"We are creating a world where every community has access to a birth center."

Community birth centers provide safe, culturally-reverent, midwifery-led maternal health care for all.-BCE

Less than 5% of birth centers in the US are led by people of color.
This leaves most Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) communities without access to safe and culturally reverent care that is a key solution for reversing the maternal health crisis.

Racial inequity in funding and investment is a barrier to Black, Indigenous, people of color (BIPOC) opening and sustaining community birth centers. BCE addresses this inequity in Missouri by funding Jamaa Birth Village's future Birth Center & Postpartum Retreat Haven.

A huge thank you to our capital campaign sponsors
