Professional Membership is designed for midwives whose clients wish to birth at home, to give you a selection of benefits and services. And of course your gift provides much-needed funds for Home Birth Canterbury’s work to support, protect and promote homebirth as a safe option for women in Canterbury.
Midwife members will be able to:
- order Home Birth Hampers for your home birth clients that are filled with wonderful goodies and relevant information, including:
- Biodegradable ipu whenua, complete with biodegradable ‘plastic’ bag and instructions
- Postpartum herbal bath tea from Wildflower Lane
- Baby book from Christchurch City Libraries as well as a ‘tip sheet’ for reading to babies from Little Bird Readers
As well as a selection of the following:
- Healing Balm from KoruKai
- Baby Balm from Tui Balms
- Baby toy from Babies CanPlay & The Playcentre Shop
- Homebirth bumper sticker
- Samples from Eco Store, Weleda and Artemis
- register for promotion through the Home Birth Midwives list on the Home Birth Canterbury website.
- hire birth pools at a reduced member price for use by your clients.
- receive advanced notice of antenatal classes, evening talks and events.
You will also be registered automatically to receive our new e-newsletter, which can be forwarded on to your clients. In addition, our website provides a complete range of information and services, covering topics from conception through to parenthood, which midwives are welcome to access and offer to their clients.
The cost of the new Professional Membership is just $50 per year, per midwife.
