This is a database of Black midwives, doulas, and lactation support consultants developed for people seeking Black birth care providers. Given how few Black birth care providers there are nationwide, this resource enables people to access culturally congruent care, which can improve healthcare outcomes for BIPOC communities.

“Our Mission is to improve pregnancy and birth experiences and to eliminate perinatal disparities by increasing the number of black birth workers, teaching families about their rights and options; and creating transparency and accountability within childbirth education and the medical obstetrical system.”
