FOLLOW OUR JOURNEY
At Kahlmi, every purchase you make contributes a portion of sales directly to the Welcome Baby Charity.
In the US, more than 3 million infants, toddlers, and preschoolers live in poverty. Our mission is to create a world where every baby and parent can thrive and have access to basic essentials and early childhood care education.
That's why we've partnered with Welcome Baby, a nonprofit dedicated to providing low-income mothers with one comprehensive package containing everything she and her newborn need in the first four weeks of life.
There is nothing more delicate and difficult than the first four weeks after delivery, when babies and mothers are navigating stressful, uncharted territory without support or resources. Newborns are highly susceptible to germs and highly sensitive to the world outside the womb. Mothers are still recovering from the physical and emotional upheaval accompanying birth and new parenthood.
Babies who lack basic essentials frequent doctors’ offices and emergency rooms more often, further tilting the balance against them, exacerbating the strain on resources, and increasing the emotional toll on new mothers.
It can be a relentless cycle that completely undermines the solid foundation needed for a child’s development and for healthy and successful parenting.
Studies have shown that mothers who cannot provide for the basic needs of their newborns struggle with postpartum depression at a higher rate, experience high levels of stress, and lack competence.
The Welcome Baby charity directly addresses many of the critical needs of both baby and mother in these vulnerable postpartum weeks, a period known as the fourth trimester.
Please join us in our mission to serve new mothers everywhere to create a more equitable future for all babies and parents.
