January Harshe from Birth Without Fear is joining Mothers’ Milk Bank of North Texas to celebrate motherhood and the miracle of donor human milk on September 30 in Fort Worth. The event will commemorate the super powers of mothers and raise funds for the milk bank’s charitable care program. Executive Director of MMBNT, Amy Vickers says, “Many women don’t know how strong they are until they experience pregnancy, childbirth and parenting. At the milk bank, we are surrounded by superhero mothers who help save sick babies with their extra breastmilk. It’s truly amazing to know what moms are capable of.”
Austin-based mom of 6, January Harshe developed her organization, Birth Without Fear, to give moms a voice through social media. She has gained a loyal following from hundreds of thousands of mothers (and dads) through her blog, Instagram and Facebook. Her Instagram page gained notoriety with the now infamous hashtag, #takebackpostpartum, starting a movement to praise and accept a woman’s natural body changes after childbirth. Calling the months immediately following birth, the fourth trimester, January says, “I want women to embrace every change and learn to love themselves as much as they love their babies.” She adds, “I am looking forward to meeting moms in Fort Worth in September and celebrate the life-saving work of Mothers’ Milk Bank of North Texas.”
The luncheon will support the milk bank’s charitable care program, the Milk Money Fund, as well as support the organization’s permanent endowment fund. Money raised will ensure that all infants with a medical need for donor human milk will receive it, regardless of a family’s ability to pay for processing fees.
