I encourage you to take a look at a couple recent posts:
Let's push for better maternal health for all mothers
Become a Birth Partner with The Shanti Uganda Society and help bring midwifery-based, women-centered care to teens, women, and infants in vulnerable communities in Uganda. I love that they host prenatal education, a birth center, prevention of HIV transmission, a community garden, and even reusable menstrual pad kits for teen girls! Support this incredible organization.

Surf with us:

Sunday Surf with Authentic Parenting and Hobo MamaWe love following along with fellow Sunday Surfers. If you have your own post of reading links to share, please link up your post on Hobo Mama or on Authentic Parenting. The linky will go live every Sunday, and you can link up any day that week. If Sunday doesn't work for you but you do a links list another day, feel free to play along. You only need to add your post to one of the sites, and the linky will automatically show up on both sites.

You can get the Sunday Surf button by Jenna Designs and some code to add to your post from my Sunday Surf page.

Check out previous editions for good reading, and you can find more shared items during the week at my Tumblr blog, Hobo Mama's Shared Items.
