Real People. Real [and natural] Birth.


A new baby is an absolute joy, but they can be expensive.

Claire’s older sister was pregnant and the baby was due in 3 weeks. Hoping for a natural birth, there was only one hospital in their city that does that with the help of a midwife. But to give birth there would mean needing to pay a $500 co-pay which was not covered by their insurance. Friends and family had been extremely generous already with various pregnancy-related costs and thankfully Claire’s Common Change group was able to step in and cover $400. A healthy baby girl was born and her middle name, Abigael means ‘gives joy’.

You can be part of this kind of giving too. Head on over to the register page and get started.
