Nurture Kit Initiatives

The Nurture Kit Initiative provides valuable postpartum resources and supplies to low-income expectant birthers and their families. The kits come stocked with items like a breast pump, diaper bag, feeding and diapering supplies, and more. 

  • Nearly one in two (47%) of U.S. families have trouble affording enough diapers to keep their children clean, dry, and healthy. 
  • In the U.S., the price of baby food and formula jumped to an all-time high in April 2023 and is up 8.8% from 2022. 
  • In 2021, raising a child from birth to age 18 had an average annual cost of $21,681— up almost 20% from 2016. 

Pregnant but not equal; supporting Nurture Kits helps to provide these essential childcare items to families in need.
