Let's make Alabama better, together. 

Our Mission

Quality improvement and reproductive health equity within the state of Alabama.

 

All facets of reproductive care - from abortion to birth to postpartum, and beyond - are vital to a healthy, well-balanced community. We seek to increase access to reproductive health care, improve the quality of care, and reduce health disparities in Alabama.

We are proud to be in the process of becoming a member of the National Network of Abortion Funds (NNAF).


 
 
Current Projects
ABORTION DOULA INITIATIVE
MAMA CIRCLE HUNTSVILLE

People having abortions deserve support.
We make trained, professional abortion doulas available to pregnant people receiving care at Alabama Women's Center.

We believe that every family deserves to feel encouraged and confident as they welcome a new life into the world. Mama Circle serves as a safe space to connect with other families, to learn, and to grow.

BIRTH WORKER GROWTH SPACE
NORTH ALABAMA
BREAST PUMP PROJECT

This space is a safe place for Alabama birth workers to come in order to ask hard questions, be challenged by difficult issues, learn new things, and grow in their practice.

Our community lending library of closed system breast pumps increases access for underresourced families in north Alabama.

BLACK BIRTHERS DOULA INITIATIVE

We want to make it possible for Black families in Alabama to access doulas regardless of their financial status. We are working to provide birth and postpartum support for families at no cost, while also paying doulas a sustainable living wage.
