About Us:

The Empowered Birth Movement e.V. is an independent nonprofit organization tackling medical racism, obstetric violence, and social determinants of poor maternal and neonatal health through a Systems Thinking and intersectional justice lens. 

Our mission is to reduce maternal health inequities by advancing community-oriented, peer-to-peer support throughout pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. We want to make sure this support is not only accessible and affordable, but also reflects the linguistic and cultural diversity of the country.

We do this through research and advocacy, a Fellowship program for doulas from underrepresented backgrounds, and by mobilizing an intersectoral network of professionals committed to maternal health equity.

Training and Opportunities:

  • We have a very flat hierarchical structure and as we are all volunteers, everyone's contribution is highly valued within the team. We are a very small team and this environment provides a comprehensive understanding of the real behind-the-scenes work of a recently-founded health equity NGO.
  • Volunteers have opportunities to interact and network with equity, anti-racism, and refugee activists and rights defenders and other professionals in the sector.
  • Empowered Birth Movement team members can provide practical sessions and guidance, for example on grant writing, utilizing communications technologies, etc.

About the Position:

The volunteer will apply and develop a range of communications skills through practical exposure to the daily activities of a health equity NGO. 

Primary responsibilities and duties may include:

  • Social media management
  • Website: Assist with continuous improvement of our WordPress website: content entry, SEO, images, diagrams and graphics, assign tags, etc.
  • Drafting, editing, publishing online articles on health equity issues. Potential for translation and proofreading
  • Production of publications and marketing materials
  • Graphic design: the creation of website graphics, social media content, …

Additional responsibilities may include:

  • Desk research and knowledge mapping
  • Partnerships & Development related tasks
  • 10 - 15% Administrative support 
  • If you have other skills that you are interested in developing -- we will make it work.

They should have:

  • Excellent written and oral communication skills in English AND another language (i.e. Spanish, French, Arabic, Pashto, Urdu, Turkish, Hindi at professional level fluency). Additional languages are a strong advantage.
  • Strong command of programs such as WordPress, Canva, and/or Adobe Creative Suite. 
  • Demonstrated interest in refugee/migrant health, maternal health, and/or health equity.
  • Excellent intercultural communication skills, proactive, and ability to multitask. As we are a small team, it’s very important you have a strong ability to work independently without a lot of supervision. Very good organizational and time-management skills.


The internship is able to be completed remotely from anywhere in the world, with a preference for candidates in Germany's time-zone. 

Schedule, duration, and hours/week is flexible.

We are a recently-founded, volunteer-run organization (at the moment!) so of course, every team member is very important -- We want to make joining our team worth your time. Please include in your email what you hope to gain from this volunteer position so we can make it work for you!
