This year’s theme for Black Maternal Health Week is “Our Bodies Belong to Us: Restoring Black Autonomy and Joy!”

In celebration of Black Maternal Health week we are addressing the health and wellbeing of our care workers that serve along the reproductive health continuum. The pandemic led the nation’s healthcare workers to a breaking point where birth workers of all backgrounds are experiencing burnout, psychological distress, and anxiety. As we envision and design a future that centers safety, dignity and joy for Black birthing people, we must also work to support our health care workers who are on the frontlines, ensuring they have tools to thrive and provide optimal care.
