Adverse birth outcomes - maternal mortality and morbidity rates and pregnancy-related health inequalities - are disproportionately experienced among Black Birthing Persons and Babies in California.
Highlighting the systematic and root causes of this crisis, a stronger community-based infrastructure under the leadership of Black maternal health experts, and prioritizing unbiased, culturally congruent person centered care on public health agendas are key in addressing racial disparities.

The BLACK Doula Network (BDN) is a social enterprise designed to address the doula provider deficit, build the missing backbone infrastructure needed to support and sustain doulas, and provide birthing persons with access to healthcare services demonstrated to decrease health disparities.
