"Battling Over Birth: Black Women

and the Maternal Health Care Crisis reveals hard truths—

powerful findings on the role of racism, coercion,

inadequate prenatal care, the pressures undermining

breastfeeding, and the lack of access to alternatives to a

broken maternal healthcare system as the key threads of

Black women’s birth experiences."

--Kimberly Seals Allers, MS, is an award-winning journalist, author, and an

internationally recognized speaker, consultant, and advocate for maternal

and infant health.

Who we are

 

Black Women Birthing Justice is a collective of African-American, African, Caribbean and multiracial women who are committed to transforming birthing experiences for Black women and transfolks. Our vision is that every pregnant person should have an empowering birthing experience, free of unnecessary medical interventions and forced separation from their child. Our goals are to educate, to document birth stories and to raise awareness about birthing alternatives. We aim to challenge medical violence, rebuild confidence in our ability to give birth, and decrease disproportionate maternal and infant mortality.
