"The word “revolutionary” suggests that the movement is not only about reform and tinkering around the edges, so to speak. We are not looking to simply reduce disproportionate mortality rates; we are seeking a fundamental transformation of the conditions under which we become pregnant and give birth so these inequalities no longer exist"
- Julia Chinyere Oparah
Birth work is social justice. We live in the richest, most powerful country in the world, yet our maternal health outcomes are the worst of developed nations (we currently rank 55th).
And the outcomes are even worse for Black and Indigenous birthing people.
We can do better, and we must do better. Please consider giving to some organizations who are doing incredible work.
