Outer Banks Mothering Tent

1610099_237284833128057_4712249883684635733_nOuter Banks Birth Network and the OBX Breastfeeding Bistro provides a Mothering Tent at community events such as OBX Cares, Artrageous, and KidsFest. This quiet place to rock, rest, change, and feed your baby is an oasis for pregnant and breastfeeding  mothers.

Through generous donations in 2014,  we were able to purchase the tent.  Last year we borrowed supplies and this year we are hoping to purchase our very own portable, light weight rocking chairs and more supplies.

We are also looking to upgrade our free lending library with current books on pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding.

Many thanks for your support — and don’t forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
