Welcome to the Downloads Page. Here is where you’ll find pamphlets, letters, or any material you are welcome to download and make use of yourself. If you have an idea for something that EP should be creating, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
US MATERNITY LEAVE LETTER
You can read about the abysmal state of maternity leave in the United States here. Because of this lack of paid leave, I have created a letter – full with references – to request longer and paid maternity leave for our US mothers. If you are interested, please download the doc version here, fill in the blanks with the relevant information and mail it off.
If you are unaware of your representative’s contact information, here is a list courtesy of Contacting the Congress.
SAFE CO-SLEEPING PAMPHLET
This pamphlet provides information on bedsharing – historical information, how to do it safely, risk factors, etc. – and can be downloaded and printed for free. Currently it is two pages, and you are expected to print double-sided. However, we know that each printer is different and so if you discover this version does not print well for you, just let us know and we can work to create a new version for different printers. A huge thanks to the many people who offered input and suggestions, images, and helped with layout to get this done. It’s been a long time coming, but it’s finally here!
SIMPLE WAYS TO CALM A CRYING BABY
I have been working with a group of individual academics, journalists, bloggers, etc. to promote safe and gentle infant sleep. This piece we wrote, which you can read on EP here, was turned into a download for those interested. If you are a midwife or doula and have clients experiencing distress over their baby’s crying, this may be perfect for them.
To print any of the above documents (for yourself or en masse) in high quality (or to create your own wall decals, window lettering, or custom calendars) you can visit Signazon, an EP sponsor.
