Elephant Circle is a birth justice organization. We strive to remove obstacles to justice during childbirth and the two years surrounding it. Inspired by elephants who give birth within a circle of support, we envision a world where all people are fully supported and thriving during pregnancy, birth and as they become parents.



Who We Are

We began our practice as queer Latin@s, of diverse heritage, from the Southwest, to attend to the deep wounds in the maternity care system, among incarcerated folks and those who have experienced intimate violence. We focus on presently and historically marginalized groups, groups no one else is helping, & groups that share an intersectional reproductive justice analysis.  

What We Do

 Elephant Circle works on a broad range of issues related to birth and reproductive justice. We love developing prototypes & innovative ways of addressing reproductive justice that can expand and grow through adoption by other organizations or shifts in policy. Our work takes place through community organizing, training, research, outreach, and provision of legal services.

“I want to express how much I appreciate your time effort and assistance in my case. I love the work you are doing outside of my specific case, the meaningful and powerful changes you are effecting in society are so important. I am humbled and so grateful you have taken the time to not only assist me but to make it affordable and allow me to make payments. I hope someday I will be able to donate to your efforts in the greater community of women's rights.”   - Client K.H.
