America’s medical inequities has turned giving birth into a battlefield for Black women and their babies. BIRTHING JUSTICE flips that narrative, addressing the issues fueling the maternal health crisis and advocating for birthing equity for Black women. Exploring this national epidemic in Washington, D.C., Georgia, Missouri, and California, the film centers on the women’s lived experiences affected by current policies and the birthing advocates and policymakers at the forefront of fixing a broken system to transform the future, one birth at a time.
