Birth In Color RVA is a birth, policy, and advocacy collective focused on providing culturally-centered   support to pregnant families, and the birth community.

What is our Why?

The journey to and through pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period is most often filled with joy, excitement, anxiety, and uncertainty. Birth In Color RVA was created to help families and communities manage every pregnancy-related experience! In the city of Richmond, VA, women of color are overwhelmingly excluded from   the popular narratives of pregnancy and

motherhood.   Motivated by this knowledge, the mission is best shared below:

“We are women, we   are mothers, we have stories to tell and are determined to change the narrative   of birthing women, not only in Richmond, but around the world. We realize it   starts with us.”
