Charity during pregnancy

* This article is an excerpt from the above Sefer


During the pregnancy, the woman is to be careful to donate some money to charity each morning.

Erev Shabbos: Likewise, money should be donated to charity prior to lighting candles on Erev Shabbos.[2] It should be donated towards the charity of Rabbi Meir Baal Haneis. These moneys should be pledged to charity with saying Beli Neder, without binding oneself with a vow. In one letter, the Rebbe mentions that she should add 18 pennies towards the amount that she normally gives to charity on Erev Shabbos.[3]
