We’re launching our Capital Campaign!

Projects

We’re listening to the needs of our community and expanding our offerings to serve you better. Check out our exciting new community partnerships below!

Expanded Childbirth Education
Expanded Childbirth Education

We offer great classes, and community feedback led us to create five relevant, subject-specific classes to add to our comprehensive childbirth education, extending evidence-based info on inductions, epidurals, C-section recovery, strategies for labor, and advocacy. We're conducting research to learn its impact, and we're working on increasing language access. Most classes are also taught for Spanish speakers, and we will soon expand to offer perinatal educational content for French and Creole speakers.

The Bronx Doula Access Project
The Bronx Doula Access Project

Our ongoing work in partnership with The Bronx Health Link, providing three components of “doula access” to our community through doula-led childbirth education, birth doulas, and postpartum doulas, engaging local BIPOC-led doula collectives to serve the Bronx community. The Birthing Place, Conscious BIrth Collective, Ashe Birthing Services, Bx (Re)Birth, and Doulas en Español each bring unique and valued contributions to TBHL’s flagship program, as we increase doula access throughout the Bronx!

Currently at capacity for birth and postpartum doulas, but we encourage you to learn more.

Irth
Irth

Irth (as in Birth, but we dropped the B for bias) helps Black and brown women and birthing people have a more safe and empowered pregnancy and parenting experience by allowing you to see how other parents of color, just like you, experienced care at a doctor or hospital. Then we turn those collective experiences into meaningful data to push for change within health systems. As Irth activates pop-up stations to collect reviews across NYC, our Womb Bus will be an ongoing station to support Irth’s mission and uplift our shared goals!

NourishRx
NourishRx

A project in development with Black Women's Blueprint bringing nutritional education and community sourced agriculture via Sistas Van and Womb Bus, our mobile health units, and food demonstration and community activity in Bronx locations with teaching kitchens and community space. A comprehensive collaborative approach built for an intended audience of planning, expectant, and postpartum families. “Food is Medicine” utilizes complementary experts (registered dietitian, integrative health coach, and our perinatal nutrition educator), and measures the program's impact on common conditions our perinatal community often face. We hope to have the project funded to launch in 2025.

CBC’s Together Mentorship
CBC’s Together Mentorship

TOGETHER, A BIPOC DOULA MENTORSHIP PROGRAM provides a unique opportunity for trained birth doulas who wish to expand their work in a very special field. Leaders in the doula profession, founders of collectives, and impactful organizations came together as “Conscious Birth Collective” to create this 24-week program. Beginning a 5th Cohort of birthworkers in Spring 2024, participants work with a committed group of BIPOC doula-mentors, engage in dynamic workshops, receive 1:1 mentorship, connect with a community of like-minded peers, and receive work and apprenticeship opportunities, while supporting families and growing their professional networks!

Youth UpLifting Optimal Health (YULOH)
Youth UpLifting Optimal Health (YULOH)

Through cooperative, project-based learning, YULOH addresses the need of young people in our community for comprehensive reproductive health education and relationship guidance. They develop tools to make informed decisions about their bodies and relationships while training to serve as peer educators. Participants meet regularly for workshops on topics like consent, family planning, symptoms/treatment/prevention of STDs, and breaking unhealthy family cycles. YULOH fosters a supportive network where youth feel safe discussing reproductive health issues openly with program facilitators. They grow in knowledge and confidence, and join community outreach events throughout the Bronx. Together we change the narrative, reduce stigmas related to reproductive health, increase access to quality health education, and enrich our community.
