Bay Area Birth Justice Fair

Hello and thank you for your kind consideration of our event!

 

This year our Birth Justice Fair will focus on the lifelong benefits of breastfeeding, not only for infants but for their mothers and the community.

 

We would be honored to have your practice or organization sponsor a table at our event, which will take place at the date and venue above.  Hosting a table will give you the opportunity to share your organization or healing art with approx. 250 – 300 Bay Area Families.  We are doing specific outreach to families who may not have had an opportunity before to be exposed to holistic healing arts, so this is a great opportunity to reach a new, interested and eager population of potential clients.

 

Our birth justice events are fundraisers for the Oakland Better Birth Foundation which holds as its mission:

To expand the conversation around reproductive choices and to address the appalling rate of infant and maternal mortality in the City of Oakland as well as the County of Alameda in its entirety.

 

To promote and educate the public about the vital role of traditional midwifery services and securing good birth outcomes for all women and especially women of color.

 

To provide financial support and education to those wishing to avail themselves traditional midwifery and doula services as well as other traditional health practitioners historically shown to support and improve birth outcome.

 

To provide financial support and mentoring to those wishing to pursue a career as a traditional midwife, doula or childbirth educator.

 

To address the mental, emotional and spiritual concerns that arise on the  parenting/child rearing journey, by providing therapeutic services, educational workshops and skill building for children, couples, parents and families, individually or in groups, at affordable prices.
