OUR WORK

We provide safe spaces and peer support for black women throughout pregnancy, birth, and early motherhood.

Our aim is to empower Black women and raise awareness of how to request and expect clinically & culturally safe, compassionate, and equitable maternity care.

Our practice is informed by community research, and data analysis of the Black birth experience here in Birmingham and we carry this out through our Maternity Ambassadors for Change programme.

We work to challenge the current system of maternity care that is leaving Black women four times more likely to die than white women and re-imagine and co-create maternity support systems that are safe for Black women and their babies.
