Reclaiming Birth: The Movement for Safe, Reverent, and Equitable Maternity Care in America


Bioneers Pulse – updates from the Bioneers Community


The overturning of Roe v. Wade and the subsequent rise of state laws that severely restrict or outright ban abortion represent a dramatic slide backward in reproductive rights and the progress gained through decades of advocacy and organizing. Amid the anger and fear created by this new reality, there is also a vibrant movement fighting to ensure equality in reproductive and maternal healthcare and advance legislation to codify abortion rights. 

In this newsletter we're shining a spotlight on the ongoing struggles and victories that are shaping the future of reproductive health and the evolving conversations surrounding maternal care and reproductive justice.

Read on to explore movements for safe and equitable maternity care in the U.S., abortion access in Indigenous communities, Black reproductive justice, and one candidate’s effort to reframe the political debate on abortion.

Leseliey Welch and Indra Lusero are parents and birth justice advocates who are helping lead a movement to create community birth centers across the nation. To help address the maternal and infant mortality crisis, they’re realizing a vision in which  midwives become the leaders in reclaiming the normal physiologic process of birth. In this article, learn why they think these birth centers provide racially and culturally-relevant care founded in safety, love and trust.

Black Reproductive Justice: Black Birthing Spaces and Support Could Be the Key to Maternal Health

“It’s very beneficial when you have a doctor that knows a lot about your race; she knows the circumstances and things that can go on just within the culture of your body, things that could happen.” - Shaquyla Baker

In the United States, pregnancy and birth among people of color suffer from far worse outcomes than in the rest of the population. Black people in particular find themselves consistently at the mercy of a system of care dominated by white, male medical practitioners that is insensitive to their needs and that results in far too many life-threatening failures. This article is part of Dreaming Out Loud, a media series written as part of the Bioneers Young Leaders Fellowship Program.
