BOLD uses storytelling and the arts to raise awareness and support mother-initiated dialogue and solutions to maternity care problems.  The US cesarean section rate is more than 30%–15% higher than the WHO-recommended rate for industrialized countries; and it is estimated that only 2% of US mothers receive maternity care practices that promote normal birth.  Our wives’, sisters’ and daughters’ experiences are reflected in these numbers. Click here to see the BOLD sponsor levels or the download the full sponsorship packet if you think you or your organization would like to sponsor future BOLD events.

Proceeds benefit organizations in alignment with the BOLD Mission to inspire communities to create childbirth choices that work for mothers.

Sponsor support goes towards theatre costs, printing and, most importantly, getting the word out to encourage diverse members in our community to come and experience these events. In return, sponsors received the opportunity to show their support of the St. Louis Birthing Community while raising awareness of sponsors’ products or services. More than 150 people attended the BOLD event last year and 300 are expected in 2011!
