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.
SBJN organizes Black midwives and student midwives to establish a representative voice at the national level that clearly identifies and supports the various needs and interests of Black birthing people.
SBJN offers educational training in the areas of conception, reproductive & maternity care, family planning, abortion & miscarriage services, maternal health, fitness, nutrition, self-care, breast feeding, and birth justice.
SBJN offers a 1-year doula certification training that focuses on supportive services, maternal health/disparities, and advocacy skills to support a healthy pregnancy, termination, as well as multiple birth options.
