Accomplished singer-songwriter Nickita is set to release an intense upcoming charity single ‘Breathe Again’ on Mother’s Day, in support of independent midwives and mums throughout all stages of pregnancy. All sales from the single will go towards an organisation founded by Nickita herself, When Push Comes to Shove, which spreads awareness of the different choices parents can make regarding childbirth.
Nickita started this foundation after going through the traumatic experience of multiple miscarriages whilst trying for her second child. This experience made her realise that midwifery has become too medicalised and doesn’t offer a complete range of support to women during pregnancy and childbirth, which is something she believes can be offered by independent midwifes and doulas.
This lead her to set up her organisation, When Push Comes to Shove, which she is now fundraising for with an aim to cover the costs of independent midwife’s insurance, and spread awareness of the support and choices that people can choose both pre-childbirth and post-childbirth. As well as setting up the foundation, Nickita also underwent training herself to become a Doula, and has since offered her support to legions of women throughout pregnancy and childbirth.
But she’s not stopping there – Nickita also has plans to continue her philanthropy by creating and releasing a documentary film to support her cause, with filming scheduled to take place in April 2021.
The Breathe Again music video speaks volumes, and accompanies the powerful lyrics of the song perfectly – which is something to be expected from a songwriter as experienced as Nickita. Her words have been used by Sony Music artists across the globe, as well as artists under the same management as stars Robbie Williams and SIA, proving just how unrivaled her songwriting talent is. Her vocal ability is also proven remarkable on the upcoming single, which you can pre-order NOW here!
