The Fourth Trimester
The first 12 weeks after a mother gives birth -- known as the fourth trimester -- are a critical time for both mother and baby as they adjust to their new worlds.
Unfortunately, more than 40% of single mothers giving birth in NYC every year enter this time without the essentials needed to care for their newborns or themselves.. From diapers to wipes to clothing and more, federal and government programs do not cover these expenses.
Join our community of monthly donors "The Fourth Trimester" and help ensure that single mothers in need can focus on what's most important, bonding with their newborns.
Support single mothers in need every month with critical
postpartum and newborn essentials.

Why we do what we do
“Becoming a mother is the hardest job in the world even if you have everything. Imagine if you had nothing.
