The Birth Revolution

Beyond a Doula Training:

We acknowledge that the birth revolution is already here, and has been here. We need a birth worker training that will rise up and join this revolution.

BIPOC healers and birth workers have been carrying this movement since it was colonized by western medicine. We recognize that for BIPOC, this work is not something that was ever meant to be monetized and part of a capitalist structure, rather it was and is something that is done to support and take care of community. With this in mind, it is our vision and commitment to create space to learn and unite as birth workers to examine these intersections, work together to decolonize and dismantle white supremacy within this work, and bring our respective communities culturally appropriate care and support. We commit to this endeavor while acknowledging we are living and working on stolen, Indigenous Dakota land.

In order to continue to move this work forward with the goals of shattering white supremacy culture and reducing Black infant and perinatal mortality, we are asking that the community invest in it's healers. With these funds we will create accessible trainings, provide free training for BIPOC, and pay our elders and educators a living wage for the knowledge they pour into us all. 

Be a part of something bigger than all of us. Join the revolution.
