This is an exciting time in the Birthing Better Babies World
This year in April I am going to Baseco with Australian midwives from Impact Erina Church, this presents the BBB team with a greater and wider opportunity to touch and bless the local community with reaching skills much wider than my own. Very exciting but at the same time challenging.
It has been interesting though, throughout the past two years I have found my heart leaning heavily toward the word PREVENTION….
Prevention rather than cure! Birthing Better Babies is a cure, albeit a worthwhile one, it is a cure to an essential problem which can be whittled down to a few basic facts which are prevalent in Baseco …
- Unplanned pregnancies for women
- Multiple pregnancies and fear of contraception
- Teens getting pregnant
- Lack of education for women in general
- General body ignorance
So with more man/woman power we can now tackle at least some of this problem. Every ounce of time we spend educating the next generation will eventually have an impact on the babies they create.This will be our focus.
Even the interpreters we use are young impressionable girls who will hear the message of health, awareness, education advantages and sexual health over and over again! They will speak it and eventually they will become it! They in turn will teach their children a better way and the level will slowly begin to rise, the tide will begin to turn!
So as we travel to Baseco this year we are armed with tools that will open doors of communication for this kind of communication. I have found most of my most impacting times have been one on one with women, door to door sitting in women’s houses and speaking as sisters Days for Girls Kits are a perfect tool to open these conversations as well as bless them with a great resource.
Every girl in the world deserves education, safety, and dignity. We help girls gain access to quality sustainable feminine hygiene and awareness, by direct distribution of sustainable feminine hygiene kits, by partnering with nonprofits, groups and organizations, by raising awareness, and by helping communities around the world start their own programs.
These kits will allow us to speak to women and girls and share on principles of
- Body awareness and correct terms for body parts
- Hygiene and germs
- Body respect
- Schooling and advantages of
- Sex Education
We will also take part in a General Body Awareness Day with the Youth of the areas and churches, focusing on
- Finding out what they actually know
- Body parts and correct names
- How are babies conceived
- How can we prevent pregnancy
With these tools we can begin to build a fence of protection around the top of the cliff rather than an ambulance waiting at the bottom.
So pray as we prepare to go. I am sure we will all be challenged and stretched. But above all pray for the women and the girls we speak to that we will make a difference that they will be open to hear!
Thanks and Blessings
