Birthing Kit Foundation Australia provides a safe birth for mothers in developing countries.

Every second of every day, beautiful little babies are being brought into the world.

And to help give every bub a healthy and happy start to life in developing countries, the Birthing Kit Foundation Australia has come up with a brilliant initiative to help stop preventable infections during child birth.

Packaged in Australia, the Birthing Kits contain six items – a plastic sheet for mum and baby to lie on, gauze to wipe bub’s eyes, gloves for the birth attendant, soap, a sterile scalpel blade, and some string to tie off the umbilical cord.

The items are so basic, but they are essential in enabling a mother to deliver her baby in a safer, cleaner environment.

The kits are only $3 and put together by volunteers in Australia. You can donate online, organise an assembly day or become an annual member.

Purchase a Mama Maya muslin swaddle and you’re also supporting BKFA.
