About Us

The Prison Birth Project is an organization focused on reproductive justice, working to provide education, support, and advocacy to women at the intersection of the criminal justice system and motherhood.

Our goal is to provide tools to help incarcerated and previously incarcerated women make empowering birth choices, and to provide continuous care through the transition into parenting. Previously incarcerated folks, mothers, and those most affected by the issues and mission of The Prison Birth Project are encouraged to volunteer, though all are welcome!

The Prison Birth Project mission and focus is reproductive justice and self-determination. We believe that power based structures in society can lead to failings that all to often leave poor people, people of color, and women under-served and living in unjust conditions. We recognize that it is not a mother's own personal failing that caused her incarceration but often lack of systemic support for life and parenthood. We seek to use a non-hierarchical structure to support work that helps to redistribute power, to help create a more just society.
