Why a Birth Justice Fair????
Did you know:
In Sierra Leone, Africa, 1 out of every 8 mother dies in childbirth.
In Oakland, Ca an African American Child is 1 1/2 times more likely to be born pre mature or with a low birth weight than a white baby?
In the United States a Black woman is 5x more likely to die in childbirth than her white conterpart – no matter her income or education?
That the United States is number 40 on the list of countries which lose the most mother and babies in childbirth!
The Bay Area Birth Justice Fair will address these questions and propose answers!
We will also hold a ceremony for remembrance, love and healing for families who have suffered the loss of a child before its first birthday…
