– PROJECT OPEN TO STUDIO PARTNERS –

Organization name: The Village Midwives

Organization mission statement: Community Prenatal Care rooted in tradition - We are a group of Midwives, Naturopath's, Doulas, and elders committed to providing prenatal care that is accessible, welcoming and educational. We are helping women to have healthy, rewarding births that lead to strong resilient parenting.

Are you a:: Organization

This organization or cause is a 501(c)3 non-profit: No

What groups or causes does your organization serve?: The cause we serve is Birth Justice. Nationally there is an unspoken crisis in infant and maternal mortality and we are a group of midwives, student midwives, doulas, and elders who want to give our hearts and souls to this work. We are looking to serve under served communities in the area that are facing poor birth outcomes.

Project description: While we are not yet a 501(c)3 we are seeking that status currently. We are a grassroots effort that has two goals in mind. One is to provide under served community members with competent, compassionate, and culturally specific maternity care in response to the need for care providers that reflect the community they serve. Our mission here is birth justice. One of the biggest causes for infant death is premature delivery thus low birth weight, and in Oregon Native American and Black babies are born with low birth weight (under 2,499 grams) twice as often as white babies. 

That is where our second goal comes into play. Through our clinic we are training midwives of color to serve communities that see themselves reflected in their providers eyes. In an effort to have providers who will be culturally aware, humble and sensitive to the challenges that face our communities of color here in Oregon we believe we will be able to provide the type of care necessary to see better birth outcomes for our families.
