so much for reading, for any woo & love, & for sharing my ask for help. Please help my dreams keep coming true, & if & when you want a doula in the Salt Lake area, it could be me!
