Me and my husband are expecting our first child, to be born around July 6th. I am determined to bring this new being into the world in the sacred space of my home and farm, and I need your support to do so.
About us & the campaign
We are a young couple Rita and Gonçalo decided to live a natural live shared with open minded people. Two years ago we'v moved to a piece of land in central Portugal mountains where we wish to realize our dreams living along with Nature and empowering people. In this place a small community is growing and we all feel blessed with this new life inside me that wants to join us.
The aim of this campaign is to raise money to fund my midwife care and birth expenses.
In Portugal home births are not recognized by the government or supported by the public health services, As in many other countries in the world pregnant and birthing woman face difficulties in making autonomous choices about when, how and with whom to receive care and give birth to their babies.
So to make my wish of a peaceful home birth I deeply hope that u can support this campaign, helping us to raise 1500 euros to pay my midwife Mary Zwart and birth expenses.
Any donation (small or large) is very appreciated and we will be forever grateful to you for it, sending you a personal thanks message with a picture of te newborn baby.. :) so please provide you e-mail address.
From my heart to yours
My home is my sacred space where I feel empowered and strong to follow my intuition and believes to have this baby in a peaceful and joyful environment. I want to use this opportunity to grow emotionally and spiritually allong with my family.
My heart and soul calls for bringing this new life to the world in a comfort and safe space of my home, free from fears, distractions, restrictions, strangers, machines, florescent lights, multi-resistant bacteria and other diseases breeding in hospitals.
I believe in my intuition, my body's wisdom, my husband and my midwife to help me giving birth to our first baby.
If you can not help financially we understand and we'll be also forever grateful for your love prayers and for your help spreading this campaign.
THANK-YOU SO MUCH
LOVE Rita, Gonçalo & Baby
