Midwifery care is
holistic, healing, and humanistic. It has a rich herstory and legacy in communities of color. Our vision is to make this care accessible to all peoples - especially Black, Brown, immigrant, indigenous, LGQBT, low-income and other marginalized communities.
Through Mobile Midwife, our mission is to expand Birth Justice by using story-telling, popular education, and community organizing to improve access to midwifery care.
