Mamas In Lockdown
 is an emotional and inspiring collection of personal stories from over 70 parents who were pregnant or gave birth during lockdown.

Genevieve's Baby

Author, writer and advocate for mums, Denise Ives has started a PledgeMe campaign with the aim of reaching $20,000 by Monday 23 November 2020 to have these stories published in a beautiful book so they can be shared with their loved ones and the world.

Covid-19 has had a huge impact on the people of Aotearoa New Zealand, especially those having a baby. From giving birth without the support of a partner or chosen midwife, to having a home birth instead of a hospital birth - the changes have been unexpected and disconcerting for many. While supporting families with breastfeeding during the lockdown period, it became very clear that parents needed to talk about what had happened.

Many hours were spent listening to parents, and Denise knew how therapeutic writing their stories had been for a couple of these mums. So she put out a call for others to see if they wanted to write their story to share in a book. Denise was flooded with many incredible, heartfelt, emotional and empowering stories. The stories have been formatted in digital form and are now ready to go to print. Denise is 100% committed to honouring these incredible wāhine and their families by making this happen. Parents need to tell their stories, they deserve to have them heard.

How to order your books

23/11/2020 at 7:19 AM

Thank you everyone for your support so far. Sadly the PledgeMe campaign isn't happening for us, but that's ok. 

Mamas in Lockdown is still happening!

The stories, and the reasons for writing them, are as important today as they were a few months ago when this project started. As one mum said, "It was a hard thing to write, but it has helped me to put it into writing".

After the PledgeMe campaign finishes at 1pm today, order your copy of Mamas in Lockdown here: https://deniseives.com/make-a-purchase/

For our business sponsors and those who pledged money to help make Mamas in Lockdown happen, I would still love (and really need!) your support. Please email me: [email protected]

Thank you everyone! Enjoy your book, it is truly beautiful. It will touch your heart and make you think. 

The PledgeMe campaign ends soon - what happens if it doesn't hit target?

20/11/2020 at 6:32 AM

First of all, thank you for your Pledge! We have three days to go so please keep sharing with your family, friends and businesses who might like to sponsor us. It's not over yet!

From the first moment I had the idea to create Mamas in Lockdown, I wanted the end product and the process of writing to be something that every story contributor would be proud of. I know that writing the stories has been a cathartic, therapeutic and difficult thing to do for many of the parents. 

From the very start, I have been determined that every story will be heard - I am still 100% committed to that. 

So for all those reasons, I went ahead and ordered 500 copies of Mamas in Lockdown anyway :-)

The book exists, it is real! 

 

So what happens if the PledgeMe campaign doesn't hit target?

The way the numbers sit right now, it's looking likely that we won't hit target. If that happens, the campaign will close and none of your payments will be taken by PledgeMe - you will not be charged, I will not receive any payments. You will not receive any rewards. 

But that's not the end!

Everything that was listed in the PledgeMe campaign is still available, and I'm all set up to get your rewards and orders out to you. 

To order your copies of books and knitted breasts, go here: https://deniseives.com/make-a-purchase/

If you are a business sponsor then email me: [email protected] and I'll send you the bank details to continue with your sponsorship package. 

If you're not sure what to do, or have any questions at all, drop me an email: [email protected]

Your book is here, it is beautiful!

Review of Mamas in Lockdown

15/11/2020 at 4:39 PM

We've received an amazing review of Mamas in Lockdown from a midwife and lactation consultant in Dunedin...

Mamas in Lockdown captures a unique moment in history/herstory. Babies do not wait for anyone! The personal stories in this book portray the challenges and beautiful moments of strength and courage. For mother’s birthing in the hospital where there was sometimes a confusing regime of rules and lack of support as everyone struggled to grasp the implications of the pandemic. Other mothers recount their struggles with breastfeeding, lack of support and finding new ways to get the support they needed.

Beautifully put together, this book will draw you in!
 
Isn't that fantastic?!

Be sure to pre-order your book here on PledgeMe and share the link with your friends and family. We'd love more business sponsrs too, there's a reward for them too!
 
Thanks you so much!

A sneaky peak of the printed book!!!!

11/11/2020 at 4:43 PM

I've done a small print run of Mamas in Lockdown!

I just couldn't wait for the PledgeMe Campaign to finish to see what it looked like in real life lol 

Isn't it just beautiful? 

Please share our information with all your family, friends and business people you know - we've got a bit further to go yet. 

Thank you :-) 

Are you experiencing technical difficulties?

02/11/2020 at 8:49 PM

Hey everyone,

Thanks to those of you that have pre-ordered Mamas in Lockdown or made other pledges.

We've had a few reports of difficulties when trying to place pre-orders for books or make other pledges. Some people seem to get stuck in a loop where they enter their address but it's not recognised and they keep getting re-directed to add their address again. 

If you have problems, please let me know, and it would be great if you could also contact PledgeMe and let them know too. 

The problem has been reported to the PledgeMe techy group and they are looking into it. 

Thanks!
Denise

Get your copy of Mamas in Lockdown!

31/10/2020 at 2:38 PM

The quickest way to get your copy of Mamas in Lockdown is to pre-order it right here on PledgeMe. By pre-ordering you are helping to ensure this project actually happens, and you will be one of the first people to receive your book. 

PledgeMe orders will be filled first and sent out as soon as the campaign ends and pledges have been paid. 

However, if the PledgeMe campaign does not reach it's target, none of the pledges will be paid - including those for book pre-orders. 

So pre-ordering on PledgeMe not only gets you your book asap, it helps to make sure we meet our target, allowing me to get the books printed fast! 

So please pre-order on PledgeMe, and ask your family and friends to do the same. 

Thanks! 
Denise

Buy 2 Books!

21/10/2020 at 12:20 PM

Choosing which rewards to put up for Pledges took some time, but from feedback I've realised that a new reward is needed :-) 

So now we have new reward - Buy 2 Books. If you've already bought two books using the Buy the Book reward, don't worry, you'll still get your two books, I've just hopefully made it easier to make that choice now! 

Please keep sharing the link and telling people about this wonderful project. I know the parents who wrote the stories are so excited to see their words and photos in print :-) 

Thank you
Denise

 

 

We're a quarter of the way there!

20/10/2020 at 12:49 PM

WOW! Thank you to everyone who has pledged so far, in one week we're already quarter of the way there!

The stories in Mamas in Lockdown are so powerful. Written by the parents in their own words, they are emotional, raw, happy... and sometimes sad. 

"These narratives locate us in a time and place where there is still much to learn. The book gives life, space, vibrancy, feeling and validity to the experiences of women and their whānau and has been a therapeutic tool of consolidating the birthing experience."

If you have already pre-ordered your book, thank you. If you don't want to buy a book, please support our campaign by sharing it with everyone you know... these stories deserve to be heard

 

Why pre-order on PledgeMe?

19/10/2020 at 1:31 PM

Maybe the first question is why did we decide to use PledgeMe? 

PledgeMe is an online fundraising and pledging website. Campaigns on PledgeMe have the ability to reach more people than we can manage through social media posts and word of mouth alone.
PledgeMe also gives people the opportunity to contribute to the production of Mamas in Lockdown, even if they don’t want to buy the actual book.
So why pre-order your book on PledgeMe?

By pre-ordering your book, it takes us closer to the target of our PledgeMe campaign, and helps to fund the cost of printing. 

Your payment is secure and safe with PledgeMe, you only pay PledgeMe if the campaign reaches its target amount - $20k. If we don’t reach the campaign target, your payment will not be taken by PledgeMe. You will not lose your money.
If our campaign doesn’t reach target, none of the Pledges are paid out. This means that by pre-ordering your book on PledgeMe, it not only means we cover the costs to print our beautiful book, we also get the big pledges from businesses that are being made too - $500 each. These pledges really help to make Mamas in Lockdown a reality.
So if you want your very own copy of Mamas in Lockdown, don’t wait! Pre-order it on PledgeMe now! Thanks 🙂
 
 
 
 

Ready to go to print!

14/10/2020 at 8:23 PM

The proof is back from Nettl in Dunedin, and we're ready to go to print as soon as we have enough Pledges! 

Keep sharing our PledgeMe page with all your family and friends... we need more Pledges to make this happen :-) 

 

Don't forget to include postage

09/10/2020 at 1:25 PM

Hello lovely Pledgers and Followers! 

Thank you for supporting this project. I am determined that every mama who sent me her story will be heard, so your Pledge really is going to help make this happen.

If your Reward needs to be delivered, please make sure you have entered your full address and included postage costs - postage details are included with each Reward description. 

I'll be in touch again at the end of the Campaign :-)

Thanks
Denise

The support you and your volunteers give to women is commendable and very under valued. I truly hope that by publishing this book it will bring the importance of motherhood to the fore front of many minds reminding each of us this is where life first starts and how we need to support and enable mothers to thrive as nurtures and carers of our precious tamariki "

      "Such a wonderful idea to give women a voice as they journeyed through a extremely challenging time in history. The support you and your volunteers give to women is commendable and very under valued. I truly hope that by publishing this book it will bring the importance of motherhood to the fore front of many minds reminding each of us this is where life first starts and how we need to support and enable mothers to thrive as nurtures and carers of our precious tamariki "
