Audre Lourde (by way of Ancestor Elder Claudia Booker)
Childbirth Education is the foundation of your birthing journey. When you are equipped with the knowledge necessary to navigate through your care and services you are able to advocate better for yourself, your choices, your experience and your future child.
The advocacy and education of birthing persons shape their experience and promotes healthier outcomes during birthing experience. It is important for families to know their rights, understand evidence based and best practice cultural knowledge in their birthing choices and options, and ways to help advocate for themselves throughout their perinatal journey.
Our classes are informative and we provide evidence based data to support families as they navigate the changes with Covid-19 policies, rights and their birthing experience. We promote genuine, authentic consent. We uphold cultural best practices as a valid options and practice of care through generational knowledge sharing and evident cultural affirmation.
Our families are encouraged to seek support through doula provider services, which we work with our perinatal coordinator to provide resources. We look forward to you joining us in our 5 topic series learning.
We look forward to hosting monthly specials in our space and community spaces to highlight dialogue, conversations, and community change for better maternal health outcomes, and perinatal equity in RI. Join our mailing to keep up to date.
