The National Association of Birth Centers of Color, an organization focused on the elimination of racial disparities in birth outcomes and helmed by midwives who are already doing this work, has formed and their website is up! This organization is putting into practice a model of care that both draws what new research has shown about the profoundly harmful effects of racism for women of colors and their babies and the rich tradition of community healing practiced by midwives of colors.

From their website:

Mission:

NABCC’s mission is to increase the number of maternity clinics and birth centers owned and/or operated by practitioners of color who are committed to serving communities of color.

We support the growth and development of maternity care models that ensure access to timely and quality perinatal health-care, by providing practical, social, educational, and emotional support to improve positive outcomes.

 

Vision:

The elimination of racial disparities in birth outcomes among communities of color.
