Tottie Charity Partner : Birthing Kit Foundation

"We are so proud to be able to give back to such an incredible cause. At Tottie, our ethos is about equality, and we feel so passionately about women from all corners of the globe feeling safe in the knowledge that they can experience a safe and healthy birth for both themselves, and their child." - Tottie

Did you know that just $5 provides a clean birthing kit to a woman in need around the world?

That's all it costs to provide something every woman has a right to experience; a clean, safe arrival into the world for both mother and child.

It is in this pursuit, that Tottie is so proud to partner with the Birthing Kit Foundation Australia.


Why are clean birthing kits so important?

Many of us living in Australia and around the world are lucky enough to have access to some of the most incredible medical facilities available, meaning that experiencing a safe and clean birth is something we don't have to worry about. Unfortunately, not every woman is that fortunate.


The Birthing Kit Foundation of Australia work in partnership with the Australian Community and a number of Global Organisations to pack and supply Clean Birth Kits to pregnant women living in rural communities and low-resource settings around the world. To date, 2.4 million Clean Birth Kits have been distributed to women in need. Kits are given to mothers through community outreach programs, supplied to health facilities for use by doctors, midwives and nurses or distributed to traditional birthing attendants. They are designed to support hygienic practices and environments during childbirth in under-resourced settings.

What's included in a clean birthing kit?


A clean birthing kit from the Birthing Kits Foundation Australia is packed by one of their many volunteers, and features everything you need to help ensure a safe and hygenic birth, anywhere in the world. In each pack you'll find gauze, a plastic sheet, soap, cord ties, a sterile blade, and gloves.
