About





ABOUT

 “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.” 

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


OUR WHY

The journey to and through pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period can be filled with joy, excitement, anxiety, and uncertainty. Birth In Color RVA was created to help families and communities navigate 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, Birth in Color RVA aims to support and educate families of color so that we can help meet their pregnancy and parenthood needs.
