Women's Lobby of Colorado is so proud to have so many amazing organizations as members. One of them Elephant Circle. "Inspired by elephants who give birth within a circle of support, they envision a world where all people have a circle of support for the entire perinatal period." They provide expertise and support with regard to the HOW and WHAT of birth justice. Learn more about what that means here.
They provided us some facts on what they wish we all knew about perinatal lives.
We also asked Elephant Circle to highlight one of their amazing projects. Here is one of many:
Birthworker of Color Fund
Elephant Circle has funded 5-20 Birthworkers of Color annually since we opened our doors in 2009. Our Birthworker of Color Support Fund is a central value for Elephant Circle. It is consistent with our commitment to capacity-building, providing financial support to people doing culturally relevant, community-based work. This is important in our efforts to support a healthy birth ecology in BIPOC communities. Flexibility is critical to the Fund’s success; we find that responsivity to the wide variety of needs articulated by the applicants themselves increases the value of our investment. Many Fund recipients have gone on to become national leaders in the fields of midwifery, lactation, nursing, and reproductive justice.
