BIPOC for Better Birth


Mission Statement: 

BIPOC for Better Birth is a grassroots organization that addresses the unique needs of Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) who continue to face disproportionately poor pregnancy and birth outcomes while creating pathways to better reproductive experiences by raising awareness, building community, and supporting the efforts of birthworkers like doulas, midwives, lactation specialists, and herbalists who recognize the intersection of racism and medicalized childbirth. 




Donations: We are currently accepting any and all donations to go towards matching our Urbana Arts Grant! Our goal is to raise $2,000, so that we can offer arts-oriented birth events in Urbana, IL.

Donate to BIPOC for Better Birth!
