Reproductive justice is "the human right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children, and parent the children we have in safe and sustainable communities"

Our Mission  & Vision

We are woman of color, a sisterhood, disrupting capitalism, white supremacy, patriarchy and institutional abuse. Our organization is built upon horizontal leadership and focuses on whole-body wellness from a reproductive justice lens. Our goal is to improve pregnancy and birth outcomes for communities of color in Central Texas by providing culturally congruent education and support using the midwifery model of care. 


From our community

Mother of baby Z

After spending time doing Google searches for Black and Hispanic midwives and doulas in the Austin area I stumbled upon the Mama Sana Vibrant Woman website and from there sent an email inquiring about their support. I decided to sign up for their free prenatal support groups led by MSVW birth companion, Ellen Gonzalez. Ellen provided a wealth of resources and support about birthing techniques, best practices for advocating for yourself during childbirth (especially with the new COVID procedures) and preparing our home environment for a new baby.

Black Reproductive Justice Activists on Black Lives Matter | NowThis

‘Really consider how you can call yourself pro-choice when your behavior may be anti-Black’ — These activists are sharing why Black Lives Matter is also a movement for reproductive justice » Subscribe to NowThis: » Sign up for our newsletter KnowThis to get the biggest stories of the day delivered straight to your inbox: In US news and current events today, Black activists campaigning for reproductive justice are speaking out on why Black Lives Matter and reproductive rights are forever intertwined. Abortion rights is one of the most contentious issues in America today, as the anti choice, supposedly pro life side continues to wage war against those who are pro choice and in favor of letting women and people who reproduce to keep their bodily autonomy. The inequalities in our healthcare system also trickle down to abortion, as womens rights and womens health care are not meted out equally. To battle for civil rights and proclaim that Black Lives Matter, these activists from SisterSong and other organization argue, you must embrace reproductive justice and fight for Planned Parenthood and other organizations that are giving Black women and women of color the rights to do what they choose with their bodies. #SisterSong #ReproductiveJustice #BlackLivesMatter #News #NowThis #NowThisNews Connect with NowThis » Like us on Facebook: » Tweet us on Twitter: » Follow us on Instagram: » Find us on Snapchat Discover: NowThis is your premier news outlet providing you with all the videos you need to stay up to date on all the latest in trending news.
