Black Birth Matters

New Orleans Healing Center
Getting there
2372 Saint Claude Avenue, New Orleans, LA

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.
