MANA, gender inclusivity, and birthforeverybody.org

Last week an open letter to MANA (Midwives Alliance of North America) started circulating on Facebook, a number of beloved Midwives signed this letter – trust and hearts broke. The letter was in response to MANA changing their core competencies to be gender inclusive.

This weekend an inspiring group of birth workers, reproductive justice activists, WOC, Trans* and Gender Non-Conforming Midwives organized over the internet to respond. Prison Birth Project was honored to be a small part of the conversation and a big part of the listening to what Trans/GNC folks need in the birth community. Together with tons of hard work by many — www.birthforeverybody.org was launched!

Please read and sign our response to the open letter.
