Would you like to sign up for Sara Wickham’s free, monthly newsletter, which contains birth-related research and thinking?
I have been sharing and writing about birth-related information for twenty five years.
I’ve written hundreds of articles and blog posts which are available on this web site – feel free to surf!
I’ve also got accounts on social media where I will share things. That’s something we’re doing less of these days, for loads of reasons. You can probably imagine many of them.
But the best tool we have through which to share what I come across in my reading and research is our monthly e-mail round-up newsletter, the Birth Information Update.
What’s in the Birth Information Update?
I summarise and link to the best research studies that I’ve found each month.
I look at one study in a bit more depth, see what’s new from the Cochrane Collaboration and add a few snippets of news.
We also provide links to my recent blog posts and I add a bit of chat about what’s going on in my world, which in 2020 means what’s happening at my desk.
It’s a way of helping you keep up-to-date which complements our fabulous annual update online course, Gathering in the Knowledge. It’s also a resource that you can save and scan through for anything of interest, even months later.
If you would like to have our monthly newsletter delivered to your inbox for free, 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 the 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. (We still donate our time; the funding is used just for the tech and infrastructure.)
The project is still partially heart-funded and we receive no funding from companies who sell pharmaceuticals, technologies or baby products.
Which means we can be honest.
We’re not dependent on (and thus inhibited by) such relationships.
We don’t accept advertising. If I ever mention a product, book or resource (and we generally don’t mention products, but every rule is there to be broken once in a blue moon) it’s because I genuinely love it. I never accept money or free stuff in exchange for promotion.
If you use my work to support your own work or decision making and you’d like to help us to keep the free, ad-free and baby product free information available, well we would be just delighted if you would buy something from our Etsy shop of hand-made goodies, 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!
But whether or not you’re in the mood to re-home a vagina, adopt a friendly bacteria or buy birthkit purses for the birthy people on your gift list, come and join our growing list of people who want to be kept in the loop with up-to-date birth-related research and thinking from a woman-centred perspective.
We look forward to helping you stay up-to-date.
