At Ttáwaxt Birth Justice Center, we bridge indigenous birth justice, ancestral knowledge on community healing, and westernized medicine to build a healthy birthing community and ensure the strength and survival of future generations. Our all-women team of indigenous birth workers provides free programs and services that prepare life givers to make the best decisions they can during pregnancy, labor, childbirth, and after the baby arrives to ensure the next generation continues. As life givers heal and become stronger, all of our community heals.
Pre and Postnatal, Women’s Health Services
In the months, weeks, and days leading up to your due date, it’s important to make healthy decisions for you and your baby, from eating the right foods to attending your prenatal visits. To help expectant life givers prepare for a healthy delivery, we offer doula care, cultural knowledge, and peer support groups.
Our plant and food medicines are the foundation of who we are and help build a healthy body and healthy family. Throughout the seasons we gather, preserve, and give away plant and food medicines with our families.
- Food Sovereignty- Come join the team to gather and preserve food medicine. Workshops are provided throughout the year.
- Plant Medicine- Come join the team to gather and make plant medicine. Learn how they help your mind, body and spirit.
Our elders are our sacred life-givers who hold knowledge for the next generation. We invite our elders to Ttáwaxt Birth Justice Center activities to share valuable knowledge about motherhood, raising children, culture, plant medicine, sacred foods, language, arts, and love. If you are an elder who would like to join please sign up.
