In the process of becoming a mother we walk through a portal of transition; we leave the familiar and step in to the unknown. In many ways the contraction and expansion that happens during labor begins on an emotional level when the mother prepares and becomes pregnant. Each stage bringing on a new emotional and physical sensation and path to navigate. There are both breaking points and strengthening points, we fall apart and build ourselves back stronger and wiser than before. We are not meant to journey on this path alone. Ideally, we would surround ourselves with mothers, aunts, grandmothers, and women of the community who offer support, comfort, advice and understanding of our ups and down as we navigate motherhood.
Join us on November 29th at 5pm! Meet with Board Members, the Executive Director, and our amazing volunteers to learn more about what the WOMB Initiative does, who we serve and how you can help us achieve our goals. Together, we have the power to help empower and enrich the lives of all women through information, resources and community during the journey into and through every stage of motherhood!

Ways to Give
Help us secure our space for one year!
Giving Tuesday is a national day of giving and the WOMB Initiative needs your support to secure our new location in Littleton NH for the next year. We are looking forward to providing more classes and gatherings to foster community and support women throughout their journey through motherhood. We at the WOMB Initiative believe that pregnancy, labor, birth and the postpartum are parts of a sacred journey and should be honored and respected.
Sponsor a class or gathering!
You can help us grow by sponsoring a class or gathering by giving $100 - 300, which will allow us to continue to offer these pinnacle services to rural communities throughout Northern Grafton and Coos Counties, as well as the Northeast Kingdom of VT. There was overwhelming support for continuing programming of this nature, through preliminary findings of a survey we recently sent to previous participants, volunteers, and donors.
Support our future plans!
In 2023, we plan to expand our classes and gatherings to include more lactation preparation, postpartum classes, pregnancy loss circles, CPR classes, and much more. We are also going to expand our reach by providing classes in other locations throughout the North Country of NH and the Northeast Kingdom of VT. We will also be finishing the development of our holisitc individualized support model and plan launch our pilot programs "The Motherhood Guide" and "The Volunteer Doula Program" by the end of 2023. This requires a dedicated leadership team to manage the activities necessary to see this to fruition, your donation could help compensate this team for their time and talent!
