For many Black families, pregnancy and childbirth can be both a joyous and frightening experience.
We know the statistics, treatment, and outcomes. How can we better prepare ourselves to birth our babies in safe and respectful environments?
This class is intended to give space to all the emotions Black expectant parents may be experiencing as well as answer questions about birthing while Black. If you are trying to conceive or weeks away from meeting your baby, this class is for you.
Our intention is to separate fact from fiction, shift societal expectations and guide families through a clear understanding of what to expect, accept, and NOT accept when it comes to hospitals, birth centers, doctors, doulas, birth classes, body workers (and more)!
This class will be facilitated by Black birth worker and Birth Smarter educator, Elizabeth Perez.
