CREATING COMMUNITY FOR PEOPLE OF COLOR TO SHARE AND LEARN FROM BIRTH STORIES OF ALL TYPES.
Preparation for pregnancy, birth and parenthood can take many forms. Here at Birth Stories in Color, we emphasize the role of storytelling as a way to equip future parents. Listening to real birth stories is one way to discover the expected and unexpected parts of the journey.
We realize that there are birth stories not being heard. Birth Stories in Color is also a space for people of color to share their birthing experiences. A space that specifically celebrates, mourns with and supports people of color and their transformation through birth.
We hope that all who share and listen find it to be a community near and far, and an invaluable resource for navigating their own journey. Listen to the podcast via iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, Soundcloud or here on our website!
What Our Community Have To Say
I applaud the work that Laurel and Danielle are doing because we, women of color, must tell our own stories about birthing. There is so much vulnerability in our stories but also liberation for the women who are walking beside us and who will come after us. I get so excited by the website updates with the beautiful morsels of truth that Laurel and Danielle capture for our listening pleasure!
We continue to love what you are doing and believe it will make a difference in celebrating birth and working towards closing the gap of health disparities.
