Days for Girls Cloth Menstrual Pads

Just wanted to share an update on our Days for Girls pads program!

Our tailors are doing a great job and are currently working on our first delivery for FAME hospital. Every postpartum Mum will get a kit to take home.

These pads are washable and can last up to 3 years.  This is a great way to save money, and for many provides a solution for their periods, where they otherwise may have gone without.

We also had a second order from the amazing doulas at Wombs of the World. They ordered 45 kits and we distributed them to the postpartum moms at two government hospital in Karatu. Then nurses helped us to provide a little education on how to use the kits, and also on child spacing and contraception.  It only took 1 day to give out all 45 kits. (That’s a lot of new babies!)
