Join us as the Jackson Safer Childbirth Cities Experience’s Tara Shaw discusses cultivating a space to center, respect, and listen to the voices of birthworkers, those most impacted, and those who champion the care of families in need. The Jackson Safer Childbirth Cities Experience is community-based and focuses on providing the services of community-based doulas to African American women of childbearing age, specifically those between the ages of 18 and 44. In hosting a one-day conference, the project team aimed to align on best ways to implement holistic care/birthworkers in health care spaces for families across the state as well as collaborate on ways to strengthen resources for birthworkers to build collective care for Black families that is community-driven.
