I consider Birthing Project USA a great nonprofit organization because it is and has been addressing the critical social justice issue of the alarming infant mortality for women of color in the USA and across the globe. I appreciate the grassroots and community focused foundation of BPUSA as well as te unique social support they provide to mothers and their babies and communities.
I had the pleasure of meeting some of the most wonderful and dynamic group of empowering individuals called the Birthing Project USA this month in Ann Arbor MI. The members of The Birthing Project USA are insightful and driven to make a positive change in Women's health and birthing experience all over the world.
