Our Mission

Midwifery care is holistic, healing, and humanistic. It has a rich herstory and legacy in communities of color. 

Our vision is to make this care accessible to all peoples- especially Black, Brown, youth, immigrant, indigenous, LGBTQ+, low- income and other marginalized communities. 

Our mission is to expand Birth Justice by using story telling, popular education, and community organizing to improve access to midwifery and doula care.
