Birth and Reproductive Justice is a universal human right. Families deserve respectful and dignified care that is self-determined, accessible, safe and culturally congruent. For too long Black and Brown mothers and babies, specifically, have suffered and died because of basic human rights violations in maternal care. Communal responses to injustice are historically rooted and ongoing. Elder midwives and birthworkers developed the framework for supporting families with resilience and liberation through birth.
The Village Birth International Community Program serves to lift up liberated models of care in order to improve outcomes in birth, breastfeeding, parenting and healing for our Syracuse community. VBI Doulas provide physical, emotional, spiritual care and advocacy throughout all stages of reproductive healthcare.
If you are pregnant or are considering pregnancy, please contact us for more info about how doulas can support your experience.
