WHO WE ARE
Chicago South Side Birth Center is a non-profit startup that will be an independent, Black midwife-led Birth Center located on the South Side of Chicago.
We will comprise a team of highly qualified professionals that include the midwives, nurses, a physician collaborator, pediatrics, nutrition, social work, along with childbirth and parenting doulas and educators.
“As a midwife, my birth work and advocacy strive to create safe healing spaces that improve outcomes for birthing people who are particularly vulnerable to racialized obstetric harm and trauma. I see the Chicago South Side Birth Center as being that space."
Jeanine, Lead Steward
Chicago South Side Birth Center hopes that you will join us through our journey as we develop. Chicago South Side Birth Center is a non-profit startup that will be an independent, Black midwife-led, not-for-profit Birth Center located on the South Side of Chicago.
FINDING A HOME
We are currently raising money to fund the purchase of our building as well as its future remodel. We aim to offer a low risk option for birth and mixed risk option for reproductive health care for people in their own neighborhood and community.
We hope to be an answer to the lack of care options currently available on the Southside as well as a solution to the disparate maternal and child health rates among Black birthing people and children on the South Side.
