Hull & East Yorkshire Home Birth Group Volunteer sets up a Home Birth Merchandise Shop.
Melissa who gave birth to both of her sons at home set up the Redbubble shop after noticing there was very little Home Birth Merchandise available to buy.
Melissa comments ‘When I had my first home birth, my sister had wanted to buy me a ‘born at home’ baby vest and struggled to find one she liked, in the end she got one personalised.’
‘For the past few few years we have been selling ‘born at home’ baby vests to local home birthing families to try to raise funds for Hull & East Yorkshire Home Birth Group. Sourcing vests, getting them printed and posting them out was very time consuming for little gain so I looked into setting up a redbubble store.’
‘There are now a range of designs on offer that can be purchased anywhere in the world. Profits from designs detailing all or part of the new Hull & East Yorkshire Home Birth Group logo, will go towards the day to day costs of running the group.’
‘These will will help to cover costs such as leaflet printing, website domain and refreshments at our face to face meetings’
‘There are a range of items available including; Baby Vests, Adult T-Shirts, Bags, Mugs and Stickers, prices from £0.94’
