Black Birth Matters is a day-long conference which will feature a series of workshops, panel discussions, open dialogue, art, and healing on issues at the intersections of birth and social justice. All are welcome; however Black birth experiences will be centered. Our conference theme this year is: “Mind over Matter: Mental Health & Mothering.” To develop holistic approaches to correct the poor maternal outcomes that plague Women of Color in the US, we must center mental health and well-being. All funds raised during this event will be used to provide doula services to low income families of color in New Orleans free of charge.

We are extremely grateful that we will have the opportunity to bring our podcast to their platform. During the conference we will be setting up a mini recording studio. Giving participants an opportunity to share (record) their birth stories. For those who may not want to share their story we will also be looking for participants to share something from their pregnancy/birth/postpartum experience that was important or transformative for them.
