Changing Outcomes For Black Women
At Holding Her Space, we prioritise providing support for women from Black African/Caribbean backgrounds. Most of our projects extend to supporting women and families from South Asian and Disadvantaged/Marginalised groups. Our tailored support ensures the women and families from these groups receive culturally appropriate care and support throughout pregnancy and early parenthood.
Statistics show that the experience of birth for women from Black and brown backgrounds has been disproportionately worse in comparison to their white counterparts.
We know this disadvantage has little to do with ‘black’ and ‘brown’ bodies and more with necessary changes in birth culture and care provided. Our work has helped identify the lack of awareness around these communities’ cultures and their traditions in birth.. We are passionate about changing the narrative around the outcomes for our communities, one birth at a time.
