Bring the Rural Black Doula District to your next event.


Rural Black Doula District features facilitated spaces, partnerships, and the RBD Chronicles. Jazzmine is a Black birth scholar and cultural archivist researching Black midwife's reclamation of traditional birth practices. Doula Jazzmine has extensive experience collaborating with organizations on designing equity spaces that center culture, liberatory practices, and Black + Brown spirits in building toward a safer, culturally conscious, and representative space for birth.
