By empowering, educating and connecting women through storytelling, Motherbirth is able to achieve our goal of helping mothers awaken the confidence already within. Both on our show and on this website, we occasionally use affiliate links to products and services that we know and trust. These are products we have personal experience with and believe that they will benefit our community.
When you use these links, Motherbirth receives a small commission (thanks for helping us do our work!). While not all links on this site are affiliate links, you can assume that any link is an affiliate link and that we may/will receive compensation. What you pay for the product doesn’t change at all — it’s the same price! If we share something that includes a discount code we may still receive an affiliate commission without affecting the discount offered to you.
This is an easy way you can support the work that we do and ensures that we can continue to create and share amazing, inspiring content for you all. We appreciate your support of the show and your trust in our recommendations!
