Born into This

Proceeds from this campaign go towards funding indigenous people and people of color (including the LGBTQIA communities) to attend a DTI full spectrum doula training.  Funds raised offer partial and full scholarships to these communities, pay educators from these communities and create more opportunities for leaders in these communities. 

Why does it matter? Here's a few reasons:

1.) The United States is the only industrialized nation where the maternal and infant mortality rate has not decreased over the past 20 years.

2.) Black birthing people are four times more likely to die during childbirth or just after childbirth than white women in the United States.

3.) Chronic stress, racial bias and structural barriers to healthcare contribute to racial disparities in maternal health.

4) Our world needs more birth workers, with different backgrounds, experiences and identities, if we truly want to combat maternal mortality and give all birthing individuals the right to choose.
