I love being able to share my research gleanings with people on social media but, over the years, people began to tell us that they wished there was a way of regularly catching up the research that is worth knowing about and getting a run down of my blog posts and news without having to keep remembering to visit my site, Facebook page or Twitter feed. With recent changes to the way that these social media sites works, even those who have asked to have updates from a particular page will no longer see these very often unless the page pays to promote posts.
And so we created a monthly e-mail round-up newsletter in which we summarise the best research studies that I’ve found, provide links to my recent blog posts, look at one study in a bit more depth, add a few snippets of news and round it off with a some sneak previews of what’s going on at my desk. Our hope is that this will mean you don’t miss anything, and that it’ll be a resource that you can scan through for anything of interest which you might have missed.
If you would like to have our monthly newsletter delivered to your inbox for free, you can pop your email address into the blue box which is on every page of my website or just click here and fill out your details. It’s that easy, and I’ll see you in your inbox!
A bit of herstory
This newsletter is a key element of Sara’s Birth Information Project, which was initially supported by our crowdfunding friends, who helped by donating towards the costs of the infrastructure while we donated our time. It’s still partially heart-funded and we receive no funding from companies who sell pharmaceuticals, technologies or baby products. Which means we can be honest and we’re not dependent on (and thus inhibited by) such relationships.
If you’d like to help us keep it all free, ad-free and baby product free, well we would be just delighted if you would buy some of our home-designed midwife stuff whose proceeds solely fund the newsletter, or make a donation towards the running costs, thank you 😀 We also make a donation towards the voluntary aspect of our work from every online course we run, so attending one of those (and bringing or sending your colleagues!) helps keep the free stuff going too!
