Circle of Mamas
The Circle of Mamas childbirth preparations series aims to build with and inform teen mothers and parents of their rights during pregnancy, birth and postpartum as well as increasing access to comprehensive health information. This program provides these classes in Miami-Dade County for young pregnant people in high school. The classes include “know-your-rights” training, story sharing circles, and the sharing of quality health care information, including healthy pregnancy, birth options, midwifery care, and breastfeeding support. We also support each of these young parents to make a birth plan that includes their birth option, postpartum, and breastfeeding plans and connect them with providers and services that honor these birth plans.
This program builds movement for Birth Justice by exposing a generation of teen parents to the midwifery model of care. Educating young mothers and parents about their rights is the first step in planting a seed for them to spread the word into their communities about midwifery care and full spectrum reproductive health care options.
