Through a grant from Merck for Mothers, we are forging paths to great healing with medical and research partners by making Brooklyn a Safer Childbirth City through gender equity, racial equity, medical trauma training and mobile on the spot doula services and perinatal support to immigrant, low-income and other marginalized women and girls.


 

Our Reports on Perinatal Health

Our Obstetric Justice Survey
 

Our Policy Platform

 

Our community change work includes doulas, midwives, and birth-workers as well as sexual assault advocates to spark change for health equity in Brooklyn, impacting over 5,000 survivors annually at 50 different locations boroughwide through our Mobile Health Unit: Sistas Van. Annually, we train 800 clinicians and medical personnel. To create the link between Trauma healing and maternal health, we purchased 300 acres of land upstate New York to build a Reconciliation Center, and offer Brooklyn women green space to heal and give birth safely.

We operate as a lifeline for mothers and babies,
bringing midwives, doulas and reproductive health
to their doorsteps.

For over ten years, BWB has been a movement to place Black women’s lives squarely within the broader political as well as civil and human rights concerns of African American communities in the U.S., where gender concerns had been relegated even further outside the margins.
