How To Earn Money using your Gender Reveal!

As a doula, I am constantly trying to find ways to make my services more accessible. As you know, having a doula is linked to better birth outcomes. In America, and especially in my home state of Georgia, we need better birth outcomes to improve the maternal mortality rate. 

However, I am hearing over and over that people cannot afford the out of pocket cost of having a doula. While I wish our services were recognized and valued by insurance companies; there’s still ALOT of work to be done with that. 

Personally, when I was pregnant with my son- we decided to skip the super elaborate maternity photos, fancy gender reveal party and went for a budget friendly baby shower. No elaborate theme, baby shower decorations or favors. My uncle provided the baby shower food, and we simply enjoyed spending time with our family and friends because we knew we needed those funds to cover a doula. I often encourage my clients to take advantage of my payment plan options, utilize HSA/FSA funds, to ask for donations to their doula services as baby shower gifts, and to prioritize doula services as a “baby registry must have.” 

 

Many people say that even after asking family and friends, they don’t get the donations they need. We are still actively educating people on the importance of doulas (and midwives too!) I find that people are more likely to ignore baby registries all together, and then expecting parents end up with the same outfits and bottle sets as baby shower gifts. 

 

I’ve found that in order to get family and friends to give the cash that people need to cover the items and things that are important to them… we have to get a little creative. 

 

Insert- Gender Reveal Game!

Gender Reveal Game allows expecting parents to raise money by having family and friends guess the baby’s gender with cash plays. This is a unique way to play on everyone’s anticipation and excitement surrounding the big reveal, and using that to your advantage!

Think about it, once people find out that you’re expecting- the next question is usually “do you know the gender yet?” For some reason, people just cannot wait to find out the gender and then .. baby names! 

 

 I’m now suggesting all of my clients that need creative gender reveal ideas to use this game. It’s virtual AND all the funds raised can go towards covering their doula services! Imagine if you raised enough to cover ½, ¾ or even fully cover your doula! 

 

The steps to creating your game are:

  1. Simply head over to the site, www.genderrevealgame.com
  2. Create your game (set your terms and conditions like the time length for the game to run & the minimum bid!)
  3. Share! 

Share with your family, friends, social media family, co-workers, heck share with the whole internet! People LOVE gender reveal parties, and games.

 

Once the game ends, a winner will be selected. The winner wins a prize (that you choose.) Then, you get all the funds from all the bids!

 

 If you want, you can still have a gender reveal cake as you announce the winner… because who doesn’t like cake?!?

 

This is my doula tip for the month. Use Gender Reveal Game to crowdfund for the things that will make your birth, the birth that you desire. You deserve it!

Raven Thomas helped me in my TTC journey by giving me knowledge on what was actually going on with my body and helping me understand my hormones. She educated me on hormone imbalance and the negative affects  that it  has on the body. Raven's  outstanding wisdom lead to me getting pregnant. She walked me through my pregnancy with healthy ways of eating,books and managing my emotions in a healthy way to promote a wonderful stress free pregnancy. During my Postpartum phase she answered all of my questions for breastfeeding, and how to still rest with multiple kids for recovery, any issue I had she made sure she gave me the emotional support as well as a game plan to overcome my issues I was having. I highly recommend her for all of your Doula needs and brestfeeding services. She has such a heart for women and wellness!!

After years of receiving defeating news of miscarriage coupled with countless negative pregnancy test, as well as medical providers doubting my chances of pregnancy with a history of pcos, my blessing was planted in my womb.  When we found out I was pregnant (and taking a test 10 times due to disbelief) it was very important for us to have support. Raven communicated with me during times of infertility, provided resources and suggestions so I just knew I wanted her to be my doula after receiving news we were officially pregnant. When Raye initially mentioned she may not be able to commit due to other obligations and I was so devastated. Inevitably, I contracted with another doula and terminated that contract as soon as I discovered Raye was accepting doula clients. During my initial consultation call with Raven I immediately recognized the switch was the best thing to do for ME.   From prenatal visit to labor and delivery, my entire birth process seemed so personalized. I appreciated that Raven frequently helped me normalize  my concerns and feelings while discouraging all negative thoughts on pregnancy.  During labor, Raye not only supported me but also my husband. She was able to take over and allowed him to rest which he is still appreciative of. Her counter pressure techniques really helped me deal with contractions as they were getting more intense. Now that I have transitioned to post partum, Raye continues to provide support and check ins. It truly takes a village & I am grateful to have had Raven as my doula, and support.

If you’re wondering whether or not you can receive quality care from a doula even if it’s just virtually the answer is yes. Raven provided vital information on what I could expect, request, decline, and more throughout my pregnancy experience. The actual doula I chose to contract here in New York where I live is everything Raven told me I should have in a doula. When had my virtual consultation with Raven, she was polite, informative, reassuring and even answered my million questions. I think a virtual consultation is key for anyone who is unsure about what doulas do and who they are—and if doulas aren’t readily available in your area having the consultation helps with your search. If you are looking for someone to help you choose the right doula service, and you’re not able to meet in person, I would highly recommend having a consultation with Raven. Simply put, she is amazing. - Mrs. Adara Sherron First time mom to a baby girl.

What can I really say about this woman right here? She is my shero, my personal nurse lol. When I was battling with infertility she was right alongside  of me helping me to fight and to not give up hope. She encourages me , prayed for me and helped me to loose weight and get healthy for my miracle that we knew was coming.  Almost two years later here I am with my miracle baby . Although it’s been rough with so many scares in the beginning , she’s still alongside of me coaching me and helping me through my fears . I love this woman !. -Jasmine

Working with Raye is a dream!!! She was extremely responsive and helpful. On one of my strands the sizing was a little off. I was able to send it back and she got me right. I absolutely love her as a person and as an entrepreneur! She is definitely on my short list for doulas as well. She’s amazing and definitely is mastering all her crafts.
