Inspired by elephants who give birth within a circle of support, we envision a world where all people have a circle of support for the entire perinatal period. Birth justice occurs when everyone is equally capable of self-determination during the perinatal period, when their self-determination is supported and amplified. To achieve this we will need both the HOW and the WHAT of birth justice. We will need strategies for tackling systems of power and oppression and we will need strategies for change and resilience. We will also need expertise in health systems, legal systems and the perinatal period. Elephant Circle is here to help you expand your capacity to bring about birth justice.
We can help you build or strengthen your strategies for tackling power and oppression and change and resilience.
We offer coaching to leaders, families, and individuals to help them tackle whatever they are facing in the perinatal period, and consult with individuals and organizations seeking to increase their capacity to address bias on internal, external, structural and organizational levels.
We build local and national networks to address issues of birth and reproductive justice.
We develop accessible reproductive justice educational curricula, materials, and research
We are experts in the health, legal and biological systems related to the perinatal period.
We can help you increase your knowledge in these three key areas.
We don’t limit ourselves to any single issue, preferring to capitalize on the ways issues intersect, overlap and inform one another.
We stay in the game to keep learning from doing.
We keep learning from sharing what we know.
