I like to spend time trying to make the world a better place.
I do that by writing books that make a difference, and by offering information and education to midwives and birth folk.
Because I believe that strong, well-informed, empowered and happy families are at the heart of a better world.
And it’s my hope that, together, we can make things better for women, babies and families during the childbearing year.
All the education and information that I create is free from funding, adverts and/or sponsorship. I’m not affiliated with an institution, and I don’t take any money from pharmaceutical, technology, baby milk, baby product or baby blood harvesting companies.
One reason we can keep it free is that my husband and I donate a day of our time to the Birth Information Project.
The other reason is that we have a Dr Sara Wickham seasonal Etsy shop, which means that lovely people like you can buy something hand-made by Sara and help pay for the infrastructure (that is, the software and technical expertise) that supports the Birth Information Project.
Please note: our shop is seasonal, because we travel, and also because Sara needs time to make the goodies each year. But you can subscribe to my email updates, and to the shop itself, and we’ll let you know each time we open.
What’s in our Dr Sara Wickham Etsy shop?
You can buy velvet vaginas which I demonstrate in the video above. I also chat in the video about my birthkit purses, which I use to show how very little one really needs to attend a physiological birth. (Yes, I do actually use a pinard and doppler in practice; the kitchen roll tube is just a conversation starter for education sessions!)
You can meet some friendly bacteria too, and we have cute bags to carry index cards (or your pens and scissors, or anything really; we know people who also use them as coin purses and for carrying small sewing projects!)
Here are a few resources for those of you who have bought goodies and would like more information:
How it helps
All profits go straight into the Birth Information Project. So you can treat yourself or a friend AND help support free birth-related information all at the same time.
And even if you’re not in need of more birth-related goodies, please share and tell your friends about our work and help us make the world a better place for women, babies and families.
