The Indigenous Birth Project

“If you have come here to help me you are wasting your time, but if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together” - Lila Watson

The Indigenous Birth Project

Indigenous birth keepers have faced centuries of erasure, suppression, and delegitimization. Colonization in Canada is currently causing Indigenous mothers to face high rates of birth trauma, complications, racism, and discrimination.

 

Research into Indigenous midwifery shows all of these problems can be mitigated when women have access to culturally safe information and services. *

 

The Indigenous Birth project works in reciprocity with Indigenous midwives, knowledge keepers, elders, doulas, mothers, and partner organizations to provide virtual access to cultural information and resources.
