Bras2Moms is a local program that provides free nursing bras to moms who cannot afford them. Bras2Moms exists so that no mom becomes discouraged with or stops breastfeeding because she cannot afford a nursing bra.

Bras2Moms can only help mommas out if we receive donated items! Donate a gently used nursing bra or tank before March 30th and be entered to win great prizes from Lil' Snippers and Coffee Revolution! Attach your name, email and phone number to each donation. Receive one entry for each item donated! Donations are also welcome any time after March 30th. 

Donations can be dropped off at Santé Mama, Denim & Frills, Pipsqueak Resale Boutique, Cotton Babies, Milagros, Kidz Cloz, Legacy Baby Boutique, and Kalama Kids Resale. Just let them know the donation is for Bras2Moms.

Receive a Bra: 

Any mom who has difficulty affording a nursing bra is eligible to receive up to two nursing bras from Bras2Moms. Fittings are held the first and third Monday of each month at Santé Mama, 113 NE 92nd Avenue, Vancouver, WA 98684. No appointment necessary and no documentation is needed.

Pregnant? Wish you could afford a doula?

November 24, 2008

Hello mamas and mamas-to-be,

I'm a birth doula working toward my DONA certification.   I'm looking for one client due mid/late-Febuary to mid-March to help me complete my certification.  I am offering my services for free since I am still a "student-doula."  My services include 2-3 prenatal visits; on-call 24 hours a day for 2 weeks on both sides of the due date; and 2 postpartum visits. 

As a doula, my goal is to help women and their families feel informed, confident and empowered during the birth of their child.  Through emotional support I strive to give mothers the confidence to birth their babies the way that is best for them, regardless of the path they take. 

I have a special interest in working with non-native English speakers and all foreign-born populations.  Having given birth to my son whilst living in Japan, I am especially empathetic towards women who are going through this same experience.  I hope to provide them a safe-haven for having a birth experience that is within their cultural expectations.  But I am absolutely open to all potential clients, regardless of background. 

I completed my doula training course and a six-month internship with Mothertree Birth Services here in Portland. 

Sincerely,

Liberty Wilson (615-406-6273)

Freepeats Opens in Portland: Free Baby Stuff!

July 22, 2008

Angie Wynne, founder of the popular frugal parenting website, Baby Cheapskate, recently announced the Portland arrival of Freepeats.org, an online forum which allows parents to pick up gently-used baby, kid, and maternity items for free from nearby parents who have finished with them.

"Preparing for a baby's arrival is expensive," says Wynne, "and so is raising one. Common estimates put the cost at $10,000 in the first year alone. And this is at a time when many families are trying to get by on one parent's income. At the same time, many of the expensive baby items parents spend their money on get used only for a very short time. There's still plenty of life left in them. If parents can find good-condition second-hand clothing, toys, and gear, they'll shave hundreds of dollars or more off that $10,000 total. Besides that, we'll keep usable items out of the landfills."

Freepeats opened in the Portland area on July 16. Freepeats groups are also up and running in
24 other major U.S. cities. Wynne plans to open a dozen more Freepeats forums in metro areas throughout the U.S. during 2008. "I want parents all across the country to have access to the savings that Freepeats offers," Wynne says. "We're opening the forums just as fast as we can."

Portland-area residents who join Freepeats before August 1 will receive a free lifetime membership. After that, there's be a $4.95 one-time membership fee. Meanwhile, it is Wynne's hope that residents will get hundreds of dollars' worth of gently-used baby items for the price of the cost of the gas it takes to go pick them up locally.

Freepeats has now registered more than 5000 members. Offerings have included bouncers, swings, cribs, infant formula, baby and toddler clothing, zoo tickets, diapers, strollers, high chairs, baby gyms, parenting books, toys, and more. The site has been featured at Discovery.com's Planet Green website, Apartment Therapy.com, Nickelodeon's Parents Connect website, Green Deals Daily, and more.

We have too much breast milk

May 15, 2008

We have been throwing breast milk away for months now as we have way too much.  We spoke with our pediatrician today who recommended we let urbanMamas know!  I can supply my health records.  My baby is now 6 months.  Let me know if you have a need, we'd be happy to help out a mama who can't supply her babe with breast milk.  Please email senna_won@yahoo.com

Baskin-Robbins 31 Cent Scoop Night

April 23, 2008

Baskin-Robbins is hosting its 2nd annual 31 Cent Scoop Night on April 30 from 5 - 10 p.m. During the event, customers can visit any of Baskin-Robbins 2,700 stores nationwide for a scoop of ice cream for 31 cents. 

Baskin-Robbins is partnering with the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and donating $100,000 to the organization. During the event, many local fire departments will be on location at Baskin-Robbins stores to discuss fire safety and even getting behind the counter to scoop ice cream.   

We’re really excited about this event and the cause and we’d love for you to be involved.

Best,
Danielle
