Change the world through your role as a birth worker

Here at The Melanated Birth, we offer an amazing and growing membership program. We hope that it helps to link up potential clients of color to birth photographers, doulas and midwives in their area who identify as they do or are known allies. 

There are two distinctions of the membership options - Birth Workers of Color (POC) and Ally Birth Workers.
This distinction is in no way meant to segregate, but rather to highlight POC in the birth industry, because some clients would like and feel more comfortable with someone who looks like them. 

What's an ally? 
An ally at The Melanated Birth is a birth worker who doesn't identify as a POC but has and/or would love to work or continue working with and showcasing WOC during birth to bring light to the options available to them and encourage an inclusive attitude. An ally recognizes the lack of cultural diversity in birth photography and amongst birth workers and wants to change that.
