African Birth Collective
To meet the critical need for safe childbirth practices across Africa
African Birth Collective is a 501(c)(3) nonproﬁt organization based in Oregon. Our mission is to provide women with opportunities for safe labor and delivery. Our goal is to increase medical education for Senegalese matrones (equivalent to our midwives) and to expand the cross-cultural communication of the birthing process. We are a board of physicians, midwives, business women, and medical anthropologists. Our current project is to print a French translation of A Handbook for Midwives for distribution in west Africa, to spread knowledge and safety.
