I threw a baby shower for my good friend last weekend. I went with a train theme for the invites and decor.
For one activities at the shower, we assembled safe birthing kits for women in Haiti. I was so excited about this activity! As we were there celebrating Juli, and showering her with gifts, it was cool to recognize that not all pregnant women aren't quite as blessed. One in 10,000 women in Haiti have access to a doctor. One in 8 children in Haiti die before the age of ten. So, an organization called Konbit Sante is collecting these disposable safe birthing kits in an effort to provide more sanitary births for them.
Later this week I will blog about the second activity of the shower!
