The Active Birth Unit (ABU) is now a Cape Town option for natural childbirth. This is a managed, safe and comfortable environment for active labouring. If you are not aware of active or natural childbirth please do consult a midwife.
Pregnancy is a unique and exciting time. It can also be a time to nurture yourself and the new life growing within you. Conscious Birth is a special niche offering that has grown out of the need for women to create space in their busy lives to connect with their self (who is becoming a mother), with their babies growing inside them, and with other pregnant women.
Milk Matters is a community-based breastmilk bank in the Western Cape devoted to saving the lives and improving the health of premature babies who do not have access to their own mother’s milk. These vulnerable babies thrive on the irreplaceable nutrients, growth factors and antibodies in human milk. Most importantly they are not exposed to the de-habilitating and potentially fatal risk of necrotising enterocolitis, associated with formula feeding and prematurity.
As a registered non-profit and public benefit organisation, we rely on donations to fund the equipment, marketing, collection, testing, and administrative costs associated with breastmilk banking.
By donating some of some of your precious breastmilk you too can save a young and fragile life.
