Reproductive Justice and Doulas
Updated: Jan 12
Reproductive Justice, coined by the SisterSong collective in 1994, plays a heavy role in the work of birthworkers and doulas. RJ encompasses the frameworks in which birthworkers embody in their day to day.
Within each framework are the countless doulas, birthworkers, and birth keepers who are disrupting systems and are advocating for equity so that folks may move through their reproductive transitions with dignity and respect.
In this blog post, we'll talk about what reproductive justice is and the four main pillars in the framework. As well, we'll dive into the different types of doulas there are for each pillar within RJ. At the end of the blog, I've listed resources and recommendations to further your learning on reproductive justice.
