MSVW is a woman of color led nonprofit cooperative and sisterhood of 9 full time staff and 10 contractors dedicated to disrupting capitalism, white supremacy, patriarchy and institutional abuse through shared leadership and focus on whole-woman wellness. We work as community members, birth companions and organizers to expand the capacity of cooperative, collective and community based projects through education, training and companionship. 


Our programming ranges address the full spectrum of reproductive care with an emphasis on the relevance for Black women, mental health & wellness and a network of holistic support services. 


The MSVW collective is currently composed of staff members, birth companions who assist families with prenatal and postpartum care, volunteers, interns and an active Board of Directors. We began our community work in 2009 as Mamas of Color Rising and transitioned to nonprofit status in 2016. In 2023, we transitioned to a worker led cooperative model. 


We are committed to supporting each other as a collective with shared power and autonomy within the organization. Mama Sana Vibrant Woman is more than a job; it is a project that we are passionate about, a support system, and a space to enact and build our lifestyle, politics and our vision for the world and the movements we want to see. 



Envisioning a just and loving world where all parents receive attentive, quality, loving care, Mama Sana Vibrant Woman (MSVW)’s mission is to improve pregnancy and birth outcomes for communities of color in Central Texas by providing education and support services. Established in 2012, MSVW provides culturally appropriate, quality prenatal and postnatal care to people of color through prenatal and postpartum groups, one-on-one support, childbirth preparation workshops, wellness clinics, and a birth companion (doula) program. These programs provide care to the most vulnerable in our community while also training the next generation of birth workers of color in Texas.
