About Black Women Birthing Justic: BWBJ is a grass-roots collective out of Oakland, CA. We identify as Black women and individuals across the African Diaspora and are committed to transforming birthing experiences for Black women and birthing people. Our vision is that every pregnant person has an empowering birth and postpartum experience, free of unnecessary medical interventions and forced separation from their child, one that honors their autonomy and maintains dignity. We aim to educate and inform, to document and share Black women and individuals’ birth stories in their own words, to raise awareness, influence healthcare policy, and keep birth sacred. We challenge human rights violations, including maternal mortality and near misses, and rebuild confidence in our Black and Brown community’s ability to birth.
